Move Legacy Content to XML

You are moving towards XML but there is so much legacy content? c-rex.net DTS is the breakdown service which helps you on this lonely road.

It doesn't matter which XML flavor you decided for - c-rex.net DTS gets the very best out of your lecacy content, with its automated information type recognition.

We analyse content and formats to reduce costs of the manual finishing process to the furthest extent possible. A big standard rule set reduces work to setup the process.

As all legacy content is different, enhancements of the standard rule set is possible in any step of the conversion pipeline.

Every conversion process delivers conversion logs, comments in a target XML file and, if required, a Word document output to get a quick overview of the conversion quality.

c-rex.net Translation Engine
Say Goodbye to: Complex Translation Processes

c-rex.net DTS

Standardize your Translation Processes

XLIFF is the standard for data exchange with Translation Memory Systems. c-rex.net DTS converts input to XLIFF and back without data loss.

All transformation is done according to ITS standard rules. If you are using some specific formats, you can provide your ITS 2.0 rule set, enrich XML documents with ITS information or we can do the mapping for you.

 

Even more important, especially in translation processes, is to connect to other systems like translation memory and project management systems. Make the use of c-rex.net DTS's customizable and powerful workflow engine. Get in touch if you are interested in an integration of your system or the tools of your LSP.

Rising weakness of TMS filters

Established systems in general do a good job importing data formats for translation. However, they cannot cover all eventualitites, of course. Custom XML tags in Word 2003 documents are just one example.

Here is where c-rex.net DTS comes in, aimed to cover these special cases. Let us know what your troubles are when using standard filters. We'll try our best to find a solution and implement a standard conversion scenario, if possible.

Integrate Machine Translation

Day by day Machine Translation is getting better and better. Integration of such services makes sense. Pretranslate your content with Google or Bing, and deliver a bilingual XLIFF to your translators for post-editing.

Some content doesn't need professional translation such as management reports, protocols, drafts and others.

XLIFF 1.2

All content is transformed to XLIFF 1.2 and can be used in any TMS which supports XLIFF 1.2. Afterwards, the translation content is transformed back to the original format automatically!

ITS 2.0 Support

XLIFF 2.0

XLIFF 2.0 and segmentation is on our road map for the near future. Stay tuned. Let us know about your requirements. We are at your disposal.
