Technical glossary of translation terms

Occasionally, you’ll come across some unfamiliar terms on the intercontact website or when talking to people in the localisation and translation industry. You’ll find many of these terms listed here with short explanations.

Plug-in

A plug-in helps expand the functions of a software program. It is an add-on that enables the user to customise the applications and functions themselves to meet their particular needs. In a translation program, for example, a dictionary plug-in is a useful addition that helps to optimise translations.
