Hello everybody!

I've been contacted by a potential client who is asking me if I'm willing to accept working with them (OK) and my price for translations (OK) plus my "price for quality assurance".

I've never heard about it and I don't really know what to answer to the client. What's this?

Thank you in advance for your answers.
Ivana

proofreading? Jul 5, 2005

Could they simply mean your rates for proofreading (assuring the quality of other people's work rather than your own)?

Quality Assurance Jul 5, 2005

Hello Ivana

I think Clare is right. QA = Quality Assurance is a management concept - unusual and a bit funny to be used here.

A nice summer for all
Erik

See the following:

======
What is Quality Assurance (QA)?

Quality Assurance (QA) is often confused with Quality Control (QC), even by those who should know and understand the difference. The LISA Best Practice Guide Quality Assurance: The Client Perspective explores QA and how to obtain quality localization results.
