Wakefield, MA and Maidenhead, UK – Feb. 24, 2016 – SDL today announced significant enhancements to two of its translation management system applications, SDL WorldServer and SDL TMS. Responding to industry demands for faster and more efficient translation, these new versions further improve productivity of a centralized, flexible and automated enterprise translation program. 

Ben Sargent, analyst at Common Sense Advisory, added, “SDL has attracted many high-volume customers who trust SDL TMS and SDL WorldServer to reliably process hundreds of millions of words each year. SDL WorldServer and SDL TMS each have more enterprise deployments today than any other translation management system in the industry.” 

The latest releases of SDL WorldServer and SDL TMS include the following enhancements: 

  • Improved productivity with new user experience (UX) – Project administrators now have the ability to manage major translation projects at both the project group and task level, reducing administration efforts and time, while also improving productivity for submitting, reviewing and processing translation requests. 
  • Ease of use with new common SDL User Interfaces (UI) – Both SDL WorldServer and SDL TMS adopt common SDL UI for instant familiarity across the entire translation ecosystem and improved user performance. 
  • Improved integration across SDL products and third-party systems with new REST-based API – The latest version of SDL WorldServer and SDL TMS implement a new REST-based API architecture and Filter updates to tighten the integration with many other products including SDL Trados Studio, the leading translator productivity tool. 

“Growing demand for foreign language content is pressuring organizations to greatly improve their translation productivity,” said Dominic Kinnon, President, Global Language Solutions at SDL. “Translation experts are being asked to localize more types and higher quantities of content in shorter periods of time with improved quality than ever before. With our latest enhancements to SDL WorldServer and SDL TMS, we continue to innovate in language technology, helping organizations expand to global markets so they can drive revenue and meet customers’ expectations, regardless of language.”
