Computer-Aided Translation (CAT) tools

I pride myself on being a skillful user of Computer-Aided Translation (CAT) tools, and Quality Assurance (QA) Checkers. I am a proficient user of SDL Trados Studio (2019), Wordfast Pro, MemoQ 2015, and XTM. Also, I professionally use Xbench, QA Distiller, and Ltb (Linguistic ToolBox). 


Quality Control (QC) and Quality Assurance (QA)

I- Quality Control (QC): All completed translation projects must go through a Quality Control Process for several checks and balances to ensure the best possible product for the end-user free from any semantic mistakes, syntactical mistakes, or stylistic mistakes. This process includes some steps which vary slightly according to the provided service as listed below: 

A - Semantic mistakes: 

  • Are there any paragraphs, sentences, or words omitted?
  • Are there any words omitted or added such that the sentence meaning is changed?
  • Are there incorrect shades of meaning used (i.e., incorrect connotation)?
  • Are there phrases mistranslated due to a lack of understanding of context or culture?
  • Are there any ambiguities in the meaning? 

B - Syntactical mistakes: 

  • Is the target language structure maintained despite the influence of source text?
  • Are there grammatical errors?
  • Are there any spelling mistakes?
  • Are the punctuation rules of the target language being followed? 

C - Stylistic mistakes: 

  • Is there any incoherence?
  • Are archaic words being used?
  • Is there any unnecessary repetition?
  • Is there any awkwardness? 

II - Quality Assurance (QA): After completing the quality control process, I run a QA checker such as use Xbench, QA Distiller, or Ltb, identically use Xbench, for consistency of the translated text, numbers, omission, tag verifier, spacing, punctuation, and regular expressions.
