available directly in the game development environment, through the Unity Asset Store,
making it completely effortless to manage various language versions of a game.Transfluent
updates the translations each time a developer builds a new version of the game, thus
keeping all of the language versions up to date, with no additional effort. Transfluent
also provides translations of the app store description and other marketing materials.

The newly announced partnerships are in line with Transfluent’s strategy of being
present everywhere where content is being created and published online. Jani Penttinen,
CEO and founder of Transfluent stated: “According to some estimates, online language
translation will grow to a USD 30 billion industry in the next five years. As the current
technology leader in the category, Transfluent is well positioned to become the market
leader in the rapidly growing segment.”
