Lionbridge Recognized as a Leading Innovator in the Digital Content Industry; Named to 2006 EContent 100

WALTHAM, Mass., Nov. 30 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Lionbridge Technologies, Inc., , today announced it was named to EContent Magazine's 2006 list of the top 100 companies in the Digital Content Industry for its continued innovations in the field of global content delivery. A key factor in the Lionbridge recognition is the Company's Freeway(TM) web-based language delivery platform which was launched in April 2006. As the world's leading provider of translation services, Lionbridge enables its customers to securely connect Freeway with leading content management systems (CMS) through a simple web services interface. This allows content owners to have content automatically pushed to Lionbridge for translation, and once completed, reinserted into the CMS system for global publishing. As a result, companies are able to speed up their update cycles using a touch-free translation management process, and can focus on the core task of managing and publishing content rather than on exporting and importing files.

"Earning this recognition from one of the most respected magazines of the digital content industry validates our view of how digital content should be readied for global distribution," said Kevin Bolen, chief marketing officer, Lionbridge. "Since the Freeway launch earlier this year our clients have embraced the platform and are using it to connect their CMS systems for automatic project transfer, to upload jobs directly to the portal, to track projects status and financials, and to collaborate with project teams, all for free. By streamlining the tactical language management processes, Freeway is enabling clients to easily outsource translation services as a business process and freeing content owners to focus on more strategic global deployment opportunities. As a result, organizations can increase productivity while reducing overall costs of content management."

Lionbridge is recognized within the Content Management category in the 2006 EContent 100 list. Companies were profiled based on market share, technology leadership, and innovation, leadership in the digital content industry.
