Edmodo’s social learning network connects over 28 million teachers and students globally. While getting increasingly popular in many non–English speaking countries, localization has become a high priority of Edmodo to support its international growth.
With the goal to crowdsource its localization and invite its large base of international users to help translate, Edmodo tried to build an internal system to manage the crowdsourced translation process. However, the internally built system turned out to be rather cumbersome and was not getting the traction that Edmodo wanted.
While looking for solutions to improve their crowdsourced translation process, Edmodo stumbled across OneSky and realized how easy it could be to run a crowdsourced translation project using OneSky.
With OneSky’s extensive tech file format support, Edmodo only needed to upload their resource files and our system could automatically parse the files to extract the human readable text. Their volunteers could then translate easily using our easy–to–use online translation collaboration tool.
By using OneSky translation management platform, Edmodo’s localization project has been a huge success. Not only did OneSky help to save more than 99% of Edmodo’s engineering effort, in only a matter of days, Edmodo saw one of their most important markets went from 0% to 90% translated!
With the help of OneSky, Edmodo has increased the reach of their product by 4X in just two months!
