SDL Language Cloud - Translation for documents

Translation for documents in Microsoft Office

This add-in works in Microsoft Word and provides instant translation of text and documents using machine translation technology developed by SDL and hosted on SDL Language Cloud. Now you can carry out translations directly from the tools that you use every day.

✔ Support for formatted text

All font styling is preserved in the translation so you don’t have to re-format the text.

✔ Terminology recognition

Use your own dictionaries to customize the machine translation output with your personal terms and brand names.

✔ Industry-specific machine translation

SDL has developed a number of industry-specific engines which provide higher quality output when translating text in those domains. Examples include automotive, life science, travel, consumer electronics and information technology.

✔ Ease of use

Simply enter the source and target languages and click the button to translate the text.

✔ Extended language support

SDL Language Cloud offers support for the most popular languages and has over 100 different engines that you can use.
