New innovation in translation memory matching to accelerate time-to-market & drive down costs

Maidenhead, UK -- SDL International, the leading provider of Global Information Management (GIM) solutions, today announced the availability of SDL PerfectMatch technology, fully integrated within SDL Trados Synergy 2006. SDL PerfectMatch technology accelerates the delivery of global content by removing the need for lengthy human review times within the translation supply chain.

"With the release of SDL Trados Synergy 2006, SDL has revolutionized the concept of Translation Memory matching, and has innovated around the 'perfect match' for translation memory systems" says Keith Mills, President, SDL Technology. "SDL PerfectMatch technology completely eliminates the requirement for in-context 100% match review and is a major breakthrough that will help corporations around the world to manage the massively growing volumes of information required to compete on the global stage."

Define once, match multiple times -- perfectly
The goal of all Corporations is to define a message once and enforce consistency of that message across global markets in local languages. To achieve this takes significant manual checking of how phrases are used and matched within Corporate literature. SDL PerfectMatch technology cuts time from the human verification process by automating in-context translation management.

"Historically, 100% matches could be argued to always require human review - a source sentence could be translated in more than one way, depending on the context of the phrase" explained Keith Mills. "With SDL PerfectMatch technology, corporations no longer have to spend hundreds of thousands of dollars paying for the review of 100% matches. Language Service Providers can avoid countless hours unneccesarily reviewing 100% matches. SDL PerfectMatch technology distinguishes between in-context and out-of-context 100% sentence matches, guaranteeing a perfect match with the previously translated source. This will accelerate the time to deliver global content and will help companies to be more agile and competitive".
