Best Tips For Handling High-Volume Indonesian Translation Projects (P1)
High-volume Indonesian translation projects, multi-time zone collaboration, and short turnaround times; all of these factors are headaches for many localization executives and managers.
GTE Localize often handles large-scale translation projects for companies tapping into the Indonesian market. When it comes to large-scale translations, we’ve spent a lot of time figuring out what works and what doesn’t.
Here’s everything you need to know about dealing with a high-volume translation job, whether you’re a translation agency or a potential client.
How to Handle High-Volume Indonesian Translation Projects?
When dealing with a high-volume project that requires translating, we have found that it is best to:
#1 – Make a plan
Every high-volume project has its own set of possible issues and pitfalls. Some of them are very common like you’ll always need to know how to put together a team quickly and have the right workflows in place.
However, each project should be evaluated for its unique possible risks. Then you may start contingency planning, which will help you to predict potential difficulties and what will be done if they arise.
#2 – Use the right tools for your Indonesian translation projects
To speed up the translation process, most translators now employ Computer-Assisted Translation (CAT) tools.
Some will employ Content Management Systems (CMS) – or even Component Content Management Systems (CCMS) – to break down a document into even smaller, more manageable pieces for faster translation.
These technologies make it easier for translators to collaborate and for project managers to oversee the whole project, from a central location regardless of its scale. They are especially helpful for modular content like web pages.
#3 – Make sure you assign enough resources
With high-volume translation projects, you will need the collaboration of many translators who have highly relevant experience for each specific project.
At GTE Localize, we only assign linguists with a Master’s degree and/or five or more years of experience in the same industry or field as the project. Also, they need to be native speakers of the target language.
To meet the demand of larger projects, GTE Localize has a global network of talent to call on.
We know which linguists we’ve successfully worked with within the past for certain industries, project types, and language pairs. Having pre-vetted expertise like this significantly shortens the timeframe required to locate and onboard the appropriate team.
#4 – Complete pre-project work before you start
Before working on a translation, you should have the proper resources in place. Translators need to have access to any glossaries of terms, translation memories, and other reference materials. These are vital sources for a truly accurate translation.
Especially when it comes to large-scale Indonesian translation projects, any requirement to re-translate elements of a project that were worked on without full access to relevant resources will need a lot of time.
You’ll also have to deal with file preparation in order to get the project ready for many translators to work on it. Again, everything must be in place so that your translation crew can get started right away.
#5 – Use translation technology
Depending on the type of project you are working on, language technology such as CAT Tools will be a good option.
Translation technology will be useful for every project from short-lived content to complex content. Translation technology can help you handle most of the issues that involve high-volume translation projects at a fast turnaround time and cost-saving rates.
