Universal Dialog, a provider of multilingual translation, localization and language management services, announced today that it provided the Spanish translation services for Intuit’s TurboTax® en Español tax preparation software and TurboTax® en Español state (California only) tax preparation software.
According to the U.S. Census Bureau, based on July 2001 data the Hispanic population within the United States has grown to approximately 37 million, representing more than 13 percent of the U.S. population. According to the 2000 U.S. Census, there are at least 10.9 million Hispanics in California, representing more than 32 percent of the state’s population. Universal Dialog CEO Alexandra Briskin states, “Intuit and many other of our translation services customers are wisely recognizing that the Hispanic population has substantial purchasing power in the United States. Their investment in Spanish translation for software interfaces, product packaging, operation manuals, advertising, customer relationship management and websites is increasingly important to expanding market share.” Ms. Briskin warns “For those companies who plan to market their products and services toward Hispanic and other non-English speaking populations, it is extremely important to ensure that all translations are performed by highly trained professionals within their market sector. As well, all cultural differences must be considered when preparing any communication in another language.” “Universal Dialog’s translation expertise, editorial process and efficiency enabled us to rapidly develop this product line with the highest integrity and quality standards”, notes Barry Saik, Director of Brand Marketing for TurboTax.
