Hi,
I am wondering if the BeGlobal Community sharing is open both ways...

1) If I activate it and translate
and
2) Revise the translation so it will make more sense,

Will my new TM created by this be shared by BeGlobal as well? Or will it still remain my private TM?


Thanks in advance!

Hi Christine,

When you use SDL BeGlobal, Studio will send the source segment to BeGlobal so it can be translated (obviously) and will return the suggested translation to the target column in Studio. But that's it. Studio doesn't send the target segment back at all... corrected or otherwise.

Regards

Paul

Source content discarded or stored? Oct 23, 2013

What about the source content then that is uploaded to BeGlobal in order to machine-translate it: will this content be discarded after I am done with my project, or will it be stored in the (community) cloud ... wherever that physical location may be? (where are the servers located?). Who has access to the source text?

We are concerned about the confidentiality of the texts we translate - in both the source and the target. We signed non-disclosure agreements with our clients, as did our translators with us, and I am not sure whether using BeGlobal would result in a breach of these agreements.

I am impressed as to how powerful BeGlobal is (did a few tests), but I am concerned about the above.

Please advise, thank you!
Alexandra

Source text in BeGlobal Oct 23, 2013

Hi Alexandra,

The source text is held in memory long enough to provide a translation and then it's discarded.

Regards

Paul

Hi Paul,

I do not understand much what 'memory' do you refer to. Can you explain please.

Do you mean nobody can use the source text or TM in SDL BeGlobal, and confidentiality is as a result ensured.

Thank you in advance.

Malang
