Alibaba Cloud and SDL announce partnership to aid brand development in Asia

In a press release on 13 September, UK software and translation company SDL announced that it is partnering with China’s Alibaba Cloud to launch a co-developed solution to assist global brands’ expansion across Asia
The strategic partnership will combine SDL’s expertise as “a leader in global content management, translation and digital experience” with Alibaba’s promotion of international trade and extensive cloud computing services.
Global brands are increasingly keen to break into Asian markets as they continue to grow, but entering such markets brings language and compliance challenges.
“This partnership solves these problems for companies, making it almost effortless to build a local presence and engage with customers across difference languages and devices”, said Thomas Labarthe, SDL’s Chief Revenue Officer.
