LONDON, December 7, 2021 – XTM International (“XTM”), a leading provider of translation management software for leading global customers, today announced the release of joint functionality with SAP SE (“SAP”).

Two essential components of the linguistic technology stack are a next-generation translation management system and a state-of-the-art machine translation solution.

SAP Translation Center, the translation solution provided by SAP, now integrates its machine translation API with Cloud XTM to deliver fast, high-quality translations by leveraging the power of XTM Cloud customizable workflows and creating a winning MT solution for business and technical projects.


SAP Translation Hub can be selected as a machine translation provider in XTM Cloud at system level, customer level, and project or model level. This granularity gives XTM Cloud project managers the highest level of flexibility when they combine the benefits of machine translation with relevant language resources and project settings. At the same time, linguists can benefit from industry-focused and business-related TA suggestions in over 90 language pairs.

SAP Translation Hub and XTM Cloud provide highly automated workflows that leverage superior machine translation, aligned with a secure and private post-editing environment. Together, XTM and SAP automate what can and should be automated, and give people the time and freedom to do the work that only people can do.

XTM Founder and CEO Bob Willans applauds the collaboration.
“We’re always looking for partnerships that improve the user experience, and this integration with the SAP Translation Hub gives users direct access to the benefits of machine translation, delivering the scalability that ambitious corporate clients love.

Dr. Thomas Wienold, Head of the Language Experience Lab at SAP, agrees
“As we approach our 50th anniversary in 2022, we are excited to find new ways to add value to SAP users. The partnership with XTM International connects two global leaders and provides automation with a purpose. “

For users of translation technologies, the message is clear. Prepare to start your engine. It will take you exactly where you want to go.
