Effective, efficient terminology management can make the difference between success and failure when introducing a product or service in a foreign market.

Terminology management is the activity of systematically collecting, processing, and presenting words that have special meaning in a given subject field with emphasis on the word systematically.

The goal of any terminology management effort is to ensure that the words that are most closely associated with a given organization's products, services, and branding are used consistently in the source language and in all the languages into which the various types of documents the organization generates are translated into.
