The web-based terminology management tool

The web-based
management tool
TermWeb is an entirely web-based system for terminology management. It provides all members
of your organization–regardless of location–with
company- and industry-specific terminology via
your Internet browser or private company Intranet/
Extranet. Everyone can easily access updated and
comprehensive dictionaries and terminologies that
are stored in one central database, ensuring message accuracy and consistency at all times.
TermWeb is platform-independent and allows authorized users to create their own dictionaries or terminologies. Every user who identifies a new term
can submit it to existing glossaries, i.e. the database. Apart from by a written definition, the meaning and usage of each entry can be illustrated by
relation graphs, imported sound and image files as
well as by separate documents.
Once validated, the new terms can be published,
distributed and instantly accessed by all other authorized users. Should anyone apply incorrect terminology, TermWeb, when integrated with certain
applications, can send a notification suggesting an
approved term.
Fully integrated terminology management
TermWeb functionality enables integration of terminology management into existing company processes, such as XTM, Easyling, SDL
Trados Studio, Ontram, Acrolinx IQ, Microsoft Office, Adobe InDesign
and QuarkXPress as well as custom-made web components and many
publishing systems.
The integration functionality allows direct access to the terminology
at all times for content creators such as technical writers and copywriters, as well as for translators. Each user can choose the dictionary
or section of TermWeb that they want to synchronize with. If incorrect
terminology is entered, TermWeb can send a notification suggesting
an approved term.

Central installation at Interverbum Technology’s server site
TermWeb software–including your specific terminologies–can be
hosted externally at Interverbum Technology’s server site; all that is
required is a web browser and an Internet connection. Terminology
data can be imported via Excel, TBX, MultiTerm etc., or we will write
the necessary scripts to port your data to TermWeb and we’ll host and
administrate the system for you. Only you and your colleagues have
access to your terminology.
Local installation and administration on your company servers
TermWeb is also available for local installation on your servers. You
can purchase any number of licenses and access the software and
term database over your own secure Intranet/Extranet. If you use
multiple translation agencies, you can also give them access to your
terminology system, ensuring they always have the latest approved
terms. TermWeb can even be integrated with other systems, such as
your product data management, labeling, invoicing or bidding systems.
If you choose to subscribe to TermWeb, fixes, telephone/email support and upgrades are included. If you choose to purchase, an upgrade and support agreement gives the same degree of service.
The user interface and database structure of TermWeb can be adapted
to suit your graphical profile or other special needs.
