Process / workflow description

Computer-Aided Translation, Terminology Research & Quality Assurance

We use the best technological solutions available and choose the most suitable for each individual project to deliver professional and high quality translations. The use of the most advanced computer-aided translation tools (Computer-Aided Translation) enhances efficiency and productivity, allowing us to reuse, update and implement the resources we have built up over time, which in turn significantly reduce costs.

Our staff and freelancers are expert users of software such as SDL Trados, Déjà vu, SDLX, which are designed to assist the translation process through the use of translation memories (TMs). TMs are bilingual databases built by and for the translator so as to guarantee maximum consistency in style and terminology during the translation and revision process. The use of TMs enables us to customize the end product to meet each client’s needs. Unlike what happens in automated translation, in computer-aided translation the translator’s input is essential and guarantees an optimum result in terms of language, style and terminology.

We also build and maintain termbases, specialist dictionaries and monolingual, bilingual or multilingual glossaries with the most advanced technological tools available on the market. We specialize in ad hoc and domain terminology, targeted at standardizing specialist vocabulary in each industry area. We build our resources manually with SDL Multiterm (complex resources whose content is customizable according to requirements) and semi-automatically with SDL Multiterm Extract (to speed up the creation of glossaries from pre-existing resources, such as translation memories).

Quality Assurance (QA) software is an integral part of our management and quality control system. Leading-edge programs such as QA Checker and ApSIC Xbench enable us to consistently meet our demanding standards of quality, both for consistency of terminology and for style.

Finally, we also offer desktop publishing (DTP) services and are able to work with an extensive range of file formats.

Quality process

From the moment we receive it, through the entire process of translation, revision and delivery to the client, each project undergoes an accurate analysis so that we can determine the best workflow in terms of budget and time.

We establish open, transparent and on-going communication with our clients, mainly based on monitoring and traceability of each stage of the translation process, with the aim of constantly improving our service, also thanks to the proactive feedback we receive from each client.

Project Management
One of the strengths of our quality system is Project Management. The Project Manager is the individual whom the client can contact at any time and who ensures that the work of our language professionals is constantly monitored. This guarantees that operating procedures are implemented at all times, that the most suitable technological aids are used, and that specific requirements of each project, as well as deadlines, are always met.

Quality Assurance
Quality Assurance (QA) software is another integral part of our management and quality control system. Leading-edge programs such as QA Checker and ApSIC Xbench enable us to consistently meet our demanding standards of quality, both for consistency of terminology and for style.

In order to best implement our corporate processes, improve effectiveness and efficiency of our services and increase client satisfaction, all of our work is carried out in line with international quality standards to comply with ISO-9001:2008 on the certification of quality management systems, and with UNI EN-15038:2006, which regulates the providers of translation services.

As further evidence of our commitment to constantly providing high quality services we have applied to obtain the certificate stating conformity to both the above standards.
