Quality management forms the cornerstone of any
successful translation and localization project.
Nowadays, speed and efficiency are essential, and content usually has a short lifecycle, which means that quality is a major factor in an equation that also features speed and cost efficiency. But how does one balance all of these seemingly contradictory factors?
One thing is certain: to achieve the desired level of quality, it is not enough anymore to simply employ the right people for the right tasks.
Implementing specific workflows, developing multi-step processes, extensively using technologies and tools, and applying concrete standards across all translation/localization work is also essential.
Today, ORCO offers a series of such complementary quality assurance services, which you can read about below.
There are many different kinds of review and revision, depending on your content and business needs.

Your “language assets” are your linguistic infrastructure materials: your translation memories, glossaries, style guides, or other supporting materials for the localization of your products.
They are a vital part of your localization program since they set out the framework your products should be localized in, the brand image and language you want to convey, the text conventions and cultural norms of each locale you target, and the way you want to communicate with your customers.
If this is your first time localizing your products, we can help create them for you. And if not, we can help maintain them in top condition so you can get the most out of them.
