If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact us.
Terminology is a special vocabulary used by professionals in different fields. Each professional field uses its own set of terminology. A company may also have its own set of professional terminology associated with its products and other aspects of its operations.

A terminology database is also called a terminology management system. Databases are created for storing and management of terminology for the purpose of consistent use of terminology and efficient translation process.

A term is a word or phrase used to describe a concept from a professional field. A terminology database is a collection of terms.

Terminology databases allows translators to reuse previously translated terms thus saving time and ensuring consistency of terminology across translations provided for a particular client. Our experienced project managers and terminologists use SDL MultiTerm.
