#NO.1 Quality control (QC) Mechanical Course #Khanna Pul. Isl #2023
Mechanical quality control is a set of mechanical checks that detects potential errors in translated content that are easily missed by the human eye. These include omissions, numerical errors, inconsistencies, and punctuation issues in the translation compared to the source text. Many QC tools also have a function for checking consistency with any glossary that has been provided for the project, checking whether the terms in the glossary or termbase have been used in the translation.No matter how conscientious and experienced a translator or reviser is, certain issues can be missed, especially in a longer translation. A QC check helps ensure that there are no errors of the type that a mechanical tool is able to detect. It is performed at the end of each translation assignment before delivery, along with complete a spellcheck of the translation.
These checks are included as a minimum:
Omissions, untranslated segments
Inconsistency with 100% matches in the translation memory (repetitions & 100% matches)
Other punctuation checks
Other more detailed checks include:
Length verification: checks for target segments that are shorter/longer than the source by a certain percentage; checks whether length limitation is within specific limits,
Terminology verification: checks terms against a termbase or glossary, or against a list of untranslatables.
