The challenge

Until recently, Nestlé was all about human translation: working with agencies, internal translators or employees who assisted with translation needs in their native language. Translation in this large company was fully decentralized: each market or brand had its own process which resulted in high costs and long delivery time.

The need for machine translation came from several departments at the company in the objective to optimize these internal processes and reduce costs.
