Continued increases in global business have caused a dramatic increase in translation requirements in companies, for user documents, marketing materials and customer support, necessitating fast, efficient and easy translation processes. Businesses must localize to see positive growth abroad and therefore require productive, open-interface linguistic solutions such as the Across Language Server, an independent, centralized platform for all corporate language resources that provides powerful end-to-end project management controls.
The Across Language Server offers authoring assistance, translation memory and a terminology system, but its distinguishing feature is its ability to enable customers, agencies and translators to seamlessly work with the same data. Open interfaces enable the seamless integration of corresponding systems such as content management systems (CMS) or quality assurance (QA) solutions. Several of these are being demonstrated through the Webinars.
"We designed these informative trainings for multinational businesses, translation service professionals and industry analysts who are looking for in-depth reviews of the newest translation management tools,” says Daniel Nackovski, president of Across Systems, Inc. “Our executives, partners and customers are experts in the industry and can ably demonstrate our capabilities to support localization and linguistic supply chain management.”
