The STAR solution

For the length of their partnership, STAR has put a dedicated team of translators at Walter’s disposal. Building on their specialist knowledge of machine tools, this team has become familiar with Walter terminology and style preferences. For each target language in the catalogue project, STAR has put in place a team of two qualified translators – one to translate and one to revise in compliance with ISO17100. Following translation, the customer uses WebCheck to check and approve translations, with any amends made seamlessly to both the end layout and the translation memory database.
