Our Manufacturing Translation Process
Quality manufacturing translations start with professional terminology management. This is the phase that Stepes helps manufacturing companies compile a list of technical terms and brand names related to their specialized field such as aerospace, automotive, or electronics. These terms are translated by our pre-approved linguists with subject matter expertise matching the customer’s technical field. Since Stepes owns one of the world’s largest terminology databases, we’re able to employ terminology mining to efficiently create the initial glossary. Effective terminology management is a highly collaborative process and Stepes has the experience and technological platform to ensure the best business outcomes. Our project team will work with the manufacturing client to review and approve the translated terms using our TWP (TermWiki Pro), the industry leading terminology system for each language.
Next, we add the approved terminology glossary to the client account on our cloud-based translation platform so the system will automatically ensure consistency and accuracy for all subsequent translation projects. For customers who have worked with other translation vendors in the past, we’ll work with the client to obtain legacy translation memory and upload the database to the client’s Stepes account. The client has an option for Stepes to review existing translation memory to ensure absolute quality.
For each of our enterprise manufacturing clients, Stepes localization project managers assign a dedicated team of professional linguists with subject matter expertise matching the company’s technical field in the required languages. These linguists will work on the customer’s translation projects on a continuous basis to ensure linguistic accuracy and consistency. Stepes has automated much of the translation quality assurance and linguistic checking process such as terminology errors, mistranslation, missing translation, linguistic consistency. The combination of machine-human solutions allows Stepes to deliver high quality manufacturing translations with the best efficiency.
