Translation Workflow - Make or Buy?

By: Johannes Purer, Managing Director - PURETRANS Language Services e.U.

At the Localization World conference last week in Seattle, this topic has been identified as one of the "hot topics" in the industry at this moment. There have been controversial discussions about buying an off-the-shelf product (such as LTC Organizer or project-open) or creating your own tool, which suits the needs of the company best.

In the Technology discussion group at the GALA Annual Meeting, we have decided to pick up this topic and start a web blog on it.

We therefore welcome any comments you have regarding this topic, or any experiences you would like to share with the rest of the world:

What tool are you using, what are the pros and cons from your point of view?
Did you create your own tool, what are the obstacles to look out for?
Are you validating tools at the moment, would you like to share some of your results?
Do you consider implementing such a tool in your company, what information are you looking for?
We do appreciate an open and frank discussion about this topic, but please no bashing of any kind.
