Frequently Asked Questions

Q: What is transcreation?

Transcrataion stands for translation + creation. When translating marketing communication content, translation alone is often not enough to meet the quality of requirement of localized materials. Translated texts must be rewritten or modified to meet the target language and culture requirements of different international markets. However, transcreated content is generally not suitable for TM (translation memory) leverage as the repurposed segments may not be 100% accurate without context.

Q: What is MT post-editing?

Machine translation has increasingly gained acceptance in today’s localization world. Depending on the MT engine used, the quality of the machine translated text must be reviewed and edited by a trained human linguist to correct grammar and accuracy errors. The amount of post-editing efforts depends on the language pair as well if the MT engine is adequately trained with existing translation memories as well as industry specific terminology glossaries.

Q: How do I get started with terminology management?

Terminology management is the single most important step you can take to improve translation quality while reducing localization costs. One way to get started is to begin a translation glossary. You can either select terms manually or use a tool such as Term Extract to assemble the terms automatically. Each term should be precisely defined so as to not leave any ambiguity. Next, have your translators translate the terms into your target languages.

Q: What is a translation style guide?

A translation style guide is set of instructions that your translators abide by when they translate your content. Typically they include information like if product names should be translated or left in English, preferred international currency, number and date formats, and ways to handle acronyms/abbreviations, and capital/lowercase letter conventions, etc.
