Exclusive Vendor Management

The world is moving into a new eco-system through faster and extended connectivity, well-though automation solutions, smarter algorithms, well-written regulations and protocols. In parallel, online and on-site applications have been extensively diversified following the demands. That’s why in many localization projects, we are not looking for self-proven linguists only, but also true expert background. In doing so, we exceed the limits of traditional capacity by building extended capacity. 


In our private vendor database, as of 08/2019, there are 4,100 vendors classified by the technical parameters in compliance with ISO17100. It is unique, because 6-steps application form and admin panel are original and designed as a result of the hard work of the admin team of Alafranga in 2009 and upgraded in 2018 with new features. For example: our database is kept updated, because vendors are perfectly authorized to modify their data anytime they wish. Personal histories can be monitored by project managers based on the projects completed. Feedback communication is centralized thanks to the module incorporated to the platform.


In regards to the complex projects that require immediate action with a teamwork of multiple translators and proofreaders, our Admin Panel offers highly advanced multi-criteria filtering options. Our project managers can choose to run a search by the criteria such as service type, specialized topics, language couples, A-Z list of rates, CAT tools, locations, status etc. and run crowdsourcing process.


We are particularly interested in the vendors who meaningfully narrowed their specialized topics. To our eye, “I can translate everything” is very negative. Also, A-Z list of rates option allows us to eliminate “too cheap” and “too expensive” vendors.


Thanks to our hard work and experience since 2002, our upgraded vendor management platform is of our own design and perfectly raises our service quality beyond expectations.
