Quarterly Business Reviews (QBRs) and KPIs in Translation and Localization: An Essential Insight for the Clients (Video)

Mladen Stojak 4 months ago Comment

Before we begin this story, we need to talk about the elephant in the room – the elusive ROI and KPIs of localization and translation services. Unless you have decided to invest in localization with a very specific objective of such a venture – for example, localizing user manuals/help files to decrease the number of calls to the customer services department – the traditional ROI and KPI measurements will simply not work no matter how you try.

Why Localize at All? Because You Want Your Business to Grow

Mladen Stojak 5 months ago Comment

In the previous article How to Localize: The 3 Pillars of Localization Process, I shared my views on how the localization process should be set up to deliver the desired results and how the understanding of localization has been somewhat changed by the current pandemic. This time, I am talking about the things that have not been changed and that are not very likely to change – the benefits of localization.

Localization for the Automotive Industry: Keeping it Consistent

Miloš Matović 10 months ago Comment

Cars. They are complex, sophisticated and ubiquitous. Their build quality and safety features are extremely important in our everyday lives. Yet, much of what we need to know when purchasing a car is contained in its brand – luxurious, family, sport cars, SUVs (and more) are all safely tucked in the brand names whose reputation has been carefully developed for decades. And it is probably true that for most of these decades, the localization requirements of the automotive industry were mostly limited to marketing materials and user manuals. But all things change.

Translating Patient-Facing Content: Challenges and Solutions

Miloš Matović 11 months ago Comment

Patient-facing content includes all medical and pharmaceutical materials targeted at patients and end users who are not necessarily familiar with expert terminology and procedures.

Depending on their purpose, these materials may cover a wide range of topics, from legal information to instructions for use of medical devices, and all of this must be conveyed in a clear and unambiguous manner to make the information understandable to the non-expert target audiences.

Language Quality: Why Should You Even Care?

Miloš Matović 11 months ago Comment

Nobody likes the grammar police of the internet. Unless somebody is typing an email or any other material with the purpose to truly make an impression, spellcheckers usually annoy people. Nobody likes being corrected  for something so banal as language because people tend to view language as nothing more than a communication tool and don’t bother with it as long as it works. Fair enough. So why should you even care about the language quality at all?

What Is an Editable File (And Why PDF Isn’t Really One)

Miloš Matović 2 years ago Comment

Editable file is one of the language industry’s magic phrases that activates certain powers such as cost/time optimization. The reason is simple – editable files can be easily imported in CAT tools and thus enable the localization teams to apply the carefully developed processes of linguistic and technical adaptation, quality control and optional DTP. Simply put – there is no localization process and reliable quality control without the CAT software and CAT software can only be used with editable files.
