Localization is the art of transporting language from one culture to another. It’s also a science with powerful tools for multilingual projects. We can set up a portable framework to localize your content for the world’s English and German speakers.

The centerpiece of any localization system is a computer-assisted translation service, or CAT for short. GermanBureau can use any of the commercially available CAT applications to:

  • speed up translation workflows
  • maintain consistent terminology
  • save time and money with built-in tools

Furthermore, our editors use integrated quality controls to review all content before it’s published — and you can get involved in the revision process, too!

Our translators and editors are familiar with the “big three” CAT programs. In order of preference, we like to use Kilgray MemoQ, SDL Trados, Atril Déjà Vu or OmegaT (an open-source alternative). If you’re working with a different system or want to stick with your existing translation environment, please contact us to develop a custom solution that matches your needs.

We speak your language

While CAT software ensures efficient and consistent results through technology, our bilingual translators add a crucial human element by considering all aspects of communication. This includes your intended audience and cultural differences but also search-engine readability, local laws and several other factors that could affect how your message is received abroad. This is where GermanBureau stands out from other translation agencies, much to your advantage.

Projects benefiting the most from CAT typically include:

  • technical documentation for global manufacturers and their suppliers
  • corporate language management for multinational organizations
  • games and other forms of digital entertainment
  • international publications and art projects
  • blogs, podcasts and other digital media

In each of these areas, GermanBureau offers streamlined solutions to localize your content for English and German-speaking markets around the world. Especially if you’re looking to expand into the US or UK, GermanBureau can provide the localization services you need to make it a success.
