Access2online now offers digital and document accessibility in any major language

Website and document accessibility specialists Access2online Inc announces today that it has partnered with ASTA-USA Translations Inc, one of the world’s largest and longest-established translation service providers. Their specialist linguists can translate content to or from any major language in the world.

That now means Access2online can audit websites for accessibility, and remediate PDFs and other online documents in almost any language. When it comes to captioning videos or producing their transcripts or audio descriptions, language is no longer a barrier with ASTA-USA carrying out the translation or copy editing.

If an authority or jurisdiction stipulates that certain content has to be accessible, the same is true for any translated content. That includes localizing all the hidden tags required by disabled users. Between Access2online and ASTA-USA, documentation and online content will be understood—and compliant.

Peter Shikli, CEO of Access2online, said today: “We are delighted that we have found the right partner for translating all content. With ASTA-USA’s help, we can make websites and documentation accessible to everyone—in virtually any language.”
