American Language Services® (AML-Global) utilizes the most technologically advanced translation tools on the market today. We also continually monitor the technology industry to ensure that we follow any new technological developments and enhancements so that we can evaluate them and implement them as needed.
Technology tools are an enhancement, never a replacement for skilled experienced, translators, editors, DTP specialist and project managers. They are an important tool to allow us to do our job more efficiently, more consistently, faster and more cost-effectively.
We have safe, easy and secure methods to transfer projects back and forth from clients and vendors. These methods utilize highly-secure encrypted forms and secure email links that are stored on our servers and are backed up by cloud technology. They allow for the easy transfer of documents as well as for seamless transfer of large documents that don't fit in traditional email systems.
Optical Character Recognition Tools (OCR)
OCR tools allow our project managers to assess and evaluate the overall content of text in terms of word and character counts. This is particularly important when the source document is in a language other than English. These tools accurately assist us in performing word counts or character counts that are an important part of the evaluation process and allow our account representatives to accurately quote pricing and turnaround times on each project. We utilize Abbyy, Read Iris and other fine programs for this task.
Translation Memory Software (TM)
Translation memory software is an important element of the translation process. This allows us to accelerate our team's translation speed while maintaining a high level of consistency and superior quality. This is critical when we find that the same or similar content is being translated time and time again. We utilize TM tools such as SDL Trados Professional, Wordfast and others to provide all the tools needed to edit and review high quality translations, manage projects and terminology in one comprehensive powerful solution.
Preferential Use Glossaries
An important element within these various TM tools is the creation, maintenance and updating of preferential usage glossaries. Each client has their favorite, preferred ways of saying certain words, phrases or proprietary expressions. We work closely with our clients to implement their preferential word list. This means that on all future projects our client's word choice preferences are always maintained. This also is important because this allows us to complete projects faster with more consistency as well as save our clients' money on repetition discounts.
We have a proprietary developed system that allows us to safely and securely save, archive and backup all data using cloud technology. This is done by segmenting specific client projects by a number of searchable criteria.
American Language Services® is committed to utilizing the best, most effective technological tools to ensure that each of our clients receives the most consistent, cost effective and overall excellent translation services.
