Across Systems Sponsors Gilbane Webinar on Integration of Translation Management with CMS

Across Systems, supplier of independent linguistic supply chain technology, partners with Gilbane Group in a Webinar on the integration of content management system technology with translation management on Thursday, June 24 at 10 am PDT/1:00 pm EDT. The one-hour Webinar, entitled “The Integration Calculus: CMS + TMS = Turbo-accelerated Creation of Multilingual Product Documentation,” will include a case study presentation by Frank Erven, a language technology consultant and technical writer from Voith Turbo, a leading German industrial manufacturer serving paper, energy, mobility, and service markets. In 2006 Voith’s translation needs had grown by almost 80 percent. The company recognized the quality threat and risk of delay imposed by the volume increase; the need for a professional translation management system that could save time and improve the quality of documents became obvious. In this webinar, Voith shares its formula for success with multilingual product content creation and delivery. By integrating its content management system, Schema ST4, with Across Systems‘ translation management technology, the company now initiates and controls workflows automatically. Furthermore, the company was able to gain a continuous process from source text creation to multilingual document output, which saves it as much as 55 percent over its previous costs. The session will be moderated by Mary Laplante, vice president and lead analyst of Gilbane Group. Attendees to the Webinar will learn how content management, translation management, and smart content drive customer satisfaction. Register at https://www2.gotomeeting.com/register/922916738
