Translation Quality Assurance
In today’s world of increasingly competitive markets and quality-sensitive language-services buyers, providing an impeccable translation product is imperative to the success of the language-services provider. While there are several ways for ensuring language quality is achieved, such as employing highly professional translators, it is equally important to have a validation and verification system to remove any doubts about discrepancies. YYZ Translations offers professional translation QA services for end-clients and other language translation companies.

Translation Quality for Every Market
Regardless of the language pair, target industry and the provider, it is a must to deliver consistent translation quality. Quality should interpret into cost efficiency and must not drive or add costs to the language-services buyer.
In most cases, it is difficult to source translation QA services while the language-quality verification infrastructure is available. Scalable requirements are of key importance as they vary over time and across different languages. Often it is difficult to find or reserve in-country resources; strict deadlines and short turnaround times require accurate and careful planning, as well as the scheduling of QA staff.
Ensuring language quality requires a focused process across all projects. The concept of “one-size-fits-all” does not apply in this instance — a custom translation QA process is required while standardization of the process and metrics is a continuous challenge. Passive mitigating measures are often required besides QA and subsequent corrective measures, and the objective must always be to analyze and determine the root cause of any identified language quality issues.
Language Translation QA That Delivers
Our translation QA services have been created to instil confidence in the quality of the translated content by our clients and to provide an independent inspection or audit of the quality against established standards defined by the client or the industry. These services are designed to provide independent language translation QA inspections for translated content without taking into account the origins of the translation.
For this purpose, our translation quality assurance team operates independently of the translation production teams to perform translation QA checks and to report on how the translated content meets established quality metrics. Additionally, this team is in constant contact with clients to help develop new or analyze and advance existing, QA procedures that are most appropriate for client-specific requirements.
Whether you are thinking of outsourcing your QA processes due to increasing volumes, lack internal resources or as a result of both, our independent YLQV team gives you the confidence that we can control language quality effectively and as a managed process.
Trust But Verify
Our editors are senior level linguists who understand the importance of final quality texts for your industry and business. Our editing service gives you the confident that your final audience will be happy reading a text that is error-free and appeals to their taste and interest, which was the target of the original text.
