  • ECM: departmental level champions push upstream Significant pattern when you look at the value of content across these two industries

  • Describe the GCVC. Emphasize that it’s a strategy. It emerges over time, starting with points of initial pain. The business case doesn’t have to be for the chain – the business case can be incremental, focused on those initial pain points. Read more about the GCVC in the study. We talk about it in the webinar because you may hear the term used in discussing the results of the research, which describe where companies are today in thinking about and implementing global content value chains.

  • there is a particular point at which an organization commits to a true realization, resourcing, and execution of an aligned GCVC. We call this the “tipping point” or “point of no return” that compels organizations to identify, formalize, fund, and holistically manage GCVC components. This belief begs the question, “What do you believe to be the ‘point of no return’ or ‘tipping point’ at which your company determines that multilingual communications is a higher priority level?” we noticed two patterns – one, that tipping points are either proactive or reactive (the latter posing more significant risk to corporate success,) and two, that viewed “in reverse,” most tipping points can serve as strategy rather than as crisis. For example, respondents told us that increasing sales in specific countries would be considered a top-line objective. Some noted that marketing and sales executives are aware that localized content is a “gateway” for market entry in certain geographies such as Brazil and China. However, they also noted that it is generally the province of regional organizations to make a compelling business case for localization and translation processes in order to prove their worth. In many instances the case is based on customer dissatisfaction with a lack of product and/or brand content available in their local language even though actual products are readily available.

  • For those of you who may be unfamiliar with the Gilbane Group, we are an analyst and consulting firm focused on content technologies and their successful application to high value business solutions. Our coverage spans the range of technologies that companies use to create, manage, and deliver content, including authoring tools, content globalization and translation, document and web content management, search and information access, collaboration, and social computing technologies. At our core, we take a community approach to our business and deliver our knowledge and expertise through our information portal at www.gilbane.com, our consulting services, our conferences, and of course through educational events such as today’s webinar. As the Lead Analyst for the Globalization Practice and a former technical writer for 12 years, I place special emphasis on today’s pressures for content creators to manage a global content lifecycle, wherein its not just about create, manage, publish anymore with translation and localization processes relegated to a small black box on the bottom of the process model. Successful organization understand that globalization is a strategic business practice that extends into customer experience and brand management strategies, inevitably impacting far more than the act of translating content. I know more than a few champions inside technical documentation and marketing departments struggling to raise the visibility of not only product support content itself, but the need to manage source and translated content as a strategic asset. I still consider myself part of that community and encourage you to join the conversation on our Globalization Practice blog.

  • Educating the Organization “ Communication across a wide range of disparate communities requires education – producing multilingual communications is usually a ‘hidden’ process. We know from operational champions that it is possible to launch an educational initiative, invite cross-departmental representatives and nobody comes. However, it is important to keep trying; when key stakeholders participate in educational efforts, a shared understanding of goals is bound to emerge .” - Multilingual Communications as a Business Imperative http://gilbane.com
