Localization of large database within short timeframe


Client: PizzaHut 

U.S. based company franchising for pizza restaurants all around the world.

 

PizzaHut’s requirements

Localization of large database (600K) within 30 days.

 

Our solution

Database was 600K words with 30 days delivery. We identified and booked 8 translators and 2 editors to deliver 600K within 30 days. Connecting to the project Server-TM by 8 translators needed some protocols. We drafted a term list for frequent vocabularies. As the source files were XML, a special configuration file had to be prepared so that output (our delivery) can be imported without problem by our client. A project-based discussion forum was helpful to maintain on-time communication with project members. 2 Editors were appointed to follow up the raw translations and share feedback instantly via discussion forum. Finally, we successfully managed to deliver 600K within 31 days with one day delay.

Result

PizzaHut was satisfied and payment was received immidiately. Next, Kentucky Fried Chicken was added to the project.
