Using latest technology to save you money

Blue South uses a number of translating technologies to ensure efficiency and quality in our services.

Blue South has invested in world-class translation memory software (SDL Trados) to reduce time and cost for our clients by improving the efficiency and consistency of our human translators. Translation memory software recognizes and reuses already translated content, but does not translate the text itself and should not be confused with machine translation tools.

Another new software tool, can save your company even more money by efficiently converting your historic, existing translated material into a translation memory, a process known as alignment. At a minimum cost, existing translated material is turned into a useable translation memory to reduce costs for future translation projects.

Design support for your translations

Blue South has the technology, software and design skills to provide a complete translation service that protects the integrity of your brand, design and layout and can provide the artwork ready for print.

Historically, the importing of new words has been a time-consuming and costly process involving checking, correcting, re-checking to identify potential new errors. Our translation memory software enables us to save you significant time and money, while reducing human errors and typos.

We extract text directly from most Indesign and Framemaker artwork in a format which preserves the formatting data. After the translation, we can re-import the translated text into the artwork and it will automatically adopt the format of the original. If the new language requires a different amount of space, our designers will tweak the artwork to protect the integrity of the translation and your design. Naturally, the artwork will still be proof read by the original translator but the whole process has proven to be much faster, saving you time and money.
