Planned maintenance window on March 24, 2019, 06:00 UTC+1

Posted by Edouard on March 12, 2019

Hello there!

In order to improve WebTranslateIt’s performance we will do an important hardware upgrade to WebTranslateIt’s servers.

In order to do this upgrade we will need to be unavailable on Sunday, March 24th 2019, 06:00 UTC+1 as we move our database to a new server. We expect the downtime to not exceed 2 hours. The website will be unavailable from Sunday, March 24th 2019, 06:00 UTC+1 to Sunday, March 24th 2019, 08:00 UTC+1

As always, we’ll keep you updated on this blog post and we’ll also post live updates on @webtranslateit on Twitter.

We apologize for this planned downtime and we hope you will appreciate the performance improvements this will allow.

PS: For the nitty-gritty details, we’re moving WebTranslateIt out of a large, single server to two smaller, newer servers with loads of RAM (we’ll have more than 4 times the amount of RAM that we currently have). This will allow for more background workers, which means faster file imports and file generations and faster suggestions. We’ll still be hosted by Leaseweb in the Netherlands which have been amazing in the past 3 years.

WebTranslateIt has reached carbon neutrality

Posted by Estelle on September 11, 2017

We believe it is now impossible to deny global warming and the fact that we are all responsible for it, this is why we have decided to offset our carbon footprint.
We first had to calculate it, which was not easy because many websites claim to give accurate results. The best carbon footprint calculator we found was CarbonFootprint.com. The list of questions they ask is very thorough but it is still easy to answer all of them as long as you have access to your company’s expenses.

To our surprise, we discovered that the biggest impact didn’t come from our travels, electricity or water consumption but from the manufactured goods we are buying, especially high-tech ones: laptops, phones. We work remotely, so we don’t have to commute, and our servers are hosted in an already carbon-neutral datacenter in the Netherlands (Leaseweb’s amazing AMS-01).

We looked for solutions to compensate our carbon footprint for the past year and fortunately there are quite a few non-profit organizations that will offer you to participate to projects helping develop sustainable energies all over the world, especially in developing countries, or even just initiatives as simple as reforestation.

We decided to get involved with the Fondation Goodplanet which was created by the photographer and environmentalist Yann Arthus-Bertrand.

We are now really proud to announce that WebTranslateit is

We will keep making daily efforts to change our consuming habits and will collaborate further with the Fondation Goodplanet. Join us in the fight, we believe climate change is not a fatality.

WebTranslateIt now sponsors Málaga Bikes

Posted by Estelle on August 7, 2017

WebTranslateIt’s owner Edouard has been into cycling for a few years now, from the long and flat roads of the French Atlantic coast up through the wilderness of Connemara and down to the Andalusian mountains of Málaga.

It just seemed natural that if we ever were to sponsor any sport event, it would be bike related. And after a few interesting encounters, we were given the opportunity to sponsor not only an event, but a team.

There are many cycling clubs in Andalusia, for its climate allows the sport all year round —just be an early riser in the Summer!— and we decided to help a new club start out. Málaga Bikes was created in June 2017 by Bruno Cuesta and counts 8 members such as Victor Cardenas and Alejandro Paez, Andalusian mountain bike and road bike rising stars.

If you want to know more about their exploits, don’t hesitate to follow them on Strava. We are really proud of our guys!

WebTranslateIt’s new visual identity

Posted by Edouard on April 17, 2013

These last three weeks have been very busy at WebTranslateIt. We released several updates to WebTranslateIt’s visual identity. We hope you like it.

New logo

WebTranslateIt has a new logo. It’s simple and fun. It comes in two flavours.

If you’d like to use WebTranslateIt’s logo on your website, feel free to download a high resolution version on our Press page.

New home page

We updated our homepage. Some customers have already noticed it and sent us great feedback. It’s cleaner and does a better job at presenting what WebTranslateIt is. It also showcases some of our best customers and testimonials.

WebTranslateIt new homepage

All the pages around it were completely revamped and rewritten like the Tour page, which presents WebTranslateIt’s management tools and translation tools.

We also added a new page called Tools for WebTranslateIt, which introduces a few tools built for WebTranslateIt. We’ll update this page regularly and will also showcase some of these tools in the blog.

New Help Section

The Help section received a complete overhaul.

WebTranslateIt help section

This page should does a better job at helping users, pointing them to the FAQ, the documentation or filing a support request.

We also moved the documentation website to webtranslateit.com/docs and redesigned the documentation.

Finally, support requests now allow users to attach as many files as they want.

New About pages

People love to know who’s behind a website and what’s the story of its inception. So we redesigned the About page:

WebTranslateIt about section

We also have a new Team page and Press page. Check them out!

WebTranslateIt in blue

This is probably the most important change for the users: we changed the background of the software’s interface from green to blue.

WebTranslateIt about section

This change may seem small, but we were really careful on this choosing the new colour. We wanted it to be neutral while reflecting WebTranslateIt’s new visual identity.

We hope you like these changes. Don’t hesitate to send us an e-mail if you have any feedback.
