When it comes to translation and localization, there are a lot of options available today. When deciding which method is best for you, keep in mind that there are many steps required to produce a translation that is 100% accurate and applicable to your target audience. It is important to partner with a company that has a proven translation process in place that allows you to track your project from start to finish.
TrueLanguage offers clients a detailed process flow that provides a roadmap to follow throughout the project lifecycle. Recognizing that each client will bring different requirements to the table, we designed our process with the flexibility to accommodate your specific needs.
Before we start translating, we evaluate each project to determine the most efficient approach to follow. Our goal is to streamline the process and provide cost-effective solutions that deliver exactly what you want. Our disciplined methodology helps to ensure that you receive high-quality deliverables in all languages throughout the translation and localization process.
TrueLanguage consults with you prior to beginning a localization and translation project to help identify any potential obstacles we might see. Working together, we will establish project expectations, specifications for deliverables, and scheduling and budget requirements.
Each client is assigned a dedicated, locally-based project manager who will manage your project effectively and efficiently.
Your TrueLanguage project manager will work with you to determine the optimal workflow for delivering your project on time and on budget.
We will assign a team of experts who possess the right skill set for your project.
Our process allows for translation, localization, editing and proofreading by internal staff, followed by client review and approval. Once approved, the translation is incorporated into its original format and returned to you.
Translating words into another language is only one component of true localization. Effective localization addresses additional facets of your message such as:
- how time and date are displayed in the locale
- the proper currency or units of measure for the locale
- whether the images are appropriate and respectful for the locale
- replacing American slang phrases
- careful assessment of humor
- adjusting analogies to be appropriate for the locale
By paying attention to the smallest details, you can avoid mistakes that can be embarrassing and even offensive to your target audience. Because TrueLanguage linguists are native speakers of the language into which they translate and live in the target country, they understand – and will capture – the cultural nuances and subtleties of the intended locale.
TrueLanguage recognizes how important it is to track each and every step of your project to ensure quality assurance and on-time completion. As such, we have developed stringent project management (PM) procedures in accordance with our ISO 9001:2008 guidelines and employ a sophisticated PM tool, Plunet Project Manager. With Plunet’s technology, we can manage the entire lifecycle of each project, ensuring a more efficient and streamlined process. Our clients can track their project and see the various built-in quality assurance steps from beginning to end.
At TrueLanguage, we value and respect our clients. We are committed to making sure each client is completely relaxed knowing that their project is in good hands. Our clients appreciate how easy it is to do business with us. Call or email us today to learn more about the benefits of partnering with TrueLanguage for your translation and localization needs.
