Translation memory – Transit NXT
Transit NXT is STAR’s proprietary, industry leading translation software. Translation Memory, in simple terms, remembers everything we have previously translated for you.
To prepare a document for translation, such as a catalog containing text and images, we ‘import’ the file into Transit. During this process, the text is separated from the layout and divided into text segments, providing the translator with a clear work interface. After the translation is finished the text is ‘exported’ again and automatically merged with the original layout.
Transit uses the newly translated text segments to create an ever growing database with previously translated material and a specific dictionary for each customer. When translating a new document, Transit will assist the translator by suggesting matching phrases from previous translations. If new text segments match already translated segments, Transit will automatically replace those.
What are the benefits?
Faster Translations! No text is translated twice. In addition to using previously translated reference material, Transit also constantly searches the remaining text for identical segments during the translation, and automatically replaces those.
Consistency and Quality! By using reference material and a customer specific dictionary, Transit ensures that phrases and terminology within any new or updated document remain consistent with previously translated text.
Lower translation cost! Handling of previously translated terms is charged at a lower rate. Through automatically inserting the translated text back into its original layout, you also significantly save on layout costs.
What file formats can we handle?
We use Transit NXT to work with all of the main source document types such as MS Office, Adobe InDesign, Adobe FrameMaker, Quark, HTML and XML. Custom file formats for translation services are no problem, contact us now to discuss your specific project requirements.
Delivering your communication in pristine quality
Your published material is your way of communicating your brand to the world – don’t waste the opportunity. Sloppy spelling or punctuation errors can negatively impact your customer’s perception of your company. Communication should be clear, concise and most importantly, convincing! STAR has experience in working with source documentation before translation or publication to make sure that your text is the best it can be.
What will we be checking for?
In short, our proofreading services can check specifically for any issue that you list. We want you to be sure that the material you publish is of the highest quality, so we act as your second pair of eyes to spot the things you may have missed. We will be checking for:
- Terminology consistency
- Writing style
- Clarity of instructions
What kind of documents can we check?
Proofreading services may be needed for a variety of different documents, any document that will be published may require a second pair of eyes to check for oversights. Proofreading adds the most value to technical documentation – ensuring that terminology is used consistently and instructions are clear – but it is also beneficial to marketing texts where the text needs to make an impact on the consumer.

STAR uses a network of subtitling and voice-recording partners to ensure that the process is simple and pain-free. Working from a video file, we create caption and subtitle files, translate to your chosen languages, provide text for customer approval and can create the final multilingual videos for you to upload.
