TDA Goes Live Today - Skrivanek Cofounds Data Association

Prague, Czech Republic (PressExposure) May 20, 2009 -- Skrivanek Group is proud to be at the forefront of what is going to be one of the most important innovations in the translation industry.

The future of translation starts today with the launch of TDA (TAUS Data Association), a worldwide membership of 47 top global companies (Cisco, Microsoft, INTEL, Skrivanek etc.), in which all members contribute, sharing their translation memories and glossaries. The combined wealth of knowledge, which all members can draw on, is immeasurable. This will benefit not only Skrivanek as a Language Service Provider, but even more so its customers who make use of translation and localization services.

Skrivanek’s experience, in compiling and being able to employ our own terminology data bases and glossaries for many fields of specialization and languages, means that we were one of the first to recognize the imminent need for this association.

“Having this rich pool of data to draw on represents a strategic advantage for all contributing members. In terms of diversification, it will permit us to dare more individually. As a group, it will allow us to make full use of the rapid developments in technology enabling us to grow the translation market.” Jitka Steinmetzova, General Manager Skrivanek Group

Therefore, we are happy to be leading the way in what Skrivanek translation agency has always seen and supported as the natural and necessary evolution of the translation industry; and we support the principles on which it is based:

1- Industry-wide language data sharing in a neutral, open, legal, and secure environment 2- Moving the translation industry into an era of supercharged innovation where systems connect seamlessly and propriety business models make way for the needs of commerce and society

Skrivanek is proud to be a founding member of this association and will continue to seek out and support innovations that, like this one, benefit both our industry and our customers.
