For translation associations, companies, universities or institutions that do not have their own daily news service, the Inttranews solution can be used to create and host a network of linguists of unlimited size, to discuss content of topical interest, such as issues of major concern to linguists, or events of genuine value (the calls for tender announced via the news service were worth more than EUR 370 million in 2008 alone).
Network managers can co-brand the leading daily news bulletin for the language industry with their organisation's logo, automatically distribute the newsletter to their network, and use a specific back office to host an unlimited number of network members – all for a single annual fee of only EUR 100.
Network members can parameter their individual profiles to receive daily news reports corresponding to their own fields of interest, suggest further content in order to customize the scope of the bulletin, and discuss reports on-line in public with other linguists, or in private with other members of their network.
Network members also have access to Inttranews archives, containing some 45,000 searchable reports, classified by subject category, of unique value for market research. The articles having attracted comments are classified by reader interest, and network members are automatically informed when an article is being discussed by their network.
The simple, low-cost solution is an extremely powerful, global networking system that is all the more attractive for linguists in that it enables access, free of charge, to daily information of unique quality.
As of its release, the system has been adopted by market-leading organisations such as GALA, an international association for the localization, translation, internationalization, and globalization industry, and TermNet, an international co-operation forum for companies, universities, institutions and associations involved in the terminology market.
