The translation process

The translation process is easily handled in AFRY Zert CLM.

When you have completed a publication, with new or already existing content, you choose what languages you would like it to be translated into and forward it for translation. AFRY Zert CLM will automatically sense what is not already translated, collect it in a XLIFF file and send it on to a translator.

When the content then has been translated the translator will feed it into the system via the CLM web portal. Here you will be given the opportunity to review the content, before you choose either to send it back for translation or import into the system.

Features Arrow pointing right

Overview - some of the most important features

The user interface makes it easy to get started with CLM. The system constantly helps with both spelling and terminology and ensures that you follow the guidelines defined by your company.

The following demonstrates how the user performs some of the important functions:

  • Alias
  • Reuse and phrase suggestions
  • Examination
  • Publishing filter
hero 3


Alias works in a similar way as cross-references, that you insert a space in your text which is then replaced with a value depending on where this text is located. The idea is that this should be able to be used in e.g. sections with error codes, information on how to acknowledge information in a control system, etc.

The alias is not something that will be translated or sent in the translation assignments, so it is mainly suitable for numbers, names, designations, codes, etc. that are not language-unique.

Reuse and Phrase Suggestions

When writing text, text suggestions that are reusable can be displayed. The text matching box shows the number of translations for each suggestion and how many times the text has been reused.

Of course, it is possible to both create new texts and reuse existing texts directly from the keyboard via keyboard shortcuts. Not only that! Also whole chapters, topics or tables etc. can be reused and given as suggestions in the creation of these.


It is important to receive feedback on your content in order to produce as perfect instructions as possible.
It should be easy to request, receive and give comments, no matter who is handle them – a colleague within the same field or a person with specialist knowledge.

In AFRY Zert CLM the author may choose what content to be reviewed, who is to review it and how long it is to be available for review.
The chosen reviewers will then get the opportunity to comment on the content, and the author may at the same time have the opportunity to respond to comments in case of uncertainties.

Publishing filter

Publishing filter is an add-on module for filtering content in a publication according to its own predefined values.

Common types of values in publishing filters are different brands, different markets or regions, or different types of publications. By using the publication filter, you can collect all information in the same publication instead of creating a publication for ex. each brand.
