Ensure Consistent Communication
"Communication and marketing is the voice of a brand and constitutes a long-term investment in its success. It is the means through which a brand's identity and its positioning is made visible at all the relevant points of contact with customers and other stakeholders. This makes it possible to build a clear and preference-based brand image or reinforce an existing one." Franz-Rudolf Esch, Handbuch Markenführung [Branding Manual], 2019
Your marketing department works with Adobe InDesign and your translators with Trados Studio. Meanwhile, your developers are working with tools such as , MS Word, Excel, and PowerPoint. Most of the time, countless other programs are being used as well. And across all of them, you want, no, you need to check the terminology to ensure consistent communication.
Terminology Control on a Single Platform
But unfortunately it's not enough to just avoid using forbidden terms. No, you need to check for any incorrect variants, spellings, and compositions too. After all, you've had bad experiences with run-of-the-mill tools that check purely whether a term stored in the termbase appears in the text.
Kalcium Checkterm detects "house" as well as "houses" and even identifies composites that contain the word "house". Conventional review mechanisms already fall at these kinds of hurdles.
Should all these options also be available directly in Adobe InDesign, MS Word, Trados Studio, <oXygen>, XMetaL, Visual Studio, or Visual Studio Code via a clipboard or API integrated into specific applications such as ERP systems? Then Kalcium Checkterm is just the tool for you!
Fast and Easy Terminology Verification with Kalcium Checkterm
Consistent communication using Checkterm: you can use your valuable termbases to automatically improve your content. We have consciously sought to eliminate the "effort" required by the user. Depending on the program being used, you simply select the text and check it by hitting a hotkey. Excel, PDF, and PowerPoint files are of course part of the repertoire - while for Microsoft Word, Trados Studio, Adobe InDesign, <oXygen>, XMetaL, Visual Studio, and Visual Studio Code, special plug-ins make the process even easier. A browser-based solution is also available. Not only does this give everyone in the company access to the central language "repository", but it also provides an easy way for you to check that the terminology is actually being adhered to in every text and translation. This will ensure the linguistic consistency of your content both internally and externally – much to the satisfaction of everyone from the marketing department to the legal department. Consistent advertising materials, more efficient search engine optimization, optimized communication, and an improved image are just some of the benefits, not to mention avoiding patent disputes and product liability lawsuits.
