The big picture
Once we receive your request we start by reviewing the copy you want translated. We then contact you to agree a delivery time and discuss other relevant aspects. The more we know about you and your document, the better our quote will be. Naturally, we treat all copy with full confidentiality. Requests sent via our client portal are encrypted in TSL 128 bits, which is especially important for projects subject to strict non-disclosure terms.
CAT analysis and translation memory
When all the relevant facts are known, we analyse your copy using computer-assisted translation (CAT) software. CAT software divides the copy into small portions and compares these with each other and with previous translations to identify regularities and repetitions. We offer a 70% discount on our standard word rate for repetitions from past translations and a 40% on so-called "fuzzy matches".
Our translation management system (TRS) is the backbone of our business and stores everything relating to your quote: documents, analysis, notes and so on. The TRS allows us to start the translation process as soon as we have received the go-ahead from you. Once we have all the relevant information, we will send you a quote that specifies price, proposed delivery date and an analysis of how much money you will save by choosing us.
