Robust QA for Phrase TMS

Raise the bar for the quality of your translation projects.

QA icon | Phrase
High quality, consistent translations
Make sure that your brand assets and messaging are always translated the same way. Define important brand terminology in a term base and automatically insert them into the translation. Translation memories store past translations so you can reuse them wherever possible. Customers say that reused text from translation memories result in an 80% reduction in project turnaround time.

Faster time to market
Leveraging high-quality machine translation (MT) has never been easier. Phrase's AI-powered MT autoselect finds the optimal engine for each translation job, and shows translators which segments need editing. Filter out perfect translations to reduce post-editing costs and deliver translations faster.

Tailored language quality assessment
Automated QA can easily detect errors, but LQA goes a step further to monitor translation errors and assess overall translation quality and performance. As a human review based on the DQF-MQM terminology framework, LQA provides detailed feedback to translators via an LQA scorecard. LQA is completely customizable—enterprises can tailor the severity and types of errors flagged, and implement pass/fail thresholds in line with their quality standards.

Ensure consistency
Add style guides to projects so that translators always follow your brand's preferences. Built-in previews and screenshots give translators all of the contextual information they need in real-time.

Review workflows
Depending on your translation quality requirements, you can set up advanced workflows to ensure that all of your keys have been reviewed by a second translator.

Create custom QA checks
Custom settings for QA checks allow you to specify maximum key length, so you can prevent translators from surpassing the maximum character limit. Check if translators are using placeholders correctly, and make sure that all of your brand-specific terms are being used correctly before translations are submitted. Save translations only once your QA preferences have been met.

Language quality assessment plays an important role in our QA strategy because it helps us abide by ISO 17100 standards. The exportable LQA scorecard is a standout feature and a valuable visual tool as it allows our project managers and language leads to send professional, objective feedback to freelance translators. It also helps us impartially resolve internal and external complaints.

We chose Phrase at Bohemia Interactive because it does exactly what we need, and for a fair price. We benefit mainly from the translation memory and fuzzy matches, which not only help to increase the quality and overall consistency of our output but also help us to optimize costs.
