SDL Launches Industry Specific Language Cloud Platforms to Accelerate Translation and Deliver Seamless Global Customer Experience

SDL introduced industry specific language platforms to help organizations rapidly and efficiently address the needs of their global customers within the industries they operate. The language platforms, a key extension to the Language pillar of SDL’s Customer Experience Cloud (CXC), can be integrated to provide seamless delivery of global customer experiences. The eight industries include Travel and Hospitality, Finance, Life Sciences, Global Marketing, IT & Software, Manufacturing, eCommerce and Consumer Electronics. Each industry has its own unique needs and challenges when it comes to language and translation. For example, life sciences companies require high quality, technical translations as they exist in highly regulated markets where an inaccuracy could impact a patient, while travel and hospitality companies must translate billions of words of customer reviews as quickly as possible. Drawing on more than 20 years of experience helping organizations overcome translation challenges, SDL has designed these platforms specifically for the needs of each market. The SDL industry language platforms are out-of-the-box, industry specific translation solutions comprising both language technology and services which are fully customized for the requirements of each industry to ensure accurate, consistent translations across languages for a more relevant experience. Each platform integrates SDL’s existing translation technology and services and can be further customized to meet a customer’s specific requirements.

Waters Corporation Selects SDL for Enterprise-Level Content Management

SDL announced that Waters Corporation has selected SDL Knowledge Center [3] to streamline its content creation and management process, drive content reuse and promote standardization of its documentation to deliver a better customer experience. With thousands of scientists around the world relying on Waters products and services, all of which operate in highly-regulated industries, it is essential that the technical documentation being created is accurate, reliable and compliant. However, delivering high-quality, timely publications became challenging as they were using a number of different vendors to localize content in as many as 16 languages, as well as using multiple content management processes and workflows, which made it difficult for writers to identify and reuse existing content. After an extensive review of out-of-the-box solutions for creating product documentation, Waters turned to SDL Knowledge Center to organize and manage Waters technical content, so it can be easily shared, filtered and delivered to any channel.
