Multilingual layout and integration
Desktop publishing (DTP) is an integral part of localizing content for print or for online publication. We take into account the various design and typesetting factors as well as any cultural or language considerations to best lay out your localized content. We also provide comprehensive integration services such as integrating and syncing text and audio content for eLearning courses.
Roll out your training and eLearning content to market with our comprehensive language services: •Our linguists carefully translate your text, following any style guides, glossaries or translation memories that are available. We provide glossary or style guide creation services before translation starts, and also manage your translation memory to leverage for future use. •For training content with audio requirements, simply choose your preferred voice, and we’ll manage the script preparation, pronunciation glossaries, audio recording and full editing. •We can integrate and sync your localized text and audio content into your desired format, delivering translated courses that are ready for your target market. •We work with a wide range of authoring tools and formats, such as the Articulate and Adobe suites. We can also provide localized subtitles for video content, if necessary.

Documents & Print
Get accurate, locally-relevant translations and print materials with our document translation services: •All translation work is done by professional native-speakers of the target language, with a minimum of two linguists checking every translated word. •Our linguists are matched with specific projects based on their subject matter expertise (IT, marketing, etc.) •We embrace the use of translation technology to streamline and improve the translation process. These industry-standard tools, such as Trados and Wordfast, allow us to create Translation Memories (TMs) and Termbases (glossaries) to ensure language and style consistency across the translated content. Your TM can also be leveraged for your future projects to reduce costs and ensure consistency. •For print publications with graphic components, we take into account the various design and typesetting factors as well as any cultural or language considerations to best lay out your localized content. Graphics are localized and the layout is adjusted for text expansion, bi-directional text (such as Arabic reading right to left) or similar factors.
Your web-based content is likely the first point of contact with your customers, and a multi-language site opens up a much broader customer base: •When translating your website, our linguists adapt translated content to be relevant and relatable for your global customer. •We work with a variety of formats, from HTML, Flash and other rich media, to fully localize all aspects of your site. •Files are processed by our standard translation tools to ensure only the text for translation is changed without interfering with programming or code. •Linguistic texting and QA services checks for issues such as concatenation and text overexpansion to ensure full functionality in your localized site.
Software & Apps
When localizing software, special considerations must be made to ensure language changes do not affect the functionality and look of your site. •Before creating your software or app, we can advise you on localization best practices to make sure functionality is not affected when your content is translated. •Understanding the grammatical differences between your source language and target language(s) is key to avoiding issues like concatenation. •Text expansion should also be considered, especially for certain languages pairs. When translating from English to Spanish, for example, there is often a 20% expansion in the amount of text. Our linguists will also take this into account when translating to avoid any expansion issues in your final build. •To ensure the quality of your final product, we can work with you and your required platforms to create a test plan for linguistic and functional testing.
