SDL solutions help centralise translation assets, reduce costs and improve quality

SDL (LSE: SDL) the leader in Global Information Management, today announced that EXFO Inc., a leading provider
of test and service assurance solutions for network operators and equipment manufacturers in the global
telecommunications industry, is working with SDL to more effectively and efficiently translate content across its
entire supply chain. EXFO will be able to centralize translation assets and share them in real time resulting in
translation cost, speed and quality improvements.

EXFO has approximately 1800 people in 25 countries, supporting more than 2000 telecom customers worldwide.
To meet the demands of these customers, EXFO needed to shorten global product launch cycles of their test and
service assurance solutions for global telecommunications. With R&D and Marketing teams working separately on
translations, using Language Service Providers and in-house translators, there was a need for a centralized system
to automate manual processes and allow for translation re-use so they could translate content faster and more
accurately.

To address these translation challenges, EXFO deployed Trados Studio®(a product of SDL), SDL TM Server®
and SDL MultiTerm Server™ to ensure high quality content across all languages, provide workflow and project
management control as well as a centralised translation memory and terminology databases which ensure the
quick reuse of previously translated content.

“EXFO is proud to have chosen SDL for its translation tools. SDL’s expertise and great understanding of our needs
truly made a difference in our day-to-day operations,” said Kathleen Cotter, Translation Coordinator at EXFO. “An
innovative company like ours must rely on efficient and reliable tools to provide our customers with first-class
translation, as fast as possible.”

“It is an honour to be recognised as a trusted supplier by EXFO,” said Tim McManus, Senior Vice President of
products for SDL’s Language Technologies Division. “This exciting opportunity reconfirms our ability to provide a
fantastic service to global brands and we look forward to continuing to work with EXFO.”
