“BAUR saved more than 68% over old processes using the memoQ server technology”
Localization Expert at BAUR

The Austrian company BAUR Prüf- und Messtechnik GmbH is a worldwide leader in high voltage testing and measurement. BAUR started localization in 2006, localized into 17 languages in 2007 and extends localization to 22 languages in 2008. The company adopted memoQ and – working together with the internal development department – established processes that yielded a saving of 68% on localization.

BAUR’s System and Localization Needs

BAUR uses CMS including Typo3 and AuthorIT. The firmware of the software uses a proprietary format for localization. The company used to subcontract all its translation to a multilingual localization vendor, but the generation of the final document happened at BAUR.

BAUR centralized its translation assets in server-based translation memory and term base, and introduced memoQ in their translation workflow.
