A more accurate free translator

With the recent adoption of Social Networking by the professional community, it's becoming more important to find ways to expand global reach by implementing the use of translated content. For years the translation community has cornered the market by enforcing a bulk-rate system, enforcing steep prices and expensive minimums, making it a luxury for people seeking short text translations. Unfortunately, it's rarely worth it. Ackuna, the new free crowdsourcing machine translator from Translation Services USA, provides a simple and affordable alternative to those unreasonable standards. With over a thousand registered users and over 1.5M translations in it's first month, Ackuna is growing in popularity, working to meet the rapidly growing international demand for making information universally accessible and provide the world with a better way to communicate.

On Ackuna, users can enter their short text just like they would when using a typical free translator. The results are filtered through the community and corrections are crowdsourced. Ackuna accomplishes enhanced translation quality by employing the use of their custom proprietary algorithm, TranslationRank, which acts as a filtering system for all submitted corrections and guaranteeing 99.9% accuracy in all translated text. Designed to work similar to Google's PageRank, TranslationRank evaluates the quality of linguists, their level of commitment, hard work and expertise, ensuring users are provided with quality translations. Users can sign-up for Ackuna at no cost and choose to have their free Ackuna-translated text proofread by a professional translator at $.07/word. As well, any text that's been translated previously within the Ackuna translation database will be deducted from the total cost.

With the increasing need for the integration of internationalization and globalization, Twitter and Facebook are becoming more and more popular among executives and various business professionals. Social Networking has become a true value to companies, as well as individuals, looking to do business in the global market. Bloggers and executives alike can benefit from such a service as Ackuna. It's important that professionals using social networking as a means to communicate with their global community are able to maintain their professional voice. Translation is the critical path to accomplishing these goals. No matter the size or scope, professionally translated and proofread text is no longer an option but a necessity. High quality translations have become a true reflection of professional integrity. Ackuna offers integrity at a price anyone can afford.
