The pressure is on

It is apparent that the requirements of customers in the translation industry are continuously evolving and challenging existing ways of working. This eBook explores how translation technology is keeping up with the pace of change and outlines how your business can adapt to new ways of working.

Increasingly complex jobs need efficient project management

Jobs are getting larger and more complex, while turnaround times are getting faster. Therefore processes like chunking large jobs into several small projects and distributing translation assets to multiple recipients have become common, but have substantially increased project administration.

By using centralized platforms like SDL Trados GroupShare, project management and communications can be automated, simplifying and speeding up the translation process.

Use a hybrid of cloud and desktop tools and receive the benefits of both

50% of language professionals require cloud and desktop to be integrated, and with good reason. Cloud based tools can offer advantages through features like machine translation and access to shared translation assets. SDL Trados Studio for example, offers connections to LC machine translation, offering you the power of desktop translation while retaining the benefits of the cloud.
