At McFelder Translations we believe in quality. Therefore, these are the following standards we adhere to when producing a translation so we can offer you the highest quality service
We at McFelder Translations believe human translation to be the best way to communicate your message across language barriers. Hence, we use the latest version of SDL Trados Studio.
It is a translation technology that enables the Project Manager to create Translation Memories for each client.
This is not a machine translation tool but a CAT (Computer Assisted Translation) tool which helps human translators during the translation process by making a database with previously accepted translations available to them. Meaning the translation produced is accurate in terms of customs and culture.
Incorporating these factors into our translation process, means we only offer you linguistically, culturally and industry accurate translations.
“McFelder has been supplying Howden with translation services for around 11 years, and in particular, my team, Global Communications, for 4 years. In Howden we have 11 languages globally. I have always found the McFelder team to be quick to respond, knowledgeable, practical, proactive and with great attention to detail. They take time to understand my objectives and suggest great solutions to ensure I get what I need – feedback from our 6000 associates is very good.”
Best price guaranteed
Offering your company, the best price we can is our priority. These are some of the key factors we look at for each assignment to calculate the most economic price for you:
Our CAT technology allows us to create and build client specific Translation Memories (TMs) which are used to maintain coherent terminology as well as to recycle previously translated text segments. Consequently, our clients receive discounted costs based on any repeated segments that may exist. The higher percentage of repeated text will have a greater impact on the final price for larger texts or for a larger number of documents.
Therefore, your company will not only benefit from a reduced fee but also the added quality control aspect of the coherence of terminology and style.
“Each time we have used McFelder’s the quality of service, competitive pricing and timescale have been excellent.”
Our vendor management team manages an extensive database of translators, editing and adding translators who we feel are the most technical and specialist to produce outstanding work. We have a comprehensive screening process in which our translators must adhere to. These requirements include:
Our ISO accredited translation workflows have been developed in association with the project management and vendor management functions guaranteeing high quality translations but cost effective.
By selecting the best qualified translators to work on your text alongside the technical experts, McFelder Translations delivers a skilfully produced translation on time and on budget.
“Our texts tend to be very technical. Our terminology is difficult to translate and has always required our final revision. For this reason, we have tried many translation agencies. McFelder translated our texts as if it had been done by an in-house engineer based in our international department. Excellent. We will use them again.”
Every project is treated as confidential. Everyone, if they are McFelder Translations staff or external collaborators, signs a confidentiality agreement to guarantee maximum data protection to protect the nature of each document. In certain cases, we work additionally with client NDAs (Non-Disclosure Agreements) as well.
“I had tried another translation company but many of our distributors complained that the translations were so poor they needed to be completely re-written. I had the same translations done again by McFelder Translations and the process went much smoother and the distributors were more than satisfied with the results. The team at McFelder Translations were also very quick and answered any queries I had clearly and professionally. They also followed up after delivery of the translations indicating they take pride in providing quality translation services.”
