Word of the Week – Equalizer

When Alvaro Morata scored for Spain with ten minutes remaining in their Euro 2021 semi final with Italy last night, he breathed new life into his country’s chances of winning the tournament. An hour later Spanish hopes were dashed, of course, when Morata’s missed spot-kick opened the door for Italy to win a dramatic penalty shoot-out. But that’s the nature of the equalizer. Winning is never guaranteed, but an equalizer keeps you on the field and keeps victory within your grasp.

That strikes a chord with us at XTM International, because the clients and partners we work with are far too experienced to expect easy wins to fall into their laps. They work in competitive arenas and fight hard for market share. We’re proud to support them because we see the value in their products and believe they deserve to find an audience.

XTM Cloud 12.8, the Symphony Release, helps them do precisely that. We’re client-led, and when clients tell us they value speed and precision in preparation of multilingual content – through language technology that quickly and accurately enables them to play all the right notes – we deliver results.

XTM Cloud 12.8 enables users to make bulk updates to multiple projects with one click of a button. Instead of having to amend small but important details of dozens or even hundreds of projects one at a time, users can now change multiple due dates, workflow start and finish dates or Project Manager assignments with one simple action.

When a Linguist works on a technical or creative message, we believe they benefit from seeing their work as their target audience will see it. Visual Mode for Microsoft Word and PDF files shows linguists what they’ve translated, side by side with the source text in real time, giving them an immediate flavour of the suitability and persuasiveness of their choices.

The talent and ingenuity of language service professionals mustn’t be underestimated, and it mustn’t be shackled. XTM International is two decades into our ongoing mission to give our clients choice and support in speaking to the world. The right Translation Management System doesn’t guarantee you a win, but it does offer you the platform for equally suitable and persuasive communication in each territory you explore. It levels the playing field.

XTM Cloud hands you the equalizer. You have to score the winning goal yourself. And when you do, no one will cheer more loudly for you than us.
