KERN uses advanced translation memory systems such as across, Trados, Déjà Vu, and Transit to streamline the translation process, ensure maximum terminological consistency, and improve quality assurance. By establishing databases and translation memories, we are able to make full use of specialized vocabulary, terminology, and idioms and phrases compiled from existing translations.
Fundamental to the use of a translation memory system is that the texts requiring translation are available in an editable electronic format. The team at KERN will then prepare the documents for use with a translation memory system and finalize the documents accordingly.
Our team would be more than happy to perform an alignment on material previously translated without the use of a translation memory system. The aim of this alignment is to develop a translation memory database for future translation projects and to increase consistency with documents still requiring translation.
Using translation memory systems in the different departments of a company promotes the development of consistent company-specific language. This will significantly strengthen your company’s internal and external corporate image, guaranteeing the preservation of your corporate identity.
In addition to aiding the development of consistent corporate language, translation memory systems help develop and consolidate the knowledge of individual employees.
Translation memory systems allow company-specific expressions and terminology to be used throughout many different types of documents. In many cases you will require your international branches or employees to check and approve the translation. In order to simplify their task, it is
advantageous to have them participate in the formation of a translation memory database from the outset.
When it is necessary to employ several translators or edit a variety of documents, using a translation memory system ensures that the translations will be phrased in a uniform manner. Moreover, it means translations no longer need to be checked for basic linguistic consistency, saving you both time and money.
Improvements in the translation process save time for all participants. It allows for a more efficient preparation of the documentation needed for a product launch. KERN would be happy to provide you with an outline of the use of translation memory systems to help improve the translation process in your company.
