Business/Technology Editors


Siecor will offer instant translations of e-mail and instant

messaging to every employee worldwide to improve the level of

cross-language communication and collaboration

Transparent Language, a leading developer of language-learning and translation technology for the Internet, consumer and corporate markets, today announced the sale of the Enterprise Translation Server(TM) to Siecor, soon to be known as Corning Cable Systems, to enable their 14,000+ employees worldwide to instantly translate Lotus Notes(R) e-mail and Lotus Sametime(TM) instant messaging.

Siecor, owned by Corning Incorporated, is a worldwide leader in fiber optic systems for telecommunications applications. With offices in North and South America, Europe, Asia, the Middle East and Australia, Siecor employees rely on e-mail to enable daily communications between international offices. With the integration of the Enterprise Translation Server into their Lotus communication environment, Siecor employees will have the ability to translate incoming and outgoing e-mail and instant messaging in real time, thereby improving multilingual communication and collaboration between international offices.

"With locations scattered around the globe, it was inevitable that our people would experience difficulties communicating due to language differences," stated Steve Kelly, Siecor manager information services. "With the integration of the Enterprise Translation Server into our communication environment, our people will be able to quickly and easily communicate their ideas and requirements and have them understood by their international colleagues. Utilizing the real-time translation capabilities of the Enterprise Translation Server should improve the quality of our internal communications significantly, resulting in real gains in efficiency, productivity and ultimately time to market."

"Communication and collaboration in enterprises is happening more and more across languages. Our solutions make that happen," said Michael Quinlan, founder and president of Transparent Language. "With the Enterprise Translation Server, global organizations are provided with a proven solution that is easily integrated into their current communication environment to allow companies such as Siecor to realize an immediate improvement in their multilingual communications and multilingual information access."

"In today's fast-paced international business world, using human translation exclusively is simply not possible if an organization wishes to keep pace with and manage the vast amounts of electronically generated information shared across languages and boundaries," said Kevin Cavanaugh, vice president of International Product Development at Lotus. "Lotus is unique among application vendors in giving its customers access to machine translation, and Transparent Language's Enterprise Translation Server will play a critical role in enabling cross-language communication and allowing organizations to be competitive in a truly global marketplace."

Enterprise Translation Server Integration into Lotus Notes

The Enterprise Translation Server gives Lotus Notes organizations, such as Siecor, the ability to offer instantaneous on-the-fly translations to their employees. Lotus Notes can be modified to enable requests for translations using the Enterprise Translation Server and the recently released Lotus Translation Components 2.0 (LTC), which allows any Domino application to connect directly to leading machine translation engines such as the Enterprise Translation Server. Translation requests pass through the LTC, which interfaces with the Enterprise Translation Server. The Enterprise Translation Server interprets the request, translates the appropriate text and returns the completed translation via the LTC to the originating Notes e-mail or Sametime message.

About Enterprise Translation Server

Running under WindowsNT, the Enterprise Translation Server provides instantaneous, draft-quality on-the-fly translations of Web pages, e-mail, plain text or document files while maintaining the exact formatting of the original document. Users can obtain bi-directional translations of English to and from French, German and Spanish, and unidirectional translations of English to Italian and Portuguese. The powerful dictionary editing tools included with the server allow translation administrators to easily create business-specific dictionaries that can further enhance accuracy.

Available now, the Enterprise Translation Server has been integrated into various communication environments of Fortune 1000 and Internet companies.


The starting price is $25,000, and evaluation copies of the Enterprise Translation Server are available.

About Machine Translation

Machine translation (MT) systems such as the Enterprise Translation Server are linguistically sophisticated translation technology products programmed with comprehensive dictionaries and a collection of linguistic rules that translate one language into another without relying on human translators. An MT system interprets the structure of sentences in the source language (the language the user is translating from) and generates a translation based on the rules of the target language (the language the user is translating to). The process involves breaking down complex and varying sentence structures, identifying parts of speech, resolving ambiguities, and synthesizing the information into the components and structure of the new language.
