Process / workflow description

Your documents in expert hands
A legal contract, a leaflet for a pharmaceutical product, a patent, a corporate brochure, a suite of manuals for industrial plant. These are all documents with a highly specialist content and where product liability is a major issue, too.

Each area of industry and business life has its own specialist language and terminology. Faithfully transferring specialist content into another language is the work of an expert.

Good reasons why Arancho Doc only works with translators who are subject specialists and why we consult with industry professionals wherever necessary. A purpose-designed quality control system monitors progress through every step of the translation process.

Making your product truly accessible,
from every corner of the globe


We offer a complete localization service for:


* Static and dynamic web sites
* On-line help and tutorials
* User interfaces
* Screen captures, graphics, call outs
* Multi-media components – audio and video clips, animation, graphics, interactive functions
* E-training and other tie-in applications
* Marketing materials and other collaterals


Internet now reaches practically every corner of the globe. Computers, software, web pages and multi-media applications have become part and parcel of our daily lives. Unfortunately, the quality of what we read on-screen very often does not do justice to the true quality of the product we are using. Ineffective communication at this level annoys the user, reduces product utility and, at worst, will lose you customers. At Ic.Doc we have the experience and expertise to help you communicate effectively.

Our team of IT engineers, web designers and language professionals will do everything for you.

We cover the entire localization cycle from source files right through to the finished product. The process includes optimised management of updates during software development, a quality control cycle and final product testing.

A team of web specialists
at your service


Content management services:


* Analysis of best client-side interface
* Context, language and target audience analyses
* Production of all content items – localized graphics, audio and video clips
* Testing
* Regular check-ups to optimise processes, systems and site performance


We have the experience and the expertise to manage the updating cycles of sites with very dynamic content.

We will assist with the design of your communications plan. We will gather your content from multiple sources and transform it into site pages and services ready for publication. All material undergoes fast, secure validation procedures before publication on-line.

We prepare all the components necessary for publication directly in the systems of your choice. We will create fully-formatted content. If you need translation services, we can provide these, too. We will prepare downloads, flash animations, graphics, sound bytes, film clips and any other site components you might need. All according to your timelines.

Quality process

High Quality Translations
At Arancho Doc we believe that excellence can only be achieved through constant betterment. The aim of our documented quality guidelines is to implement and monitor continuous improvement targets and objectives.

EN 15038 Quality Certification
We take our quality standards very seriously, and know that you do too. That's why we invested in the EN 15038 quality certification. Thanks to this quality standard, you can rest assured that all our translation and localization projects are managed in accordance with our standard repeatable and traceable processes.

Quality Assurance
What's more, our carefully designed work processes include quality checks at every stage of the translation process. In addition to our regular quality checks, all our translation projects are checked with automatic quality assurance tools before delivery. This means that we are able to guarantee a high quality translation service time after time.

High Quality Translators
Finally, we would not be able to deliver high quality translations if it were not for our pool of highly qualified and experienced translators. All our translators are subjected to a rigorous selection procedure and quality levels are monitored on a regular basis. The majority of our translators have more than 10 years experience in their field of specialization and our Vendor Managers ensure that the most suitable translators are selected for your project. Any feedback received is traced in our proprietary workflow management system.

Document management, translation
and publication services for:


* Installation, operating and maintenance manuals
* Database content
* On-line help
* Plant and process control software
* Technical drawings, part lists, spare part catalogues
* Technical specifications, reports, certification
* Plant validation procedures



Preparing the technical manuals and documents for each of the countries where a product will be marketed is a major undertaking. A suite of three manuals, 300 pages each, in nine languages? Best leave things to Ic.Doc. Just give us the source documents in your usual format, specify the languages you need and tell us your deadline. We will do the rest.

Technical documentation is one of the areas where Ic.Doc has a wealth of experience. And expertise. Our translators are subject specialists. Our publications department will handle all your page-making, layout and graphics requirements.

We deliver a high-quality, cost-effective product. On time, every time. Our business is to leave you free to concentrate on yours.

Efficiency, speed and cost-effectiveness are in part the result of an appropriate use of the latest IT tools. Where appropriate, we make full use of translation memories, translation tools and terminology bases. Our publication specialists will handle any operating system or format.
