The deployment of a translation management system (TMS) is recommended in order to enable marketing managers in enterprises that operate on an international scale to master their multi-faceted duties. The TMS is a centralized platform for creating, delegating, and finishing translation orders. It represents the link between the customer, translation service providers, freelance translators, terminologists, reviewers, and correctors.
Its central components are a customer-specific translation memory, a terminology database, and a translation tool. In addition, a TMS offers translation management and quality assurance features.
The open architecture of a TMS also enables the connection of various systems via interfaces, e.g. for content management, product information management, machine translation, or authoring assistance. In this way, a contiguous process chain can be set up for seamless data exchange.
The white paper "The Principle of Translation Management Systems" draws attention to the features and benefits of modern translation management systems.
