Project language management

CAT tools – Computer Assisted Translation tools – are now well-established; we’ve been working with them since 2005, currently employing the leading-edge Trados 2017. Used properly they improve quality and consistency and often lower costs for our clients, and we love them to bits.

However, these aren’t a solution by themselves; they’re tools, and like most tools are only as good as the user. Low-end providers can – and do – use them as machine translation, sucking-in source text and squirting out “translation” often little better than online “translators”. However, that is NOT what CAT tools are about.

Better providers use them to assist professionally-qualified and experienced human translators, using interactive glossary and translation memory to offer similar existing translation for the translator to revise while also helping with terminology.

Translation quality needs human translators – when CAT-proposed translation isn’t properly revised and reviewed the results are “clunky” (or plain wrong). Poor CAT tool use is usually  VERY obvious to the reader.

If you’d like CAT savings and consistency, WITH good translation from interested translators, you might like to talk to us.

Language people management

Language is about people, and our translators and interpreters are people we value highly so we look after them. By paying them decent rates, promptly, we attract the best linguists to work on your stuff.

Our translators and interpreters have given us one of the highest ratings on the translation industry’s Blue Book, encouraging the best in the industry to work with us; a few have even posted on our own Supplier Guest Book.

Language partner management

Product launches often leave translation until last, making this rushed and risking poor language which can harm your brand.

Involving a good translation partner early on allows them to advise on pitfalls such as document layout (key for right-to-left languages), the handling of figures & acronyms, and even product names – expensive re-branding because the product name in target markets is found amusing or offensive is surprisingly common.

Good partners also try to save you cost and time. They’ll leverage your previously-translated material, and work with you to streamline workflows and manage glossaries. The result is that your translations are polished and launch-ready.

Would you rather benefit from translation? Or just pay the minimum for it?
