Sydney, Australia July 25, 2015 —Startup TinyButton is the first product ever to allow users to translate and localize hundreds of pages into dozens of languages rapidly and automatically. This tool for websites and web applications makes the process of localizing sites to different countries easy by using a friendly live editor, a network of over 15,000 translators for 50 languages, and an automated, rule-based localization and approval workflow. This automated system identifies content and creates a context for the translators almost instantly – helping increase accuracy and reduce turnaround time.
TinyButton’s unique full stack localization tool gives users three different options. You can localize your site yourself by inserting your own translated and localized content, or opt for real-time human translation, with its high availability of clusters of translation partners. Machine translation is also available.
“TinyButton was born out of necessity,” explains TinyButton Founder and CEO, Sinan Kaya. “Our team has built and served over 20,000 ecommerce businesses and online services, yet we never found a tool that could efficiently localize our websites end to end and had a simple, intuitive user interface until we built TinyButton. After seeing a quick revenue rise for clients trialing our product, we realized the extent of our potential, and today we are able to localize a 1,000-page website in 45 minutes.”
There is an increasing need for businesses to sell themselves globally in order to stand out from saturated English-speaking markets. The global demand for language services and technology is estimated to be worth $37 billion, and is growing by over 6% every year. Unlike other products on this still fairly new market, TinyButton is 100% search engine friendly, and it also offers proactive, automated translation very time new content is added to the site.
“TinyButton’s breadth of services means that it does so much more than just translate websites,” adds Sinan. “In today’s market it’s literally impossible to localize sites without coding, and we do it all with minimal effort from our clients. TinyButton is available for anyone who wants their site to talk to the rest of the world, so we hope you like it as much as we do.”
Based in Sydney, Australia, TinyButton is a diverse network of professionals, including developers, creative designers, professional problem solvers, experienced leaders and sales and customer service gurus, all working together to translate and display your site in multiple languages with one line of code.
NEW YORK, August 14, 2015, Newsmeister announced today that it has reached the 15,000 user milestone in less than three months. The trivia app presents users with three-minute long games that keep them both entertained and up-to-date with current events.
In today’s fast-moving, mobile world, Newsmeister provides a fun and convenient way to stay on top of political and social news. The startup’s goal is to engage people in current events whenever they have time, whether they are on the subway, on their coffee break, or relaxing on the couch at home. Since launching in May, Newsmeister’s user base has grown rapidly in the U.S., as well as in Canada, the U.K, Russia and Italy.
In the app, players battle against the clock to answer questions based on trending news stories from around the world. The quizzes are updated daily, so even the most avid newsreader remains challenged and informed. Gone are the days of answering pub quiz questions about 1980s football champions — Newsmeister tests users’ knowledge about the world around them in real time, and with the added fun of friendly competition.
In addition, Newsmeister provides brief contextual information about each question topic, as well as a link to a related article once they submit an answer. This enables users to conveniently dive deeper into the stories that interest them.
“Reading the news is critically important because it’s how people stay informed about what is going on in their communities and the world,” said Tim Holmgren, CEO and Founder of Newsmeister. “There is this widespread idea that Millennials are not interested in current events, but this is inaccurate. They just have different ways of consuming it. Newsmeister was built for this new paradigm.”
Millennials are voracious consumers of the news. Eighty-five percent of Millennials say that keeping up with the news is at least somewhat important to them, and 69 percent say they read news everyday. According to the American Press Institute, “This newest generation of American adults is anything but “newsless,” passive, or civically uninterested, although their reading habits are ‘strikingly different’ than previous generations.” Unsurprisingly, Millennials lead other age groups in media consumption on smartphones, and they prefer to read the news in “discrete” sessions that are woven throughout their day.
Newsmeister was built with these habits in mind. Moreover, Newsmeister delivers a social experience, as social media’s influence over what people read continues to grow. Users can invite their family and friends to compete via Facebook or email, or play with other members of the Newsmeister community. To show how you stack up, the app shows a percentage of how many players worldwide answered the question correctly.
The app is available for free download on iOS and Android. The Apple App Store rated the Newsmeister app with 4.5/5 after minor beta launch glitches were rectified.
Founded in 2015, Newsmeister urges users to “Read the News. Play The Game. Learn Something New.” Showing the door to boring, outdated trivia questions for which you need an encyclopaedia to answer, the trivia app deals only in current events happening in the world around you right now.
