Leading AI Scaleup and Translation-As-A-Service Specialist Extends Integration Capability with Customer Service Platform Zendesk
Unbabel, the Translation-as-a-Service provider that blends Neural Machine Translation with a global crowd of human linguists to break down language barriers between enterprises and their customers, has announced the extension of its integration with Zendesk, one of the world’s leading customer service and engagement platforms.
Zendesk customers will now be able to experience Unbabel Chat for the first time (building upon existing Support and Guide functionality) bringing near-real-time translation to the platform’s instant messaging platform, and solidifying Unbabel’s role as the Premier Translation Partner of Zendesk.
Vasco Pedro, CEO and co-founder of Unbabel, commented: “This latest development in the partnership between Unbabel and Zendesk will remove traditional pain points in the customer service experience. Whereas previously, receiving support in your native language could be impacted by a range of factors from team illness or holiday to seasonality, today we are providing users with an always-on support network.
“We’re hugely impressed by the incredible ecosystem that Zendesk has built over the past decade-plus and we are incredibly excited to partner with them to provide even more value to our joint customers.”
There will be a public demonstration of the latest Chat integration at ‘Relate’, Zendesk’s flagship event in San Francisco, which runs from 12th-14th November. Unbabel will be a Gold Sponsor of the event for the first time, and can be found at Stand G:2.
