Our Power is our Care, Our Power is our Presence!
Why quality is the most important factor when dealing with translation projects?
 
 
 
Because you avoid these serious risks involved in poor quality translation services: 
    • Lawsuits
    • Monetary losses
    • Malpractice - any profession
    • Inefficient resource utilization
    • Delay in product/campaign launch
    • Wasted mistranslated marketing campaigns
    • Misdiagnosis/delayed diagnosis/medical errors with clinical consequences
    • Barriers to access to public services (government, legal, education, health, social services)
    Quality: “The totality of characteristics of an entity that bear on its ability to satisfy stated and implied needs” (ISO 8402)   
     
    Translation Quality: The degree to which the characteristics of a translation fulfill the requirements of the agreed upon specifications[1].   
     
     
    Quality Assurance: Refers to the overall process used to create the deliverables[2].   
     
    There are 3 elements to consider when evaluating a quality assurance process for translation:
    • Provider: physical or legal person providing the service
    • Process: steps used to produce the Target Text (TT)
    • Product: The translation itself  
    The assessment method is different for each and depends on the desired outcome.   
     
    Quality Control: Refers to specific activities within the project that guarantee the quality of project deliverables. Quality control is just one step in the quality assurance process.

    In this video, we are discussing the most important things in translation quality, from the perspective of quality auditors and pioneers in the service standardization in the language industry. Gabriele Sauberer is interviewing Peter Jonas, Head of Austrian Standards Certification, and of LICS, the Language Industry Certification System.
    Distance interpreting unveils substantial market opportunities, and cooperation among providers can only bring positive results, as it allows us to more effectively address a global need: more multilingual content. 
     
    We are the very First KUDO Studio in Canada. KUDO is a powerful cloud-based platform that allows people and businesses to collaborate and meet more effectively across geographic and language barriers. KUDO streams real-time language interpretation for web meetings and live conferences.We appreciate working with the KUDO team. Their professionalism, expertise in simultaneous interpreting and innovative technologies make them #1.
     
    As a company that cares, we are committed to helping those less fortunate around the world as well as the most vulnerable members of our communities in Canada.

    ·       Mental health
    ·       Healthcare

    The Benefits of Stretching
     
    When looking to strengthen & improve our bodies, stretching and mobility is often overlooked. Improving our flexibility is one of the best things we can do for the longevity of our muscles & joints. Here are a few of the top benefits of stretching.
     
    Increase Strength
    When thinking of building strength, we rarely look at flexibility as an essential piece of the puzzle. Improving the flexibility and elasticity noticeably improves our strength on all fronts. Want to get stronger? Start stretching! 
     
    Reduce Injury
    When living an active lifestyle, it is easy for us to incur some form of injury. Incorporate stretching into your daily routine and this will drastically reduce your likelihood of getting injured. 
     
    Mobile for Longer
    As we age, our bodies will naturally become less and less mobile. If we want to maximize our mobility and keep our ability to move for longer - we need to incorporate daily stretching into our lives. Stretch now to be able to move later. 
     
    Live Pain Free
    1 in 10 people experience some form of physical pain on a regular basis. Chronic pain is an epidemic that affects more than 1.5 billion people worldwide. If you want to live a pain free life, a step in the right direction is incorporating at least 15-20 minutes of stretching a day. 
     
    We all want to live longer, energy rich, healthy lives. That starts by building and maintaining a healthy body. We suggest a minimum of 15-20 minutes of stretching every single day to improve mobility, reduce pain, and to level up your life!
