Data confidentiality is key in your profession

Data security

Our commitment for data security

We know how important data security and confidentiality are for professional interpreters. For this reason we decided to develop a desktop tool that saves and elaborates all your data only on your own computer. Zero compromises in security questions! Read here all the details around InterpretBank and data security.

Where is my data saved?

InterpretBank Desktop saves all your data, i.e. glossaries and preparatory documents, on your hard-disk. You can find the location where such data is saved in menu Options. The standard location for your terminology database and documents can be changed in menu Options. Nobody else can access this data.

What happens when I automatically extract terminology from my documents?

Your documents never leave your computer. The process of terminology extraction is performed on your computer.

What happens when I get automatic translation suggestions for a term?

Your term is sent - in isolation - to our server or to our partners' severs to perform the translation. We do not store this information at any time.InterpretBank will collect translation candidates while you are preparing a glossary, helping you to create better glossaries in less time. No other data leaves your computer and no tracking of your searches is done. You can even disable all online source and use only offline resources, like the included IATE.

What about uploading a glossary to access it on the WebApp (Cloud Account)?

The uploading of a glossary is an optional feature that bring your glossaries (not the documents) to the cloud. If you use this feature, your glossary database (not documents) will be uploaded to our Germany-based server. With these functions, your data (glossary) leaves your computer and is temprarily saved on our secure server. Your database is not processed by us or third parties, if not for the purpose of mantiaing the service in function. You can delete your Cloud Account at any time.
