Optimizing processes and workflow design
For many organizations, the translation process is both complex and time-consuming, with documents shared, stored, modified and verified by a number of teams. Our process optimization services can help to organize this into a more cost-effective and efficient process by streamlining and harmonizing workflows, automating tasks and delivering a more efficient interface between your business, its partners and clients.
Our process optimization experts can evaluate every task from file handling and data engineering to translation modification and verification, to propose a seamless translation process from source material through to the final product; or simply examine particular tasks or transitions to be improved.
Our process optimization services will:
- Reduce repetitive manual tasks
- Maximize effectiveness of current systems
- Improve processes through tried and tested technologies
- Offer both immediate impact and long-term solutions

Our process optimization services
We support our clients at all levels of innovation:
Workflow assessment and consulting
We assess the existing environment, systems and workflows to uncover new automation opportunities and share our experience and best practice. This includes optimizing processes through advanced tool configuration and introducing new programmes, methods and custom development.
Custom development: plugins
Using APIs to extent system functionality.
Custom development: connectors
Using web services to connect client and provider systems and networks for an improved file sharing experience.
Custom development: interfaces
To create direct connections between independent systems for data synchronization.
Custom development: scripts and macros
To support manual tasks through short but effective code in popular editors like Excel, Word or Notepad++, mail applications like Outlook and database queries through SQL and web technologies.
We stay in contact and share new findings that might improve existing workflows and accelerate the translation process.
