All of these additional services can be adjusted to suit the respective profile and individual needs of the client.

Certified security and quality in every area

For us, the security and quality of our translation services take top priority, starting from the use of professional translators, project managers, desktop publishing and translation memories, all the way to database integration – each and every one of our service components is regularly reviewed for compliance with international processes and policies, redesigned and certified by independent auditors, and therefore an excellent facilitator for the success of even the most complex translation projects. Furthermore, all certified native-speaker translators at tolingo aren’t just highly trained in terms of linguistic competence in their source and target languages, but also subject to strict testing processes regarding their expertise before we accept them to our network of more than 6,000 specialist translators around the world.

For visibility without borders

For an SEO translation, important keywords from the source text are localised in such a way that the translation achieves the most results or search hits in the leading search engine in the target country. The client usually provides a list of keywords for this. tolingo helps you to rank the translated texts (or websites on which these texts appear) highly in the search engine of the target country.

Strictly in accordance with your specifications

In addition to the broad spectrum of challenges posed by the task of handling personal data, it is essential that the statutory requirements also be observed when operating multilingual websites. tolingo would like to offer its internationally active clients a quality service that meets the challenges posed by GDPR legislation.

Smart time saving

The tolingo translation memory stores previously translated content or passages of text. These are automatically suggested to our specialist translators during the translation process so that translations from the translation memory can be incorporated directly into the current project, saving clients time and money. The ability to generate savings is increased by continually adding to the translation memory database, which grows with every job ordered from tolingo.

Reliable formatting

File engineering leads to lower costs for file adjustments and format conversions on the client side. The experienced project managers at tolingo are familiar with all common file formats and will make all the adjustments to settings needed during document preparation so that the CAT tool used by tolingo can identify and correctly match the text segments to be translated. tolingo is even able to securely process especially large files and quantities of data without any loss.

Systematic unified communication strategies

A glossary is a list of terms and jargon with fixed translations, ensuring standardised terminology and consistent use of industry and company-specific language in a translation. Translators have direct access to the glossary at all times while working on a translation. As soon as the system used by tolingo recognises a glossary entry in the source text, it prompts the translator to use the corresponding fixed translation.Clients can either provide an existing glossary or a list of specialist terms for initial translation, or they can work with tolingo to gradually compile a new glossary.

Strike the right chord - in any language

tolingo offers style guide creation to guarantee that clients receive homogenous and consistent industry and company-specific language. Specialist translators and proofreaders receive the style guide along with the file to be translated, which they compare with the defined guidelines after translation. This ensures standardised use of style, formatting and spelling in all translations. This also allows clients to save on in-house resources for adapting translated documents themselves.

Style guides can of course be revised or expanded at any time. We would be happy to develop a customised, company-specific style guide for you.
