Zendesk now Available in English, French, German, Italian, Japanese, Korean, Portuguese, Spanish, and simplified and traditional Chinese

San Francisco-based Zendesk announced at LeWeb ‘11 Paris that it has gone global with its cloud-based help desk software. In addition to now being available in 10 languages, Zendesk introduced new features allowing its users to efficiently manage outbound support communications in virtually any language.

At the conference, Zendesk has showcased the beta of a new support agent interface localised in English, French, German, Italian, Japanese, Korean, Portuguese, Spanish, and both simplified and traditional Chinese. Zendesk has revolutionised the way organisations support their customers; now, support teams around the world can use Zendesk to deliver superior customer service, in their native language.

“2011 has been the year of international expansion for Zendesk,” said Mikkel Svane, Zendesk’s CEO. “We have more than 10,000 customers reaching more than 50 million users in more than 100 countries. To serve this growing global market, we have taken a huge step in providing easy-to-implement multi-language capabilities in Zendesk.”

One new capability is Dynamic Content that allows for creating automated responses that can be delivered to customers based on their language preferences, helping to ensure better communications. For instance, customers can receive responses to frequently asked questions, such as how to reset a password, in their native language. In addition, Zendesk can now automatically detect the customer’s language and route tickets to a support agent who understands it, improving the response times.

“Zendesk’s Dynamic Content has helped us to streamline our global support,” said Andreas Urban, Director of Global Services at speexx digital publishing AG. “Now, we can not only set up workflows to automatically assign tickets to the right agent based on language, but also respond to a ticket in any language we support with just one pre-defined response.”
