Revisions and Quality Assurance

When we talk about translation revision, here at Certify Traduzioni we mean quality assurance of the translation.

With quality assurance of a translation (abbreviated QA), we indicate the post-translation activities and interventions aimed at ensuring the best quality and accuracy of a translation on all linguistic levels. These interventions include grammatical, orthographic and syntactic corrections (proofreading), and the revision of form and content and optimization of the text through the improvement of the lexical and possibly stylistic choices of a translation draft. In the case of legal translations, the QA consists of correcting and revising the translation to be certified. In the case of technical or commercial translations, it may also include a DTP (Desktop Publishing) service, aimed at formatting and arranging the text, fixing its layout and adding images or graphics to the text, before its online or print publication.

The nature and level of revision or proofreading interventions that a translation may need are examined through a careful analysis of the translation 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 determined.

Revisions and quality assurance are usually required before proceeding with the certification of sworn translations, to ensure that legal or technical translations are adequately accurate and linguistically compliant with their original. If after the analysis of the translation, this one appears to be complete and adequately accurate and appropriate to its certification, no modification will be necessary and no revision service will be required.
