Quality Assurance for Perfect Translations

With us, you’re working with the best.

We evaluate the quality of our Freelance Translators very carefully. It begins with the selection of Translators:

Our candidates must pass several specially-developed translation tests, in order to verify their suitability for translating complex technical and marketing texts. These tests ensure that the source text is not only fully understood, but also critically questioned. Since Technical Translators must constantly deal with new subject areas, their research skills are also examined.

After this initial testing phase, our own Translation Project Managers constantly monitor the quality of the translations being delivered. Human control is complemented by specialised software solutions that subject the translation to an entire series of automated checks that are precisely tailored to customer requirements.

After submission, translations can be checked for quality and correctness by an independent second Translator, in accordance with the “Four-Eyes Principle”. All results of these checks flow into a specially-developed rating system, where they are recorded and monitored, and which provides an overview of how each Translator progresses. The Translator is kept informed about their performance and any identified weaknesses, allowing them to initiate corrective measures.
