Efficient translation procurement service
Translizer provides a comprehensive translation procurement solution for corporate and institutional customers. Translizer's translation procurement experts will map your language service requirements, shortlist potential vendors, carry out various background checks on these vendors along with quality checking for specific needs and we can negotiate service levels and rates to ensure you get the most value for your translation budget. Translizer is an independent and impartial expert in language services and can carry out the work efficiently, diligently and cost-effectively every time.
Your translation strategy must dove-tail your overall business, sales, expansion and marketing strategies. Your linguistic team must be able to work seamlessly with you to support your organisational goals. When everyone is clear on the strategy, success will follow.
Translating can be a risky undertaking if proper precautions are not taken with regards to translator availability, linguistic competence and contingency planning.
Computer Assisted Translation (CAT) tools like Trados and MemoQ are essential aspects of modern translation. In some instances Machine Translation (MT) might also be considered. We use the latest versions of the best CAT tools to maximise translator productivity.
Our industry-leading M.I. allows us to manage and forecast budgets effectively. Translation budgets can easily get out of control if not managed systematically and robustly.
The best translation process starts well before the translatable content has even been written. Optimised content authoring, use of imagery reduce turnaround times and cost. Our systematic approach supports efficient scheduling and quality consistency.
Our service has been designed to suit both cyclical and static loads. Delivery is unaffected by sickness or holidays and service is adjustable for peak and slow periods.
Route to success
Most organisations overlook the benefits of planning their translation processes. Whilst it is understandable as translation is not a core activity, the benefits of planning speak for themselves. We use planning as a general guide to prepare for what's around the corner, but care must be taken that plans don't make you inflexible.
Vendor selection is the bread and butter of our procurement team. We have a vast database covering tens of thousands of translation companies with a wide range of information not available to the general public. Our years or experience gives us an unrivalled insight into who is best in what language and what subject matter.
The challenge in translation procurement is to choose amongst ten vendors who claim to be experts in every language and every industry subject. Our approach ensures you go directly to the relevant experts straight away and cut away expanded sub-contractor chains. Our diligent background work ensures long-term success.
It's one thing to set things in motion and hope for the best, but smart money goes into proactive monitoring, analysis and adaptation. Every project is a learning opportunity no matter how great or how disasterous it may be. Our open and honest communication chain encourages innovation and continuous improvement.
