Plunet and XTM announce technology partnership - common interface set for release in spring 2014
Berlin/London – Plunet and XTM International have signed a technology partnership agreement to develop a dynamic interface between Plunet BusinessManager and XTM.
Plunet BusinessManager is a leading business and translation management system for translation agencies and language service providers of businesses and institutions. One of Plunet’s main strengths is its superior flexibility and interoperability with other technologies.
XTM is a fully featured web-based CAT tool, used globally by many translators, LSPs and enterprises. The centrally stored TM and terminology interact dynamically with the translator workbench to create a truly collaborative environment for translation.
The new interface developed by Plunet will allow highly efficient interoperability between the two systems. The integration of Plunet BusinessManager and XTM will facilitate the centralized controlling and processing of business and translation processes via the Plunet platform. The integrated Plunet-XTM workflows will result in shorter project completion times and increased productivity at much higher quality by way of systematic automation, standardization, and interlocking of business and production processes. Detailed information on the functionality scope of the envisaged integration will be announced in coming months, and will be provided on request.
