Is online (Cloud Based) MT secure?

Asia Online recognizes that your translation memories and other linguistic assets are very valuable. These linguistic assets provide a unique competitive advantage by offering greater accuracy, efficiency and productivity. Our corporate culture and infrastructure are designed with security and privacy at their core.


Asia Online takes data security very seriously. Asia Online hosts its Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) infrastructure in ISO 27001 certified datacenters with leading cloud based infrastructure providers that service many well-known brands.


Language Studio™ infrastructure is secured in a dedicated private network infrastructure that is not shared with other companies and features world class connectivity and security. Data is stored in a secure file system with 2048 bit encryption. Each client’s data is stored independently to ensure that there is no possibility of data leakage.


A very detailed contract provides clients protection so that data provided will only be used for the purpose of building and improving the client’s custom engines. Asia Online does not share your data with any other clients and do not use your data to build other translation engines. Asia Online’s service contracts offer even greater protection than is typically found in contracts that Language Service Providers (LSPs) have with second-tier LSPs and individual translators.

Custom Engines are private to each client. Once a custom engine has been created for a client, the engine can only be accessed by the client or those authorized by the client. Clients control who can access custom engines by using the Language Studio™ web interface to manage permissions and security.
