2nd October, 2020: KantanMT and Wordbee are pleased to announce the launch of a new connector which will allow Wordbee users to access Neural Machine Translation (NMT) from the KantanMT platform directly into their Wordbee workflow. This new integration will enable increased project management efficiencies, faster translations and overall cost reductions.
“The team at KantanMT is constantly looking at ways to improve efficiencies for localisation teams. We see this as imperative for the sector,” says Tony O’Dowd, Founder and Chief Architect at KantanMT. “One way we do this is by working with leading industry partners, like Wordbee to develop integrations so that NMT can be embedded seamlessly into established workflows. Wordbee is a key player in many of the same industry segments as KantanMT and so it was a no brainer to ensure this connector went live as soon as possible.“
Demands for high speed, lower cost translations continue to rise, while expectations around translation quality remain consistent. To meet those demands, it’s vital to improve access to Machine Translation (MT) – to do this, MT platforms must meet users where their workflow sits, in their tools. Wordbee has created an innovative environment which allows users to automate tasks, collaborate and manage workflows while integrating with other technologies to create a connected environment to maximise efficiencies and provide a superior user experience.
The KantanMT Platform enables users to create customised Machine Translation engines using translation memories (TMX), terminology files(TBX) and/or training sets and template engines. Users can also avail of KantanFleet which is designed for clients with limited or no training data who need to start Machine Translation projects immediately. With access to powerful Machine Translation engines, Wordbee users have a win-win – a leading Project Management and CAT Tool, and Machine Translation engines that are improving daily, as Wordbee Translation Memories power Machine Learning to improve the coherence and fluency of Machine Translation engines.
“Adding KantanMT to the list of machine translation providers in Wordbee’s Translation Management System is of great benefit to our customers,” comments Bart Hendrickx, Product and Services Director at Wordbee. “It allows for translating higher volumes of data while saving time and money at the same time. KantanMT is a powerful Neural Machine Translation solution, hence we are excited to announce this integration and that it can now be added to any localisation workflow within Wordbee.”
