With our roots as a software company we have developed systems and tools to ensure quality control throughout the translation process.

We really are the industry leaders in Translation services!

Top Quality Translators

At Straker we have a dedicated translator manager who has the job of finding, reviewing, testing, training (on our RAY™ platform) and rating translators. Translators are also scored on every job they complete and tracked for time, efficiency, reliability and accuracy as they work inside ourRAY™ platform on projects.

Depending on the project scope we will allocate you translators who have the relevant experience, tone-of-voice skills and are available to meet the timeframe.

Review Services

Translation quality is a key consideration for text representing your product or service.  We offer all levels of reviews of content from light post editing of social media content to fully reviewed (for grammar, context and tone) print ready quality.

Our most popular quality level is a ‘professional’ translation with a review for grammar and spelling. As we have already selected a translator with domain knowledge and a high rating for quality and thoroughness a review by a second translator allows you to be 100% confident.
