Smartling Launches Big Data Approach to Translation Quality Management

Aug 24, 2017

Smartlinga translation technology and service provider, now offers a fully-automated, data-driven approach to measuring translation quality across localized content. Smarting says its Quality Confidence Score (QCS), a proprietary machine-learning algorithm that aggregates data gathered from billions of translated words processed by Smartling’s platform, is a milestone for the translation industry, leveraging data and machine learning to predict and improve translation quality.

Unlike manual, retroactive, error-counting scorecards, Smartling’s QCS capabilities move translation quality and measurement upstream to a predictive approach based on the data collected, then analyzed and applied using machine learning algorithms built into the Smartling translation management platform. This significantly reduces translation risks and rework while saving global brands time and money.
