Event Details

The topic for this month’s STC Europe SIG discussion is:

Translation Quality: Pain or Pleasure?

 

This discussion will focus on how we manage the quality of our translations.

 

Some questions to perhaps consider in our discussion: What is acceptable quality for your translated content? How do you measure translation quality? What issues impact translation quality in your company? What are your big pain points on achieving good translation quality? Do you do in-country reviews? If you don’t pay for 100% matches in your translation memory, does this have any impact on quality? Do you use a localisation style guide? If you do, how does it help the translation quality of your content? How do you manage translated terminology? Is it harder to achieve good translation quality for some languages compared to others? How do you handle resource restrictions that could impact  translation quality (e.g., time, budget, access to in-country reviewers, inadequate term bases)? How much do issues in your source content impact quality of the translated content? Do you have a process to help ensure translation quality?

 

Tuesday, 27 May. It’s at 17:00-18:00 CET (GMT +0100) / 11.00am-12.00pm EST
(Daylight saving time is in effect for both times shown)

 

Phone-in details:

The STC Europe SIG Watercooler Chat is informal. No speaker, no PowerPoints, no audio recording. It’s moderated. It’s free. Bring your experience, ideas and questions to share and discuss with fellow communicators located around the world.
