Language technology is an essential component of all translation work.
Every product manufactured today requires mandatory declarations, safety information, labelling, and so on, before it can even be authorised for marketing. These requirements have led to an ever-increasing volume of data, which must be translated into many different languages in compliance with the applicable guidelines and in a timely manner, as a delayed market launch could result in lost sales.
Technology solutions are the only way to guarantee that this data volume can be translated correctly and consistently.
Professional translators worldwide use translation tools, with which texts are segmented and stored as language pairs in translation memories. Text modules can thus be reused as often as required and with different media, without having to constantly re-translate already available material. This ensures a consistent corporate language, even if you have different providers working on your texts, as well as a reduction in the amount of new content to be translated. However, ongoing maintenance of as well as strict adherence to translation memories is crucial.
The solutions provided by alfaloc language technology guarantee that these requirements will be met.
The second crucial pillar of professional translation is terminology. Every company defines precise designations for the translation of their product information, which must be consistently adhered to in all relevant content. A specialist terminology database is created, which is accessed during every translation step and compared with the new content to be created. This ensures the consistent use of terminology and reduces the amount of effort required for the review and correction of translations.
alfaloc language technology has developed proprietary technology solutions for the complete management of specialist terminology and for reviewing compliance with this terminology. These solutions deliver greater accuracy and reliability compared with standard solutions and make the entire translation process more efficient and cost-effective.
