Why should I pay for Tilde MT when I can use freely available options such as Google and DeepL?
The main reasons why customers should consider paying for TildeMT is quality, security and flexible deployment options. General, freely available translation engines are usually trained with large amounts of data from various domains, which results in translations that may not be suited for your specific needs (language and subject area, terms, etc.). Publicly available systems don't guarantee security measures to protect your intellectual data. By using free online translation services you allow the Translation Engine to collect your data (data collection policy remains in the fine print of most free MT providers). Translating e-mails, project proposals, legal contracts and company sensitive documents leads to the potential risk of intellectual property and proprietary data leakage. Tilde MT solutions also provide a variety of integration opportunities and our solutions are customised to fit your needs. MT can be integrated in client portals, e-mails, e-commerce, translation software and websites, etc.
What if I don't have enough data for a custom engine?
In the event that you don't have enough translation memory data to create a customised engine, Tilde can help by providing additional data from our Tilde Data Library.
