Challenges – Improve margins, increase profit

Tight deadlines

Work across time zones

Content management systems – new

content types – ‘micro-translations’

Need to do more with the same amount

of resource

Managing return on investment - making

assets word harder

Challenges – Customer satisfaction and quality

○ Create differentiation

through quality

Ensure consistency of

quality

Increased advocacy for

terminology adoption

Focus on existing

customers

Productivity Quality Security

How to ensure quality in a collaborative workflow?

Access translation memories and

terminology in real time by multiple

users whereever they are

Consistent implementation of QA

checking rules (share project

settings in real time)

Everyone uses the correct files

Support ISO Certification

Productivity Quality Security

Challenges – protecting assets, control and data protection

○ Loss due to hardware failure, e.g. hard disk

crash or loss due to portable computers getting

stolen

○ Leakage of information and intellectual

property caused by full TM exports being sent

out to external parties, who can then distribute

such data to other parties without you being

able to control it

○ Control of complex workflows

Productivity Quality Security

How to ensure security, control and data protection?

○ Implement client/server paradigm – reduce

loss of data, stop leakage of intellectual

property

○ Provide managers with complete view of

progress, streamline workflows between

resources and enable automation of manual

tasks with alerts

○ Manage who can access your projects,

translation files and what level of authority

each user is granted.

Decision making – Desktop or (AND) Server

How to …. Step 1: Maximize Studio

Small team solution – do I need to invest in a server?

○ SDL Trados Studio can support file sharing without the need for

an application server! After all, it offers …

– Sharing of TMs and termbases over the local network

– QA functionality

– Review by non-Studio users

– Management of projects via Studio

– Functionality enhancements through apps and plug-ins

13

Understanding the limitations of file sharing

The limitations of traditional file sharing are often underestimated

○ Files were designed to be accessed by single users, not by multiple users

from multiple locations

○ Files are based on the computing paradigms of the 1980s, i.e. standalone PCs

○ However, in the past 20 years new IT paradigms have established themselves,

e.g.:

– Distributed locations

– Web-based collaboration

– Mobile computing

Client/server technology: send a query, get a response,

just like a Google search - no need to download loads of

data

Lightweight data access: on average a TU uses only 4KB.

It only takes a fraction of a second to transfer a TU

Not For External Distribution

SDL GroupShare in a Nutshell

A collaboration system to facilitate workflows between project managers, translators, reviewers, etc., that comes with an automated notification system

COLLABORATION

CENTRALIZATION

A client/server-based solution to centralize translation assets and make them available over the Intranet / Internet

Not For External Distribution

SDL GroupShare centralizes TM and termbase data and the actual files that require translation

• SDL Studio Groupshare Cloud is the cloud version of the on premise SDL Studio Groupshare solution

• It offers the same core functionality (Project, TM and MT Server)

• Customers don’t need to install any server software locally

• The server is hosted by SDL Cloud Operations (Slough)

• It is multitenant, but all the data and visibility of customers is segregated
