Our Team
Technology Background. We use the following translation software: Across Language Server (server based translation software for all internal and external resources used for localization, translations, proofreading, terminology and QA tasks; providing a central translation memory, a central terminology system, a multi-format editor, and powerful integrated project and workflow management (including file management and API integration), quality assurance and meaningful reporting) used for all translations for which the customer doesn't require a specific TM tool SDL Trados (translation software for handling localization, translations, proofreading tasks, QA tasks) frequently used as requested by international customers SDL Multiterm (for managing client's terminology) QA Distiller (for automated translation quality assurance) Adobe Acrobat (for PDF annotations and pre-print-proofreading tasks) STAR Transit (translation software for handling translations) MemoQ (translation software for handling translations) Alchemy Catalyst (for software localization and engineering) SDL Passolo (for software localization and engineering) We use the following project management software: Proprietary ERP system Delfy (used to manage all of Skrivaneks projects: storing information about resources, helping allocate the appropriate resources to specific jobs, monitor deadlines, offer instant reporting on purchase orders and invoices, as well as creating a tailor- made workflow suited to each projects specific terms and needs)
How We Work. Every client is assigned its dedicated PM (or team of dedicated PMs) and a back-up system is implemented. We can offer one centralized contact point with universal opening hours from Global Production Management Centre – where all communication is in English and is centralized, i.e. single mail address. Or we can provide local communication points in different languages provided by our local account managers and or project managers. Every project usually starts with a kick-off meeting and continues with follow up meetings and satisfaction surveys. Careful project preparation – we study all relevant information provided by the customer about their company. Project team set-up – we short list and test a number of translators and reviewers before settling on those best qualified for the particular customer and create a long-term translation team. All information is entered in a project management tool including the selected project team in order to dedicate the same resources to the project. The average response time to a customer request is under 30 minutes. According to volumes, a quote can be submitted and jobs can be confirmed in 1 up to 3 hours. During project processing queries are raised and answered via query reports or via instant messaging available in the TMS.
Work Flow. We fully understand that effective project management saves you time and money. In order to achieve desirable results, we follow the most efficient workflow process.
Data Exchange. We can receive requests and files via: FTP (secured FTP) Web Automatically and instantly to our TMS using Web Services (or Across CrossGrid) The seamless integration of our process helps to manage multilingual file sets, where there may be thousands of files and dozens of file types per language, with constant updates that must be implemented across the different language versions throughout the process. This approach ensures the highest content re-use and automates the hand-over process between client, project managers, translators and reviewers.
Capacities. Each translator is expected to handle up to 2,500 words per day, each proofreader 10,000 words. There is usually 1 day of lead time. Project managers will require at least a day of lead time to receive/distribute the source files and a day to review the completed target files (larger files require as many as a few days of review). For larger projects and or short turnaround jobs, simply multiply the number of translators and/or proofreaders to determine larger outputs (i.e. 2 translators can handle 5,000 words a day, 4 translators can complete 10,000 words). To preserve the uniformity of a text, the minimum number of reviewers is employed (i.e. preferably 4 translators and one proofreader) unless time constraints require additional personnel. Proofreaders usually begin their work once the translation is completed, so (for example) a 10,000 word translation will take 7 working days in case of standard delivery. 1 day to receive and send files to translator + 4 days to translate + 1 day to proofread + 1 day for quality check and deliver target files to client The duration of a project is defined in terms of working days and does not include weekends, unless specifically mentioned. Other capacities available upon request.
