1. Please describe your translation quality verification process.
Golden View's translation QA process can be summarized as follows:
1) Quality translation: Select the optimum translation team.
2) Strict reviewing: In-house reviewers check the translation 100%, including correction of grammar mistakes, typos, inconsistency, readabilities etc.
3) Proofread: PDF proofreading after
4) PM sampling checking: Project managers will check the translation quality before delivery. And will arrange corrections if needed.

2. How do you ensure consistency?
To keep good consistency, we usually do the following:
1) Create and maintain glossary.
2) Share the same and latest TM.
3) Use CAT tools like Trados etc..
4) Whether small or large projects, we always try to limit the number of reviewers at least to keep good
5) If more than 1 reviewers needed, we will arrange 1 major reviewer plus minor reviewers. The major
  reviewer will manage and control the consistency of the whole project.

So we can keep good consistent among GUI, online help and manuals; among a translation team with more than 1 translators and reviewers; between new version and previous versions.

information about translators and reviewers from PM dept. and Trans dept.. It keeps updated with the latest evaluation comments to translators. Each translator is rated a professional level.
