BEST PRACTICES SERIES

SDL 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 release of the Machine Translation service follows the launch of SDL Language Cloud in June, building upon three decades of innovation in language technology.

According to research from Common Sense Advisory, more than 90% 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. This latest addition to SDL Language Cloud aims to answer the industry demand and provides a solution offering organizations access to high-quality, pre-trained and industry-specific Machine Translation engines.

Accessed via SDL Trados Studio 2014, the SDL Language Cloud Machine Translation service allows users to access a number of smart, industry-specific Machine Translation engines, including Automotive, Consumer Electronics, Travel, IT and Life Sciences; personalize machine translation output with custom terms and brands names; access trained industry engines for up to 40% increased output, accelerating translation productivity; gain greater visibility and control over machine translation usage through comprehensive analytics.
