Marketing Text The DISCO online translation tool is used to collect all translations of DISCO I terms and DISCO II extraction phrases in one single database. This database will provide the basis to fill the DISCO II website with multilingual content.
Description The DISCO online translation tool enables partners to add their translations of preferred terms, the addition of non-preferred terms and term definitions. As soon as new terms are added in the English language version this term is highlighted in other language versions to signal the project partner that this term has to be translated and synonyms/non-preferred terms have to be added. In a second step the software will be updated to support as well the translation of the extracted phrases from English into other languages.

3s has tested the application before it was offered to the project partners.
3s installed test cases, specified additionally necessary functions, reported bugs and checked bug fixes.
Usability was key for the conception of the DISCO online translation tool. Nevertheless it turned out that the initial filling of a new language version (= add new translations of the existing thesaurus) takes quite a lot of clicks when done manually. Therefore we provided an automated update for the import of new language translations via Excel spreadsheet import into Multithes. However the correction of existing translations and the addition of some new terms in the existing DISCO languages was and shall be done directly in the DISCO online translation tool.
Reported bugs were fixed after evaluation and some new functionalities and improvements with regard to usability were done.
