Maidenhead, U.K. – January 24, 2012
SDL (LSE: SDL), the leading provider of Global Information Management solutions, is pleased to announce the availability of SDL Studio GroupShare™, a collaboration hub for groups of translators and project managers. This new product allows small translation departments, translation agencies, governments and ad-hoc teams of individual translators to work together more effectively to improve productivity and collaboration. Ultimately, it enables companies to engage with consumers in their preferred language, enriching the customer experience.
As organizations adapt to a more dynamic, constantly evolving business pace, the way individuals and teams work together is changing. To address this, SDL Studio GroupShare combines translation memory, terminology and project management in a single collaboration hub. Translators and localization teams benefit from improved translation quality, faster project turnaround, reduction in overall project overhead, effective use of resources and skills, and on-going visibility of projects.
“SDL Studio GroupShare allows us to be more flexible in the way our teams organize themselves, assign resources and manage distributed projects,” explained Klaus Fleischmann, managing director at eurocom Translation Services GmbH. “This makes the whole group more efficient and ensures that all project-specific know-how and settings are recalled to be reused and leveraged in future projects.”
SDL Studio GroupShare is designed to be simple enough for a team to manage, while sophisticated enough to provide the functionality needed to collaborate and gain significant productivity on tasks. It’s out-of-the-box integration with SDL Trados® Studio, the world’s leading product for translator productivity, enables teams and groups of translators to instantly be more productive in a familiar environment.
“With increasing translation demands and new ways of working gaining traction, we have worked with our customers to learn how we can help them be successful in a more dynamic translation environment,” explained Swamy Viswanathan, senior vice president of products and marketing for the SDL Language Technologies division. “SDL Studio GroupShare focuses on collaboration and sharing, enabling teams to function more efficiently and to steamline and reduce errors in the localization process. It represents further innovation to enrich our customers experience and to enable them to respond to the dynamic business changes of an evolving market.”
