Editing a Japanese Translation Memory for a UK Retailer

K International uses an advanced Translation Management System (TMS) to allow the translator(s) to be supported by technology as much as possible. Content is stored in translation memories and managed in term bases. These are built over time and provide leverage when content tends to repeat.

Seamless importing and exporting a wide variety of popular content formats, including Microsoft Office, Adobe InDesign, Adobe FrameMaker, HTML, XLIFF, XML, JS, JSON, YAML, Drupal PO, Scalable Vector Graphics (SVG), and others. We develop tailored file filters for specific scenarios where it is necessary to filter out customised code or untranslatable content. Using these filters, we guarantee that non-translatable text remains identical in source and target.

The TMS has an integrated QA feature that analyses all documents before exporting and flags up any problem so that they can be fixed by either the project manager or the translators, depending on the nature of the issue. Some of the problems that can be flagged up and corrected are: rogue spaces; number mismatches between source and target; formatting mismatches (italics, bold, etc.); code mismatches; use of forbidden terminology; duplicated words; and inconsistencies at segment level.

Interpreting Services

Professional interpreting services are used when you or your organisation need to instantly communicate in another language. Our team of professional interpreters support a wide range of situations ranging from vital public services to helping global companies communicate with international stakeholders.

We provide interpreters to attend assignments in person. This takes the form of Conference or Simultaneous Interpreting. Conference Interpreters are provided for large events where several participants don’t understand the main language spoken. An Interpreter Booth and other interpreting equipment will be required (which we can supply). Simultaneous interpreting (sometimes called whispering interpreting) is useful for events where only a few participants require help with the language. The interpreter sits next to or behind the person and whispers the interpretation to them.

Our interpreters can also be accessed instantly via our telephone interpreting services. Telephone interpreting is used when face-to-face contact is not necessary, or when the requirement is urgent or unexpected. Telephone interpreting provides a cost effective method of speaking any language. Once setup connection time to an interpreter is normally under a minute and the service can be integrated into existing call centres and other voice applications.

We’ll help you to understand how all this fits together and provide tools to manage the process. We’ll use all the usual translation memoires, workflows and creative services and add to these insights to help you to understand how your project is received in the new target market your thinking of selling to.
