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.
