New machine translation capabilities further enhance global customer experience management

Maidenhead, U.K., February 11, 2013, - SDL (LSE: SDL) today announced a series of new machine translation (MT)
capabilities in its Language Platform that will help businesses translate the avalanche of new content that has
infiltrated the enterprise. With a more scalable and cost-effective way to translate growing amounts of customer-
facing content – whether on e-commerce sites, social media or help forums – businesses will be able to deliver
informative, relevant and consistent customer experiences, helping increase sales and drive brand loyalty.

Big Data has created unprecedented challenges across the enterprise. And the volume, variety and velocity of
information, multiplied by the number of languages required for a global business, have transformed Big Data
challenges into Big Language challenges. Machine translation (MT) is the only technology that is scalable and cost-
effective enough to handle this Big Language challenge, which is why SDL chose to integrate the capability across
its existing Language Platform. The enhanced platform offers MT integration with translation workflow, as well as a
new self-training capability for translation teams to improve MT quality and dramatically improve translator
productivity.

With SDL’s new Language Platform capabilities, enterprises and language service providers will be able to easily
and securely train the SDL BeGlobal® machine translation software with SDL BeGlobal Trainer to deliver higher-
quality automated translations and expand the types of content that can be translated. This includes real-time
content such as chat, email and social media. Additionally, MT is now seamlessly integrated across the entire set of
language technologies in the platform – including SDL WorldServer®,SDL TMS®, SDL GroupShare™ and SDL Trados
Studio® - leveraging solid, well-documented APIs.

From real-time free translation options to high-quality professional translations, small businesses and large
enterprises alike will be able to create global competitive advantage through a holistic, end-to-end platform of SDL
translation solutions.

“Our mission is to eliminate barriers to global communication by helping solve Big Language challenges within
every industry,” said Keith Laska, CEO of the SDL Language Technologies division. “By delivering our market-leading
technologies via a powerful, integrated enterprise platform, and putting MT in the hands of users, we hope to
provide the right technology and tools for every global communication need across the organization.”
