The leginda.de web portal run by Leginda GmbH, an innovative service provider, allows customers to order professional translations in more than 40 languages and over 1,600 language combinations around the clock at a fixed price. The assignments are carried out by a network of affiliated translators located all over the world. Leginda selects the best translator for the customer based on the language combination or specialisation, and takes care of communication and controlling too. The client is notified by email as soon as the translation is available, and they can collect the text and invoice through the portal. The company is enjoying strong growth and has to contend with the ever-increasing volume of orders, all the while maintaining the highest quality.
On the hunt for an internet platform for ordering professional translations The customer needed a suitable platform that could meet these requirements. Since there wasn’t a suitable standard solution available on the market, after a careful selection process Leginda ultimately chose Meta-Level, which won the customer over with its many years of experience in developing customised software systems. The deciding factor was the ‘construction kit’ for workflow systems that Meta-Level offered, which already provided many basic functionalities.
Following a few weeks of development and testing, the www.leginda.de portal went live in April 2009. Since then, several additions (like express deliveries or the integration of a document management system) have been implemented and put into operation to meet the needs of the growing business. Leginda now handles several hundred translations per month – and order numbers are only going one way: up.
