If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact us.

Terminology is the special vocabulary used by professionals in different fields. Each professional field uses its own set of terminology. A company may also have its own professional terminology associated with its products and other aspects of its operations.

A term is a word or phrase used to describe a concept from a professional field. A terminology database is a collection of those terms.

Terminology Management

A terminology database is also called a terminology management system. Databases are created for storing and management of terminology for the purpose of consistent use of the terms and an efficient translation process.

Terminology databases allows translators to reuse previously translated terms, which save time and ensures consistency of terminology across translations provided for a particular client. Our experienced project managers and terminologists use SDL MultiTerm.
