Terminology management

Every company has its own unique language with its own specialist vocabulary: it shapes the company’s identity and projects it to the outside world. It is therefore crucial that this language is used consistently across all media channels – and in foreign-language translations, too.

Variant spellings of the same word can lead to misunderstandings and confusion. Inconsistent usage could even put your company at risk: it could lead to the incorrect use of complex machinery, for example, or leave your customers bewildered by incomprehensible texts. In the worst case scenario, it could result in a customer deciding against your product or service.

Inconsistent terminology can also lead to high follow-up costs. Each error in terminology in the source language is multiplied by the number of target languages, occasionally causing major problems.

Professional terminology management is therefore crucial, as is consistent use of terminology throughout the entire product and service process. We will help you to use consistent terminology in your products, manuals, marketing documents and websites.

Consistent terminology and professional management processes:

  • reduce your direct and indirect translation costs and enable you to reuse previous translations
  • reduce follow-up work and thereby shorten lead times
