Groundbreaking Linguistic AI solution ‘Evolve’ by RWS transforms global translation practices

Following a successful beta program involving Dell and other industry leaders, RWS announces Evolve’s availability—a groundbreaking linguistic AI solution offering significant efficiency gains for global enterprises with substantial translation demands. Evolve represents a major leap forward for the translation industry, integrating human and artificial intelligence, revolutionizing translation processes, and reducing the time needed to achieve high-quality results.

During the beta program, RWS enhanced Evolve using client feedback and by integrating its translation management system into the solution. RWS’s language services, including 1,750+ in-house language specialists and domain experts, are deployed as part of the solution, which continually learns and self-improves, ensuring optimal translation outcomes.

“Evolve is the industry-first solution embodying Genuine Intelligence, a fusion of human and artificial intelligence that helps global enterprises stay ahead of overwhelming content challenges,” said Thomas Labarthe, President of Language & Content Technology at RWS.

Evolve combines RWS’s language services with its translation management system (Trados Enterprise) and its neural machine translation technology (Language Weaver) alongside language specialist-trained quality estimation and a finely tuned private large language model. This powerful combination helps global companies achieve near-instant, human-like translation quality, allowing RWS’s language specialists to focus their unique skills and cultural expertise on the content that requires their attention.

“Dell has always focused on continuous innovation, which is why we were excited to participate in the Evolve beta program,” commented Wayne Bourland, Director of Translation at Dell. “RWS has created a groundbreaking linguistic AI solution that addresses the ever-growing translation challenges presented by large content volumes, enabling us to engage international audiences faster.”

The Evolve linguistic AI solution is currently available in several language pairs—with more to come in 2024. Check if you qualify to benefit from Evolve.
