80 000 words into 16 languages within a month

The Challenge

Our client, an online seller of fashion clothing, accessories and textiles, needed their website translating into 16 languages within the month. The website consisted of ~ 80 000 words and the requested languages were: Belarusian, Czech, Danish, Dutch, Estonian, Finnish, Greek, Hungarian, Latvian, Lithuanian, Norwegian, Polish, Romanian, Slovak, Slovenian and Swedish.
For reasons of consistency in translation, style and terminology, only one linguist per language was assigned for the translation. However, as the daily output for a professional linguist is generally  ~ 2000 words, a total of 40 business days would normally be needed (instead of the requested 20 days) to complete this job on time.

Furthermore, extra time for exporting/importing, formatting and programming of website content was required.

The Solution

RixTrans works with one of the best website localization tools on the market, which makes website projects incredibly quick and simple to carry out.

By working with automated technology, it was possible to ease many of the typical steps involved in web globalization projects, and we were able to minimize the time needed for developers and engineers to spend on website localization for the client. Thanks to this website translation technology, it was possible to build up a Translation Memory that helped complete the job faster; by registering the repeated content, unnecessary work was avoided, which also saved the client’s budget.

The Results

By combining our language services and online content localization technology, we were able to achieve the best results for the client. RixTrans provided the client with high quality human translations powered by a robust technology. All volume was translated consistently into all 16 languages, in accordance with the client’s terminology list and guidelines. All ON TIME!
