State of Localization Industry Report
It’s finally here! We’re pleased to share that our inaugural State of the Localization industry report is now freely available to all. Written from survey and interview data collected from more than 900 respondents, the State of Localization report highlights key trends and dynamics that professionals in the industry are experiencing.
State of Localization Industry Webinar
To dive deeper on analysis of our recent report, we held a webinar to walk through the report findings, surface additional data not included in the report, and discuss the implications of the findings for the future of localization and global experience design.
If you missed it, never fear! You can access a recording of the webinar here.
New Feature: Multilingual Asset Management
Management of multilingual assets has been a core challenge for localization programs for years. Content becomes outdated, company preferences change, and updating linguistic assets is manual, slow, and error-prone.
We’re excited to announce Multilingual Asset Management, a new automated solution that eliminates hours of manual work, reduces opportunity for errors, and enables companies to deliver a more unified global customer experience through high-quality content.
This new feature allows teams to react quickly to brand and terminology changes, staying up-to-date with changing company preferences.
The feature provides automated quality checks, identifying mismatches between a customer’s legacy TM and current termbase. Once identified, a reviewer can assess each mismatch and update the TM to align with the current termbase, creating higher-quality, more brand-aligned linguistic assets.
The solution also will provide automated quality checks for grammar and spelling, helping customers build more accurate linguistic assets that enable better global content quality and consistency.
Kel Commins, Lilt’s Head of Solutions, shared his perspective on the pressing industry need for this next-generation tool in a guest post on our blog here.
