Translation Vendor Selections

Server Based Fully Automated Project Workflow
- Integration of the end-client online portal project
- CAT tool selection for translation/review
- Integration of customers ERP system
- User interface for the PM to perform tasks and monitor the progress
The automation system we created is based on a series of server-based applications that run on predetermined times and work with one another, exchanging information through a server database; and a client-side application through which the PMs monitor progress, receive decision-making data and perform the needed actions.
Our system is supported by a sophisticated mechanism for recovering from errors or, if recovery is not possible, inform the relevant per issue person for the needed actions (the customer PMs, the customer IT or the TMServe developers).
Cloud Based Fully Automated Translation Workflow.
- E-mail based workflow from mails received/send by end-client, PMs, translators and reviewers
- Integration with end-client portal for accepting jobs, downloading files etc.
- Automated PM, translator, reviewer invitation, acceptance and assignment
- Full projects status, financial and work progress monitoring
The project implemented cloud-based technologies allowing for project monitoring from inside and outside the company without remote login or access to the company network.
Each step is triggered by an email and recorded in the cloud-based spreadsheet together with the progress and any encountered issues. The PM is also informed via email in the cases that action must be taken e.g. there is no available translator or reviewer for a project, or that an error has occurred that requires an action. Critical errors are reported to TMServe as well.
