SDL Brings Powerful Cloud-Based Neural Machine Translation to Global Brands


Santa Clara, CA-November 8, 2018 - SDL (LSE: SDL), a global leader in content creation, translation, and delivery, today announces major enhancements to its Machine Translation (MT) offering, bringing SDL's state-of-the-art Neural Machine Translation (NMT) 2.0 into a secure cloud environment. In addition, it now uses Edge-Cloud capabilities to integrate seamlessly with on-premise solutions to provide secure, flexible deployment options.


SDL's next-generation NMT 2.0 solution has been developed for enterprises who require flexibility to rapidly process high volumes of multilingual content across multiple use cases. For example, leveraging on-cloud instant translation for social media posts that need an immediate response while using the same technology on premise for internal legal documents, patent applications, eDiscovery, and other sensitive content.


Benefits of SDL's Cloud-Based Neural Machine Translation include:


·    Access to more languages and markets: Access to over 100 language pairs, including the most challenging (Russian, Chinese, and Korean).

·    Secure, instant access from anywhere: Anyone involved across the translation supply chain can securely access projects, tasks and translations from any connected device. Data remains secure and complies with local data governance regulations.

·    Easy to use: Translating a document has never been easier. Users only need to drag and drop a file or use a pre-built plugin within commonly used applications, and within seconds receive the translation in their desired language with formatting preserved.


"SDL is revolutionising the way brands understand and engage with worldwide audiences with its Neural Machine Translation technology," said Mihai Vlad, VP of Machine Learning and AI, SDL. "Our enhanced Machine Translation offering - supporting an Edge-Cloud architecture - provides scale and speed, along with robust data governance and privacy across the content supply chain, establishing a foundation for other Linguistic AI solutions."
