Quality Testing for Linguists– We have a rigorous quality assurance testing process for linguists that makes all the difference.
As a result, only top linguists enter our team.
Our Quality Testing system for Linguists ensures that out of the 5000 translators in our database, only 550 are active collaborators, meaning that 1 in 10 translators passes our rigorous screening process and is selected to work on your projects.
All our linguists (translators, editors, proofreaders, Subject Matter Experts) pass through a rigorous testing process before and after they are approved to join Paspartu. First, we have set up a Review Based Rating system. Each linguist gets reviewed for every 3000 translated words. The review is conducted for every language pair separately. The Review System allows for the specific resource to be re-evaluated based on the latest projects completed and get rated on predefined performance criteria. Examples of the criteria which are evaluated: punctuation, spelling, grammar, style, format, handling terminology, complying with instructions and deadline etc. Thus each linguist is continually assessed and his/her participation in future translation or localization projects will be decided based on the previous feedback and score achieved.
This first step assures that our linguists are always kept informed on their performance for specific projects, and involved with latest language developments, industry terminology, software innovations and tools in order to continue to participate in our demanding translation projects.
The second step is Customer Feedback. Each linguist is assessed based on the customer feedback on the work produced. We closely monitor feedback ratings on translations, which allow us to flag issues and spot and correct linguist problems in due time.
Our third and final step on testing our resources with respect to their quality performance is Random Spot Checks through our Quality Cross Check platform. Our Quality Assurance Managers perform random job checks. They have organized and planned a routine to randomly check projects on all our translations by involving external native translators and terminologists to check and appraise our own.
The results of all of the above steps produce a Measure Point System which shows exact performance levels of each one of our linguists. Below you can view the performance of our translators (per industry/ specialism) according to our internal criteria as well as the industry standards (LISA):
