Use of MadTranslations Translation and Localization Services Allowed Winding River Solutions to Complete Translations of a Government Application and Website into French in Two Weeks

Winding River Solutions and MadTranslations La Jolla, CA, and Edmonton, Alberta, Canada — October, 28 2014 — Winding River Solutions Inc. now relies on MadTranslations, Inc., a subsidiary of MadCap Software, as its provider of translation and localization services. Winding River is a leading provider of custom software development and technical training for companies and government agencies. Using the services and support provided by MadTranslations, Winding River was able to speed the translation of a Canadian government application and website into French to meet the customer’s deadline.


Since Canada is a bilingual country, it is critical that all government resources are offered in two languages: English and French,” said Judy Forest, project manager and business analyst for Winding River. “Joining forces with MadCap and MadTranslations has given us the confidence to efficiently deliver on this requirement and provide state-of-the-art services to our community.”

Delivering on Dual-Language Demands

For years, Winding River has relied on MadCap Flare to develop its online Help, which is embedded into its applications, as well as standalone print documentation. This summer, the company needed to translate a government client’s print manuals and HTML-based pages into French. However, translating content page-by-page soon became daunting.

Winding River sought out a solution that would help rapidly meet its customer's translation requirement. Given Winding River's success with MadCap Flare and the seamless integration of MadCap products, MadTranslations was the clear choice to meet its translation and localization goals. Through a deep understanding of MadCap’s software and the translation process, MadTranslations was able to complete the translation of Winding River’s application and website content within only two weeks.

Following the project’s success, Winding River continues to enhance its user experience. Currently, the company is looking into incorporating videos into their online Help and documentation using the MadCap Mimic video and software simulation creation tool.

“Providing seamless integration with MadCap Flare, MadTranslations has proven a wonderful investment—going beyond our expectations to meet our customer requirements. MadCap also offers excellent resources and assistance to help us maximize our use of MadCap Flare,” Ms. Forest said. “MadCap and MadTranslations have provided us delightful, responsive service and remarkable support, with ongoing updates and communications to help us achieve our translation goal in record time, and we are excited to move forward with them for future projects.”

“As a leader in software development and technical training, Winding River is a trusted partner for many large and wide-reaching organizations, including government offices, companies and municipalities,” said Anthony Olivier, MadCap founder and CEO. “We are thrilled by Winding River's success in using MadCap Flare along with the translation services provided by MadTranslations to meet its client’s demands.
