t’works Giveaways

The new, completely rebranded t’works logo is now visible pretty much everywhere. We’d like to celebrate this with some new giveaways. Because it’s summertime, we decided to hand out colorful beach balls in keeping with the new multicolored logo, and 1-liter glass water bottles, wrapped in a dark blue, easy-to-grip cover.

Words matter

The special words and phrases used in relation to your company or organization create its identity, its very own terminology or language. In this blog we’ll look at the benefits of formalizing company terminology, how that is achieved and why it helps the localization process. 

Managing terminology is better with technology

Managing terminology is therefore better with technology. Incorporating a terminology tool into localization means consistent and effective global communication of your brand and products, as well as better enterprise-wide collaboration. But just how much will the software do? Where does the role of the language professional stop and start and what part does the client play? Nuts and bolts time.

What is terminology and why does it matter?

Managing terminology is a big deal in the translation ecosystem.  It is a priority investment area for language service providers (LSPs) and is often highlighted as one of the keys to a successful localization strategy. A survey conducted in 2020 showed 46% of responding language companies planned to further invest in terminology management for 2021 and it was ranked in the top three technologies within the industry. 

What is terminology?

Terminology is defined as all the terms and designations commonly used in a subject area. It is therefore the technical vocabulary, formed from the technical terms, which enables efficient technical communication in the first place and reflects your company’s expertise.

Certified or not certified?

When official documents are required to present to agencies or public authorities in a language other than their original language, these translations must usually be officially certified to be considered legally valid. But why is that?

Review from The Tool Box Journal

The translate5 Consortium of which t’works is a founding member, has received a positive review from The Tool Box Journal, a leading newsletter for the translation industry written by Jost Zetzsche an independent translator and localization consultant.

Earth Day

Earth Day on 22nd April is more than just one day of the year for us all at t’works. We’re working hard to make sure that we always have Earth Day in mind and that we’re doing as much as we can to protect the planet.

In celebration of Chinese Language Day

As one of the six official languages of the United Nations, Chinese has its own day of celebration on 20th April every year. By ‘Chinese’ the UN is referring to ‘Standard Chinese’, also widely called ‘Mandarin Chinese’.

Patent translations

Among the “Services & Solutions” presented on our website you will find, among many others, the “Patent Translations” section. What exactly are patent translations, though? In this article, we address this question and explain in more detail what a patent is, why and for what purposes a translation is required in this respect, and the qualifications a patent translator has to have.

AI, Language and Healthcare

It’s only natural that as AI technologies start to help humans live easier and more tech-based lives, the part they play in the realm of healthcare is becoming significant. An already fast-paced, innovative and high investment industry is being propelled into the future by the coronavirus crisis, and as we have previously mentioned in our blog posts, the pandemic is accelerating digitalisation in medicine.
