The purpose of this disclosure is to reduce the number of untranslated words in the current process of standard document translations. It was aimed to shorten the translation lead time, which eventually will reduce the overall translation costs. The goal was achieved by our scheme of marking certain words in translation repository databases as 'translation completed'. Followings are the descriptions of this disclosure in light of the current translation support tools on Windows (i.e. TM and Trados). Note : TM is an IBM product, which is used to translate IBM standard documents. Other documents are translated using Trados, Trados Corp. product. 1
