“There are no barriers when it comes to language.”
The quote above is our slogan, but it represents more than just a smart thought. It is the result of years’ worth of improving ourselves and increasing our experience and expertise. It is the motto, which subtly hints of the big portfolio of services we offer to our partners. These are the translation services which help us eliminate all language barriers.
Translation, Editing, Proofreading
While a combination of 3 separate translation services, TEP is usually requested as a single service, and comprises about 80% of our daily workload. It involves using at least two separate linguists – a translator and a reviser – both fluent in the source language and native in the target language. This results in an end product that is far from just a translated version of the original. The client receives a localized version of their texts, suited precisely to the target audience for the product, with the highest possible linguistic quality, surpassing the requirements of ISO17100 or any other localization quality standards.
QA is an essential step in every localization project, and is usually assigned to an independent third-party vendor who can objectively review and assess the quality of an already completed translation. This requires vast knowledge on both the source and the target languages, the project requirements – style, format, terminology, the QA process, including error categories and severities, as well as strong arbitration skills.
Also known as Desktop Publishing, DTP is an essential part of any localization process. It is what visually turns the translated and revised texts into the final product that will be presented to the end-users. Our DTP experts work with some of the most challenging and graphics-intensive software products, providing excellent results for a variety of projects – from ANY language to ANY language.
Translating user interface elements is always a challenge. Each software product has its own requirements, target audience and technology specifics. The space for translation is oftentimes limited by the size of the UI elements themselves (menus, buttons, notifications, etc.), so language and wording have to be carefully selected in order to convey the meaning in as few words as possible. The expertise our teams have accumulated in this field allows us to easily allocate the most appropriate resources and to ensure that the end user will have a smooth and clear experience using the software.
Machine Translation Post-Editing
Not long ago machine translation was considered translators’ worst nightmare, and at the same time was mocked and underestimated for being ages behind human translation. Not surprisingly though, recent advances in computing and engineering led to newer and better algorithms, which made it possible for MT, and especially Neural MT, to show its true potential. Working with MT requires particular skills and approach, and here at TransGlobe International all our language specialists are certified in Machine Translation Post-Editing using the latest CAT tools and software solutions.
Access to localized content shouldn’t be limited to your monitor screen, book, or handheld device. For many among us it’s the feeling of the message that’s important, and being visually-impaired is challenging enough without the added pressure of trying to communicate in a foreign language. This is why we work closely with the Bureau of Employment for Visually Impaired People (BEVIP) in Bulgaria, providing opportunities for visually-impaired translators to be part of our localization process and bring more translated braille content to the people who need it.
