Terminology is a company’s linguistic business card.
Terminology is the flagship and the business card of a company. It should always be used consistently. Terminology management helps your organization standardize its terminology, bring order to its corporate language, and strengthen its corporate identity.
The importance of terminology management to professional translation
The terms we have in our minds must have concrete names in practice. Think of a simple example such as "case." The term may be perfectly clear in your head. You think of a courtroom or a container. This example proves the importance of designating terms with concrete names. Using ambiguous language can lead to problems, particularly in professional translations. When translating the English word “silk” into German, it can be taken out of context and translated to mean a certain type of smooth fabric, when, in the medical context, “silk” refers to a type of suture. This can result in hospital brochures displaying false names and confusion for patients and staff. High-quality translations must therefore employ correct and consistent terminology. For optimal translation procedure, the translation agency Fasttranslator offers you professional terminology management that will facilitate order in your corporate language.
