Unclogging Long Translation Turn-around Times

The pressure to reduce turn-around times on translation projects exposes a bottleneck: post-translation desktop publishing. If documents sent for translation could be re-formatted automatically, turn-around times could be cut by 35%. This session will show you how rethinking the way content is created helps other companies unclog their translation processes.

In this session you will learn:

  • How unstructured authoring imposes limits on how much a content-update/translation/publication cycle can be compressed
  • How format-neutral authoring combined with style sheets eliminate post-translation desktop publishing costs and time
  • What other forward-looking organizations have done to expand their global market penetration with the extra translation money released by these kinds of improvements.
