Linguistic Quality Assessment (LQA) is a key step in a successful translation project. It brings about numerous benefits for your translation:
- The criteria set before the project function as a checklist to make sure you don’t miss any possible mistakes during the evaluation process. This contributes directly to the final quality of the translation in terms of accuracy and consistency.
- This process allows linguists to review and correct their translations quickly with recommendations from the reviewers and identify the areas that need improvement or additional training for future projects.
- The LQA step also plays an important role in controlling the service quality of the translation vendors you are working with. By quantifying the translation quality, you can easily check whether the services they provide meet your expectation or not.
