Manage your terminology and strengthen your company’s communication.
Is it a coffee mug or a porcelain mug? Is it a collision guard or a corner bumper?
These are just a couple of examples to show just how many different phrases and terms can be used to talk about the same thing. If you choose the term coffee mug, you are focusing on the mug’s function, whereas if you choose porcelain mug, you are focusing on the material the mug is made from.
Are you in complete agreement about which terms and phrases you use in your company? Or do you in fact end up using different terms for the same thing in different documents and texts?
What is terminology management?
Terminology management is used to ensure that the same phrases and terms are used in translations every time. By defining and managing the terminology, you ensure
consistency in current and future texts and translations. Terminology management is extremely useful for writers and their translators, because it means they have a list of approved terms that they can use from the very first sentence.
