Translation Quality & Localization Standards by Dr. Arle Lommel

2,574 views, Inglese, uploaded by Sales Admin

In recent years localization standards have grown in importance. This presentation covers why standards are needed (and why they matter to individual translators as well as large companies), what current standards address, and how the standards landscape is evolving. We are currently seeing a shift from standards that focus on facilitating data migration and preserving linguistic assets to standards that focus on true interoperability between tools and components in an increasingly automated global supply chain. Ten years ago projects were accessible on a human scale, but as projects become larger and larger and involve more and more translators, suppliers, content creators, etc., they are moving past unaided human capability to a realm where only standardizing workflows and automating processes will allow translators to deliver value. At the same time, these shifts in the fundamental nature of how translation is carried out are having profound implications for the notion of “quality.” This presentation will cover six fundamentally different concepts of quality and how they apply to translation. Traditionally the industry has considered only a few of these definitions of quality, but the emergence of automated translation is forcing a reevaluation of what quality is and how to apply quality metrics for translation projects. The presentation will cover some of the changes in this area that can be expected in the next few years and how they will impact the translation industry.


 Reining in the Cloud—A Call for Managed Collaboration


Reining in the Cloud—A Call for Managed Collaboration

In “Reining in the Cloud,” terminology expert Uwe Muegge discusses the role of cloud sourcing in the localization process. In spite of the recognized advantages derived from cloud sourcing, the diminutive size of the professional localization community prevents language service providers from enjoying the same quality-oriented checks and balances inherent in large-scale collaborative efforts. In his presentation, Muegge proposes that managed collaboration is the only sound method of harnessing the “power of the cloud” for use in localization projects. He will delve into how the need for managed collaboration will affect the software as a service (SaaS) sector of the localization industry, specifically focusing on the functionality of next-generation translation memory and terminology management software. Among the new software functions necessitated by the industry-wide focus on cloud sourcing, Uwe will discuss a new approach to user profile management in collaborative translation software. To wit, Uwe will focus on data-specific permissions that, in terms of quality and security, enable organizations engaging in multilingual localization and their language service providers to effectively realize a productivity-driven, quality-based collaborative environment. Uwe’s presentation will explore the application of wiki-based technology in the realization of these goals. Namely, the allocation of user permissions, comprehensive version control, automatic notification functions, and complete traceability inherent in wiki-based software applications will be the focal point of the presentation, with special attention paid to how each of these aspects of functionality significantly improves upon the translation and localization process.

Linguistic bang for your buck Everyone needs to get a return on investment in their business. How can you make sure you keep costs low and returns high when investing in language services? Technological capabilities and flexible service levels are central to helping you achieve value for money. Translation buyers will discover what to look for in a translation services provider: · Does the translation company offer 24 hour coverage? · Do they only use professional translators working into their native tongue? · Does the company offer technology services to help streamline and automate the translation management process? · Does the company adhere to quality standards such as ISO? · How does the company recruit and assign translators to projects? · How important is previous subject-specific experience · To separate out what matters and what doesn’t matter when choosing a translation services provider. · Establish what role technology can play in cutting companies’ translation costs whilst improving quality. · Learn how involved your translation provider can become in your international communications: you can have a simple translation-only service, or a fully-integrated and automated workflow between your content management system, the translators and the translation company.

When we talk about quality we often are imprecise about what we mean and for whom we mean it. A customer’s notion of quality may be very different from that of employees or shareholders and finding the right balance between competing notions of quality can be a major challenge. In this presentation Alison Toon will discuss the various notions of quality and how businesses can put a value on them in order to find the proper balance. In addition, she will discuss the key problem with evaluating translation: If we do not know the quality of the source, how can we know the quality of the translation? Understanding the importance of the source can result in very different ways of looking at localization quality.

Collaboration technology and widespread broadband access allows translation companies to remove steps and thus improve their workflow and processes. A natural development is the trend to remove intermediaries and work directly with the professional translator, skipping the single language vendor. This has implications for all the players: MLVs, SLVs, and freelancers. Renato discusses this trend.

"How much can I ask for it?" - that is the question. Reasonable buyer would not offer the highest possible bid in auction. Reasonable seller of professional services will not offer the lowest possible bid either. Serge discusses client - provider engagement and pricing policy from the point of view of game theory. The presentation is intended both for clients, who are interested in getting the lowest price possible retaining the best service providers, and for vendors, who are motivated to get fair price for their services and withhold the price pressure.

Translation vendors are your partners, and not a commodity or a necessary annoyance. This presentation will share ideas on how to improve your relationships with your vendors from day one. Having a strong and positive relationship with your vendors is not just a feel-good proposition: it makes good business sense. Positive relationships with your vendors help you, in turn, to strengthen relationships with your clients. If your translation vendors trust you and go the extra mile for you, your clients will see this in the end product that you deliver to them and appreciate working with you even more.

In this presentation Attila will share his experience and views on pro bono work, focusing on the main question: Under what circumstances can free work and professional ethics be reconciled? The description of the Solidarités team's workflow will also show how high quality can be achieved in team work – and pinpoint the components that are most often missing in crowdsourced projects.

Attila’s experience in the field stems from a three-year collaboration with the Solidarités team (www.proz.com/team/664), set up in 2007 with the double aim of providing pro bono linguistic aid to humanitarian NGOs and of creating a place for translators to network and learn. 2009 was a milestone for the team: its main beneficiary, the French NGO Solidarités created paid 3-month internship positions for two team members who had just started their professional career. The success of this first internship program led to a second one in 2010 – and to a third position, to which attendees of the conference may apply.

Introduction to Logoport Presented by Marcus CasalIn this presentation Marcus will showcase Lionbridge's innovative language asset management system Logoport. Unlike other translation memory systems, Logoport places translation memories and glossaries (collectively ""language assets"") into a central repository, stores them securely in a single location and supports many thousands of concurrent users. Enabling efficient management and sharing of translation memory systems and glossaries across products, divisions, and functional groups of a client company. Moreover, Marcus will present an overview of Logoport from a translator's perspective-how a translator works with Logoport. From the easy to use Microsoft Word client, to the industry standard powered XLIFF editor and the intuitive glossary features, Logoport presents a limited learning curve to experienced translators, while offering advantages to both translators and customers by granting all team members access to all assets in real time. Accordingly, Logoport allows for greater linguistic consistency and less project overhead. Finally, Marcus will review the web-based administrator functionality for a ""behind the scenes"" look at how projects are created and managed.

Seemingly, the only difference between interpretation and translation is in the form in which the message is being delivered from one language into another: translators do it in writing, while interpreters provide “instantaneous oral” reformulation. However, the differences in skill sets, personal traits, aptitudes, and working environments are significant. In this presentation, we will discuss professional characteristics of a competent interpreter, modes of interpretation, areas of specialization, and training options for aspiring interpreters. Attendees will be offered a brief aptitude test in the language-neutral format.

In this session, we will develop the following aspects of Quality Assurance implementation to a translation product, and in this order: Linguistic knowledge of both source and target languages will be taken for granted; however, we, as reviewers, have detected two kinds of mistakes in translation projects completed by “high quality” translators: human-translation related mistakes and CAT-tool related mistakes. The former are only detectable by and dependent upon the vision and competence of the translator, and the latter are easily spotted if using the whole variety of QA automatic features available through current CAT tools. To avoid human-translation related mistakes, we propose a switch in the approach translations usually take: we should start looking at the translation product - not only the text- from the editor's / reviewer's point of view.
