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 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|General. The standard location for your terminology database and documents can be changed in menu Options. Nobody else can access this data. They are NEVER sent through the Internet.
What happens when I automatically extract terminology from my documents?
Your documents never leave your computer. The complex algorithms needed to perform terminology extraction are inside InterpretBank and therefore the computation is performed on your computer.
What about uploading a glossary to access it from any device?
The uploading of a glossary is the only optional feature of InterpretBank that bring your data to the cloud. InterpretBank has two optional functionalities you can use to access single glossaries in a Webbrowser from any device: Upload to access glossary from mobile devices and Upload to memorize glossary from mobile devices. If you use one of the two functionalities, the selected glossary 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. After 14 days the data on our server will be deleted. Forever. If you want to access your glossary again from everywhere, you need to upload it again. How often you like. If you are concerned about uploading your glossary, or your plices do not allow it, simply disable this functionality. This will not affect the core offline functions of InterpretBank! And if you are an enterprise, you can also use your own servers to host these two functionalities.
How does InterpretBank interacts with the Internet?
InterpretBank will collect, if you want, translation candidates while you are preparing a glossary, helping you to create better glossaries in less time. For this function, it mimics what you do to search a translation in Google: it takes your source term and looks up several trustfully services on line. 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 IATE.
How does the new feature of collecting a list of terms about a subject work?
InterpretBank will send to our server the term you insert to define the topic. Nothing more! It will then elaborate on this term using our algorithms to produce a list of related terms and it will send to you this list.
