Secure Enterprise Machine Translation

Gain control of business sensitive content

Business challenge

Data leakage and lack of information control are business critical issues that plague corporations. The employee use of a free online machine translation (MT) tools have caused massive data privacy breaches, as content exchanged with these consumer grade translation tools become public and searchable. The solution is not simply shutting down access to online MT tools without offering a secure alternative. The inability to readily obtain instant translations hurts business decision making and results in missed opportunities.
