How to Plan for Translation and Execute a Successful Translation Workflow

Automating translation process

Translation Process

GlobalVision guides your organization’s translation and localization projects through communication and mutually understood expectations. Our Project Managers assist you in clarifying the Scope of Work for each project to meet your specific needs. Your Project Managers can be as communicative as you want them to be from completely managing every step of the localization process to keeping you abreast as each project progresses. You decide.

Our proprietary Translation Management System is a tool developed for ensuring strict adherence to company approved terminology, the availability of reference materials, the smooth and rapid movement of your projects through the localization process, and for simple and track-able Q&A around words, terms and content specific to your company, brand and subject matter. You will be provided secure access, and training if desired, to this GlobalVision exclusive tool. Use it to track progress, upload files, and even initiate your own projects with GlobalVision.

Document Translation Process

We have a simple, 12-step process applied to Document Translation Projects. This not only helps everyone understand the expectations, but also the terminology commonly used in the Translation industry.
