Interactive Online Tool Provides Objective Method for Comparing and Evaluating Translation Technology Vendors

(BOSTON) – Translation management systems (TMS) tools facilitate the rapid development, day-to-day management, and publishing of multilingual content in the estimated US$31 billion-dollar language services industry.  Companies adopt TMS to address an array of challenges, but the selection process can be challenging.  Now, there is a new interactive tool that enables users to quickly identify and compare TMS tools that are best-suited to meet their requirements. TMS Live!, developed by independent market research firm Common Sense Advisory, provides an objective and detailed model for buyers and vendors of language services to use when selecting technology vendors for evaluation, shortlisting, and negotion.

TMS Live! currently includes 14 technology vendors: Clay Tablet Technologies, Kilgray, LSP.net, Lionbridge , MemSource, MultiCorpora, Ontram, Plunet, SDL, Sajan, Text United, Translations.com, Welocalize, and XTRF.

Comments Ben Sargent, senior analyst at Common Sense Advisory and TMS expert, “There is ongoing demand from our research clients for input on which tools are best suited to their TMS needs. Now, in addition to our research and advisory services, they have an interactive, objective, always-up-to-date tool at their disposal 24/7.” He adds, “This tool saves our clients time and makes it much easier for them to stay on top of the developments in TMS technologies.”

Key components of the tool include:

  • Objective scoring of feature completeness across 10 different functional areas commonly found in commercial TMS solutions
  • Sorting capability between business-, language-, and workflow-oriented systems
  • Distinct scores for all areas in each platform to allow for side-by-side comparisons and quick elimination of systems unsuitable for specific use cases
  • Regular updates on developments and roll-outs by TMS vendors
  • Easy feature checkbox selection function to automatically filter the products and return only those products that meet specified requirements

TMS Live! is the only interactive solution selection tool on the market to-date, and is based on more than five years of the firm's TMS research. It is available through a license to any one of Common Sense Advisory’s research programs.
