SDL's solutions for manufacturing
Buyers today expect more detailed, relevant and local information from manufacturers to help them make purchasing decisions and get the most out of using your products. They also want to engage with you in different ways than ever before.
SDL solutions for manufacturing help you:
- Achieve more with less in your delivery of personalized, local content for users. This includes service and support information - user manuals, software diagnostic material and training material – as well as web content
- Ensure consistency as you reuse content across multiple formats and across different products
Achieving more with less in your delivery of personalized, local content for users
Despite greater demands for more localized and targeted content, localization teams are often unable to scale-up headcount in order to meet demand via a larger deployment of the same localization process. With a mantra built around lean processes and efficiencies, documentation and localization departments need to find ways to overcome inefficiencies and guarantee on-time delivery of new content.
By leveraging SDL language technology solutions, world-class manufacturing organizations have optimized documentation and translation processes to reduce time-to-market for more localized, targeted content. In addition, through deployment of more efficient processes, end-to-end localization costs are reduced and terminology consistency is increased. Automated translation solutions can play a vital role in raising customer satisfaction by extending the number of languages delivered through support portals and knowledge bases and therefore enhancing user experience. In addition, our web content management solutions ensure centralized global brand management with flexibility for local marketers as well.
Ensure consistency as you reuse content
Structured content facilitates content re-use which enables faster time to deployment, quicker reach to global markets, significantly decreased translation costs and an overall boost to enterprise-wide efficiency and productivity.
Structured content technology solutions offer methods for managing re-use of content within product families so that similar products can share parallel content. In addition, the ability to incorporate others into the content creation and review process is made simple via a web-based, user-friendly interface and workflow. These tools and technologies maximize the efficiency of your documentation processes while delivering quality, consistent content to your customers.
