SDL Secure Translation Supply Chain Available for Regulated Businesses

Addresses Compliance and Security Throughout Global Translation Supply Chains



SDL (LSE:SDL) today announced the availability of SDL Secure Translation Supply Chain, a secure vendor-agnostic managed solution offering full data custody across the translation supply chain. Designed for regulated businesses (ISO 27001), it provides complete visibility, control and compliance across global translation supply chains, reducing exposure to data breaches. 

Companies facing industry regulations – including next year’s GDPR – need to identify, control and protect the storage of sensitive customer information. One document alone can involve up to 150 individuals in the translation supply chain. Multiply this by thousands of documents and it becomes difficult – and costly – to comply with data regulations. 

SDL Secure Translation Supply Chain solves this issue, giving companies total jurisdictional control of data within a secure hosted environment that regulates every step in the translation supply chain. From a document’s creation, translation, through the review cycle to publishing, every step is securely orchestrated through SDL’s workflows, providing traceability across the document’s journey. 

“Companies face some tough regulatory challenges. The financial industry, among many, needs to demonstrate compliance and complete control of all content and information across their global translation process,” said Katie Rigby-Brown, VP of Global Financial Solutions, SDL. “SDL Secure Translation Supply Chain tackles these very issues, removing one of the many compliance burdens facing regulated companies.” 

Two of Europe’s largest financial institutions, and among the globe’s top five life sciences firms, have already deployed SDL Secure Translation Supply Chain, applying the solution’s translation memories, terminology databases, and processes to automate every translation step.
