The program's principle function is to help translation agencies organize and manage their work with clients and translators. Unlike other translation management software that is tied to a physical location, Vitroff is a cloud-based system. You can access your information anywhere in the world where there is an Internet connection. In addition, the distribution has the advantages of a standard site with Vitroff's integrated rates and order forms.
Vitroff does not need stand-alone servers or expensive commercial operating systems like MS Windows Server or MS SQL server. The system requirements are low and can be handled by most hosting providers. The boxed version can be installed and configured on your local network in less than a day or you can order the hosted version and start working with the system within an hour of its activation.
