Carmaker Renault has used translation technology to convert its product documents into 23 different languages to support its expanding global car dealership network.
Using technology from global information management specialist, SDL, the French car manufacturer has translated technical and service information into local languages for many of its overseas dealers.
SDL Knowledge-based Translation System has been used for the automated translation with the process being managed by SDL's Translation Management System.
Peyman Kargar, vice president of engineering, repair and warranty at Renault Service, said the project was part of the company's aims to become more competitive.
He says: "Our mission is to be in the top three by the end 2009 in terms of product quality but also service quality in the dealership. The ambition is in terms of quality of service but also the internationalization."
