SDL MultiTerm

Terminology management - the difference is in the details

Terminology management at its best

Ensure the quality of vocabulary and specific terms by using SDL's terminology management tool, SDL MultiTerm. SDL MultiTerm is accepted worldwide by content owners, project managers, reviewers and translators to ensure consistency in terminology across all content types and languages. It can be used as a standalone desktop tool to create terminology databases and glossaries or with SDL Trados Studio to improve overall translation quality and efficiency.

Please note: MultiTerm is included for free, and will be available to download from your SDL account, when you purchase any SDL Trados Studio license.

Introducing SDL Trados Studio 2021!

SDL Trados Studio 2021 will transform the way you work. By combining the leading SDL Trados Studio translation environment with the new cloud based SDL Trados Live, the possibilities are endless.

Increase productivity in translation

  • Quickly and easily identify the correct term to use in the correct context with searchable term dictionaries and glossaries. Check the meaning or translation of a word in real time as you translate.
  • Customize your termbase to your needs, adding descriptive fields and references to provide more information about the term thereby saving on research time.
  • Insert digital media files such as images, sounds or video and hyperlinks to URLs and other terms to give an extra dimension to your termbase.

Create consistent content

  • MultiTerm’s integration with authoring tools means that the source content is ready for you to translate with consistent terminology.
  • Import and export terms from different technology environments, such as Microsoft® Excel, as well as other terminology formats such as the XML standard formats of TBX (TermBase eXchange) and OLIF means that you can easily share and work with existing terminology data.
  • With support for all languages brought to you by Windows 8.1/10, you can store an unlimited number of terms in unlimited languages, to enable you to manage the terminology for any translation project, no matter what size.

Share terminology for easier collaboration

Terminology can be shared through a number of SDL solutions, including SDL Trados Live Team. 

By sharing your centrally-stored terminology and termbases, translators, content creators and anyone within your translation supply chain can refer to the most up-to-date terms, wherever they are in the world in real-time.

Sharing is secure with full access rights management allowing you to stay in control, and provide the right users with the appropriate access to any termbase when necessary.
