    Convenience of Multilingual Manual Production

    The development of multilingual manuals entails an elaborate process that goes far beyond mere translation. This process takes the specific regulations of individual countries and regions into account, as well as the need to use culturally appropriate images and adhere strictly to a product release schedule.

    Above all, we possess advanced publishing technology and data conversion technology that support various languages and media. This is incredibly important when localizing manuals in mobile web format.

    Effective Reuse of Content

    When developing manuals for mass-produced products with multiple variants and models, it’s necessary both to maintain consistency and to follow a time- and cost-efficient process. Therefore, we reuse content and standardize all our data management and work processes.

    At Hansem Global, we use a standard sentence management system to prevent the same information from being expressed differently across multiple versions of the manual.
