We hire hundreds and thousands of professional French translators. We continuously rate and rank them so that the good ones are promoted and the bad ones are screened out, through our unique Translia Translator Rank™ system.
16. Quality by innovation
Translia is the leader in collaborative translation technology. The unique CollabTrans™ technology gives our translators a great advantage in quality assurance. For example, multiple translators can work on the same job at the same time and they can communicate with each other easily to resolve any potential translation issue.
17. Translating, editing, and proofreading
Translia delivers superior quality through its advanced process management. We apply translating (T), editing (E) and proofreading (P) to each sentence and make it our standard translation process. In the language industry, such a process is called TEP or T/E/P.
18. Superior quality by Alternating TEP™
We have surpassed most competitors with our TEP service. Next we leave all of them far behind with our unique Alternating TEP technique: any two continuous processes are taken by different translators. For example, if translator A performs a translating task, then the following editing task must be taken by a different translator, B. Alternating TEP is the standard translation process on Translia.
Well, we talk much about quality assurance but how can you know we walk as we talk? We apply TEProof™ and some other unique translation technologies to you with the evidence ("proof") for our quality assurance. Again, all of the following features are only available on Translia!
19. Total transparency
As a Translia client, you can see the progress of your job when our translators are working. A percentage number will be shown to indicate the overall progress. You can also see who is doing what so that you know the jobs are in the right process according to the service level you choose.
20. Total process tracing
We make our work traceable by recording who edits what and when for each sentence of each job. That ensures all translators are careful with their jobs because we can easily trace back and find out who made the mistakes.
21. Live preview of translation
When our translators are working, you can see not only the overall progress but also the in-progress translations. That means you may give early feedback to translators. You can even preview the partially translated target files at any time, without waiting until the final delivery. Only Translia can present you with such transparency and convenience!
We are French translation expert!
22. Two French languages
You might be aware there are two French languages - French for France and France Canada. For each language we use only translators whose mother tongues match. You can, and you should choose the right French language based on your target audience. For example, if you translate for the Canada market, choose French (Canada) from the target language list when you request a quote. Choose French (France) for other markets.
23. To or from French
In addition to English-French translation services, we offer French-English translation too. Furthermore, you can use our services to translate from French into a couple of major languages such as Spanish, German, and Italian.
Communication for even better French translation
24. Direct communication with translators
The traditional translation agencies don't want clients to communicate with translators directly because they are fear the clients may contact the translators next time. However that damages translation quality. We enable direct communication among client and translators. Doing so translators can understand the client requirements in more details and thus deliver better translation for the purpose. To this end, Translia is one of the leading translation service providers, if not the only, that allow customers to communicate with translators directly.
25. Translation instructions
You are expected to provide instructions to translators before they start working on your jobs. You should describe where and how the translations will be used and who will be the target audience. This information is key to the usability of translation. It’s so important that we will not let you kick off the job unless you fill out the instructions.
26. Job comments
With Job comments you can communicate with the translators who work on your jobs directly. You may want to provide more information about your projects. Translators may also need certain requirements to be clarified further. You can even dialogue with translators as you do in a Web forum. Such ability ensures the messages from/to translators will never be delayed or lost.
27. Keep your email private
We will give you an email notification when translators post questions for your response. You don't need to stay on Translia or keep watching the job comments. You don't need to provide your email address either. Just post the comments and our system will send the email. We will never disclose your email address to translators.
Save without sacrificing quality
In addition to saving with our best prices, you can further save money on translation with the following Translia features. Many of them are ONLY available on Translia!
28. Volume discounts
