Why Your Company Needs a Language Translation Tool

If your company has several applications, web pages, contracts, manuals, product descriptions, user guides, etc., that need to be translated into one or several other languages, you need to acquire and implement a language translation tool that will save you money, time and effort.

This translation software will not only streamline the translation process, but also make it easier to monitor projects' progress and help deliver high-quality content to your global audience quickly, ahead of competitors.

Let's take a look at what this type of tool consists of, its main functions, the multiple benefits for companies and how it helps to increase translation productivity.



What is a language translation tool and why is it useful for companies?

A translation tool is software or an application that provides assistance to professional translators when transferring content from one language to another.

This type of tool has the ability to manage terminology and even automate the translation process, making it easier and faster, and helping to obtain high-quality translations.

In the business world, language translation tools help companies compete at a global level. Thanks to these programs, translation processes are accelerated, enabling organizations to act quickly when launching products in new markets and new languages.

In addition, they help with the localization of projects. This means that both professional translators and other specialists involved in the localization process (designers, copywriters, linguists, developers, etc.) can rely on translation software to ensure that the product or advertising campaign is adapted to the language and culture of the target market.

The functions of a language translation tool

You can choose language translation software in the cloud or a desktop version. But, in general, the basic functions or features that allow your company to increase translation productivity are the following:

  • Translation memories (TMs). This is a database that stores the segments or sentences that the specialist uses during the translation process, so that they can be automatically reused in future translation projects containing similar or identical content.

  • Editing tools. A translation program contains tools that make it easy for the professional translator to review and modify the translations, if necessary.

  • Glossaries. This tool is essential. It is a database for specific or special terms used by each company and can display these terms to translators automatically when they come up in the source text. For example, product names or special terms for each commercial or industrial sector will be translated in a consistent and unambiguous manner.

  • Quality control. This is one of the most important features of a language translation tool. By means of a tracker, the system checks human translations in detail to detect all types of errors and notify them in an organized way. For example, errors such as spelling mistakes, formatting problems, double spaces, inconsistency, wrong numbers, etc.

  • Workflow automation. This function allows professional translation teams to set up rules, perform checks and track various translation/localization projects efficiently.

  • Ability to import and export various file formats. A language translation tool supports a variety of file types, allowing you to flexibly and quickly review, receive or send files in batches.

  • Integration with existing enterprise systems. A language translation tool adapts to the technology and workflows of each company and each type of content. For example, when translating the home page of a website or translating support chat content.

  • Collaborative translation. A language translation tool allows teams collaborate in a single space and includes features such as chat and status management. In addition, it can be integrated with project management systems.

  • Machine translation (MT). Language translation tools are using machine translation more and more to translate content and limit the human's work to the essential parts. Of course, to maintain quality, the professional translator performs post-editing work to verify the results and correct any errors.

The benefits of using translation software

Companies that wish to expand into other regions or countries and need to transfer their content from one language to several target languages will see the following benefits when adopting translation software:

  • Improved translation productivity. Thanks to a language translation tool:

    • Professional translation teams do not spend time translating everything over and over again, because they can retrieve the same phrases or segments that have already been translated using translation memories.

    • A simplified workflow is created, in which translators are only responsible for translating.

    • Large amounts of information can be automatically translated using machine translation, while the professional translation team takes care of post-editing only.

  • Consistency between projects. Thanks to translation memories, the different professional translators in charge of each project can automatically access a unique database with technical and specific terms for a given company or brand.

  • Data analysis, both at project management and translation level. Translation software can track the whole process. Follow every step, monitor users, word count, etc.

  • Flexibility. Translation software allows the automation and customization of standard workflows to be tailored to the company's requirements. In addition, if these systems are stored in the cloud, team members can access them from any mobile device, giving them flexible location and working hours.

  • Saves money. This software helps companies control the entire process and the costs related to each professional translation project. It also facilitates fast turnaround and delivers consistent, high-quality translations at a fraction of the cost of a professional translation project.

  • Safeguards brand reputation. Translation software can improve the quality of human translations. In addition to detecting and reporting errors, it maintains consistency. It therefore keeps the brand image intact.
