For a detailed explanation, go to How to Manage Large Translation Projects.
At KENAX we strive to design the best possible translation
process in order to provide an excellent service. Our translation process
has been developed over a decade and is founded on experience with many
large projects. Whether a translation requires a single translator or a very
large team, proper management logistics ensures a smooth operation and
excellent results. After all, as they say in the translation business, one always needs their translation done "yesterday". We have provided many large translation projects for our clients over the years and it seems that many customers discuss things in the boardroom, closing deals and negotiating, perhaps having some reasonably healthy padding of time set aside, but by the time the translation is required, the various departments within the company have already used up the padding of time and now everything is rush rush rush. Or perhaps a large manufacturer has sold one of its expensive products, but by the time negotiations have been sealed and all other logistics taken care of, and the product is practically sitting on the doorstep of its customer's headquarters, the sales contract stipulates that the expensive and complicated machinery must be delivered with an extensive instructions manual, inevitably in the language of the client's workers. And, inevitably, these instructions are incorporated in the sales contract and must be delivered together with the product, otherwise heavy fines for late delivery are imposed. We have done such extensive translations practically overnight, with the customer worriedly breathing down our neck at every moment. And you can imagine that such important and complicated documentation is not an easy task to translate, let alone at a good quality which the workers would understand and could rely on.
Following is an explanation I prepared of the above Flash presentation,
before I learned the programming language myself.

One of the aspect of my website which I would like to develop is to explain to customers how the
translation process works.
