Terminology management and application tools integrated into Linguaserve's platforms
SDL MultiTerm Desktop SDL MultiTerm Desktop allows terminology management to ensure the terminological consistency of translations carried out as a team. Managing a company's terminology makes it possible to capture, control and distribute key phrases, terms and brands, providing consistency in communications with end users by ensuring consistent terminology. SDL MultiTerm Extract is an application for the automatic extraction of termbases and glossaries, with the option of mono- or bilingual term extraction from documents or translation memories. SDL MultiTerm Extract generates statistical views of the use of terminology in the client's termbases, helping with the quality assurance process and with the consistency of the client's termbases.
SDL MultiTerm Online Terminology management with the client's users can be carried out and coordinated using the interactive Web tool SDL MultiTerm Online. The terminology data integrated into SDL MultiTerm Desktop and TermStar are exported from this collaborative application and used for translation, checking and quality control tasks.Diagram of collaborative functioning of terminology maintenance

The widget captures the text indicated with the mouse pointer and copies it directly into its search field.
