tf-term: simply professional
terminology management

You disseminate knowledge with your corporate publications. But that’s not all: You also communicate your brand’s message. That’s why you want your company to speak with one voice in all your publications. But how can this be ensured across a variety of authors, text types and languages? The key is efficient terminology management.

What do we mean by that? Knowledge is conveyed through words. Knowledge can only be communicated successfully if all participants use the same term for the same subject or fact. In this way you avoid misunderstandings, costly inquiries and inconsistent content. The need for consistent terminology begins in the source language and continues with the translation into the target languages. This is where tf-term comes into play:

tf-term: home base for your
company’s terminology

tf-term was developed by the language experts at text&form to provide companies with an inexpensive entry into professional terminology management. The server-based online system allows you to define, manage and deploy your company terminology. Authors, translators and terminologists worldwide have access to the same term databases and can expand them by any number of languages. A role-based user administration allows granular access rights to be asssigned. You can add definitions, images and usage notes to terms. And you can add status and system information according to your own approval processes.

And the best thing about it: tf-term’s operation is so simple and intuitive, you almost forget that it is a full-fledged professional tool. This makes terminology work fun. And it helps you develop your corporate language consistently.
