Overview

Professional translation is a complex process that usually involves collaboration of multiple people. The course will show you how to build this process correctly: analyze content, determine requirements and risks, select appropriate jobs and vendors, evaluate translation quality.

You will know why user manuals should not be translated in the same way as you would translate promotional or legal documents. You will see why every content type requires a special translation approach and learn to prioritize quality blocks during project planning. This course will also teach you to select translators and editors based on the content analysis, so your projects could always stay within budget and deadlines.

This course is based on the Palex’s corporate educational program. Since 2014, it has already helped us train dozens of localization and translation quality managers for our company. Now we want to share these knowledge and experience with the entire community of the translation industry.

Along with the theoretical knowledge, you will also get skills that can be applied to your work right away. All the lectures are accompanied with tests that will help you understand the topics, and every module comes with a practical exercise that is based on the real-world situation.

The aim of the course is to present the expertise of Palex in the field of localization and translation, packaging the corporate training program into an online format.

    Hi! This is Mr. ALOULE Kossi, a Freelance Translator. I took this course almost three months ago. The study was worth my time and energy and money. It has indeed added a feather to my numerous skills and credentials. My translation business has boomed. Locating clients has become easy for me and those working with me. Translation Quality Management course is a course worth going through. You will never regret it if you do.
    Thank you.

    I had to request a refund for this course because the assignment quizzes were very poorly made and passing was literally impossible. I am a translation professional and, while many of the ideas presented in this course are valid and it offers a rather complete general training program for project managers, I strongly discourage pursuing the paid certificate. Only go for the paid certificate if:

    a) you plan to apply for a position as a translation project manager, or

    b) you are interested in Verifika, the proprietary translation QA software of the company issuing this course.
