Professor Uwe Muegge publishes article in tcworld

Uwe Muegge, Chair of the Translation and Localization Management Program, had an article published in tcworld, one of the most widely-read e-magazines for international information management. tcworld focuses on how companies face the challenges of communicating with customers, partners and associates in an increasing number of international markets.

In his article titled “TermWiki: Terminology Management Just Got Easier“, professor Muegge discusses the drawbacks of traditional terminology management in Excel spreadsheets and then goes on to introduce his readers to the benefits of the cloud-based terminology management solution TermWiki.

The latest release of this completely free solution allows users to manage personal glossaries, offers a terminology workbench for entering up to ten terms at a time, and comes with its own browser toolbar that provides even faster access to TermWiki’s most popular features. Professor Muegge continues to contribute to the development of TermWiki, which is not only one of the most innovative but also one of the fastest-growing terminology resources on the web, quickly approaching 1 million fully defined and categorized terms.
