Translated Named a Leader in IDC MarketScape for Machine Translation

ROME, January 17, 2023 – Translated, the global enterprise  that pioneered AI-assisted localization services, has been recognized as a Leader in the MarketScape “Worldwide Machine Translation Software 2022 Vendor Assessment” (Doc #US48325622, December 2022) by IDC, the premier global provider of market intelligence and advisory services for information technology. The study evaluates companies in machine translation (MT) on the capabilities of executing clients’ projects and alignment with their future requirements.

The IDC MarketScape report notes, “Consider Translated's ModernMT for machine translation if you are a large, multinational corporation looking for adaptable multidomain support that can be deployed either on premises or via cloud, with related support for areas such as localization and human validation.

Commenting on the news, CEO Marco Trombetti said: “The IDC MarketScape’s recognition follows the mentions Translated recently received from Gartner and Intento for AI-powered translation services and machine translation quality. We are proud of leading advances in the technology that is redefining the entire localization industry.”

Continuous innovation and a strong multidomain model are the strengths of Translated’s leadership, according to the IDC MarketScape. The IDC MarketScape highlighted  Translated’s role in developing an open-source technology called ModernMT over the course of two EU-funded research projects that started in 2010. Document-level translation and real-time contextual adaptivity are considered its most relevant features. The IDC MarketScape also noted: “Customers praised the accuracy of ModernMT, particularly its ability to automatically adapt to a wide range of use cases without the need for additional training.”

ModernMT is an adaptive, patent-awarded MT engine that supports more than 2,100 language combinations and is available for both real-time and batch translation. It is often paired  with Translated’s global network of 300,000 professional linguists to validate and customize complex/high-value content and provide a wide range of services that can assist with translation at scale.
