The challenge: balancing speed and empathy

You can think of Expedia’s User Happiness Team as an elite task force. Trained to deliver highly personal support, Expedia user advocates were racking up incredible CSAT scores. But the logistical complexities of translating customer conversations kept response times high while dragging down operational efficiency. To solve these problems, the team would need a solution that combines the speed of machine translation with the authenticity of a native speaker.

Digital support translation, analogue feel

With Unbabel’s AI-powered, human-refined translation solution, the Expedia User Happiness team was able to boost CSAT scores even higher, to 94.7% in foreign languages, while slashing first reply and full resolution time by 50% and 45%, respectively.

Don’t just take our word for it
