Multilingual support made easy



Zendesk is a great tool for keeping your customers happy. The trouble is, in today’s connected world you are more and more likely to reach customers who speak languages you don’t understand. Transfluent for Zendesk is an elegant solution to the problem; professional quality language translation built directly to the Zendesk user interface!


Using Transfluent, you will be able to quickly read incoming customer messages in any language. You can get a machine-generated draft free-of-charge with a single click (or even automatically if you prefer). This is usually enough to understand what the customer wants. This is for your eyes only, so potentially funny grammar from the machine translator is an acceptable tradeoff for getting instant translation free of charge.

If you cannot understand the machine translated post, you can always order a professional translation with a single click. Please note: nothing you write will ever be published using machine translation, it is for your reading convenience only.


You can then type in a reply in English, and when you send it, the response is first sent to a professional translator, so that your customers receive your message in their own language. From the customer’s point of view it will appear as if they are dealing with someone who speaks their language. This shows your respect to them, and builds trust to your brand.


Consider this example; you need to serve customers speaking 10 languages. Are you able to hire 10 customer service agents who each speak different languages? If you are, will they have enough work to do? The odds are, the tasks are not spread evenly across languages, so some of the agents will be busy while others are awaiting for work.

What if you could just hire a team of English-speaking customer service agents, who can communicate in any language using Transfluent’s Zendesk integration? You probably wouldn’t need to hire 10 people, like in the example above, you might be able to serve all your customers with just 3 people!


As an added benefit, Transfluent is fully scalable. Receive an email in a completely new language? No worries. Transfluent has translators for most languages, ready to translate your messages 24 hours a day, every day of the week.


  • Easily read incoming messages in foreign languages
  • Write reply in English. Your post will be professionally translated before sending it to the customer
  • English-speaking customer service team will be able to handle customers around the world in their native language

When first started, the app will prompt you to log in. If you already have an account with Transfluent, you can proceed by logging in.

If you do not have an account with Transfluent, you can create one by selecting sign-up and providing your email. An account will be created for you and details will be sent by email.

Multiple users

If you have multiple agents using the app, we suggest you create sub-accounts for each under your own master account as opposed to having everyone register by themselves.
