Gemino TermCloud is a web-based, browser-supported termbase and service for international or multilingual companies. As one of the solutions Gemino offers its clients, the software is a proprietary development and not for sale.
With TermCloud, any employee can look up specialist terms and required corporate terminology directly in their browser – hassle-free, and in all the relevant languages to your business. No training. No installation. No maintenance.
The system requires no investment on your part and you won’t incur any personnel or further training costs. It can be used without any dependencies, and you can choose to expand it at any time. You can choose between TermCloud Lookup (the starter package that’s free for our regular clients) and TermCloud Workflow (the expanded package including terminology management for an individual monthly fee).
TermCloud Lookup lets you trial a terminology database in your company at no extra cost. Without any long-term commitments or obligation to buy from us. Once you decide whether additional TermCloud services would be beneficial for your organisation, you can simply order the expanded package at a low monthly fee: TermCloud Workflow with approval workflow and term changes on your side.
Free of charge for our existing customers and available for the entire duration of our relationship.
Included in the package:
The small solution with a big impact on your terminology management.
With lookup function. With workflow. With professional terminology management service.
All at an individual monthly service fee, without any initial investment and without any in-house personnel or infrastructure charges. TermCloud Workflow has all the features of TermCloud Lookup.
In addition, it includes the following:
How do I spell that again? What’s the specific term here? And how do I say this in another language? Anyone involved in an organization’s communications, products and services should use the same specific terminology. After all, consistently applied corporate language has many benefits:
Inconsistent language leads to misunderstandings and may cause errors. Clear, product-related communication is a must, not least for legal reasons (product liability law). The consistent use of a termbase such as Gemino TermCloud significantly reduces this risk.
Systematic terminology management that is continually applied throughout the company can be a powerful tool to guarantee consistently high quality across all relevant languages. All employees involved in corporate communications should have easy access to the defined terminology. This requires personnel resources and a corresponding technical infrastructure.
Many major companies have a significant need for multilingual (technical) documentation. For them, terminology management by means of a termbase is a sensible, worthwhile investment. It also makes economic sense, as the costs are one-off and scalable. Uncertainty around terminology, on the other hand, can lead to repeated misunderstandings and unpredictable, sometimes expensive mistakes.
Most systems on the market are powerful but also expensive, difficult to implement and complex to use.
As well as being expensive to buy and maintain, they require an investment in training for all future users, too. Costs for full-time in-house terminologists or linguists, who continually manage the terminology for all relevant languages in the system, also need to be factored in.
Many companies shy away from introducing such a system, particularly because it is often difficult to analyze its profitability in advance.
Experience has shown that a small investment can already reap the benefits of a “major” terminology management system. Very often, a mere 20% of the expenditure leads to approximately 80% of the desired results.
The ideal way to introduce terminology management to your company is in small steps, with low costs for start-up and operation alike, and to have the option to use the database with one of the major systems at a later stage.
Gemino TermCloud allows you to do just that. Our language services include the use of our terminology management system, which can also be expanded to suit your individual requirements. Our system is open, allowing you to easily switch or link it to major systems by other providers.
The increasing degree of specialization across multiple divisions has a huge effect on the language used in the company. Ever more differentiated specialist terminologies emerge and are applied in complex product development processes. To ensure clear communication, a large number of users must be familiar with this language diversity.
Terminology management helps companies meet these requirements. It creates the foundation for unambiguous communication between various divisions, such as Research & Development, Production and Marketing, and between the company and its suppliers. Not least, correct and consistently applied terminology also enhances communication between companies, in the market and with end customers.
A profitability analysis is sure to demonstrate the financial justification for these efforts, as the associated costs are one-off and scalable. Uncertainty around terminology, on the other hand, can lead to repeated misunderstandings and, as a result, unpredictable and sometimes expensive mistakes.
