Computer Aided Translation tools have made life easier for all the people who work in the translation industry. If anyone wants to translate a bunch of content at once, a CAT tool comes in really handy. Mostly CAT tools are only used for the translation of textual content, it would be great if you can also translate visual content as well.
The point of using a CAT tool is to translate content in bulk and then get it ready for quality check with the keen eye of an experienced translator. ImageTranslate becomes a perfect fit for the job as it can translate images in bulk and in 40+ different languages at the same time, and it also enables the capability to make changes to the translated images with Typesetting & Magic Eraser features.
ImageTranslate can also be easily white-labeled and thus it can gel in with your application seamlessly. Overall, ImageTranslate’s API will improve a CAT Tool’s capabilities, and make it a tool that goes beyond the translation of textual content.
E-commerce Website/Online Stores
According to Statista’s report about ‘Retail e-commerce sales worldwide from 2014 to 2025’ “In 2021, retail e-commerce sales amounted to approximately 4.9 trillion U.S. dollars worldwide. This figure is forecast to grow by 50 percent over the next four years, reaching about 7.4 trillion dollars by 2025”

Now again for better communication with your potential customers that are across the border, you’ll need to translate all the content on your store to the preferred language of the target audience. On the E-commerce store, you can integrate ImageTranslate so that when a seller uploads images, the website can display and translate product images according to the language chosen language of the website.
This will not only improve communication, but it will also help in conversion, as a product image is the sole reference point for the buyer to make a purchase decision, a point we had already mentioned in our previous blog on 5 tips to optimize the Ecommerce product page.
