Bubbles innovative approach to translations: ‘Translation Memory’
Since 2014, Bubbles has been translating Analox’s content worldwide into multiple languages using its network of professional, technical translators. One of the key aspects of the content provided by Analox for translation is that much of the content stays the same – when a new product is launched it may be an upgrade to a previous model, and hence, there may only be a few tweaks to the content that had been produced previously. Bubbles use special ‘translation memory’ tools to effectively memorise translations that it doesof sentences, so that when a new document needs translating Bubbles’ translators can use the translation memory tools to find and use sentences that may have been translated before.
Bubbles ‘translation memory’ tool allows Analox to reduce cost, because it does not need to pay twice for translating the same sentence, and at the same time improves translation quality by ensuring consistency, along with faster turnaround times.
