Mismanaging terminology can not only delay global product launches, but in certain industries, such as the medical and pharmaceutical fields, mistranslating and mismanaging terminology can actually lead to devastating results, and even death.
Cupertino, CA (PRWEB) April 08, 2015
Net-Translators, an industry leader in translation, localization, internationalization and multilingual testing services, announced today the hosting of a complimentary webinar on Thursday, April 30th, 2015 from 11:00 am - noon PDT titled “Managing Source Terminology Even if you Don’t Translate”. The 60-minute online presentation features Val Swisher, CEO of Content Rules, Inc., and David Sommer, Director of Strategic operations at Net-Translators. Additional information and registration is available at http://www.net-translators.com/knowledge-center/webinars/managing-source-terminology-even-if-you-dont-translate.
Properly managing source terminology is a critical step to ensure consistency throughout a company’s content and to provide a high-quality end user experience, even if the content doesn’t get translated. If content gets translated, the success of a localization project often depends on proper management of the terminology.
David Sommer of Net-Translators notes, “Mismanaging terminology can not only delay global product launches, but in certain industries, such as the medical and pharmaceutical fields, mistranslating and mismanaging terminology can actually lead to devastating results, and even death.” He adds, “I’m thrilled to team up with my good friend, Content Rules founder and CEO Val Swisher to share with our audience how to manage the terminology life cycle in an efficient, collaborative, and Web 2.0 workflow”.
Ms. Swisher and Mr. Sommer will introduce webinar attendees to the discipline of terminology management, why source terms need to be managed, and the benefits of doing so. Targeting anyone involved in creating content, managing terminology, or localization and translation, the knowledge shared in the webinar will allow attendees to start managing terminology so that content is consistent, readable, translatable and easy to find.
