GDPR: Risks of personal data sent for translation

The GDPR stipulates that you must have a lawful basis for using European residents’ personal data. This requirement makes it necessary to classify personal data correctly to avoid sharing it unknowingly.

Take a look at this infographic to find out more about the hidden ways in which personal data can be sent:

  • +85% of companies don’t know if they send personal data out as part of their translation process.
  • A name or email address can easily find its way into a translated document.
  • Insurance claims and Know Your Customer content may not be anonymized before translation.
  • Some translation providers outsource translations to agencies, so you need to know how your files are handled.
