We receive feedback from our customers during translation process and conduct surveys after completion of every project. Our language quality responsible audits language quality. We use quantitative and qualitative methods to assess quality regarding various aspects of projects. The review process is critical to the quality of the translated product. As part of our Quality Assurance (QA) process, various checklists are therefore used to ensure all steps have been completed.
Besides, all translations are given a basic proof-read called a PM check. This is not to be confused with a Language proof-read; a PM check is carried out by our project manager and involves making sure that all source material has been translated and that all reference material have been used properly.
All of our translation must be reviewed by a second, equally qualified translator as per our quality standards. This review checks translation accuracy, register, and style to confirm the translated text’s “suitability for purpose”. The reviewer will proof a hard copy printout and/or perform an on-screen review, depending on the need of each particular project. The translator will conduct a final review of the project to ensure that the text has been formatted correctly. He/she will verify that words have been hyphenated properly and nothing has been omitted from the text during the formatting stage.
Finally, the Project Manager will gather all the deliverables and verify that they meet your original specifications. He/she will make sure the layout, page numbers, proper names and other details match your source document one last time. This is what we call "final-eye".
