DESIGN & DTP

DTP within localization process needs special causion. Considering contingencies in order to avoid errors that could happen during the compilation process is very important. We have been handling these kinds of DTP tasks quite often and knew the process very well. Once some errors are found in this stage, we track it back to the translation stage and fix it. Recently, for cost reduction purposes, non-native DTP services are often provided. But we are proud of the tasks implemented by our native Japanese operators and ensure the highest quality at the final stage of your localization process.

LINGUISTIC Q&A FOR SOFTWARE AND DOCUMENTATIONS:

For software LQA, we validate translated strings from both linguistic and functional points of view. We ditect inappropriate translations, truncations in screens, and change translations and adjust string length accordingly. We adopted virtual cloud environments in oder to handle projects which need large-scale environmental construction. For documentation LQA, we follow the documents and check consistency between UIs in the application and manuals, as well as content accuracy. During this process, erros not detected at the translation stage can still be found. We do all necessary corrections such as modifying translation, recapturing screenshots, and editing images. After fixing all these errors, we compile them again and re-implement Q&A process.

SCREEN CAPTURE:

We take screen captures, which are used in documentations, with localized build. Creating identical situations with the documents is often challenging, but we have built good reputation in this task.
