Terminology is a company’s linguistic business card.
If it’s inconsistent, your brand image suffers. Terminology management helps your organization standardize its terminology, bring order to your corporate language, and strengthen your corporate identity.
The importance of terminology management to professional translation
Using ambiguous language can lead to problems, particularly in professional translations. The word “silk” in German, for example, doesn’t just mean the soft fabric. It also refers to a type of suture. If a medical journal translated from German into English refers to “silk,” it won’t make sense because English speakers do not refer to sutures as “silk.”
High quality translations must use correct and consistent terminology. For optimal translation procedure, we offer you professional terminology management that will facilitate order in your corporate language.
We support you with meticulous terminology management
We can help you structure your corporate language and pool your company’s agreed-upon terms into a terminology database. With the help of innovative terminology tools, our professional terminologists are able to compile databases, glossaries, and terminology lists.
These resources ensure that translations are done uniformly and can be integrated into all of your projects. Your documents will then be consistently and efficiently translated with a high level of quality.
Terminology management also positively affects translation costs, because it detects repetitions and calculates them with a lower price per word.
Our terminologists can extract possible inclusions to your terminology database from your existing documents. You determine which names, meanings, abbreviations, and acronyms are to be kept and then formulate a database that holds your company-specific terminology. We will also assume responsibility for the ongoing maintenance of your database.
The advantages of our terminology management include:
- Consistent terminology
- Positive corporate identity
- Use in all areas you designate
- Database maintenance by professionals
