The above are providers of online machine translation systems. I am currently
preparing a project with two companies (one localization, one  mt provider) who
want the implement the same functionality as a standard means.

So these are then three online MT system, and one is cooperating with a
localization provider. But a standardized mechanism can be relevant for many
other "participants" on the web, and also in the "deep Web": CMS providers who
produce the necessary information in their templates, which is then processed
in MT systems or localization chains; and in larger companies  with often quite
complex content delivery chains (see what Helena mentioned), which result on
surface web html pages.

It is not important to use the ITS translate mechanism. But it is important to
have a mechanism that can be separated from others, and that can be easily
shared among all these groups.

And I would call these also content providers.
