GDPR Puts Your Translation Supply Chain at Risk. Are You Ready to Respond?

The EU GDPR is the new European framework for data protection, designed to harmonize data privacy laws across Europe and give greater protection and rights to individuals. 

This new regulation requires organizations to be held to greater accountability for how they handle personal data. And because it applies to any organization that collects, manages and processes personal information and monitors the behavior of European citizens regardless of their location, it applies to organizations around the globe. 

To date, much focus has been placed on the impact this will have on the role of marketers. However, with the vast amount of data sent out to third parties for translation, the translation process may put many firms at risk of non-compliance - and potential fines of 4% of annual turnover. 

In this webinar recording, Tim Walters of Digital Clarity Group and SDL’s Katie Rigby-Brown will share practical insights for organizations that suspect or know that they send personal information out as part of the translation process. 

What you will learn: 

  • Key factors you need to know about the EU data protection regulation changes. 
  • Why language can pose a hidden organizational risk. 
  • Insights into how other organizations are securing their translation supply chain. 
  • Questions you need to ask your Language Service Providers to ensure their compliance standards are not exposing you to risk.
