We have created glossaries and TMs for each client, in order to ensure consistency of terms and same terminology for different projects. In addition, we use TMs provided by the General Directorate for Translations of the European Commission.

Translators

We have in-house translators and editors certified, for the following languages: English, French, Spanish, German, and Italian.

The candidates for an in-house position in our company have all graduated from the Faculty of Letters, specialized in the foreign language he/she translates from/into. We are focusing on their progress and ability to become real professionals and provide high-quality services. Throughout the years, we have implemented several test and evaluation methods, according to which we have been able to keep the best translators, the most experienced of them being in charge with proofreading and editing.

In addition, for other languages, we currently work with over 250 off-site translators, selected on the basis of rigorous tests.

Each external translator is evaluated by one of our in-house proofreaders, who proofreads the document translated by the collaborator, and fills in a Freelancer Evaluation Sheet, which includes several evaluation criteria, such as grammar, terminology, overall translation skills, comprehension of the source text, etc. The proofreader also provides a feedback and decides whether the collaboration with the external linguist shall be continued or not.

Quality management

We make sure that our translations meet high quality standards, and a detailed work procedure is implemented for this purpose. The translation workflow since the project is awarded to us to the moment we deliver it follows the following guidelines:

1. The project manager evaluates the project, identifies the field and appoints the most

Suitable translator(s)

2. The translator performs a detailed analysis of the text

3. Identification of the field (if he/she has dealt with this type of texts)

4. Consultation of TMs/glossaries; if it is a new field

5. Performs research on similar articles, gets information on the subject

6. The translator performs the translation

7. When the translation is complete, it is sent to an editor, who makes sure that the correct terminology is used

8. Next, the translation is sent to a proofreader, who checks it for grammar, syntax and spelling errors

9. The translation is sent to a final reviewer who makes sure that now the translation project is complete

10. The translation gets to the project manager, who sends it to the client.

 

We always ask our clients to send feedback, in order to improve our services in the future. We can provide you with a daily turnaround of 20,000 words or more!
