Terminology Management

Cut your costs with more consistent texts.


The terminology system is one of the standard components of Across. It aggregates all available information on every term in a well-structured form. Apart from the translation, this may include definitions, figures, or usage information.


Systematic Terminology Management: Consistent Terminology in All Documents

During the translation, Across proposes suitable terms for the current sentence, which you can directly adopt in the translation. crossTerm supports the entire process from the definition of preferred and forbidden terms to the editorial stage to translation, review, and quality assurance.
