Our Proprietary Advantage
At Global Accent, we have been refining our quality process for 25 years. We are active members of the American Translators Association and regularly attend their conferences to keep our finger on the pulse of the latest industry trends and technological advancements. We have customized our process to specifically fit the needs of the industries we work in. For example, we have different QA process offerings for market research surveys vs. market research open end/internal data translation. This helps our clients achieve their timing and cost goals. Our standard full QA process is as follows:
Translation by one linguist > Editing by a second (independent) linguist > Translator edit review and proofread > Internal QA formatting check > Delivery
Our process of linguist selection is, of course, equally important. We work with the best and brightest translators and strive to keep our overhead costs low so that our clients are paying for the best linguists available today. We also incorporate the latest CAT tool technology to keep our costs down and pass those savings on to our clients. All of our linguists are native speakers of the target language for each project, and we primarily work with linguists who have post-graduate degrees in linguistics or in their language combination. We also organize our linguists by subject matter to make sure they are the best subject matter fit for the projects we send their way. In addition, we use a proprietary pre-translation checklist to work with our clients to make sure that common translation project pitfalls are avoided before they can happen.
Our primary goal is to be agile and flexible to meet the quality, timing, and cost needs of our clients because each one is different.
To use strong relationships and process simplicity to build trust in providing the highest quality language services and prompt timing at a fair price, without being wasteful or damaging the planet.
Interpersonal relationships are at the heart of our business, from working pragmatically together as a team, to building galvanized relationships with our vendors, to fostering mutually beneficial relationships with our clients. Due to the importance of trust in our field, we feel that the constant endeavor to optimize these relationships through communication and respect is the key to providing the best final product. Secondly, persistently striving to improve our efficiency and to simplify our systems through the use of new technology and process improvement positively impacts our clients’ experience. Within the organization, our focus is on creating a flexible work experience that fits our employees’ personal goals and lifestyles. On top of our clients’ individual project needs, we recognize the fact that our organization could not exist without taking resources from the Earth and we are therefore required to act responsibly to ensure the future of the planet and our business.
