We are happy to announce that following the acquisition of Amesto Translations earlier this year, Semantix has chosen XTRF as its main Project Management and Automation platform.
The majority of us knows the feeling. “I’ll only take a peek” at my Facebook page, or at the news portal … and all of a sudden half an hour’s gone by. I catch myself asking me: “How did I get here?”. I try to be on my guard, but this helps only for a while. Finally, at the end of the day, I find out just how much time I’ve lost…
Combining data from different systems, their convenient and easy presentation, and enabling cooperation between multiple users are the key features of any good reporting system. And since all of them are supported by both XTRF and Google SpreadSheets, we struck upon the idea that the combination of these two tools would make reporting yet easier, more enjoyable, and even more effective.
I often see how people start off their day at the office with a coffee, some gossip, and a look through the news on various portals, and afterwards reply to the various e-mails that they received since the evening before. But many of them are completely unaware of the fact that by doing so they have already used up one half of the best quality time available to them in the day.
Quality in the localization industry is taken as a given. A client contacting a translation agency about a potential project is expecting a product that will meet tacitly-assumed quality standards so that it can be readily presented to end users. Any localization company that wants to stay in business must at some point introduce a quality management system. Of course, the client’s needs with respect to quality may differ depending on their priorities.
Following our strong development last year, now XTRF Management System establishes its presence in North America for good. Our team expands with the new hire of Pascal Boivin, who brings to XTRF huge industry and professional knowledge, having worked for many years for Oracle, SDL, and Plunet!
Buying a new Translation Management System is a revolution. No matter if you are familiar with similar systems or not, it is always a huge change for every translation agency. After all, this new piece of software is going to become your central and probably most important tool to run your business. This is exactly why we at XTRF pay so much attention to its successful implementation.
