SDL (LSE: SDL), the leading provider of Global Information Management solutions, today announced a 38% increase over the last 12 months in upgrades of Trados Studio . Since January, SDL has also enabled over 23, 000 new translators to connect from SDL Trados Studio to the SDL BeGlobal Community, SDL’s cloud platform for secure machine translation.

Through this new integration, translators are now able to leverage secure cloud based automated translations to help increase productivity in the translation process and develop new post-editing business opportunities.

“For the last decade, our product strategy has focused on optimizing the translation process for hundreds of thousands of translation buyers and professional translators. With this new tight integration between our translation productivity tools and our secure, cloud-based machine translation, we have now opened up our technology to millions of additional multi-language speakers who want to work as content post-editors,” said Keith Laska, CEO of SDL’s Language Technologies division. “The rapid adoption we have seen this year is testament to the fact that we are synchronized with supporting our customers while opening up new avenues of growth for the company in a rapidly emerging area – secure machine translation.”

In addition to creating new opportunities for post-editing via SDL BeGlobal Community, the latest release of SDL Trados Studio is also part of a unique solution designed for the regulated industries to accelerate the translation of regulated documentation through advanced tracked changes capabilities in a typical Microsoft® Word-based translation process. Tighter integrations within the SDL product family such as SDL WorldServer, SDL BeGlobal and earlier versions of SDL Trados Studio also further streamline the translation process to drive adoption of complete solutions.
