The growing demand for personalized content requires quickly scaling operations to keep up with the continuous cycle of content delivery. For vendor managers, the increasing project volume increases the number of variables to be managed--projects, documents, vendor selection, rates, assignments, costs, deadlines, budgets--and scale only adds to the complexity.
Lingotek’s Vendor Management app was built to support large scale, multi-vendor management, making it easier to stay on top of your world. The app is available as an add-on to our industry-leading translation management system (TMS) and offers a level of integration and automation that enterprises and vendor managers need to quickly scale and efficiently manage their localization work.
Once the vendor profile is created, the process a vendor uses to accept work, create rate charts, and invoice jobs becomes automated and more efficient.
Using the convenient Vendor Management app, enterprises can

The Vendor Management app lets you quickly review rate charts and billing information within the TMS. You can sort and view the rate charts created by vendors and indicate whether the rate chart is used for general rates or for documents with specific metadata.
LSPs can provide in-system rate charts for the various translation services they offer and create invoice reports once their work is completed.
With the Vendor Management app, you can calculate costs directly within the TMS instead of maintaining the data on spreadsheets in separate systems. Integrating cost reports reduces these burdensome manual tasks and conveniently displays all of your costs from all of your vendors in a single location. Use cost reports to:
Invoice reports are designed to provide invoice data for documents completed for a specific client within a selected date range. These invoice reports may be used as line items in your invoicing system of choice, or simply as a referenced report number and total.
Lingotek's translation workbench is the most powerful and easy-to-use online translation editor available today. LSPs appreciate having all of their resources at their fingertips -- from translation memories and glossaries to machine translation, formatting, and community voting. Many find Lingotek’s interface to be more user friendly than other platforms they have worked with.
With easy, customizable workflows, project managers can automate the creation of new translation projects. Use Lingotek’s pre-made workflows or build your own. You can pre-select languages, pre-assign translators, and add commonly-used settings to create your unique workflow. Our simple, intuitive, drag-and-drop selection process makes it easy for you to create and automate projects to your exact specifications.
Lingotek allows multiple vendors to work on the same project at the same time in the Translation Network. It allows lets your international marketing managers who work remotely from company headquarters to translate and collaborate on projects in real time. With your preferred LSPs working in our powerful, cloud-based translation management system, you get continuous, round the clock translation and real-time collaboration. Lingotek also provides real-time chat and segment-specific notes for instant collaboration. This creates a unique ecosystem that allows full-scale, real-time collaboration between teams.
Convenient access to multiple translation memory vaults and glossaries stored in the cloud can be immediately leveraged by other translators. They don’t need to manually upload and download TM databases or merge disparate TM files after the project is finished. Because we let you maintain control of all of your assets--including glossaries, terminologies, and translation memory--you can ensure your company’s brand and messaging consistency. You don’t have to be stuck with a single vendor’s machine translation (MT) platform. With Lingotek, you can choose a platform that is best for each particular language and particular project.
Lingotek’s powerful ICR application changes the way companies create and distribute content to a global audience. By immersing translators in a dynamic, visual experience, we’ve brought translation, formatting, and review together in real time, in real view, and in one place. It is the only ICR tool in the industry to give translators the ability to preview the page as they translate to see the layout in real time. Translations are automatically merged back into your enterprise application to allow the content to be reviewed in context.
Companies can rely on the safety of Lingotek’s comprehensive data security protocol with user management that can include multi-tier permission groups. When creating a new project, the project manager can choose who to share the project with. Role-based authorization ensures that users only see information if they have been granted access by the project administrator. They can even make it possible for each user to remain anonymous, if desired.
