SDL Language Cloud - Translation for e-mails

Translation for e-mails in Microsoft Office

This add-in works in Microsoft Outlook and provides instant translation of text and e-mails 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.
