On Premises

Microsoft Translator On-Premises (On-Prem) Edition is a web services-based enterprise solution provided by Microsoft Consulting Services (MCS) that performs fast, automated, high-quality translations behind a corporate firewall. This allows customers with extremely confidential needs or without Internet connectivity to retain their data inside their own environment, as it is processed by the Microsoft Translator engine.

MCS offers an on-premises solution as a yearly subscription service that includes the design, deployment, and maintenance of the Microsoft Translator software. Maintenance includes periodic performance, functionality enhancements to the Microsoft Translator software, as well as adding new language support as it is released by Microsoft Translator. The solution is deployed on the customer’s hardware, providing that it meets the minimum system requirements.

The solution offers functionality similar to the public Internet-hosted system, including the following:

  • Translator home page for performing cut-and-paste translations of text, along with full-page, in-place translations of corporate web-enabled content.
  • Translations between any of the 60+ supported languages.
  • Web-service APIs (REST) with an online Software Development Kit (SDK), allowing customers to build their own translation-enabled business applications.
