TISLOG speaks over 100 languages
Bocholt, April 28, 2020
There is now good news for companies with foreign-language employees, for whom it would be easier to handle and would avoid misunderstandings if they could process orders in their own language. Since early 2020, TISLOG logistics software is offering greatly expanded foreign language options.
So far, the standard languages German and English could be used. Text modules were also available in several other languages.
For the immediate output of user interfaces and written communication in over 100 languages, the two AI language services Deepl and Google Translator have now been connected via an interface. The two tools are among the most powerful automatic translators currently available, and their intelligent learning algorithms ensure that translations are as native and grammatically correct as possible.
Deepl is used for the languages English, French, Spanish, Italian, Dutch, Polish, Portuguese, Russian, Japanese and Chinese (Mandarin), translations into over 100 other languages are offered by Google Translate: https://translate.google.com/intl/de/about/languages/).
Thanks to the integration of automatic translations, all TISLOG customers can now choose from well over 100 languages for their drivers' mobile devices.
Order management and communication with headquarters in your drivers' own mother tongue
Drivers can set the language themselves. The user interface of the TISLOG app and status texts are then displayed in the selected language. The driver's language setting also affects the driver mail system. For example, if the dispatcher writes an email in German, it is automatically translated and displayed in the "driver language". The same applies of course to the opposite direction.

Signature dialog in the language of the signee
A practical function for deliveries to foreign-language recipients is the adjustability of the signature dialog to the language of the receipt giver. If you turn the screen in signature mode, this setting changes the language for signees, e.g. from the driver's language into their own.
Language settings in the headquarters
In TISLOG office, the automated translation can be started very easily with just one click and the "preferred language" can be saved for each driver in the resource manager. After registering in the app, the driver is then automatically offered "his language". After confirmation, the app changes to the respective language. If the driver selects a different language, this is automatically updated in the resource manager. The language setting remains saved in the driver app, so the driver only has to confirm once.
In addition to the translation available in real time thanks to the integrated tools, TISLOG office also offers the option of manually entering translations during operation simply by clicking on text modules. Already completed translations are color-coded and thus easy to recognize. If a complete translation file of the corresponding language is available, it can also be added via file import.
If you want to share your translations within the community, you have the option of making them automatically available to all TISLOG users via the TISLOG server. In this way, the translation effort within the community divides among a large number of participants and everyone benefits from the result.
The new expanded language functionality is available free of charge for TIS customers. If you have any questions or suggestions, please do not hesitate to contact our sales team.
