Translations.com’s GlobalLink OneLink Website Translation Technology Sets Standard for Online Data Security

Translations.com, the world’s largest privately held provider of language services and translation-related technologies, today announced that its GlobalLink OneLink website translation technology is officially listed on the VISA Global Registry of Service Providers and MasterCard PCI Compliant Service Providers lists for the third consecutive year.

Translations.com first achieved PCI DSS compliance for GlobalLink OneLink in November 2011, making it the world’s first cloud-based solution for website translation to achieve that milestone. Three years later, Translations.com’s GlobalLink OneLink solution remains the only website translation software solution to be officially recognized by both VISA and MasterCard as having met all of the stringent requirements to be listed as a PCI DSS compliant service provider.

“Data security is priority number one for organizations that transact business online,” noted Phil Shawe, co-CEO of Translations.com. “E-commerce partner organizations like ours are entrusted the same confidential data that merchants require to process a transaction. Having secure data centers simply isn’t enough, which is why we’re proud to have achieved PCI DSS compliance as a Level 1 Service Provider by inviting PCI Qualified Security Assessors to assess every element involving data security, including network infrastructure, software development methodology, application source code, change control policies, and security access policies.”

“The security of the entire operation, including security in application development processes and ongoing operations, is vital to passing a PCI DSS Assessment,” according to security expert Jacob Ansari from 403 Labs. “Someone claiming PCI DSS compliance just because their systems reside in a PCI DSS-compliant data center or environment simply isn't a valid statement, because it does not necessarily address the application software, infrastructure or their own internal policies and procedures for managing the security of their environment.”

Clients who choose GlobalLink OneLink for their website translation requirements can enjoy the added peace of mind of knowing they have the industry’s most secure website translation solution, which covers their end users and consumers who entrust their confidential information, including credit card and personal data, to translated websites managed by the GlobalLink OneLink solution.

“We’re fortunate to work with some of the world’s largest and most well-known brands,” added Mr. Shawe, “so anything less than meeting the most demanding security requirements around customer data is not an option. We take every available step to maintain the integrity of their customer data, regardless of the target language or market.”

First launched in 2008, Translations.com GlobalLink OneLink solution powers more than 1,500 live sites for more than 350 clients, including American Eagle, Gap, Hilton, PUMA, Starbucks, The United States Postal Services, and Walt Disney Parks & Resorts.
