Content authoring and translation frequently involve looking up technical terms in both the source and target languages. Such efforts, or terminology research, take up considerable time during content development, resulting in lost translation productivity. These haphazard efforts also often produce inconsistent or incorrect terms, causing confusion among readers and leading to poor product usability.

Time spent revising terminology errors results in launch delays, or worse— potentially millions of dollars in damages from product recalls or fines. For life sciences or other regulated industries, terminology errors can also lead to customer safety issues and regulatory compliance risks.

It is extremely important to provide translators with automatic terminology lookup when they need it. Unlike randomly searching the Internet for such information, collect and build a pre-approved term base and allow your linguists to access this information in-real time will ensure that your translators speak with one voice.
