Terminology management at a glance – our range of services
Terminology extraction and terminology creation
Extracting terminology from your company's text-based material, and verifying or defining terminology entries in a fixed and binding manner, are the cornerstones of creating a terminology database. This process allows you to integrate (or clean up) terminology that is already being used in your company. We work together with you to define the type, scope and structure of your future terminology entries, to create the best possible process for continued expansion.
Once you have specified and defined the source terminology in your company language, we can either define what its equivalent terms are in other languages, or translate it in accordance with our ISO 17100-compliant translation processes.
Our carefully selected team of technical translators, all of whom are native speakers with specialist technical backgrounds and many years experience, ensure your terminology is translated into other languages accurately. If necessary, it can be modified to reflect your terminological requirements or suit terminology that is already present in the other languages. Our terminology experts and teams of translators will always discuss alternative suggested translations and have the translations approved by you and your local representatives.
If you would like to know more about the various methods and steps involved in translating terminology, before, during and after the translation process, please contact our terminology experts.
Terminology management and terminology maintenance
The continuous process of adding to and modifying terminology entries is a vital aspect in ensuring a well-maintained set of company terminology that is truly fit for purpose. Every time a term or a product name is modified, every time the status alters, for example preferred/inappropriate term, these changes must be recorded in the terminology. This then involves a number of administrative issues: Who has the rights to manage terminology (and which rights are these)? How can we make sure the terminology is updated and maintained on an on-going basis? How is terminology made available, and by whom (see also Terminology databases)? For more information , go to terminology databases. Working together with you, we will design processes which exactly meet your requirements whilst staying within your budget.
