Why join

Why Join

  • Pooling data, pooling investments

    • Individually, companies do not have sufficient language data and funding to significantly upgrade efficiency and performance of translation activities.

    • TDA puts an end to a fragmented market place.

  • Increase productivity

    • Leveraging larger volumes of shared industry data helps companies to increase productivity.

    • In-domain MT engines can increase productivity by 50% or more.

    • Pay-back period on member fees is very short, even in case of small translation budgets.

  • Seize new business opportunities

    • Vendors of translation services and technologies can improve their technologies and solutions and develop new value-added services and specialization.

    • Buyers of translation can use existing translations to enter new locales more rapidly.

  • Improve quality

    • Transparency of language data helps to improve the translation quality and consistency of terminology.

  • Collaborate and innovate

    • Collaboration in TDA industry groups helps companies to establish a highly efficient translation operating system and stimulate localization business innovation.


  • Tda member pilot projects

    TDA Member Pilot Projects

    • Advanced – rerun of CTS study

      • 75-100% matches – approx. 30% of segments in a zero assets scenario

    • Advanced – weighted word count approach leveraging against the same data set used for the CTS study

      • Average 35% reduction in weighted word count in zero assets scenario

      • Average 50% reduction in weighted word count in limited assets scenario

      • NB: translators have not checked usefulness of matches
