Maidenhead, UK -- SDL, the leading provider of Global Information Management (GIM) solutions, today announced the release of SDL Translation Management System 2007TM - a new release of its industry leading on-demand solution which empowers companies to create and reuse multilingual content throughout the complete global content lifecycle.

Global Information Management is a new class of enterprise solution, focused on helping companies address the challenges of doing business in today's global economy. By closely integrating with existing content management systems SDL Translation Management System 2007 manages the process of taking approved content, localizing it and making it available for a global audience. This provides an Internet hosted application that enables integration and visibility across the complete translation supply chain -- from content creation and content management to localization and publishing.

As part of the industry's leading Global Information Management solution, the new release of SDL Translation Management System 2007:

  • Automates the Complete Translation Supply Chain -- A two-way synchronization capability between SDL Translation Management System 2007 and SDL Trados 2007TM (recognized as the industry desktop standard) enables seamless exchange of content. This synchronization feature ensures enterprise organizations can share information with mission critical translation companies while keeping control over corporate global assets.
  • Enables Greater Language Content Reuse -- SDL Translation Management System 2007 drives even greater content reuse by leveraging both SDL Perfect MatchTM and Cross File Repetition Scanning technologies. By automating the task of validating new content against existing global information, SDL Translation Management System 2007 dramatically reduces the volume of text to be processed, leading to a reduction in localization costs while greatly reducing the overall process time.
  • Delivers Enhanced Quality Assurance -- SDL Translation Management System 2007 automatically checks documents for completeness and consistency during the localization process. This approach of 'managing-by-exception' reduces the time and effort needed to validate completeness of output.

"With an ever increasing number of products, shorter product life cycles and a drive to enter a greater number of global markets, many companies are facing increased pressure to provide local content," says Nick Hewson, Managing Director of Hewson Group. "GIM solutions from vendors like SDL are helping companies realize real benefits by better managing their global content."

Customers who are already seeing significant benefits of using SDL Translation Management System as part of their Global Information Management programs include Canon, Kodak, Philips, RS Components, Salesforce.com and Sun Microsystems.

"In today's business environment maintaining a consistent global presence is proving harder than ever," says Chris Boorman, Chief Marketing Officer of SDL. "With the increasing usage of the Internet, customers are demanding a higher level of service with a more local approach. SDL Translation Management System 2007 provides the engine required to drive the ever increasing volumes of localized content needed to provide true Global Information Management"
