At SpanTech Translations we have the capacity to take on high-volume multilingual translation projects and a novel approach that allows us to trim down the budget even as we deliver unfailing quality in record time.
Going beyond translation memories and translation units, we achieve a benchmark of uniformity by performing a human analysis, not just a machine analysis, of related documents. We identify boilerplate text that is often missed by CAT tools and handle it separately, creating a standard from the beginning, and avoiding duplication of effort.
Our tight-knit multilingual team communicates on any given project in real time from beginning to end, ensuring unity in terminology and style. Our translators and editors work concurrently, putting an early end to any doubts or errors long before they reach the final review stage, and shortening our turnaround time significantly.
Whenever possible, we work within the file type of the source document, reducing or eliminating the need for DTP work after the translation is done. If only pdf files can be supplied, we either transcribe or extract the text and clean it up before translation so memories can be created with the translation units segmented in a natural way, not forced by manual line breaks and odd text boxes as with most extracted text. We are able to deliver perfectly formatted Word documents, complete with real headers, footers, generated TOCs and Indexes, even when the source files are pdf. We can Photoshop graphics right into documents. What you receive is a finished product.
These processes allow for a more coherent, higher quality product to be delivered within a shorter timeframe and more modest budget. In the end, we save you time and money, and you walk away with a better quality document, ready for publication.
Mission Statement: SpanTech Translations delivers consistent quality and affordability in large-scale translation projects.
