Why retailers choose Demandware and TranslateMedia

Demandware provides a different model for delivering ecommerce solutions to retailers. Traditionally, retailers would need to invest in the hardware and software to power their ecommerce stores and then hire developers to maintain the platforms and add the functionality that the business requires in order to remain competitive.

Demandware removes the need for businesses to spend time and money on hardware, software and developers by offering a highly-scalable cloud-based ecommerce platform. This allows businesses to concentrate on growing their businesses. This innovative approach has allowed Demandware to become a market leader in SaaS ecommerce solutions.

Now it makes even more sense for small and large ecommerce retailers to use Demandware for their multi-lingual international online stores. The Language Cartridge provides an end-to-end solution that allows businesses to integrate the translation management process straight into Demandware. The seamless integration with Demandware’s Business Manager allows marketing and ecommerce managers to select the content they would like translated, obtain a quote, track progress of their translation work and have the completed translations returned straight into their ecommerce store.

About Demandware

Demandware is a public eCommerce merchant headquartered in Boston, Massachusetts. The organisation was founded in 2004 and has since expanded to offices in France and Germany. Demandware has expertise in delivering web content management and ecommerce solutions to organisations in the fashion, health and beauty and sporting goods sectors.

Demandware powers more than 160 retailers across more than 600 websites around the globe including Adidas, Clarins, Fila, Lacoste, Lancome, Mothercare, Puma, Quicksilver, L’Oreal and Ugg, Australia.

Demandware supports an extensive set of pre-built customised integrations for a variety of applications. These approved extensions, referred to as “Demandware LINK Cartridges”, are available from the Demandware LINK Marketplace – described by Demandware as a “one-stop-shop for pre-built integrations to Demandware Commerce.”

At TranslateMedia, we work with a number of clients in the fashion retail sector who use Demandware to power their ecommerce stores. We’re able to connect our translation management system to Demandware – allowing clients using the SaaS ecommerce platform to receive quotes, send work for translation then preview and edit any translated content before it is published on their websites.

This streamlined workflow improves efficiency while ensuring that only the content that requires translation is submitted. Furthermore, we can offer clients additional cost benefits by using translation memory to recall any previously translated content on their Demandware site – further reducing costs and increasing efficiency.
