A translation management system (TMS) is a software that allows the automation of many tasks associated to the translation process.
What is a translation management system?
Can’t I just save my translation documents in a spreadsheet?
Yes, you can. The problem that occurs when using spreadsheets for translation documents is that it is not efficient and very time consuming. By implementing FlowFit, you reduce labour costs and save an enormous amount of time by avoiding repetitive and redundant tasks.
What are some common examples of translation workflows?
A translation workflow is typically a three-step process with human professionals. The first step is where the translation takes place, followed by editing, which is then followed by a final proofreading.
What are the primary features that I should look for in a translation management system?
Workflow automation, reduction in management costs, range in customization options, accurate tracking of translator’s workload, full statistical reporting and analytics.
How is FlowFit different from other translation management systems?
FlowFit is dedicated to provide advanced expertise and technology in linguistic project management and provide clients with high quality solutions. Over the last several years, FlowFit has developed a proven expertise as a translation management provider.
Is FlowFit a translation memory tool?
No. Our software does not automatically translate content. Our solution automates manual steps in the process (sending files back and forth, manually creating documents, etc.)
What is a translation memory?
A translation memory is a “database” of your past translations. This assists human translators by providing pre-translated words and sentences.
How does a translation memory save you time?
A translation memory increases the productivity of a professional translator by allowing them to be more efficient in identifying and applying the best translations.
How does a translation memory reduce costs?
Translation memory reduces costs by providing you with ‘fuzzy,’ ‘close,’ and ‘exact’ matches and allow you to apply them to future work. This avoids translating content that has already previously been translated.
What is LogiTerm?
LogiTerm is a translation memory tool that is fully integrated with FlowFit. This allows for automatic word counts, a pre-translation of the document and a database that stores already translated words and sentences that can be used for other translation projects.
Will FlowFit send translation projects to me directly?
Yes. When a requester sends you a translation project, you are notified by email that a new request has been submitted to you.

Why should I implement a translation management system?
A translation management system (TMS) is an integrated program that facilitates the translation process of a project. Usually, if well developed, not only does a TMS track the translation process for you, but it conducts an overall evaluation of the project; thus generating full reports and cost savings from beginning to end of a project.
