A Translation Management System (TMS) is a type of software specifically focused on the management of language-related projects and it’s used similarly to a Customer Relationship Management System (CRM). In this sense, customers can sign in and access a single platform, consisting of a user-friendly dashboard, containing the information that they need: quotes to approve, review the projects that are in progress, download their completed projects, get reports about their language projects and review invoices. Additionally, using Iris allows them to avoid duplicating work as the system automatically identifies previously translated content and it even links with every client translation memory so they can take advantage of content translated within different files. Finally, they can access their history making it simple to trace and retrieve old projects.
The right software can help you drop translation costs by 90% due to human error, unnecessary e-mail communications, and time spent uploading content and searching databases. Source: CSA
Our platform allows you to keep communications organized and tasks assigned correctly, avoiding the back-and-forth headache between client, project manager, translator, proofreader and designer. Everyone involved in the work process is connected on the same platform making the project seamless and well-orchestrated.
