What is translation management?
Translation management is the automation of the translation process, eliminating repetitive and laborious manual tasks while enabling control and delivering greater efficiency. This process coordinates the translation of content into multiple languages and the involvement of various stakeholders. It employs technology, tools and workflows to streamline the process, ensuring accuracy and consistency.
Translation management is particularly important for businesses and organizations that operate in multiple countries or regions and need to provide their content in multiple languages. Effective translation management ensures that the translated content resonates with the target audience.
