Terminology work takes time and costs money. To make the many achievable benefits a reality, terminology should be usable in all departments where possible. Cooperative workflows and easy access are important here, but are not always sufficient. Making terminology easily available does, however, present some hurdles.

After all, how do you

  • Supply different CAT tools with their various terminology formats with the approved terminology?
  • Synchronize authoring or content management systems, but map onto a completely different logical data structure?
  • Address required "static" source formats such as PDF time and time again?
  • Make approved terminology available to software developers or designers in their systems?

In other words, with Publishing MultiTerm, you can make coordinated terminology managed in MultiTerm Workflow available across the company in all languages, in a targeted manner, and with ease. You benefit from this on many levels.

Ideal for connecting to other systems...

After all, a wide variety of systems in a company access terminology data, e.g., ERP systems, design tools, PDM and CAD tools, as well as content management systems. Publishing MultiTerm ensures up-to-date, coordinated terminology from one and the same source – regardless of the format used (from XML to CSV). Even printed glossaries or glossaries that can be saved can be automated in various formats, such as PDF or HTML, and generated on a regular basis.

…and other CAT tools

Publishing MultiTerm also opens up new perspectives for the world of translation software. Memsource and memoQ terminology data from SDL MultiTerm (Workflow) can now also be used with ease; other systems will follow according to customer demand.
