Translation Support Tools

Expertise (Translation Support Tools) 

We use our own translation support tools designed specifically for translation.

To localize a product, an enormous amount of files must be translated. A team of professionals is involved in translation. However, final translations must follow the same style however complex translation processes are. Localization of a product written in XML or another special language also requires correct reconfiguration of tags. To clear these issues, different tools equipped with advanced search functions must be used. However, ready-made tools do not have adequate functions for the special mission of translation. Therefore Chris Translation developed its own tools designed for special functions, such as a tool to check translations for breaches of style rules and a tag search tool. Lots of practical knowhow accumulated in years of experience are incorporated into these tools. These tools also provide a solid base for quality translation, service efficiency, and cost competitiveness.

Enhanced version of the preview function of TagEditor. Developed on our own. Because Internet Explorer or another browser is used to preview translations, searching, copying, and pasting are easy.
CheckMate
Designed to
Check translations for breaches of style guides.
Functions
A tool developed to check whether or not style guides are followed. Developed on our own. (The tool is still under development.) This tool can be used to create databases to conform to style guides provided by customers. At present, translations can be checked for certain breaches of the style guides of Microsoft. In the future, additional functions will be incorporated so that kanji and kana can be used properly and declensional kana endings can be checked. Currrently, the check function can only be used with .ttx files, but Word files will be also supported and batch processing will be allowed in the future.
CheckMate_on Word VBA
Designed to
Check translations for breaches of style guides.
Functions
Tool developed by inhouse editors, which uses the function of Word VBA. It is used to check whether or not style guides are followed. This tool can be used to create databases to conform to style guides provided by customers. One-byte characters can be distinguished from double-byte characters, kanji and kana can be used properly, and declensional kana endings can be checked. At present, the style guides of Microsoft and Oracle are supported. However, CheckMate, which is under development, is superior in usability and scalability. In the future, this tool will be integrated into CheckMate
