Challenges surrounding translation and localization are increasing today more than ever
due to shorter lead times and the popularization of agile development.
In times such as these, our translation services,
through which we have supported our customers’ overseas operations in a myriad of business categories over decades,will prove beneficial.
We help customers succeed in their global business
by meeting a wide range of translation needs.
●Translation and localization
From automobiles and mechanical and electronic equipment to IT and software, translation services offered by CMC XMANICOM have been praised in many areas for years by our global customers based in Japan and overseas.
Through an abundance of resources and close collaboration with our overseas sites that cover China and the rest of Asia as well as Europe, we offer multilingual support in over 50 languages, starting with English and German. Providing speedy, high quality translations is our specialty.
●Machine translation and post-editing
CMC XMANICOM has gotten a head start on the rest of the industry in verifying and implementing machine translation. By combining post-editing, quality assurance checking and other processes, we meet our customers’ need to guarantee a certain level of quality while keeping costs down. When the quality generated by mechanical translations is unsatisfactory, call upon CMC XMANICOM. We will apply our thorough knowledge of the properties of machine translation to handle everything from the development of a dedicated model for customers to customization.
●Translation memories and glossaries
Industrial documents contain considerable repetition. We can help reduce costs, shorten delivery deadlines and improve quality by accumulating once-translated text and reusing it in the form of “translation memories.” Upon performing translations, we also refer to “glossaries” containing key terms and proper nouns to prevent inconsistencies in and mistranslations of expressions. For customers who do not have a glossary, we help them create one. Translation memories and glossaries constitute important translation assets of the customer. CMC XMANICOM possesses the knowhow to appropriately manage and grow those assets.

Strict quality control
At standard translation companies, translation checking consists of roughly two processes at the most. At CMC XMANICOM, checking is separated in up to four or five processes consisting of language proofreading, spell checking, style checking, native checking, technical proofreading, and pre-delivery checking. Multiple checkers check for errors and mistakes based on items set forth in a check sheet. Furthermore, we also prevent outflows of errors that we may have visually overlooked somehow with the use of dedicated software.
Formidable support of forays into overseas markets with multilingual translations
In rolling out products and services overseas, translations of catalogs, manuals, e-learning, websites and other material into local languages are indispensable. CMC XMANICOM puts its full effort behind assisting customers with the success of their global business by linking up with its group sites overseas to speedily translate such documents into multiple languages.
Adept at highly specialized translations as well
Numerous specialized translators with a wealth of experience in various sectors are registered with CMC XMANICOM, which ensures the accurate use of expressions and phrases specific to those sectors. Additionally, for instruction and service manuals and other documents, auto mechanics and other certified individuals and engineers possessing specialized knowledge perform technical proofreading. The key to our approach is to give manual text a highly practical finish that can be read and understood by anyone rather than simply ensuring its linguistic and technical correctness.
Meticulous handling tailored to individual customers
CMC XMANICOM proposes optimal translation plans in accordance to customer needs with no sacrifice made in quality, cost or speed. Dedicated customer teams made up of a sales representative, a project manager, translators and checkers are put together. Members with full knowledge of the requirements of customers handle their requests no matter when they are made.
A development team with advanced technological prowess
Projects with multiple requirements such as unique XML or special file formats include the participation of system engineers and programmers. Feel free to consult with CMC XMANICOM regarding documents that other translation companies find difficult to handle. Even in cases involving large-scale translation projects or those with short delivery deadlines, we optimize production progress through tool development and customization tailored to customer requirements.
