Lionbridge Makes GeoFluent Available on Microsoft Azure

Lionbridge Technologies has made its GeoFluent real-time translation solution available on the Microsoft Azure cloud platform to support global clients.

The availability of Azure from 30 regions across the globe allows Lionbridge to support GeoFluent customer data residency requirements and preferences for data storage. Lionbridge clients will now be able to use GeoFluent delivered from Azure regions throughout Europe, to allow for real-time translation services across borders and in compliance with European personal data transfer requirements. Lionbridge will replicate this model to support GeoFluent customers in other parts of world, leveraging regional data centers to support appropriate data privacy requirements.

"Lionbridge's patented advances have made real-time translation a viable alternative to hiring bilingual agents," said Tom Tseki, vice president and general manager of GeoFluent at Lionbridge, in a statement. "In addition, the move to Azure ensures that we are able to optimize GeoFluent to meet the security and privacy requirements of each client in each region."

"We're pleased to see Lionbridge deliver GeoFluent on Microsoft Azure as a key component to meet local compliance requirements," said Chris Niehaus, senior director of national cloud programs at Microsoft, in a statement. "The global scale and agility of Azure, combined with Lionbridge's industry expertise, will help to enhance the overall experience for our mutual customers."
