Benefits of terminology management demonstrated by ALS article in tcworld

The latest edition of the tcworld e-magazine, published on March 1, contains the article “Raising productivity of automated translation: The factor of terminology”. In the article, experts from ALS discuss the benefits that terminology solutions have for the translation process. Years of experience as a language services provider have shown that providing approved, consistent terminology is critical for translating specialized texts: failure to do so can mean translators spend up to 90% of their time searching for the right words.

Recent research by ALS is presented, providing a quantitative evaluation of the impact that well-organized terminology resources can have on automated translation. To learn about the methodology, results, and conclusions of the study — as well as to see how technology can improve translator productivity and what companies can do to make automated translation more effective — visit the tcworld website.
