oneSuite modules at a glance

oneTerm for clear terminology management and collaborative terminology work

All available language resources – such as terminology data and translation memories – must be integrated in the best possible way so that linguistic specifications can be optimally integrated into translation processes. In oneSuite, our comprehensive translation and localisation tool, various modules mesh together seamlessly. We present what each module can do and how they complement one another in a short blog series.

Following on from our oneReview correction platform, we now present our terminology management system oneTerm. Simple, browser-based and flexible software for terminology management and terminology work.

The starting point: Terminology management: the elephant in the room that everyone ignores

Terminology is the unique specialist language of each company. Using these consistently across all departments and countries is the task and goal of terminology management. (More on this in the article “What is terminology management?”) Professional terminology management and systematic terminology administration offer numerous advantages. Aside the obvious ones – including fewer misunderstandings, reduced need for corrections and easier work for editors, copywriters and translators – a clean terminology database also provides the foundation for modern translation technologies such as MTPE (Machine Translation + Post-Editing) and AI applications. This is because specialised terminology is and remains an important part of adapting texts and translations to a company’s desired specifications.

Nevertheless, experience shows that in many companies terminology is not given the importance it requires in order to ensure consistent communication. The direct benefits are often not (immediately) recognised or not properly evaluated by those responsible for the budget. In addition, the departments in charge consider the time and effort required to screen and clean up existing terminology that has grown over the years to be very high. If there is also a lack of overview and knowledge about which tool is suitable for individual needs and in what form, the introduction of terminology management is postponed again and again.

The solution: intuitive terminology management with company-wide real-time access

With oneTerm – a component of oneSuite – we have created a complete solution that enables a simple, fast and resource-saving entry into terminology management.

One highlight here is that oneTerm is server-based and accessed easily and conveniently via a browser and without on-site installation. This means everyone in the company can access the terminology database in real time. Different user roles ensure that your terminology data stays in safe hands. You define who can only look up terms or who is also authorised to suggest, check or approve terminology.

oneTerm makes it possible to create, maintain and manage corporate terminology clearly and in any number of languages. The intuitive visual representation, in particular the symbolic display of core information on the use and process status of terms, provides all users with low-threshold access to handling terminology data.

Batch editing of entries – for example to change the process status – is also possible at any time and helps to update extensive databases and many languages quickly and with just a few clicks.

You have a wide range of options when designing and using the database: The flexible database structure ensures you can map and add all the necessary information. Sophisticated search and filter options based on the stored information not only facilitate the management of existing terminology, but also highlight the tool as a practical reference work for everyone in the company.

Numerous connectivity options to other tools make it possible to use and expand terminology databases efficiently: terms without a target language equivalent can be filtered out and entered into a project for equivalence research in one click. Your terminology databases can also be directly integrated into our correction tool oneReview. oneTerm supports all common standards and exchange formats so that the data can also be used in other tools, such as content management systems and many other programmes.
