Unbabel for Zendesk Frequently Asked Questions

Why should I provide multilingual customer support? Doesn’t everyone speak English?

It’s not just to cut down on wasted time copying and pasting from an error-prone Google Translate, nor to save on hiring agents who speak your customers’ languages — 74% of online shoppers say they are “more likely to purchase from the same brand again if the after-sales care is in their native language,” says Common Sense Advisory.

OK. So how long will it take my team to learn how to use Unbabel?

With Zendesk and Salesforce, there’s almost nothing to learn — only to point out that it’s been installed and that enabling automatic translation on tickets and cases is 1 click away. A 15 minute demo is all you need.

And what about the quality of the translations? Come on, we’ve all used Google Translate…

Unbabel has a global community of over 40,000 bilingual translators who work via their own dedicated mobile apps and desktop portals. We use machine learning and artificial intelligence to send them not just the original text, but suggested translations that they can amend with a few taps or clicks, saving Unbabel’s clients time and money in delivering trustworthy native-language customer service at scale.

Nice. How long does the translation of a ticket take?

In our most popular language pairs, you can expect our human-powered translations to take less than 20 minutes, meaning that customer service tickets can be delivered within 90 minutes, on average.

And what about non-customer support translations? Can Unbabel help me out?

It depends. We want to focus on creating value in this important vertical, but our vision is to build the world’s translation layer, so we’re always tinkering away on projects that can bring us closer to this. If you’ve got a LOT of content (e.g. thousands of blog posts, product descriptions) and you think you can connect with our powerful API, get in touch with our sales team today to see if we can help out.
