After the need for a new concept has been identified, how do we move from the initial request to approved multilingual availability of terminology via collaborative editing and validation processes? Can we ensure terminology is being applied correctly during content creation? Can we retain the interest in and motivation for terminology? Can we continuously prove benefits of managed terminology to management? During this session we will bring together three renowned companies that showcase their individual approaches to terminology workflow and authoring, as well as their use of reporting to gain valuable insights into these processes. We will demonstrate how these approaches ensure the continuous delivery of terminology.

Takeaways: Attendees will see that terminology is a continuous effort from requesting through validation all the way to checking; learn that fostering collaboration and participation are key; and that measuring the effectiveness and demonstrating benefits through key performance indicators are essential for a sustainable terminology process.
