progress comes from keeping up with new ideas, technology and opportunities.
GlobalSight is a TMS that lets you do all that and more.
GlobalSight provides an open source platform that leverages best-of-breed technology and talent while offering a flexible and sustainable solution for managing, translating and delivering ever increasing volumes of global content. The open-source Translation Management System (TMS) helps automate the critical tasks associated with the creation, translation, review, storage and management of business content and materials. Through an open modular design, organizations can depend on the customizability of a powerful, on-demand TMS tool backed by key industry players.
Benefits of an open-source model:
• Non-captive solution
• Scalability and sustainability
• Zero licensing fees (Apache 2.0 license)
• Standards compliance
• Connectivity to supply chain
• Application exchange model
• Extensibility through web services
The GlobalSight community embraces an ecosystem of enterprise clients, translators, language service providers, technology suppliers, universities, research institutions and individuals alike. Users benefit from the collective experience of the community, by collaborating with individuals and companies who share common goals and exchanging tips and best practices for trouble-shooting, product optimization and development of thin clients, plug-ins and add-ons that extend the functional breadth of the platform.
With zero license fees, GlobalSight provides a low-risk, flexible and sustainable technology at a fraction of the cost of commercial TMS products in the market today. By engaging the right players in the community, we can take the technology to the next level and transform a vital business function into a value-producing platform for next-generation translation supply chain management.
