Translation as an engineering-driven process

FG decides for across as technology platform

(PresseBox) (SANTA CLARA/KARLSBAD, ) FG, a leading Language Service Provider, announced a strategic partnership with across Systems and will be using across Language Server as a production platform.

Headquartered in Santa Clara, California, FG provides fully integrated services and solutions to produce high-quality localized documentation, software, and services. FG prepares its clients' products for export across cultures, geographic regions, languages, and markets.

Holding quality as their primary priority, FG implements a thorough Quality Assurance cycle. This cycle is performed at the hands of translators, reviewers, proofreaders, lexicographers, linguists, and localization engineers; all of which possess the technical and linguistic expertise necessary to carry out virtually any type of translation project regardless of content complexity or rarity of language combination.

FG’s business model focuses on consolidating the local and global translations production. This demands centralized project management, workflow and quality control in the FG headquarters and subsidiaries in Asia and Europe.

FG’s capabilities in executing these complex processes have been augmented with help of the across Language Server Technology. This enables smooth transfer and preparation of the customer data to be translated, and direct distribution to translators and editors. All parties have access to a central Translation Memory and Terminology system.

Both the availability of consistent data as well as integrated workflow control ensures maximum translation quality. By controlling workflow, the editing and release steps are set components in the translation process.

Although across currently captures the international markets and launches operations worldwide, FG acknowledges its dominance as one of the most preferred translation platforms in Europe. For this and the many other benefits the across Language Server has to offer, FG’s management team expresses their explicit satisfaction in adding across to their prestigious lists of partners.

FG envisions this affiliation as an opportunity to further penetrate the ever-growing globalization market in Europe with a specific focus on countries like Germany with their export-oriented industries. This collaboration will improve FG’s previously competent performance granting greater flexibility in dealing with existing clients and opening new frontiers for events to come.

Owing to this fortunate event, industrial leaders using the across Language Server will be given a better opportunity to experience FG’s premium quality services first hand. This will grant them access to many of the functions FG provides its existing clients with the enhanced capabilities of the across platform.

"For us translation is a process. The control of this process and the use of the appropriate technology is part of the core capabilities of FG," announces Hisham Haggag, the acting Managing Director responsible for the Corporate Strategy. "The across Language Server provides us with the suitable software platform.”

Niko Henschen, Managing Director of across Systems, adds: "After the successful market introduction of across in Europe we are excited to add FG, one of the leading US language service providers, to our clients. We are sure that smooth systems integration and continuous processes in the translation industry are future deciding success factors.”
