Benefits of QARTO
For Your Business
Evolution, Not Revolution
Qarto doesn’t force you to move away from your current translators or translation agencies. Rather, Qarto allows you to reap the benefits that you enjoy from your current translation resources, while bringing down your costs in using them!
When a new job is created, the user simply selects their preferred translator or company from within the system. The Qarto advantages – a portal-based solution accessible from anywhere, second-generation translation memory, real-time project tracking with alarms, online collaboration, etc. – automatically streamlines production; saving time, resources, and money.
Should your translation requirements change or grow over time, then our database comprised of more than 3,500 accredited translators can save you time searching for a particular language competency, or serve as an additional translation resource for larger projects.
Stop paying over and over again for words or phrases you’ve previously had translated.
Translation Memory Automation reduces costs by "reusing" your language asset – your brand vocabulary.
Qarto is designed to offer "Language Asset Management" by market, by client, by brand that’s unique to your organization – a level of granularity unmatched within the industry. The open systems architecture allows many third-party "Translation Memory" databases to be directly ingested into Qarto – allowing you to realize savings from your very first project.
The Translation Memory database, glossary and thesaurus is owned by you: At any time, for whatever reason, you are free to download and save the database and all accrued content.
Glossary / Terminology / Phraseology Management
Qarto is your dedicated corporate Language Asset Management tool, built around your unique brand languages. The localized verbiage, terminology, jargon and phraseology are for your use only.
By treating the source language as a “parent,” before building the association across all target market languages, Qarto achieves language consistency based on an “Input Once, Use Many” philosophy. The result is a faster, more accurate, more consistent brand communication execution across all facets of brand deployment.
Once the approved localized terms has been defined, they are automatically retrieved and deployed within the system as required. As a result documents are updated automatically – and are globally updated within the Qarto content-building engine.
Secure Online Platform
Create projects, submit files, appoint translators, collaborate, validate, etc. from an easy-to-use interface – any modern web browser. Qarto even supports access from mobile devices such as smartphones and tablets.
The intuitive interface gives complete project visibility from wherever you are in the world (e.g. what’s been submitted, what’s been completed, what’s in approval, what’s been approved, deadline management, etc).
With automated synchronization across languages and documents, Qarto is a fully-meshed and collaborative workflow complete with tools such as audit trail tracking, version control, and financial reporting.
Say goodbye to emailing Word docs to all and sundry, to versioning issues, Mac/PC incompatibilities, etc. All project data is centralized and easily accessible by authorized project participants.
Of course, the Qarto user interface is also available in a range of languages (!)
Cloud Based System Built For The Enterprise
There is no software to install. Qarto is a SaaS (“Software as a Service”) application, accessed via the internet using any modern web browser – or even mobile devices such as smartphones or tablets. Using banking-standard 1024-bit secured connection encryption, as well as automated project back-up across multiple sites every five seconds, your data is safe and secure at all times.
All Qarto users enjoy free and unlimited cloud-based storage of both their original as well as their translated files, creating a single, centralized repository for locating and updating documents faster and easier.
We can even ingest your back-catalog data for immediate and cost-effective reuse of archived content.
Finally, Qarto has been built from the ground-up to be as open and as extensible as possible. The published API (Application Program Interface) allows rapid and reliable parallel business systems integration to a wide range of third-party applications such as Digital Asset Management (DAM), Content Managment, Brand Managment, and Enterprise Content Publishing.
What happens after the translation has been completed and approved? Chances are that it is placed into some sort of page or artwork layout.
Perhaps the translated material is to be made into a MS Office™ (Word™, Excel™, PowerPoint™) document. Maybe it’s to be uploaded to a website. Alternatively it could be sent to a designer to create a brochure, catalogue, flyer or other collateral before being printed by a commercial printing company. It could even be used to create an online digital “flip-book”, ePub or made into an “app”, designed to be read on a tablet device.
With Qarto, automated page building is part of the process! Upload a MS Office file and download an MS Office file with the translated text in place.
We combine translation workflow, correction/review, proofing, and content creation into a single process – saving you time, money and resources.
Our unique content-building engine can even publish directly to databases, CMS-based websites, or output formats such as XML, HTML5, Flash ®, or JSON.
