LONDON, December 7, 2021 — XTM International (“XTM”), a leading provider of translation management software to global blue-chip clients, today announced the release of a joint feature with SAP SE (“SAP”).

Two essential components of the language technology stack are a next generation translation management system and a cutting edge machine translation solution.

SAP Translation Hub, the translation solution provided by SAP, now integrates its machine translation API with XTM Cloud to deliver fast, high quality translations by leveraging the power of XTM Cloud customizable workflows and creating a winning MT solution for commercial and technical projects.

SAP Translation Hub can be selected as a machine translation provider in XTM Cloud at system level, customer level and project or template level. This granularity empowers XTM Cloud project managers with the highest level of flexibility when combining the benefits of machine translation with relevant linguistic assets and project settings. At the same time, linguists can benefit from industry-focused, enterprise-related MT suggestions in more than 90 language pairs.

SAP Translation Hub and XTM Cloud provide highly automated workflows that leverage superior machine translation, aligned with a secure, private post-editing environment. Together, XTM and SAP automate what can and should be automated, and give people time and freedom to do the work that only people can do.

XTM founder and CEO Bob Willans applauds the collaboration.
“We continuously seek partnerships that enhance the user experience, and this integration with SAP Translation hub offers users a direct line to the benefits of machine translation, delivering the scalability that ambitious enterprise clients love.”

Dr. Thomas Wienold, Head of Language Experience Lab at SAP, concurs
“As we approach our 50th anniversary in 2022, we’re excited to find new ways of adding value for SAP users. Partnership with XTM International links two global leaders and delivers automation with a purpose.”

For translation technology users the message is clear. Get ready to start your engine. It will take you precisely where you want to go.
