SDL Brings Neural MT to its Secure Enterprise Translation Server

Jun 13, 2017

SDL announced that its Neural Machine Translation (NMT) technology is now part of SDL Enterprise Translation Server 7.4, a secure Machine Translation (MT) platform for regulated industries. Deployed on premise or in a private cloud environment, SDL ETS is designed for companies facing tight regulations, and offers total control of MT-related data. Data never leaves the corporate network, and only individuals with the right access rights can access content.

SDL ETS can be customized for more than 18 industries, ranging from life sciences and financial services through to retail, engineering, and legal. It can also be trained to learn specific corporate terminology, style, and branding guidelines. SDL’s Neural MT provides a powerful framework to overcome some of the complex challenges facing machine translation. It uses a deep learning architecture that learns the meaning of the text, rather than associated words in a sentence. 

SDL’s MT technology is already helping Microsoft Office users automatically translate text from within Word and PowerPoint through a simple, easy-to-use add-in. A selection of APIs and integrations for SDL’s MT technology are also on offer for translation agencies (LSPs), enterprises and government organizations. The technology can be easily included in complex, global content workflows, and third-party applications using SDL’s out-of-the-box integrations.
