Software for Company-Wide Terminology Management
Regardless of whether you work in marketing, technical documentation, or a translation department, language is crucial for you. So, it's important that every employee in your company is using the same terms and that they all understand these terms, too. And they need to use them properly to keep external communication consistent. That's why you need the right terminology management software.
Create Consistency with Terminology Management
Digitalization, content marketing, globalization – these keywords represent a fundamental change. Gone are the days when it was enough to just give consumers information. These same consumers can now access downloads, reviews, and anything else that they want to know across all available channels. It is clear that if you want to be successful, you need to make sure that your communication is consistent. This is because all the departments – technical documentation, marketing, sales, R&D, customer support, etc. – have their own type of communication and not to mention their own special vocabulary. You can combine and monitor this internal "Tower of Babel" using a company-wide terminology management system.
Terminology Management for All
So, you want to develop, maintain, manage, and check terminology in your company. And you also want to ensure that your corporate terminology is being actively used and in translations too. However, it's only through a living terminology concept that you can standardize content, language, and communication. This enables you to bring clarity and precision to your content, accelerate the exchange of information, strengthen your image, and improve your competitiveness. Even legal issues – with possible financial losses – due to missing or incomplete information and documentation are a thing of the past! As you can see, terminology management provides you with an important foundation and a number of benefits.
