How to Select a Translation Management System
by Benjamin B. Sargent, Donald A. DePalma  

 
Summary

Technology selection generally involves 1) developing selection criteria, 2) making a shortlist, 3) identifying best-fit solutions using weighted business and technical requirements, and 4) undergoing a proof-of-concept before 5) making a final decision. We’ve structured this report to help prospective buyers think through the functional aspects of translation management and to ensure completeness of selection criteria. We describe software functions relating to 12 business needs commonly associated with the adoption of TMS; explain the background needed to build a shortlist of technology vendors; list 26 translation management solutions according to a typology based on system orientation; contrast the point solution strategy versus adoption of comprehensive systems; and discuss issues of cloud deployment, interoperability, hyper-utility of language assets, and special considerations for second-stage deployments.
