SDL Introduces Latest Machine Translation Innovation with Adaptable Neural Language Pairs (Graphic: Business Wire)
Today global companies apply neural machine translation in a variety of
ways, from translating large volumes of business-critical and sensitive
content, to eDiscovery and content intelligence. Building specific
machine translation models and workflows – across different departments
and industries – often requires teams of data scientists, linguistic
experts, external consultancy and support. In these situations,
customers are required to share their confidential data, potentially
violating regulatory constraints and/or introducing risk.
The new Adaptable Language Pairs, which can be trained for any scenario,
are being introduced as part of the upcoming SDL Enterprise Translation
Server (ETS) 8.4 release. As part of the SDL Machine Translation
solution, these can be securely deployed on-premise, private-cloud, or
in a hybrid model to support any enterprise translation workflows. With
this flexibility, organizations can meet the scale of multilingual
content required in the Intelligent Translation Era.
“Global brands now operate in content-intensive environments.
Translating and making sense of information is no easy task. It requires
smart technology that users can control without compromising data
security,” said Jim Saunders, Chief Product Officer, at SDL. “We are
changing the playing field with these latest innovations in neural
machine translation, helping brands prepare for the Intelligent
Translation Era where content and information can significantly improve
time to market, customer satisfaction and accurate global insight.”
Offering a continuous learning environment, users can easily adapt the
system to their own content requirements by training and re-training on
their own schedule using their own content. These latest additions to
SDL Machine Translation help redefine an organization’s focus from going
global to a select few markets, to going omnimarket – the ability to
translate all content for every market, language, and device.
SDL Linguistic AI is a technology that powers SDL’s content management
and language solutions, and helps to process, understand and generate
content, by finding patterns and connections within content across
