Translation and Localization

Through many years of experience in creating manuals, YAMAGATA INTECH has developed translation skills that allow us to handle translations in a variety of fields. Concerning translations, if the objective changes, the translators also change, and the translation style must also change. Making use of our network of overseas locations, our company supports more than 100 languages. And with the help of tools and systems provided by our development department, we can provide the best solutions for meeting your company's goals.

Translation Work Flow

A translation project can be costly and work intensive when making arrangements and reviews to ensure conformity to the detailed requirements of the company and the customs of the region for which it is intended. However, by converting this translation process into a system, high quality results can be attained even with a limited amount of time. It allows for the production of consistent localizations through all stages of planning, specifications confirmation, and manual development.

QA Distiller: Translation Tool™

We apply proprietary and self-developed tools into the flow of translation work for shorter lead time and improved overall operating efficiency. QA Distiller™ is a tool that was developed by YEU (YAMAGATA EUROPE), a part of the YAMAGATA Group, to supplement human proofreading and reviewing for enhanced quality control. Its primary functions are to check for missing translation and garbled text and to ensure uniformity in formatting (colons, periods, parenthesis, quotation marks), conformity with the glossary, and correct numerical values. It is currently being used by a large number of translation companies.
