Project Challenges & Solutions
Challenges
  • Right-to-Left layout: The Right-to-Left structure of the Arabic language had an impact on the content layout.
  • High expectation: IDC asked for a team of native translators who must be familiar with NGO translation. The translated content must be accurate, fit for purpose, and ready for
    publication.
Solutions
  • Competent native linguists: We assigned a team of 3 talented native translators and editors who had experience in Arabic localizations for the task.
  • Strict quality control: We used the QC Tool – Xbench which helped us organize terminologies and detect errors easily during the NGO translation process.
