Terminology work is time consuming and costly. In order to realize the many advantages that can be achieved, the terminology should be available in a usable format in every department and system as far as possible. Cooperative workflows and easy access are important, but not always sufficient. Making terminology universally available has many a difficulty.
- Supply different CAT tools with their different terminology formats with the approved terminology?
- Synchronize authoring or content management systems, but map them to a completely different logical data structure?
- Address the necessary “static” output formats, such as PDF?
- Provide software developers or designers with the approved terminology in their systems?
Making terminology from SDL MultiTerm universally available
If you are using SDL MultiTerm or SDL MultiTerm Workflow, we have a simple answer to these and many similar questions: Publishing MultiTerm. This software, previously available as a desktop version, is now integrated into the browser-based interface of MultiTerm Workflow, making it easily accessible via the web.
With Publishing MultiTerm you can:
- Select entries, terms, languages, etc., with pinpoint accuracy using the sophisticated and powerful filter functions in MultiTerm Workflow
- Transform and export content in various formats, such as PDF (including layout), XML, HTML, or CSV
- Automate the export and perform it at freely definable intervals
- Automatically “trigger” the target system to import the exported data
In other words, with Publishing MultiTerm you can make terminology managed in SDL MultiTerm Workflow universally available in every language across an entire enterprise. The benefits of this are felt on many levels.
Ideal for connecting with other systems…
There are a plethora of systems in a company that access terminological data, including ERP systems, design tools, PDM, and CAD tools, or content management systems. Publishing MultiTerm provides up-to-date, coordinated terminology from a single source to all these systems, regardless of the format used (from XML to CSV). Even printed or storable glossaries can be generated at regular intervals and in various formats, such as PDF or HTML, as part of an automated process.
… and other CAT tools
Publishing MultiTerm also opens up new perspectives for the world of translation software. Terminology data from SDL MultiTerm (Workflow) can now also be used easily and without problems in Memsource and memoQ; compatibility with further systems can be provided upon request.
