The right solution for your texts?
You have specific expectations when it comes to the quality of your texts. Occasionally, you may have a text that needs to be translated quickly and cost-effectively, and that doesn’t need to be of the same high quality as a text translated by a professional translator. In such cases, a machine translation might be the right solution for you. There is currently a vast range of different professional systems for machine translation.
Different systems and what they offer
Machine translation is not the right option for most texts and most clients. However, if you think this service could be of interest to you, we will be happy to advise you. We can recommend the most suitable system based on what you need from your translation or, for example, how important your company’s terminology is.
Openly available systems
The latest openly available systems that are free to use or can be acquired as a private company version all work using neural networks and are capable of delivering acceptable results.
Openly available systems such as DeepL Pro cannot be trained using your company’s terminology. Therefore, if you have texts for which adherence to your corporate language and terminology isn’t important, these systems may be the right solution. After receiving your consent, we use a plug-in to translate using the machine translation platform of your choice.
The company versions of these systems also offer good levels of data protection, as any data you feed into the system is not accessible or visible to third parties. However, it is important to note that any data translated using DeepL Pro is processed in Germany. If you have any texts containing highly sensitive information that, for example, cannot leave Switzerland, we recommend that you have them translated by a human translator. Alternatively, if you want texts containing sensitive data to be machine translated, we recommend using your own system, which will give you (or us) control over server location and data security. Read on to find out more.
Depending on your requirements, we use DeepL Pro (or your preferred system) independently or in conjunction with your translation memory. More about this below.
