Objectives and types of TMS
The following presents a brief overview of the objectives of using translation management systems:
- Ensuring consistency: even across projects completed years apart.
Acceleration of the translation process: shorter processing times.
- Continuous cost reduction with consistent high quality: the more segments saved in a translation memory, the more hits can be found and the greater the cost saving.
- Saving terminology which, similarly to repeated segments, is displayed to the translator where relevant.
As every project is different and because we offer customers different workflows according to their requirements, we use a broad range of translation management systems:
Across Language Server
SDL Trados Studio
All of the software solutions can process a range of file formats. We decide on an individual basis which tool we use for each customer. The workflow is defined according to specific customer and project requirements.
As translation management systems are part of our everyday work at tsd, we also place great emphasis on selecting employees who are experienced and confident users of these programmes. We also hold regular training seminars for our employees as part of our quality management system.
Through constant contact with our partners and by monitoring new market developments alongside regular evaluation of various approaches, we are always up-to-date and able to adapt to specific working processes as well as react to new requirements.
