Project Challenges & Solutions
Challenges
  • Complex project: The project involved a full localization process (Preparation, translation, editing, proofreading, LQA, DTP, LSO, finalization) and multiple language pairs. Thus, our team needed to handle many steps.
  • User interface elements: The medical website consisted of many user interface strings and buttons that had limited character length.
Solutions
  • The best team of linguists: We created a term base for each language pair and updated the file after each project to ensure terminology consistency. Before delivery of the translation, we sent the term list to Abbott for pre-approval so that the translation for terminologies aligned with its preference.
  • Accurate translations with perfect character length: Our project managers worked with the translators to ensure that the translations were short and concise enough to get proper displays while delivering the intended meanings of the source text.
