What has to be checked?
PRODOC has already done the following checks
- Check that numbers and tags in source and target segment match
- Check that terms from term bases are used appropriately
- Check that the content of the source text is correctly translated
What PRODOC cannot check
- Check whether the translation has the wording you want to use for your target group
Checks before making a correction
Added/reduced content for your country
Warning - translations are stored in a Translation Memory
Translations are stored sentence by sentence in the Translation Memory.
Before you enter a correction, check whether the changed sentence still is a possible translation of the source text.
Otherwise the Translation Memory will be made useless.
If a complete sentence does not seem to make sense for you in your market and you want it removed, or if you want to insert information that is not given in the source text:
- Enter a comment using the
PRODOC will provide a list that contains these comments together with the translated document.
The marketing department of your headquarters can then pass on this information to the printing agency for manual insertion/removal of your text before printing.
Consistency with previous translations and the terminology
Translation results pane (red rectangle in the screenshot above) to check whether previous translations of similar texts exist.
This is the case when more than one red entry exists.
Since you are reviewing text that has already been confirmed, the first red entry always shows the translation of the current segment.
- Single-click on the second or third entry and have a look at the existing and approved translations
- Single-click on the blue terminology entries and check how the source text terms should be translated
In the example above the sentence
"Umfangreiches Produktportfolio speziell für die Verpackungsindustrie"
has already been translated and approved as
"Gamme étendue de produits conçus spécialement pour l'industrie de l'emballage"
- see screenshot below:
The only word that has been changed in the current text is "Intralogistik" instead of "Verpackungsindustrie".
For the new word "Intralogistik" the term "intralogistique" is defined in the term base and has been used correctly in the translation.
There should not be any need to change the translation.
- Try to keep the current translation consistent with already approved translations.
