Report tackles management of global content
In the “better late than never” category, the Localization Industry Standards Association issued the third Edition of its publication, Managing Global Content: Global Content Management and Global Translation Management Systems in late 2007.
This is a good guide for professionals wanting to understand how more about managing global content. From the basics of why use a content management system (CMS) and a (GTMS), to comparing some of the options, from ways to improve processes to looking at system requirements, this publication is packed full of useful information for both the seasoned professional changing technologies, and for the newbie looking to get started on the right foot.
I’m happy to have contributed in a brief way, discussing some considerations when choosing a CMS. This report is available, along with other Best Practice Guides, from the LISA site. The cost of the report is well worth the modest cost, considering the potential cost of even a “small” mistake during an implementation.
