We, in partnership with SAP, was delighted to be awarded the 2022 ITCC Innovation Award for our Instant Translate tool earlier this year. We’re passionate about making learning accessible to all, and with Instant Translate, organizations and test-takers can now mutually benefit from assessments that can be read in a chosen language instantly.
Instant Translate from Questionmark
Winner of the ITCC Innovation Award 2022
Questionmark’s award-winning Instant Translate tool operates via machine translation, allowing test-takers to highlight any text they want to see in their chosen language and get an instantaneous translation right on screen and in-assessment.
It’s a powerful tool for fully translating a question, or simply double-checking a test-taker’s understanding of a particular word or phrase, which is particularly helpful for those people taking a test in their non-native language. Its interactive nature also means test-takers benefit from automatic translations on-screen and total flexibility as to when they use it.

What makes Instant Translate different?
Instant Translate is designed to use machine translation in a very specific way. Rather than removing test-takers from where they are in order to have to find a difficult phrase in a newly translated document, Instant Translate from Questionmark is built to allow test-takers to view a translation side-by-side with the original text.
Better still, Instant Translate will only translate the words a test-taker highlights, avoiding the unnecessary process of scrolling through a full-page translation. In doing this, Instant Translate takes all the power of machine translation to generate instant and on-screen translations while also placing control in the test-taker’s hands.
The result is a tool that provides the most immediate benefit to the test taker, allowing them to take a test fairly, while also helping ameliorate potential ambiguities in stand-alone machine translations.
"What SAP and Questionmark have developed to enhance support for non-native English speakers is truly remarkable and innovative. The On-The-Fly Real Time Translation Tool enables them to extend exam availability to multiple language speakers on day one, while saving program time and money. This is a great solution and well deserving of the ITCC Innovation award"
