Translation Verification for Your Assessments & Surveys: What, Why & How?

Speakers – Marielle Lerner, Localization Specialist | Grace DeLee, Localization Specialist | Musab Hayatli, MD-Americas

Recorded on July 22, 2020 | Duration: 45 minutes

At a previous webinar we discussed the pros and cons of using back-translation to evaluate the quality of your translated tests and questionnaires. We also introduced the translation verification method and how it can better identify and correct potential issues in the translation of your high-stakes content.

Join us this time for an exclusive, in-depth look at the translation verification process we use here at cApStAn as part of our translation quality assurance package. We presented a live demonstration of how we do what we do and why that works, including:

-What kinds of issues do we come across and tackle?

-What are the steps and what tools do we use?

-How do we make sure that you’re asking the same questions in all the languages you need?

-What is the collaboration model we follow with our clients from the assessments and surveys world?

Come and enjoy this 45-minute taster of the Whats, Whys, and Hows of the translation verification process which was followed by a live Q&A session.

More on the Translation Verification approach at cApStAn

When cApStAn Linguistic Quality Control was founded in May 2000, its core activity was to verify and validate translations produced by third parties. The founders brought in their experience from the OECD’s Programme for International Student Assessment (PISA).

Twenty years later, cApStAn offers a comprehensive range of translation quality assessment services such as expert reviews, translation verification, evaluation of machine translation quality, or final optical checks on delivery platforms.

While the cApStAn seal of approval is not a formal certification, it goes a long way in endorsing your translation procedures, confirming a translated version’s equivalence to the source and its appropriateness for the target audience.
