Soul Plant and Smartcat announced a strategic sales partnership to help Ukrainian translation agencies and organizations work more effectively, minimize operating costs, and enter a new translation business environment represented by Smartcat’s services and ecosystem. The leading cloud-based localization platform and the Ukrainian-based LSP will team up to integrate and market their services and solutions for collaboration.

As the translation market grows, with content volumes increasing exponentially, deadlines shortening, and customers getting more demanding, many market players cannot take the challenge and leave the market. Reasons vary, from the inability to find enough clients to inefficient processes and prohibitive operating costs, yet each of them pushes the business closer to bankruptcy. To stay afloat and thrive, LSPs have to implement new powerful tech solutions. And Smartсat is the one to help them leave “the old ways” of doing business.

“By partnering with Smartсat we want to bring new tech solutions to as many agencies all over Ukraine as possible,” says Meir Majewski, Soul Plant founder and CEO. “We understand the unprecedented need for cloud-based translation tools merged with a sophisticated international environment and marketing tools. This partnership will make it easier for translation professionals to improve their business and financial operations, find new customers, and create additional revenue”.

“The Smartсat team builds a new collaborative, professional, international community of linguists, translation companies and end customers,” says Arseniy Konov, Smartcat Head of Marketing. “We provide cloud-based CAT tools for translation, financial brokerage services for all parties, and lucrative revenue-making opportunities from our partnership programs. Together with SoulPlant, we hope to push Ukraine’s translation industry to a new level of efficiency.”

The partnership is a great step forward for many Ukrainian translators and translation agencies to optimize and improve their collaboration with each other, leverage an international marketplace, and get expert support from Smartcat.
