We set up two separate teams of four linguists, also assigning one reviser to each team and a subject matter expert. Our expert liaised with both our teams and our client’s key contacts, ensuring that we used accurate terminology throughout the translations.
At the start of the project, we also tasked our team with creating a term base to add to our specialist translation management tools. Whenever the reviser ran a quality check, the software would pick out any discrepancies between the translation and the term base. This made sure that the terminology we used stayed consistent.
By putting together teams of translators, we were able to deliver this high-volume project on time. We also provided our client with a Certification of Accuracy, ensuring that the translation was completed according to ISO 17100:2015 standards.

- Time sensitive
- Restricted budget
Given the high volume of documents and urgent deadline, we provided our client with our Advanced Machine Translation solution.
Using past projects completed by human translators, our neural translation machines have been trained on a variety of specialist subject areas. While the results can lack the sensitivity of a human linguist, they still produce impressive results. This is a cost-effective solution that saves on time, which was ideal for this particular project.
When then delivered the translation in Word format, so that our client’s internal revisers could check through the documents and make any amendments needed. The result was a high-volume project delivered within two working days on a restricted budget, covering all of our client’s needs.
