SAP – Translation and localization services for strategic SAP partner solutions (English-French)

An essential step when translating the REACH compliance solution for the chemical industry, developed by SAP and TechniData, is terminology management. Testing the localized software texts is also an important aspect of the project. The solution should integrate seamlessly into the existing SAP Environment, Health & Safety (SAP EHS) application as an extension. To do that, you need to have the relevant technical expertise and specific knowledge.

What did our customer need?

  • Translations from English into French directly in the SAP partner’s online translation system
  • Translation of SAP REACH Compliance before integration into the SAP solution portfolio
  • Project management

How did we do it?

  • We defined the translation of technical terminology in French.
  • We collaborated with experts from TechniData AG to extend and adapt SAP standard terminology.
  • We translated the solution developed in ABAP and Java – including the online help.
  • We worked closely with the relevant parties to improve the quality of the English and German versions.
  • We tested localized software texts to ensure the same terminology was used for all interface elements.

Special features

  • Successful outsourcing of this internal SAP task to an external service provider to relieve SAP Language Services employees.
  • Providing additional information and training to the translation team on the somewhat complex aspects of European chemicals law.

Benefits for the customer

  • They saved time and minimized risk: They didn’t have to waste lots of time looking for a professional English to French translation partner. Linder & Tanguy was recommended directly by Business Partner Management @ SAP Language Services.
  • Cost reduction: The Linder & Tanguy team was ready to start on the project straight away. There were no additional training costs (the translation tools and testing process as well as the definition and translation of new terms in the areas of Product, Chemical, Environmental and Health & Safety Compliance were familiar territory).
  • Top-quality result for the REACH compliance solution in French despite the tight schedule for terminology management, translation, and testing.
