Translation Productivity

Our computer-assisted translation technology is the best-known on the market, assisting more than 200,000 translators improve the quality and efficiency of their work through powerful and flexible translation productivity tools. SDL Trados Studio is the leading translation productivity tool on the market. When you buy SDL Trados Studio, you are investing in a CAT tool that creates valuable translation memory resources, manages terminology and integrates with the complete SDL Language Technology platform. For example, translators working in a team can use SDL Trados Studio with SDL GroupShare to collaborate on translation projects and boost the productivity in the translation process between project managers and translators.

Machine Translation

Machine translation (MT), is especially well-positioned to deal with the growing volumes of localization on the market due to its inherent scalability and economy. The SDL Language Platform includes two machine translation solutions: Machine Translation from the SDL Language Cloud to Studio 2014, and SDL BeGlobal, which automates the content translation process from one language to another (or to many others). All users can access machine translation from SDL Trados Studio, while LSPs (Linguistic Service Providers) have the option of training the system to improve the machine translation result, which increases quality for specific customers. API-based machine translation is easy to integrate into existing systems, and allows suitable translations for real-time communications, e.g. social networks, online chats, forums and blogs.
