Automated file conversion & processing solutions

At translate plus we pride ourselves on being able localise content in any file format, applying translation memory technology wherever possible, to ensure our clients receive the most consistently high quality as part of the fastest and most cost-effective process.

Our unique file conversion tool, processor plus allows us to take a complex file format, which could be unique to a specific customer, and automatically prepare it for translation. This preparation process typically involves protecting certain tags, attributes, codes, ID numbers or other sequences of text which exist in the file that should not be localised, so that the translator can focus only on the text which needs to be translated, giving you a distinctive creative translation.

By using processor plus and our related file conversion technologies, we are therefore able to speed up the translation process, by avoiding time-consuming manual work to mark sections of text as translatable or not-translatable, in a safe and repeatable process which frees up more time for translation and quality-checking.

What our processing solutions include

Our processing solutions can also therefore prevent our translators from needing to worry about navigating around angled brackets, odd-looking sequences of text or programming code – which removes the risk of our clients’ files becoming “broken” during translation, and allows better translation memory matching, in turn leading to lower costs and better quality.

For ongoing translation projects, such as regular updates to website or database content, we can use our file conversion tools to integrate these automated steps into a wider workflow – for example, automatically pre-processing an incoming XML file on receipt of a request via our i plus Web Service, which is something we do for clients such as Jabra and Kambi on a daily basis, saving hours of administration and IT man-power.

Moreover, to offer a truly creative translation we’ve developed apps like CAD plus, to help our clients localise file formats which traditional translation memory providers view as “less important”, to accompany our automated file processing tool, processor plus.
