TERMINOLOGY AND KNOWLEDGE MANAGEMENT
Knowledge is among the most valuable capital of any company. Structuring, visualizing and making this knowledge retrievable makes your corporate environment highly transparent. Viewers immediately understand concepts, designations and relationships. This is valuable, for example, when it comes to developing new products, analyzing and solving problems or when onboarding new personnel. There are numerous situations in which structured, visualized knowledge is of vital importance.
A multi-lingual and auditable terminology database derived from such a knowledge map helps to improve product communication, simplify the translation process and reduce translation costs. Well-defined terminology sets you apart from your competitors and helps to reduce expenses caused by misunderstandings. Consistent product terminology and defined language also strengthen your corporate identity.

“When I use a word,” Humpty Dumpty said, in rather a scornful tone, “it means just what I choose it to mean – neither more nor less.”- “The question is,” said Alice, “whether you can make words mean so many different things.” – “The question is,” said Humpty Dumpty, “which is to be master – that’s all.”
