Innovation, Compatibility, and Speed to market were three essential pillars in our purchasing objectives. From my perspective, it appears that WLT has delivered on all three thus far.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Needed more robust dictation and glossary customization pertaining to analyzing quantitative data sets of health care and insurance related marketing content. This has allowed our marketing and sales teams to aggregate, distribute, and compile mass amounts of marketing data in a fraction of time compared to alternative translators we've utilized in the past. Due to the recent verticalization of our sales force which now serve niche industries and markets, marketing is now more aligned with sales leading to agile and responsive targeting campaigns utilizing the lingua franca for each specific market. In contrast with past offerings, there was superior functionality and ease of use which led to decreased ramp up from an operational perspective. Innovation, Compatibility, and Speed to market were three essential pillars in our purchasing objectives. From my perspective it appears that WLT has delivered on all three thus far.

"Not all that different from Google Translate"

What do you like best?

Better user interface than Google Translate. Translation quality is slightly superior, but the difference is not big enough to warrant a full purchase. Periods are correctly translated to commas for large numbers.

Fewer supported languages than Google Translate and slightly slower as well.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Try free Google Translate first and compare the quality to the demo version of IBM Watson

"Reasonably good results; good for bulk"

What do you like best?

The API is pretty simple and well-documented, and quite responsive. It is definitely easy to set up, get sample responses for testing, and then scale up for bulk processing.

What do you dislike?

The results are simply not as good as other products (such as Google Translate). The results from Watson Language Translator are generally acceptable for getting the gist of what is said, which is useful for many tasks, but if you're trying to translate documents for professional purposes, they won't look as solid as they might with other tools.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Definitely try out other API's and run a quick bake-off before implementing.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I've used Watson Language Translator for personal projects, legal documents, and whitepapers.
