Translation Quality Measurement in Practice

You can download our latest presentation from our website
We gave the presentation on Saturday at the 46th ATA Conference, in Seattler.
The presentation went well: I was nervous, and I think it showed, but Franco handled his part with ease, and I think that there was a fair amount of interest.

Translation Quality Measurement in Practice

This is an abstract for the presentation we plan to give at the next ATA conference.

In previous years, we proposed a theoretical framework for assessing and measuring translation quality, explaining how the Translation Quality Index (TQI) can be a reliable indicator of translation quality and serve as the foundation for process improvement.
This year we will show how we have turned our theory into practice. In particular, we'll discuss how translation quality measurement is being implemented worldwide at a leading translation company, and we'll share our experience and real-life examples.

The presentation will include a demonstration of tools and services that they developed to help measure translation quality.
