New cloud connectivity creates opportunities for translation provider

SDL (LSE: SDL), the leading provider of Global Information Management solutions, today announced a 38%
increase over the last 12 months in upgrades of Trados Studio®. Since January, SDL has also enabled over 23, 000
new translators to connect from SDL Trados Studio to theBeGlobal® Community, SDL’s cloud platform for secure
machine translation.

Through this new integration, translators are now able to leverage secure cloud based automated translations to
help increase productivity in the translation process and develop new post-editing business opportunities.

“For the last decade, our product strategy has focused on optimizing the translation process for hundreds of
thousands of translation buyers and professional translators. With this new tight integration between our
translation productivity tools and our secure, cloud-based machine translation, we have now opened up our
technology to millions of additional multi-language speakers who want to work as content post-editors,” said Keith
Laska, CEO of SDL’s Language Technologies division. “The rapid adoption we have seen this year is testament to
the fact that we are synchronized with supporting our customers while opening up new avenues of growth for the
company in a rapidly emerging area – secure machine translation.”

In addition to creating new opportunities for post-editing via SDL BeGlobal Community, the latest release of SDL
Trados Studio is also part of a unique solution designed for the regulated industries to accelerate the translation of
regulated documentation through advanced tracked changes capabilities in a typical Microsoft® Word-based
translation process. Tighter integrations within the SDL product family such as SDL WorldServer®, SDL BeGlobal
and earlier versions of SDL Trados Studio also further streamline the translation process to drive adoption of
complete solutions.
