SDL MultiTrans® : Managed vs. Full Control

A Versatile Solution

SDL MultiTrans is a versatile solution that benefits the enterprise as well as localization teams. We have packaged our solution to meet different market needs. We currently offer the same solution in two packages: SDL MultiTrans Managed and SDL MultiTrans Full.

SDL MultiTrans: Managed

A flexible, secure, and centralized platform to handle your localization efforts. For companies with no in-house translation teams, SDL MultiTrans Managed means there’s nothing to install, configure or manage. SDL manages all these tasks so that your translation management system (TMS) allows localization managers, marketing departments, documentation centers or any content managing business unit to easily control the processing of text, video, and speech.

SDL MultiTrans Managed connects the power of SDL to SDL MultiTrans, servicing your company with a complete localization team without the need for you to employ these resources in-house. SDL MultiTrans Managed includes an easy-to-use, customizable Customer Portal to request a new project.

From the Customer Portal, you can:

  • Submit projects
  • Track project status
  • View, approve and reject quotes
  • Perform customer review tasks
  • Download completed and delivered documents
  • Rate and refuse deliveries
  • Generate and view customized reports
  • View, download and send invoices
  • Carry out a global, historical search
  • Have visibility over current and past projects
  • Benefit from Single Sign-On

Centralize all your projects in one dashboard


View organization-wide projects, business unit projects or your own projects depending on access rights.


Retrieve invoices from SDL MultiTrans in a matter of clicks. Select a time period and download them.


Reports can be exported in CSV, HTML and PDF anytime.

Access SDL MultiTrans Managed anytime, anywhere

SDL MultiTrans Managed provides you with the quickest access and most UX-friendly interface possible to simplify your decisions, and master the complex process of translation management in a few clicks.
