Case Study

CLAAS Challenges

CLAAS is a multinational company that was seeking to offer customer service in their customers’ languages and ensure a consistently excellent experience at every point of contact.​

In order to provide the best service to their customers located across the globe, CLAAS needed to find the right solution to localize efficiently its communication and documentation in numerous languages all the while guaranteeing data privacy.

Multilingual communication and collaboration with software interface adaptation


SYSTRAN translate Server 

CLAAS integrated SYSTRAN machine translation into the company’s IT system and it will soon be available via its new intranet portal. ​

SYSTRAN’s solution has been customized as per CLAAS’ terminology in order to generate accurate and quality translations in real time without the risk of leaking confidential information.​


A global company with a focus on local markets​

In the past 15 years, CLAAS has expanded significantly through acquisitions and the growth of their product range. Their global presence across five continents necessitated the localization of documentation and after-sales service.

Given their diverse operations, effective communication in multiple languages is crucial for delivering excellent customer service. Employees are expected to work in foreign languages, including Chinese, English, German, French, and Russian, for internal collaboration, content creation, and after-sales support.

To meet these language demands, employees frequently used free translation software, which raised concerns about translation quality and data security.
