Why You Should Insist On TM Capabilities From Your Translation Vendor
With an ever-growing global marketplace and diverse workforce, translation is no longer a luxury - it's part of the cost of doing business. How can you minimize that cost while ensuring you receive translations that say what you mean?
Whether your company uses the same information in different formats or you have material that requires frequent updates, it makes sense to leverage existing translations in order to both decrease overall costs and maintain consistency. So the question is "How do we keep track of what we have?"
Enter: Translation Memory, or TM for short. To anyone who has ever used on-line translation, it's obvious that the human element is paramount to translation quality. Computers are ideal for the mundane task of keeping track of data and retrieving it instantly. Combine the efficiency of a computer with the human touch and the beauty of TM becomes crystal clear. TM tools work silently in the background, scanning countless pairs of source phrases with existing translations to prompt any identical or similar phrases, thus reducing the work of the translator.
Cost reduction, consistency, eliminating the need to keep track of changes, and faster delivery are only a few of the advantages TM offers. Contact Us to discuss how TM can help you stay within budget while eliminating embarassing translations and puzzled faces from your foreign audience.
