Process / workflow description

 Pre-analysis on translation projects: we’ll perform translation analysis before starting translation projects, so as to find mostly suitable persons to perform the translation and look for related terminology, reference materials and other helpful sources.
 Translation: After that, we’ll select the most suitable candidates to start the work, and provide clear instructions, TM/glossary, reference materials etc to them. During the translation process, we’ll monitor their translation progress and always let them deliver batch-to-batch to check the overall quality.
 Editing/proofreading: After the translation, our editor/proofreader (sometimes I myself do the editing/proofreading work) will do the editing/proofreading work to check the quality of original translation and send the quality feedback to me. The editor/proofreader will be responsible in improving the accuracy, fluency, grammar, spelling, consistency of translation etc.
 Formatting/DTP: After that, the DTP specialist will do necessary formatting/DTP work to ensure that the layout of translation is completely same as that of original text.
 Final review/QA: The last step will be final review/QA, which usually is done by me. I always check the quality, translation style and layout of final products, and make necessary revisions on final products to ensure the quality. If the clients want us to perform QA (usually localization projects), we can also provide QA report to them.
