About our Technology
Like most industries, technology has really changed the way we do business. Here is a snapshot of how we utilize technology to drive efficiencies and pass along savings to our customers.
Computer-assisted Technology (CAT) Tools – these leverage and build memories and client glossaries/terms. This means an ever-growing database of terms to drive reuse and lower costs. We utilize the SDL Trados suite of tools - an undisputed industry leader - to perform these tasks as well as integrate with our workflow platform (discussed below).
Workflow Automation: In early 2015, Foreign Translations invested in another industry leading tool to manage our workflow. We utilize XTRF, a workflow platform which not only integrates with our CAT tools, but also seamlessly moves jobs from start to finish. We also provide clients a simple web page (portal) where they can view the jobs, job history and more - anytime!
Cloud-based solutions: All of our technology systems are cloud-based and hosted with industry leading providers. This means we (and you!) never have to worry about backups, managing servers and other "back office" technical complexities.
