Aligning with contact center agents on requests or issues can be difficult for customers. Now, imagine some customers not being able to have these conversations at all because they speak a different language.

Having the ability to communicate with customers in their primary language improves their experience, reduces call-time, and showcases a regional focus around the globe. Using automated translation embedded in your digital channels simplifies communications and enables existing agents to handle interactions in multiple languages.

Twilio Flex has validated an integration with Lionbridge Language Cloud to enable contact centers to add omni-language support for Chat, SMS, and WhatsApp, directly into your agents’ primary desktop. Now your agents can communicate with customers through their preferred channel and language using AI-based Neural Machine Translation (NMT).

This solution allows you to build your Twilio Flex contact center with global customer experiences in mind without having to hire employees in each region. Imagine the customer experience you can provide with your skilled agents being able to handle multiple conversations in the desired language!

Agent and Customer experience with the Lionbridge integration

Twilio Flex customers can work with Lionbridge Language Cloud’s patented technology to train the solution to optimize brand voice and consistency during translation. This helps ensure translations understand industry terminology, brand keywords, and responses specific to your solutions.
