Fast, Accurate & Affordable Translation Solutions!
Thanks to translation technology, the process translators undertake and the steps for translation has been refined immensely. However, the essence of quality translation remains unchanged –individuals rewriting text from a source language into a target language. We believe that many in our industry, in an effort to differentiate themselves, would have you believe they have built a better mousetrap. It’s just not true. The vast majority of projects still require, quite simply:
- A Team of skilled Translators to translate the written word from one language to another. (i.e., translation, editing and proofreading)
- A Project Manager to supervise the translators and reviewers and manage the projects throughout the project lifecycle, from beginning to start.
- A Single Point of Contact to manage client contact and discuss specific requirements.
Our team approach translation by following a proven process consisting of Translation, Editing/Review, and Quality Assurance. This proven workflow allows us to create accurate translations of high quality in up to 50 languages that express the same meaning as conveyed in the source language. We use one separate translator for translation and a separate editor/reviewer who edits and creates a polished final text. This is followed by quality checking. We only use translators with native language proficiency of the target language for all our projects to allow for the highest quality of the deliverables at very competitive rates.
We believe in building relationships with our customers, enabling us to deliver exactly what you want with each document. We learn your style and terminology preferences so that we are efficient and accurate when creating your translation. Moreover, we provide multiple levels of quality assurance reviews specific to your individual needs. We’ll work with you to make sure we’re addressing your specific requirements for each project, executing diligently in order to ensure absolute satisfaction with the translated documents we create for you.
What is the Process of translation
Next time you are shopping for a localization solution and a vendor tries to woo you with fancy jargon, proprietary software or quality certifications–not to mention outlandish claims of bigger is better –watch out! You may pay too much, receive poor customer service, or get questionable quality, with dispersed accountability if the process of your project is interrupted. VEQTA Translations will never impose these tricks of the trade on you and instead provide sound localization project management.
Our translation process is a meticulous approach that involves skilled linguists and industry-specific experts to ensure that your content is accurately translated while preserving its original intent. We focus on linguistic excellence, cultural relevance, and precision to deliver high-quality translations. Our process adapts your content for global audiences, helping you effectively connect with diverse markets.
Our dedicated project management team is the backbone of our localization services. They coordinate every aspect of your project, from initiation to delivery, ensuring efficient workflows and timely results. With their expertise, you can rest assured that your localization project will be executed smoothly and in accordance with your requirements.
At VEQTA Translations, we manage your projects throughout their entire life cycle. From project initiation, planning, execution, and monitoring to closure, our team ensures that your localization needs are met at every stage. This comprehensive approach guarantees that your content is consistently handled and delivered with excellence.
Leveraging the Trados termbase and translation memory, we enhance the efficiency and accuracy of our translations. This technology allows us to store and reuse terminology and phrases across multiple projects, ensuring consistency and reducing costs. With translation memory, you can count on us to maintain precision and coherence in your content.
Our translation style guides play a crucial role in maintaining brand consistency, tone, and voice across multilingual content. We create customized style guides tailored to your specific needs and preferences. These guides serve as reference documents for our linguists, ensuring that your content remains on-brand and resonates with your target audience.
We take care of creating and managing glossaries and term bases to guarantee precise and consistent translations. These resources are essential for ensuring that industry-specific terminology and key phrases are consistently used in your content. By maintaining a well-defined glossary and termbase, we enhance the accuracy and quality of your localized materials.

VEQTA is a member of both the ATA (American Translators Association) and CATI (Carolina Association of Translators and Interpreters). All of VEQTA’s translators hold professional certifications based on language and country, such as the ITBM certificate for Bahasa Malay. VEQTA employs only native-speaking translators who possess a Bachelor’s Degree and have passed rigorous language testing programs. Every translator has a minimum of 5 years of experience, while our editors boast experience ranging from 9 to 17 years.
All project-related communication is channeled through the assigned Project Manager. This ensures streamlined and efficient communication, as the Project Manager serves as a central point of contact. Our translators might not be located in your locale, may operate in different time zones, and given that projects often involve multiple languages, it’s most efficient to have all communications pass through the Project Manager. However, if there’s a pressing need for direct communication with a translator, such as discussing specifics in the target language, we can facilitate a video conference call to address your concerns.
After the project has been scoped, quoted, and handed off, the source material is prepared by the Project Manager and assigned to the translators. The translation undergoes a three-step process: Translation, Editing, and Proofreading, all performed by human translators and editors. If ordered, Desktop Publishing is carried out, followed by a final QA check before delivery. After delivery, the team remains available to address any additional requirements.

At VEQTA, we prioritize the confidentiality and security of our clients’ information above all else. To begin with, all of our staff and translators are bound by strict Non-Disclosure Agreements (NDAs) that protect your data and any associated intellectual property. Furthermore, we adhere to global data protection standards, including the European General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), which ensures that personal data is handled with the utmost care and respect for individual rights. Any data shared with us is encrypted, stored securely, and is accessible only to those directly involved in the project. With these measures in place, our clients can be assured that their confidential information remains private and protected throughout our collaboration.
VEQTA’s quality assurance process is multifaceted and meticulously implemented throughout the entire project life cycle, catering to diverse project needs, be it straightforward transcription, multi-language tasks, or multimedia deliverables. Central to our translation excellence is the delineation of the process into three distinct phases: Translation, Editing, and Proofreading.
Each phase is managed by linguists who specialize in their respective areas.
Yet, our quality assurance doesn’t end there. We utilize software-enabled platforms to run QA reports on all finalized texts. For instance, these tools can detect if a single source term has received multiple translations. Any discrepancies are flagged and sent back to our editors for review. The Project Manager collaborates closely with VEQTA’s QA staff, ensuring that QA reports have been thoroughly conducted. They also ensure that all deliverables adhere to given guidelines, such as the reference observance, utilization of legacy Translation Memories, and the overall accuracy and completeness of the final products.
