Black & Decker Tooling

Black & Decker is a global marketer and manufacturer of quality products used in and around the home and publishes approx. 100 new manuals each year in up to 24 languages.

Etteplan created all Black & Decker manuals applying XML structure to minimize translation cost and time-to-market while optimizing consistency and facilitating version management. As a result, the amount of re-use has been 90% or better, which resulted in cost savings of up to 90% on translations. Furthermore, the time to market was decreased by 80%.
