Continuous Quality Improvement
The centralized, uniform process was designed from the ground up to deliver continuous
quality and process improvements. Controlling and growing your translation memory,
glossaries and term-bases all contribute to improved quality across numerous vendors
and translators. Leveraging previously approved translations clearly makes sense
in today's quality conscious world.
Faster Time to New Markets - the New Competitive Advantage
This is the new competitive advantage in today's global economy and we want you
to win! With your new enterprise-wide portal and centralized
repository of all your translated and localized intellectual property, every new project
leverages all previous translations. As Translation Memory
matches increase, the amount of human translation work required decreases
so your work is completed faster, with greater consistency and at lower cost.
Significant Initial Savings, Guaranteed
Once you can aggregate the total translation volume across the entire enterprise,
you create a buyers' market for your translation needs. Total Annual Volume drives
pricing, giving you the power to reduce or even eliminate Project Management Fees
and Minimum Fees. The vendors' ability to raise pricing is gone and the pressure
is on them to keep lowering prices to win your business.
While the Kinetic system greatly lowers your expenses, it also lowers the vendors'
expenses, allowing them to go below your negotiated contract prices. The vendors'
guess work and fudge factors are eliminated by providing internationalized and pre-translated
files 100% ready for the translator to begin translating. After the vendors' initial
shock of having to bid on each project, they soon realize that much of the initial
work is already done for them--bidding is quick and easy and their contract pricing
for the project is automatically supplied to them by the system. They can submit
their contract price or consider lowering their price to win the job. Maybe they
have excess capacity right now, maybe they need to meet some financial goals, maybe
the account rep needs to make his quota… all these variables are now in play, and
in your favor!
Being selected as an approved language translation vendor no longer guarantees a
steady flow of work; it requires a consistent effort to bid and take on new projects.
With each project won, they must deliver the highest quality, and deliver it on
time to stay on the bid list. Yes it is tough, but translations today are a commodity and you are just treating it that way because
you have the knowledge, the system and the control!
Kinetic guarantees a minimum of 20% translation expense savings in the initial
12 months of deployment, with our average Client reported savings of 42% in the
first year. And saving will continue to increase because the system is built to
deliver greater savings the more it is used.
Where you, not your vendors, have secure and private control of your content, your
translation memory and your intellectual property, as well as the actual translation
process, from beginning to end. Vendor independence unleashes you from their rules,
processes, timelines and prices.
Full Transparency & Metrics
You have full insight into each stage of each project. The system measures and tracks
everything from document word count and word repeats to vendor errors, delivery
performance and cost-competitiveness. Imagine being able to replace the old ‘lump-sum
invoice' paradigm of most vendors with one of line-item accountability. It's a big
change, but easy when you are in full control.
Simplicity, Efficiency & Agility for Your Users, Vendors & You
The enterprise-wide portal simplifies the translation process for everyone, providing
improved efficiency and agility to your users, your department and your vendors.
Even your Purchasing Department will appreciate the new efficiencies. Because you
are setting the translation process rules, terms and conditions, you can keep things
simple and efficient.
