Translation Metrics 101: Why Tracking Your Translations Will Make Your Job Easier

Translations are no easy task. In fact, they are considered by many in the technical writing community to be a “daily battle.” Because there is no real clarity in the translation process, your hard work (in the form of technical content) is tossed over the fence, and you are left in the dark hoping for the best results. This is referred to as “the black hole of translations” by some technical communications professionals. But how can your Technical communications team simplify this process in a way that provides clarity and continuous process improvement? By tracking each stage of the translation process with comprehensive metrics.

You can forget about “the black hole of translations” and measure the content quality after the translations are completed and keep your content quality consistent, regardless of its final geographic location.

This webinar will provide actionable details on:

  • specific translation metrics to track
  • how to track them
  • how and when to analyze the data to clarify and simplify the process
  • how and when to analyze the data to improve process efficiency
