6.3 million words in 6 weeks

What do you do when there are more than 6,000,000 million words to be processed by human translators in a short period of time? EPIC Translations was selected to provide its document translation services for this massive project that had to be completed within 6 weeks.

Requirements:

1. Machine translation post edit (MTPE) of 6.3 words for the following languages:

  1. Chinese Simplified
  2. Chinese Traditional
  3. French (France)
  4. German
  5. Portuguese (Brazilian)

The project was performed for a property rental company expanding to China, France, Germany, and Brazil.

Fulfillment:

EPIC Translations successfully identified, recruited, and managed 85 linguists to edit and proofread more than 6.3 million words in 6 weeks. The final version of the text had to be 100% native, free of errors, and ready for web consumption by one of the largest property rental websites on the web.

The 85 linguists selected for this project were located throughout the USA, China, France, Germany, and Brazil. The team of linguists was divided by language pair and assigned to 1 of the 3 Project Managers from EPIC Translations. EPIC Translations’ proprietary project management software called EPS (EPIC Provisioning System) was utilized in order to properly manage file assignments, delivery schedule, invoicing, and reporting.
