Revisions and Quality Assurance

Quality Assurance or QA of a translation, refers to the set of post-translation interventions aimed at ensuring the best quality and accuracy of the translation on all language levels. These interventions may concern only grammatical, spelling and syntactical corrections (known as proofreading), or in a both linguistic and content revision (or editing), consisting in the optimization of the text through the improvement of lexical and possibly stylistic choices of a draft translation.

In the case of legal or technical translations, the QA is mainly limited to proofreading or post-editing.

In the case of web and marketing content translation, it may also involve any DTP (Desktop Publishing) activities, aimed at the reproducing the layout web pages or files containing pictures, graphs or other figurative elements within the text, before their publication.

The nature and extent of the revision interventions that a translation may require are established through a careful analysis of the translation or text to be revised. Following the preparation of a report on the status of the translation, the revision intervention to be carried out on the translation is set.

Revisions and quality assurance are required before proceeding with translation certifications, in order to ensure that the translation is adequately accurate and linguistically compliant with its original. If the analysis shows that the translation is complete and adequately accurate, no modification will be necessary and no revision service will be carried out.
