Documents & file formats at a glance

Regardless of the file format — we'll find a solution

The technical accuracy and stylistic grace of a translation are without a doubt the most important conditions for a customer's satisfaction with their translation service provider. It is also necessary, however, to keep a customer's preparation and follow-up efforts to a minimum. Such efforts may arise, for example, when dealing with the large variety of different file formats that are used today, whether it is in their conversion to other file formats, or in subsequent reformatting.

Our solution: 24|xliff

Working alongside our sister firm 24technology, we have set ourselves the goal of reducing this workload. Our goal: make our software and processes compatible with all common file formats. Our solution was 24|xliff, a software program that makes it possible to edit almost all common software formats. 24|xliff converts clients' source texts into a format that is readable to all common translation systems, then converts them back into their original format after translation. What does that mean? Our customers send us their documents for translation and receive the finished translations in the same format, regardless of whether they are Word, PowerPoint, InDesign or XML files. This completely eliminates the need for customers to spend time on conversion and formatting.
