It’s just a few short weeks now until the 2017 tekom conference gets underway again in Stuttgart. Before getting to meet you face to face at the conference, we wanted to use the next few posts to take a look at the world of the forthcoming 2018 version of SCHEMA ST4. So, let’s dive in and discover the new features aimed primarily at making your workflows and processes easier.

In the process earlier translations in the system are searched through and suggested, when a certain amount of matches is found – the main principle of a TMS.
