Global brand or product success hinges on localization. Localization enables brands to connect with a worldwide audience, fostering brand loyalty, and image enhancement. However, complex localization processes can lead to delays, damaging a brand’s image and financial prospects. The key to mitigating these issues is the adoption of the right technology, such as a translation management system (TMS).
With XTM Cloud, you can streamline your localization processes thanks to automation and centralized tools and communication, slashing your time-to-market times and ensuring that all your product content is ready on time, and consistent in tone and voice, ready to gain a competitive advantage by conquering new markets faster.
Optimize your workflow steps to accelerate efficiency and remove unnecessary delays caused by offline communication or human error.
Centralized language assets
Create a single source of truth ensuring that all linguists are using the most up-to-date terminology and brand’s content guidelines in all their projects.
Integrations with content software
Remove time-consuming manual tasks by integrating XTM Cloud with your content software, such as repositories like GIT and Jira, PIM systems like Akeneo, or authoring platforms like WordPress, Adobe Experience Manager, or Kontent.ai. This results in a single localization workflow for added efficiency and speed.
Configurable translation memories
Accelerate arrivals in new markets by reusing existing translated content in a different locale of the same language (e.g. Portuguese for Portugal and Portuguese for Brazil) and applying localized edits without having to start from scratch, promoting consistency, saving time, and reducing costs.

Localization is adapting content to suit specific languages, cultures, and regions. It’s vital for product managers as it enables them to launch their products to new markets successfully by appealing to local preferences, complying with regional regulations, and creating a personalized user experience, ultimately driving growth and global market penetration.
Localization speeds up time-to-market by minimizing the need for extensive content creation from scratch. It leverages existing translations and assets, reducing the time spent on adaptation. This enables product managers to swiftly launch products in new markets, gaining a competitive edge and reaching global audiences faster.
A Translation Management System (TMS) streamlines and automates the translation process, centralizing translation assets, and workflows. It ensures consistency, improves collaboration, accelerates project timelines, and reduces costs. Without a TMS, managing translations becomes time-consuming, error-prone, and less efficient, hindering global market expansion.
Workflow automation in a TMS automates repetitive translation tasks, streamlining the localization process for product managers. It reduces manual effort, accelerates project timelines, enhances consistency, and minimizes errors. This efficiency allows product managers to bring their products to global markets faster and more effectively while maintaining quality.
A TMS ensures brand consistency by enabling linguists to leverage up-to-date, centralized language assets such as style guides or glossaries that outline tone, voice, and key terminology. By utilizing translation memories and terminology-management features, these guidelines are applied across all languages, ensuring translations in all languages align with your brand’s identity and messaging consistently.
