Post customer specific terms in one language
Hi.
I am translating our software GUI for different customers. The language for some of the customers is the same but the customers use different terminology - one customer names a GUI field "A", another calls the same field "B". Is there a possibility to deal with this, e.g. some kind of versioning...? I am thinking of a parent language/"main version" which automatically passes all translated texts to its child languages/"versions" - and the child languages can be changed without changing the parent language. BUT, if a parent language text is changed then the child language will be changed automatically! This means, I have to translate once and afterwards change only the customer specific terms.
Or is there another way, e.g. using the translation memory?

Thanks,
Tim

Hello.

What edition of localizer do you use?
If you have Enterprise edition, then maybe brands will be helpful.
You can create brand for each customer and operate with "brand-language" pairs space instead of language only.

Hello Dirk,

I think you should try to use branding. I was created for similar situations.

Best Regards,
Michael
