Select Translation Service (STS)
At the heart of Linguistic Systems’ industry-leading service is our Select Translation Service (STS) technology platform. STS is a proprietary software solution that is our core platform and the starting point for all projects involving machine translation.
Data-Secure & Data Driven
Before we translate a word, we secure your data. Our information security process is ISO 27001 certified, so you can be assured that your confidential data is safe with us.
Then your project is run against any of your relevant existing translation assets (your library) to identify previously translated work. This eliminates duplication and reduces costs.
Ease of Access
STS is also a self-serve tool if you prefer to optimize the translation ordering process to save time and fit the cost to your particular needs. There are 3 ways for you to access STS:
- LSI Translation Plug-in (LTP) for Relativity is a software plugin we created to provide users of kCura’s Relativity with seamless access to Linguistic Systems for ordering translations. This includes viewing results alongside the original text without the need to export or import documents to Relativity. You can see more info on the LSI Translation Plug-in for Relativity, here.
- WebGate provides online access to all 6 levels using any popular Internet browser.
- Linguistic Systems also offers a rich API that developers can use to integrate their application with STS.
