Glossaries and Reserved Words

Glossaries and reserved words are a simple and free way for us to help drive accuracy, speed and quality for our customers. With a glossary, you can build your own unique store of commonly used words and phrases which have to be translated in a certain way, or not translated at all. These rules can be applied across all your translation projects to ensure consistency and ongoing accuracy.

Validation Platform

Validation enables your chosen reviewers to feedback on the translation by using simple functions. To feedback, the reviewer simply highlights any piece of text and writes a comment in the margin, very similar to common word processing platforms. You can mark up any changes to the translated text that need to appear in the future translation.

Translation Memory

Your memory is a unique store of words and phrases that you’ve had previously translated with us. Translators can see these stored words on all new translation projects and they’ll know they won’t need to translate them again. This helps with consistency and as there’s less unique content to translate, which speeds up translation times. As we don’t charge for repetitions your costs lower over time.
