For a company with such prevalent and powerful international connections, the ad-hoc translation of documents has basic value. Therefore, the company decided to install the PROMT Translation Server (PTS) solution, allowing for the provision of translation to a considerable number of employees concurrently. This solution allows access to the translation server via a web interface: therefore, it is very easy to connect new workplaces, and employees can also use the program from remote locations.


The company employees actively use the PROMT solution in spite of the fact that many of them can speak English quite well. The difference is that machine translation allows getting the text directly into the native language, and it is always easier to work with such text.

Though our specialists, as a rule, know English quite well, studying of documents in foreign languages usually requires some extra time. Use of PROMT solution allows them to get necessary documents in various formats –Word, Excel, PowerPoint – directly in Russian ", – Igor Yezhov, the head of IT Department operation office commented.
