Are you a small to midsized matchmaker with several clients who are more fluent in Spanish than English? Perhaps you are a large matchmaking firm, with multilingual matchmakers? In either case, are you looking for a system that will help you more effectively communicate with your clients, regardless of which language they primarily speak?

The Lé Connex Matchmaking System is the only true multilingual system designed for matchmakers. Our system utilizes Microsoft Translator, which is one of the most comprehensive enterprise-level translation APIs available.

At the heart of the system is the Primary Language. When you log into the system, this will be the language in which all text is displayed. At any point, you (or any system user, if you have a multi-user setup) may change your default language by simply selecting an option from the language dropdown. The system will remember each user’s language setting for the next time he or she logs in.

If you purchase our Advanced or Professional packages, your clients will also have an interface where they can log in and update their personal information, photos, etc. This client area will have the exact same language selection options.

Imagine this scenario: say you are an English-speaking matchmaker trying to match two of your bilingual clients together. The man filled out his profile in Spanish, while the woman filled out hers in English. You need the ability to look at both of your clients’ profiles in the same language. This is no problem for the Lé Connex System.

In Lé Connex, each client profile can be “flagged” as a specific language. In the example above, you would set the language to Spanish for the man and to English for the woman. The system will always display the “option-oriented” question answers in whatever language the logged-in system user has selected. However, you need a way to translate the man’s “freetext” answers into English. Our system will translate these answers for you on-the-fly, using the Microsoft Translator engine.

If you are intrigued by our multilingual offerings and would like to learn more about the Lé Connex system, you may view our complete list of features here.

more Online Dating Systems Fail to Protect Their Members

In the world of online dating systems, keeping clients safe and protected seems to be secondary to signing up new users and getting members to pay their monthly fees. Over the past few years, numerous horror stories have cropped up about popular online dating services telling of profiles that are outright lies.

In the world of online dating systems, keeping clients safe and protected seems to be secondary to signing up new users and getting members to pay their monthly fees. Over the past few years, numerous horror stories have cropped up about popular online dating services telling of profiles that are outright lies, which mislead users and result in stalking or even  in criminal acts.

Lawsuits have repeatedly been filed against these services, but the courts have continually found that they are not responsible for vetting their members in any way, so users are the epitome of “buyer beware.” With stories like these, it makes one wonder how the industry, in its current form, can continue to exist.  In this “buyer beware” marketplace, where does someone go if they are looking to find a decent, responsible, and respectable person to date?

The answer is an old one, but a tried-and-true method— a matchmaker. Matchmakers can serve as a mediator for possible matches, acting as a buffer between the two potential mates. Most matchmaking services have some one-on-one interaction between the matchmaker and the clients, allowing for clients to have a certain assurance that the matches being presented are really who they appear to be. A matchmaker can also provide more insight on matches for their clients, being able to convey the more subtle aspects of a potential match beyond the minimal “What are your favorite movies and books?”

Perhaps the most notable and useful aspect of matchmakers is that their personal touch places the responsibility of properly vetting potential matches on the matchmaker rather than the client. Some of these matchmakers, who use certain systems like LeConnex  by CLS, offer comprehensive criminal background check services, giving the client assurance that they are not being set up with a person who tried to kill their former girlfriend.

Matchmaking services that utilize systems like LeConnex  not only afford a client with all the interfacing and control that most online daters are looking for, but also the safety and comfort of knowing that people are truthfully presented. When it comes to finding a life partner, this cannot be important enough.
