Overview

When you have content which requires translating, in order to implement your translation workflow it is often necessary to prepare the files prior to being processed. This if often the case when using Computer-Assisted Translation (CAT) tools.

A localisation engineer, or your dedicated project manager, will prepare the files in a suitable fashion to make the translation workflow smoother. This could include locking tags and script in .html files, preparing a MS Word document to allow text boxes and tables easy to process, or generating a DTP-friendly version of your file for a later stage in the process.

By correctly preparing the files, our engineers are minimising the risk of there being potential issues or errors later in the translation workflow.

Quality process

The process begins by completing a briefing questionnaire to clarify your objectives. This briefing will be visible to all the team members involved with delivering the service and is the foundation for all our quality checks.

Either a member of our engineering team or your dedicated project manager will assess the source files which you have made available to us and decide if they need to be prepared in a specific way in order to be processed correctly during the translation workflow.

Preparation will be carried out using the relevant tools required by your workflow and, once the translation has been completed, will then pass through a post-processing process in order to present the translated content in the original format, ready for delivery.

Depending on the requirements of your project and/or complexity of your files you may also incur a charge for the post-processing stage of the project.
