Across Systems (news, site), the corporate translation management systems provider, is asserting itself as a force within the language industry. At conferences and special speaking engagements, they've been busy make the rounds and aiming to stay relevant. Highlighting their expertise within Content Management and Translation Management technologies, as well as their central software platform makes for good business.
TMS + CMS
Designed for all corporate language resources and for controlling translation processes and workflows, Across System simplifies, accelerates and improves the management, coordination and implementation of translations.
Using the Across Language Server
The software includes a translation memory, a terminology system and powerful project management and translation workflow control tools. Product managers, translators and proofreaders all work in one system, either in-house or via seamless connection to translation service providers.
Across claims that they are the "only major translation technology provider whose core business is software development". Recent mergers and acquisitions within the industry has made Across management even more committed to staying independent. So much so, they decided to back its promises with a money-back guarantee, to prove that independence is central to its strategic business objectives
Should it be acquired by another entity any time within the next five years, it will refund to its LSP customers any license fees they pay throughout 2009, although the licenses would remain in effect.
Spreading the Word
Starting next month, Across will make appearances at the Technical Communication Summit, the annual conference hosted by the Society for Technical Communication (STC) in Atlanta, Georgia and at the Association of Language Companies’ (ALC) 7th Annual Conference in Austin, Texas.
In addition, Across has invited technical writers, translators and language service providers to meet with Across during the conferences to discuss translation management needs. Appointments can be made online.
