Beginning with a project plan is critical
Before we begin translating, we evaluate each project to determine the most efficient approach to follow. Our goal is to streamline the process and provide cost-effective solutions that deliver precisely what you need. Our disciplined methodology helps to ensure that you receive high-quality products in all languages throughout the entire translation and localization process.
TaikaTranslations consults with you prior to beginning a localization and translation project to help identify any potential obstacles we might discover. Working together, we will establish project expectations, specifications to your products, scheduling and budgetary requirements.
Each client is assigned a dedicated, project manager who will manage your project(s) effectively and efficiently.
Your TaikaTranslations project manager will work with you to determine the optimal workflow for delivering your project on time and on budget.
We will assign a team of experts who possess all the appropriate skills for your project.
Our process allows for translation, localization, editing, and proofreading by internal staff, followed by client review and approval in the original format.
We deliver true localization
Translating text into another language is only one facet of true localization. Effective localization addresses additional components of your message such as:
- How time and date are displayed in the locale
- The proper currency or units of measure for the locale
- Whether the images are appropriate and respectful for the locale
- Replacing slang phrases/gestures
- Careful assessment of humor
- Adjusting analogies to be appropriate for the locale
- Ensuring the message triggers the same emotions/reactions/feelings
By paying attention to the smallest of details, you can avoid mistakes that can be embarrassing and even offensive to your target audience. Because TaikaTranslations linguists are native speakers of the language, into which they translate and many live in the target country, the understand - and will capture- the cultural nuances and subtleties of the intended locale.
