Protecting sensitive data during translation in XTM

To protect sensitive data during translation, apply custom styles in MS Word.

As a result, there is no risk of a data leak, whether the text is translated by a human translator or through machine translation.

This feature is available for all languages. 

Use anon custom style to protect sensitive data during translation in XTM
  1. Create a custom style in MS Word named anon. Use a different font color to make the styled text visible. In addition to the selected text, automatically anonymizes:

    • all numeric values

    • links

    • email addresses

  2. Apply the style to the text you want to protect.

Use onlyanon custom style to protect sensitive data during translation in XTM
  1. Create a custom style in MS Word named onlyanon‘. Use a different font color to make the styled text visible. This anonymizes the text selected with that style only.

  2. Apply the style to the text you want to protect.

 For detailed instructions on how to create styles in MS Word check the Microsoft Office website.

The text with the applied style is converted into an inline tag in XTM Workbench.

Once the localization is complete, and the target document is recomposed, the sensitive data is automatically reinserted into the text.

Note

Use hidden font to achieve similar results.
