The folks at CSOFT would like to present you with an opportunity to win a free iPad. It’s really easy. In fact, it’s a competition among linguists, writers and terminologists worldwide, so your chances of winning are directly related to just how much you want to win.

As you may know, CSOFT recently released the localization industry’s first collaborative & multilingual terminology management system called TermWiki. What you might not know, however, is that the free online community edition of TermWiki is currently available for public use at www.TermWiki.com. We understand that, as freelance linguists, it’s not always feasible to go out and splurge on the latest technological solutions in the localization industry. At the same time, however, your clients still require from you a certain degree of quality that, to an extent, is reliant on your use of these tools!

That’s why we would like to invite you to take this opportunity to try out TermWiki, the new approach to terminology management—made easy. By adding terms to TermWiki, you might just win a new iPad.

How the iPad Contest Works

After registering for a free TermWiki account, not only will you have instant access to TermWiki's termbase, you are also immediately eligible for the competition. Basically, the user who either enters or uploads the greatest number of qualified terms into TermWiki is the winner. The duration of the contest is from May 11th, 2010, to June 30th, 2010, and you can upload as many terms as you like during this period. Please note that all entries are subject to the Terms of Use on www.TermWiki.com

For participants with existing termbases, TermWiki supports the upload of Excel, TMX, TBX, and Multiterm files. It takes just a few minutes, and you could be well on your way to claiming a great prize.

Why you should participate

In addition to potentially winning an iPad, you will automatically qualify to download three times the amount of terms that you have contributed to the site. The goal of TermWiki is to provide you with a platform in which you can share terminology-related knowledge and translations with other linguists and localization professionals around the world.

TermWiki supports a variety of import and export functions for optimum compatibility with existing systems. You can export terms in the file format that suits you best, and then integrate the termbase with the translation memory or content management system of your choice.

The better the quality of data in TermWiki, the more useful it is for you.

Looking forward to a great competition,
The CSOFT Team
