SDL Introduces Subscription-based Machine Translation

sdl-logoSDL introduced subscription-based access to customized Machine Translation via SDL Language Cloud. The cloud-based Machine Translation service is designed to work with SDL’s Trados Studio 2014, the industry leading translation software. As a critical component of the SDL Customer Experience Cloud, the release of the Machine Translation service follows the launch of SDL Language Cloud in June, building upon three decades of innovation in language technology.

There is an increasing amount of data being created in a growing number of languages, making the need for Machine Translation greater than ever. According to research from Common Sense Advisory, more than 90 percent of non-native English speakers rely on machine software to translate websites they visit. However, translators continue to lack the ability to easily customize this content to specific audiences.

“As an SDL Trados Studio user since 2006, I have experienced continued improvements to this product throughout the years,” said Janusz Madejski, translator. “With the new Machine Translation capabilities offered via SDL Language Cloud, I have witnessed an immediate increase of translation efficiency from the moment this add-in was installed. All internet searches for relevant terms are now at my fingertips without any additional effort or time.”

This latest addition to SDL Language Cloud answers the industry demand and provides a solution offering organizations access to high-quality, pre-trained and industry-specific Machine Translation engines. The combination of dedicated focus and advanced training delivers superior results that requires less post-translation editing and therefore can improve productivity by up to 50 percent.
