How do you know that our translations are accurate and of professional quality if you don’t read the language?

Our in-house talent team recruit the best linguists and ensures they are all tested so that their translations skills and experience are proven.

Our in-house review team works closely with our translators, providing regular feedback to ensure the delivery of premium quality translations as standard. This is an expectation with a tricky language like German; perfection is important.

German translations with secondary revision by a second linguist are also covered by ISO17100 – the translation management standard.

What do we translate into and from German?

Technical documents, including technical marketing materials and legal and regulatory documents.

With experience built up over many years, it’s likely that we have translated most technical documents.

Case study

One of our large medical device clients required translation of their e-learning training content aimed at German employees. This included a voice-over. Initially, we reviewed the English content and adapted it for translation, with the help of the client, to ensure that when translated, it was suitable for a German audience.

The client selected our ‘use it‘ service*. After signing off the translations, and based on the client brief, we provided a selection of professional German voices for the client to choose from.

This voice-over was to be overlaid over the e-learning module. Due to the success of the project, the client decided that ALM’s established workflow would work well with the same content in Spanish, Italian, French and Portuguese.

How did we achieve this within budget?

  • We used our bespoke MT technical and medical engines to reduce costs.
  • We created a client-specific glossary to ensure correct terminology throughout.
  • Used translation Memory to offer further cost savings now and in the future, and to maintain consistency.
  • Used our team of qualified translation revisers to carry out a full QA check on all translated content.

Are you buying the right service?

Some documents are for information only, and others require a secondary review or even copywriting.

We don’t just provide translations. We also offer subtitling, voice-overs, transcription services, proof-reading, editing and transcreation.
