Our Technical Translation Process


Initial Assessment and Consultation

A meeting is set up with our team to ensure we fully understand your requirements. We’ll walk through the project workflow, assuring every step is understood, making changes as appropriate to ensure that we meet all of your requirements. This includes incorporating technologies such as linguistic AI optionally in the workflow. As a member of the team you’ll have complete visibility into the entire process every step along the way.


Assignment to Specialized Translators

We’ll put together a team of expert linguists who are experienced in your subject domain, along with a dedicated project manager. The team assigned to your project will have the necessary expertise to understand your content and render it confidently in the target language(s).


Glossary and Terminology Management

Delivering technical translations not only requires that the content be accurately conveyed and understandable for your target audience, but that specific industry terms and concepts be correctly and consistently rendered as well. We ensure consistent, accurate results through unified terminology management across all content in your project.


Translation Process

Your content is translated either by our team of subject-matter linguists or by linguistic AI, according to the best solution that meets your cost, quality and turnaround requirements. If linguistic AI is used, our expert linguists will still be an integral part of the review, editing and quality assurance step. Best-in-class translation productivity tools such as translation memory are also used during this step.


Review, Editing and Quality Assurance

Our subject-matter linguists are responsible for reviewing the translation and ensuring that it is rendered accurately and understandably for the technical end-users who are consuming the content. Our automated QA tools are used as an integral part of the workflow during this step to ensure a high degree of compliance and terminological consistency in the final translation.


Client Collaboration and Feedback

Our agile-based workflow means you have complete visibility and transparency into the workflow as it proceeds. Collaboration is encouraged, and updates and changes are handled quickly. We’re committed to ensuring that you’re satisfied with the end product and appreciate any feedback you may have.
