Welocalize to Present How to Crowdsource Terminology Translations Efficiently at Tekom and Tcworld Annual Conference in Wiesbaden Germany
FREDERICK, MD – October 22, 2013 – Welocalize, a global leader in translation and localization solutions, will speak at the tekom and tcworld annual conference, taking place in Wiesbaden, Germany, November 6 – 8, 2013. The tcworld conference, together with the tcworld and tekom fair, is the largest global event and market place for technical communication.
Welocalize’s Christian Zeh and Lena Marg will deliver a joint presentation, “Teaminology – A New Crowdsourcing Application for Collaborative Term and Translation Governance” at 12:15 PM on Thursday, November 7.
The presentation will focus on how global enterprises can best use “their crowd” to define standard company terminology in many languages. Using Welocalize’s Teaminology, a terminology manager translation tool, organizations will learn how to compile a list of common terms and send them out to a trusted, multilingual community for validation and input. The community has the ability to vote on the proposed translation or suggest a new translation. The terminology manager utilizes the translation tool as an easy way to decide which term to use based on how the crowd votes.
“Using actual case studies and examples, we will share how Welocalize Teaminology helps large corporate organizations maintain a dictionary of commonly used terms for their global products using crowdsourcing,” said Christian Zeh, director of business development at Welocalize. “It is essential for global organizations to protect and maximize brand value. Crowdsourcing is growing in use in localization and translation. We will share how to ensure standardized terms, messaging and brand values are correctly and consistently represented in all international markets.”
