Translation GALA 2019

5 best practices to improve quality of technical documents translation

"If you’re entering new global markets or are trying to maintain market share in your existing markets, translation quality can’t suffer or you might risk losing customers". We all agree, right? 

We in AP PORTUGAL - Tech Language Solutions take very seriously the idea that the best is always the only option, the quality of translation can never be undervalued, especially in a time when Machine Translation simply requires the addition of a Google translation plugin to the website.

However, for those clients that really demand a quality translation we cannot give anything less than the best. In that sense AP PORTUGAL considers quite interesting the publication from Globalization & Localization Association (GALA) that refers to the necessary steps to improve the quality of technical documents translation. It is all in “Technical Document Translation: 5 Ways to Improve Quality”.


Here are five ways you can improve the quality of your technical translations:

  1. Write with Localization in mind
  2. Choose the right translators
  3. Create a glossary of terms
  4. Use a translation memory to increase consistency
  5. Include QA and proofreading cycles
