Title (EN) METHOD AND SYSTEM FOR MULTILINGUAL ONLINE PURCHASING
(FR) PROCEDE ET SYSTEME D'ACHAT EN LIGNE MULTILINGUE
Abstract:
(EN) A system for facilitating, selecting, ordering, and purchasing of products includes a purchase-facilitating, software-implemented computer system located near a buyer, a trade-facilitating hub, and one or more vendors. Using the purchase-facilitating program, the buyer enters business and trade information and also enters information regarding the various products (available from vendors) that the buyer desires to purchase (200). After buyer-information and product-selection information have been entered in the purchase-facilitating program, that information is combined into a composite document which is sent (preferably via facsimile or internet) (228) to the trade-facilitating hub. At the hub, the composite document is converted into multiple documents which are sent to each corresponding vendor. The hub then forwards responses from the vendors to the buyer. If the buyer, hub, and vendors use different languages, then the preferred system translates all correspondence into the appropriate language for the receiving party prior to sending.
(FR) Cette invention concerne un système conçu pour faciliter la sélection, la commande et l'achat de produits, ledit système comportant un système informatique destiné à faciliter les achats et exécuté par logiciel se trouvant à proximité d'un acheteur, un dispositif central servant à faciliter les opérations commerciales, et au moins un vendeur. Au moyen du programme facilitant les achats, l'acheteur entre des informations relatives à l'opération commerciale ainsi que des informations relatives aux différents produits (disponibles auprès des vendeurs) qu'il désire acheter. (200) Une fois entrées dans le programme facilitant les achats, les informations relatives à l'acheteur et aux produits sont combinées à l'intérieur d'un document composite qui est envoyé (de préférence, par télécopie ou par Internet)(228) au dispositif central facilitant les opérations commerciales. Au niveau de ce dispositif central, le document composite est transformé en de multiples documents qui sont émis à destination de chacun des vendeurs correspondants. Le dispositif central transmet ensuite les réponses des vendeurs à l'acheteur. Si l'acheteur, le dispositif central et les vendeurs utilisent des langues différentes, alors le système traduit, dans la langue appropriée, toute correspondance à destination du correspondant récepteur avant de transmettre les informations.
