Read full report

The Challenge

  • Standardize the company’s terminology
  • Establish stylistic consistency
  • Create an English-based corporate language
  • Improve the quality of source texts, in order to reduce translation costs

The Benefits

  • Consistent terminology across a minimum of four languages
  • Better market recognition, through use of consistent corporate language
  • Improved communication
  • Reduced translation costs
  • Decreased product liability risks as a result of clear documentation

Our customers should feel ‘at home’ when using our documentation. A high recognition value is one thing that makes this possible. The standardization of language plays a crucial role in this process. Moreover, the clearer we make our documentation, the lower the risk of misuse will be, and thus ultimately the risk of product liability. – Wolfgang Reiner, Technical Documentation, Leica Geosystems AG
