Terminology Management | Janus


Terminology Management

Consistency is paramount and a primary element of quality when presenting your brand, products and services to your customers and in the language industry. This component is managed through terminology and terminology is at the core of the translation process and the foundation of any successful project. Proper terminology management is critical to maintaining top-quality throughout a translation project and ensuring that the correct message is being transmitted in each target language. Having a well-defined, proper terminology list and pro-active continuous management of it saves time and money by reducing the number of review cycles, ensuring constancy, boosting efficiency.

Standardized terminology has many benefits:

  • Improve consistency across all corporate communication
  • Strengthen the value of the brand and associated intellectual property
  • Provide definitions and clarification of proprietary company terms and acronyms
  • Increase efficiency in the authoring and translation process by dramatically reducing review time
  • Improve B2B and B2C communication by making your terminology available to vendors
