Technical Translation: High-volume mining technical report under short timeline

80,000 words in 3 weeks. And not just fast, mind you; the fine folks at AngloGold Ashanti needed a highly-technical report translated with top-notch quality and accuracy as well. That’s right, we’ll say it. We work miracles.

So we went straight to work and put some of our best mining experts on the team, for a total of 5 translators to accomplish this feat and 1 editor to not only QA the translators’ work but ensure the style remained consistent throughout the report.

In addition, we put in place cloud-based collaboration tools so all team members could work jointly, help each other, and take advantage of our internal language tools concurrently for consistent and most up-to-date terminology at every stage of the project. 

The result? Why should we tell you when you can hear it straight from the client:

“Just wanted to thank you for the wonderful work you did. We were thrilled with the translation. A colleague even told me it was one of the best technical translations he’s ever seen. Congrats, we’re looking forward to working together again.”
~ Vice President Sustainability, AngloGold Ashanti

And wait, there’s more:

“I am again impressed by the speed and professionalism demonstrated by your company in delivering this quality translation job. All looks excellent.”
~ Mine Closure Manager, AngloGold Ashanti
