ur client sends a request. Based on the information
supplied global dtp evaluates the source material and prepares
an estimate. The request is registered into our planning.
Supplied ﬁles and information are examined by a Project
Manager. We are then able to determine the time and work
scope necessary for the production and costs based on our
experience. The client issues preliminary purchase order to
conﬁrm the work scope. Our analysis could also reveal possible
issues that would be encountered during the production. Any
possible issues are always discussed with the client.
Some projects are received at a stage before translation. Source
ﬁles need to be prepared for translators. We analyze supplied
ﬁles, check with the client what exactly needs to be localized
and prepare translation kit. Body texts, graphics, special text
fragments are all gathered together for translation.
A project in production is assigned to a Project Manager. He or
she is responsible for successful and timely execution of project
workﬂow, communicates with the client and assigns individual
project tasks to our staff.
Translated ﬁles are processed in DTP 1 stage. Depending on the
form of expected feedback from the client, DTP 1 stage can be
either full or draft DTP.
If the client intends to implement ﬁrst language feedback into his
TM database and to send us newly translated ﬁles, we just do
draft DTP to allow translators to perform their language review.
Full DTP is moved to second stage.
Full DTP consists of application of language speciﬁcations
and DTP rules on the project documents by a DTP operator.
Language speciﬁcations can be either supplied by the client
in project instructions or general rules available. Reviewed
documents are printed to ﬁnal format and compared to source
ﬁnal or reference output in detail. After this format check, ﬁles
are handed over our internal QA. Files are prepared for client’s
review after internal QA.
The client proceeds with language and DTP review in one or
two rounds. All comments are implemented by a DTP operator,
the implementation is checked by independent reviewer. The
output is sent to the client for approval. Other feedback or
document updates follow similar process.
Once the ﬁles are approved for ﬁnal delivery by the client and
no further changes are expected, ﬁnal output is prepared and
all project ﬁles are delivered to the client. Project Manager then
reports to the client the ﬁnal costs on the project and receives
Final delivery can be followed by discussion with the client
about the project speciﬁcs to optimize the process in the future.
