Advice

As your organisation continues to grow and becomes more active on an international scale, the need for a professional translation process will also continue to grow. By using our knowledge and experience, you will gain more insight into the best practices and the best tools to effectively organise your growing stream of multilingual texts. We can help you realise a higher quality with shorter lead times and lower costs.

A professional translation process

The key to international success is communicating in your client’s language. The more your company grows, the more languages and content will have to be translated. The good organisation of this data flow will ensure that you are in control of both the quality and the completeness of your content.

You can leave your professional translation processes up to external partiesor you can choose to arrange them within your company. LinQuake can be of service, if you want to set up an effective translation department within your company. We can introduce you to the world of professional translation, and together we will look at subjects such as:

  • Most efficient translation process for your organisation
  • Required human resources
  • Available technology to support the translation process
  • Quality control
  • Use and reuse of data

In our advisory role, we will provide you with an effective translation process. You can achieve the desired quality of your content with the shortest lead times and the minimal effort for your organisation. This will provide you with the following:

  • Shorter time-to-market
  • Better internal and external communication
  • Higher level of customer satisfaction
  • Cost savings on translations
  • Satisfied employees
  • Consistency in all your expressions

Professional translation tools

The translation industry is one of the fastest growing markets worldwide. With a turnover of 40 billion dollars in 2016, it will grow by 7% each year at the current rate. There are also a lot of developments occurring within the industry, making it a very innovative domain. We keep close track of these developments, and make sure that the newest insights and solutions are available to our clients. Examples of solutions include:

  • Couplings with your CMS, PIM or ERP system
  • Translation of different file types
  • Machine translations
  • Translation memories
  • Terminology management
  • Quality Assurance tools

During the advisory process, we will work together to find the most suitable tools for your organisation.

Human resources

Even though we now have access to magnificent technology to create a professional translation process, human linguists remain indispensable. You need qualified people to translate, but also to manage the technology, to convert files for translation, to perform quality checks and to take care of publications.

LinQuake will help you to map out which functions are necessary in your translation process. We can describe the necessary job profiles and we can help you with the process of recruitment and selection. We can also provide training for your employees, in cases where you will be working with specific CAT tools.

Quality and quality control

One of the most important aspects of a professional translation process is getting a grip on the quality of your content. As far as we are concerned, that quality is a result of customisation that fits with the needs of every text. This can mean that your text should be translated according to the ISO 17100 certification; however, for other texts, it can also mean that a machine translation is sufficient.

We will map the desired quality levels with you, and think along with you about other elements that contribute to the desired quality, such as:

  • Human resources
  • Quality Assurance (QA) tools
  • Proofreading, internally and/or externally
  • Processing feedback
  • Construction and application of branch terminology and technical terminology

The result of our guidance is quality control. In this way, you will consciously make decisions about the desired quality and will organise the translation process in a way so that you can operate and monitor it.

Use and reuse of data

Who hasn’t tried out Google Translate? Google Translate is the ultimate example of what can be accomplished by using data and machine learning in the world of professional translation. However, it’s not the only tool that can accelerate a professional translation process and save costs, by using translation data in a smart way.

Google Translate is an example of a generic translation machine that creates a machine translation by training itself with very diverse content. If your organisation has high quality translated content, you can also use this specific data to train a translation machine, and thereby obtain better results.

LinQuake can help you with this solution, yet also offers simpler solutions; for example, the application of translation memories. With these translation memories, you can realise substantial savings and quality improvements in no time.
