Part of one of the largest conglomerates in the world, Mitsubishi were looking to push forward their substantial business operations in Europe. They required localised versions of one of their websites for several territories.

An innovative custom API

In addition to our expertise in translation services, Guildhawk offers innovative language solutions for clients thanks to our team of specialist developers and project managers. For Mitsubishi, we built a custom application programming interface (API) which allowed them to manage content independently and drove considerable cost savings within a two-year period.

Our expertise

Guildhawk’s solution integrated with the client’s existing website content management system (CMS). The aim was to reduce time-consuming tasks which tied up internal resources and to reduce a costly dependence on external providers. We provided Mitsubishi with full control over the way their content was managed.

Our new module for their CMS allowed for automatic extraction of the website’s entire English content. Then, once the translation and localisation work had been completed, the module also facilitated the import of translations as direct updates to the website. The result? Improved internal processes for Mitsubishi, and a cost saving of £250,000 over two years.
