High Volume Translations in the Age of Automation and Cloud
In the age of globalization, language translation plays a major role to make sure that Companies’ message are delivered in the target language while retaining the meaning intended for target audience. With the advancement in the technology along with the juxtaposition of global commerce and language, a small project of 2,000 words can end up becoming complex when it has to be translated into more than 20 languages.
In short, the challenges faced by the translation companies in Canada when they have to handle voluminous translations include: high volume of texts to be translated each day, tight deadlines to be met in different time zones, handling the complex and rigid files of different expertise levels and in different languages.
· Distant Past – In the beginning of the 1990s, eCommerce emerged. In today's fast moving world, 27 years can sound like ancient history. In the yesteryears, translators overcame this problem by employing many translators who used to work at the same time, across different time zones. Agencies used to segment the files and give them to local translators to work with. But with time, when the Internet became faster, companies started struggling to keep up with the demand. Hence, automation was needed to keep track of all this.
· Recent Past – Where there is a will, there is a way! The translation agencies adopted Business Process Management – a systematic approach to make the organization's workflow more effective, more efficient and more capable of adapting to changing environments. With this, the workflow became more manageable, but the speed of the translations still left a lot to be desired.
· Present – Then came cloud technology and the API. The perfect blend of Cloud editing and API are a “powerful couple” that enhances the translation workflows.
Cloud technology enables access to translation and editing platforms, and customer’s resources from anywhere, without being tied to a physical device. It saves money not only by offering backup and storage but mainly because it allows translators to work in multiple parallel workstations.
Application Program Interface (API) is a “pipe” through which a customer can send and receive source file and translated files. This way, content can be translated dynamically.
