As usual, we were able to rely on you entirely. When it comes to producing our brochures and the time frames associated with this, that’s critical both for us and our agency, and for this I’m genuinely grateful! Please do pass on my thanks to everyone involved. Thank you so much for the excellent teamwork.
Any system, any file format. Schmieder saves you the hassle of having to copy and paste your texts. Whether from your PIM system, a piece of software, an e-learning tool, your shop system or directly from your CMS – no matter from which piece of software or in which format you send us your texts, we will adapt our interfaces to your requirements and file formats. As we collate all of your company’s texts in our translation memory system, we can ensure a consistent brand identity across all languages, countries and file formats. We can also return all of your translations back to you in whichever format you prefer quickly and without any hassle.

What our clients have to say.
Schmieder is our partner for all manner of high-quality publications, catalogues, brochures and reports. Thanks to the way they process the files, Schmieder delivers the finished translations in the original format, which saves us a lot of unnecessary work. This enables us all to save time and resources, and to focus on the quality of the end products instead.
TermPortal and MultiSearch are the perfect complement to our day-to-day work. With a single click, more than 2300 colleagues (worldwide) can find the right translations. Whether it’s a single word, entire sentences or even complete documents, the results comply with our corporate language.
Translating our media and finding the right tone of voice for our texts in the various languages is a real challenge. It’s something that can only be done by native professionals who are experts in the caravan industry, and who also have an eye for corporate language, whatever the language. We’re glad to have found a partner in Schmieder Translations who satisfies all of these requirements in every way. What’s more, they’re on hand to provide advice and support relating to anything to do with the TMS and interface adaptation. We have no reservations recommending our partner to others!
We’ve been working together for over 20 years and have undergone many changes and processes in that time, but Schmieder has always been on our side providing us with help and advice and top-quality translations – and always with a smile.
Schmieder strikes the right note in every country, whether it’s a modern motorhome or a cosy caravan. As a result, updating our catalogues and websites in up to 10 languages every year has become a professional partnership – built for life.
Schmieder takes a lot of work off our shoulders. For the translation of our technical drawings, they developed a customised process with adaptive user interfaces. This has allowed us to make huge cost savings and we also receive the translation ready for printing. This is just perfect for us.
Got a question? We have the answer.
- How do we exchange data for my Russian website?
If your content management system has an export function, you can send us the file that is generated for translation into Russian. These are usually XLF or XML files. We will process these directly using our translation memory system and input the translation. Then, all you need to do is to import the file and your website will be displayed in Russian.
- Is a translation agency more suitable than a translator?
A professional language service provider can provide you with native speakers for every single language combination, connect the translation memory system with your systems, offer you online access to your company glossary and provide your team of core translators with training in all of the aspects that make your company unique. This is not something that can be offered by a single person.
- We have a company glossary – can you use it?
We can import your existing terminology and make sure that it is used in each and every project. Our database shows our professional translators every time a term appears, and compliance is checked in our quality assurance process.
- What do I need to bear in mind when it comes to catalogue translations?
Your language service provider must be a competent user of Adobe InDesign. This will minimise any possible issues for you and the advertising agency. At the same time, having the right translators is essential – different experts are required for a new motorhome than for cable assemblies.
- Which format does the text have to be in?
Ideally, send us the text to be translated in an editable format – it can be Word, Excel, PowerPoint, IDML or XML/XLIFF. This will enable us to translate your original document directly without requiring any tedious copying and pasting on your part. By the way, if you don’t have an editable file to hand, we will be happy to create one for you.
