End Client: Energizer
Project Description: Energizer Ethics Guide in 15 languages
Scope: Translation and Multilingual Typesetting including Redesign of InDesign file for Arabic readers
Human resources translation case study
The Energizer’s Ethics guide needed to be in 15 different languages. Our Translation Memory technology also allows us to process the InDesign file directly for translation which cuts the typesetting time by 1/3 (as well as the costs). We already had existing Translation Memories for Energizer so we were able to also ensure consistency of terminology with past translations.
In addition to translation and typesetting, this project also involved client review of the translation with Energizer’s global HR directors.
Of the 13 languages, only the French reviewer made many changes which were stylistic in nature. All others received very high reviews. From the Energizer Japanese reviewer: “This is the best Japanese translation I have ever reviewed for Energizer”
