Depending on the Services and Technologies included in your Subscription Package and the workflows agreed upon with you, this content is either uploaded by you yourselves (for example when you use InstantTranslate for machine translation), or World Translation uploads it for you (for example your translation memory and/or terminology, in order to give you access to these data).

World Translation is committed to protecting your data and your personal information. The specific details regarding data protection and privacy depend on the Services and Technologies of your Subscription Package. Please contact us for further information.

Please note that when you use InstantTranslate, you may have access to third-party machine translation systems that are not owned or managed by World Translation (see paragraph 0).
