Reorganisation and Computerization Study
- Organization, processes and operations documentation
- Business functions evaluation and problem areas identification
- Suggestions to remedy problems and optimize effectiveness
- Proposals for computerization and process automations
A major consulting project we carried out was the organization and computerization study of a major translation company. The project involved interviews with all key personnel and data collection, full description and evaluation of the current status, identification of problems and inefficiencies for each department and activity and proposals for the resolution of issues, the optimization of operations and the use of available or custom-made software. Following our suggestions, the client enjoyed:
- Operational improvements by implementing proposed actions;
- Efficiencies through custom personnel training;
- Time and cost savings through correct use of CAT tools;
- Less errors and time savings through use of PM tools and automations.
Localization Project Setup
- Project planning and scheduling
- Production processes and tools setup
- Localization team organization and roles
- Project progress monitoring (quality, time and cost)
This project involved the first time set up of a major long-term localization project that involved software, help, doc and marketing material localization and testing. We assisted in risk assessment, the process and tools setup, the translator, reviewer and tester selection, in the project planning and scheduling, and in the setup of processes to monitor project progress and quality, cost and time. We were also involved in the PM/translation/review/testing team training in the processes and tools to be used as well as the SW that was to be localized. Finally, we suggested and developed SW for integrating the different tools used and assist in the PM work and the monitoring of the project progress. As a result, the project was a great success with:
- Smooth running for the duration of the project;
- Timely feedback on quality, cost and time;
- Savings in PM and production time;
- A very happy client and end-client.
