Overview

Leverage your existing infrastructure and present content to users in their native languages, at a fraction of the cost of professional translation with WebSphere® Translation Server V5.

You can integrate WebSphere Translation Server into Web pages, e-mail applications, real-time chat, and many other applications so you can dynamically translate this text real-time into multiple languages.

Based on IBM Machine Translation technology, the WebSphere Translation Server is designed for scalability on multiple platforms.

WebSphere Translation Server can run on a dedicated server, using Java™ RMI protocol to communicate with the WebSphere Application Server and WebSphere Portal Enable and Extend.

Static and CGI Web content is enabled for translation through the WebSphere Translation Server support for HTTP servers from Netscape, Sun, Apache, Microsoft™, or IBM. Integration into other applications is available through the documented API.

Enhancements for WebSphere Translation Server for Multiplatforms V5 include:

  • Improved plugin offering
    • Added WebSphere Translation Server plugins for each Web server to enable Web server to handle HTTP POST request translation
    • Enhanced WebSphere Translation Server on-demand plugins to handle HTTPS URL translation
  • Extended Web server support
    • Added WebSphere Translation Server plugins solution on IBM HTTP Server V2
    • Added WebSphere Translation Server plugins solution on Sun ONE Web server
  • Extended platforms — Added WebSphere Translation Server solution on Linux Red Hat (Intel™) platform
  • Extended platforms — Added WebSphere Translation Server solution on IBM zLinux platform
  • Additional languages
    • Brazilian Portuguese to English
    • Korean to English
  • Enhanced lexicons and translation engines on all language pairs
  • UDM has new functions like word lookup, Web page translation, and quality enhancements
  • Enhanced Java sample programs

Supported languages are listed in the Description section.

Description

The WebSphere Translation Server can run on a dedicated server, and uses the remote method invocation (RMI) protocol to communicate between the server and WebSphere Application Server.

HTML content can be translation-enabled using the sample Java code to support the Netscape Hypertext Transfer Protocol HTTP server, Apache HTTP server, the Microsoft IIS HTTP server, Sun ONE Web server, and IBM HTTP server.

Leverage your investment in the Web, e-mail, chat, and other means of communicating with your internal and external customers by translating their content into multiple languages. While machine translation is not meant to replace a professional translator, often the availability, and cost of a professional translator are not feasible or practical.

Machine translation may offer the end user only the essence of the content, but many times that would be preferable to no translation at all.

IBM has combined scalable machine translation engines with a server architecture and thin client to allow for a disbursed processing and off-loading of language translation from the HTTP server or the application server to a dedicated translation server.

The WebSphere Translation Server also includes User Dictionary Management tools that allow you to add customer-specific terms to the lexicons used by the machine translation engines.

WebSphere Translation Server for Multiplatforms V5 consists of:

  • Machine translation engines for translating text from one language into another language (such as English to Spanish)
  • Support for WebSphere Application Server and HTTP servers from Microsoft, Netscape, Sun, Apache, and IBM
  • A published API for easy integration into third-party applications
  • User Dictionary Manager tools that allow specific words to be added (for example, tuning for a specific application or adding of slang or corporate and domain-specific phrases and terms)

The WebSphere Translation Server includes:

  • One or more of the following machine translation engines (depending on what is licensed):
    • English to/from Brazilian Portuguese
    • English to/from French
    • English to/from German
    • English to/from Italian
    • English to/from Spanish
    • English to/from Japanese
    • English to/from Korean
    • English to/from Chinese (Simplified)
    • English to/from Chinese (Traditional)
  • The translation server on Solaris, AIX, Linux, and Microsoft Windows NT, Windows 2000, IBM zLinux (for single byte languages only)
  • Plug-ins for the following supported HTTP servers:
    • Apache 1.3.26, or later — supported on Microsoft Windows NT, Windows 2000, Windows XP, Sun Solaris, AIX, and Linux
    • IBM HTTP Server V1.3.26, or later — supported on Windows NT, Windows 2000, Windows XP, Sun Solaris, AIX, Linux, and IBM zLinux
    • IBM HTTP Server V2.0.42 — supported on Windows NT, Windows 2000, Windows XP, Sun Solaris, AIX, and Linux, IBM zLinux
    • Microsoft IIS 4.0/5.0 — supported on Windows NT, Windows 2000, and Windows XP only
    • Sun ONE Web Server 6.5 — supported on Windows NT, Windows 2000, Sun Solaris, AIX, and Linux
    • Netscape iPlanet Enterprise Server 4.1 — supported on Windows NT, Windows 2000, Windows XP, Sun Solaris, AIX, and Linux
    • WebSphere Application Server V4.0/5.0 — supported on Windows NT, Windows 2000, Windows XP, Sun Solaris, AIX, Linux, and IBM zLinux

Note: Translated text is done solely by the computer software translation program with no human intervention. The translation from one language to another is a complex process and the translated, unreviewed text may contain some defects and errors (collectively referred to as "nonconformities"). The unreviewed translated text is provided "as is" and "with all faults and nonconformities." The customer assumes all risks and liabilities in using the translated unreviewed text.

Technical information

Hardware requirements

WebSphere® Translation Server for Multiplatforms minimum requirements:

The WebSphere Translation Server consists of four parts that can be run on the same hardware platform (if run on Microsoft™ Windows NT™, Windows™ 2000, or Windows XP system) or on different hardware platforms. These four parts consist of:
