We have created a new application for Beko for whom we translate into more than 35 languages. Thanks to this software automation process in user manual preparation is improved and the rate of errors are reduced. The creation process of this application has started upon the demand from Beko that gives great importance to automation in multilingual user manual preparation process for Arçelik, Beko and Grundig products. This process has lasted around a year and was commissioned with full success on September 2014. This application which we named as Urban Link Manager allows the operator to prepare the multilingual version of the master English user manual just in a couple of minutes.
Urban Link Manager is an ideal solution for companies that prepare multilingual user manuals. This application runs on a database that consist of Adobe Incopy files. Desired language versions of the modular master user manual in Indesign are created automatically just in a couple of minutes. If there are any untranslated modules for any of the selected languages the application determines them and warns the operator to send those modules for translation. Dynamic variable data that are stored in Excel or XML formats in other environments are automatically updated in the relevant language versions.
