Elanex was founded with the perspective that there was an unmet need to apply technology to the expanding demand for language services. Unlike those before us, we started with a blank sheet of paper unconstrained by preconceptions, existing infrastructure, or legacy technologies. Everything about the structure of our company and our technology was designed from the ground up to quickly deliver accurate, professional translation with good value for money.
The following are five key attributes about Elanex that enable us to consistently deliver for our clients:
1. Technology Platform
We have a common technology platform used for all our projects. Unlike at legacy firms with multiple platforms, every project in Elanex flows through a single system used by every project manager around the globe. This enables us to collaborate and seamlessly move projects around the globe at unmatched speed with minimal effort and maximum accuracy. We can connect to you by web API or CMS integration — everything about our technology platform is optimized for efficiency and quality.
2. Specialist Translators
To deliver high-quality translations for any language or subject, Elanex uses only subject matter specialist translators, evaluated and qualified within 100+ subject areas, and works with them personally, as opposed to huge companies that frankly subcontract the core translation process. We select from the largest possible pool of expert translators because we don’t require them to use or purchase proprietary software tools. This provides superior in-depth vertical market expertise and the best-qualified team for each requirement. Larger firms typically outsource to SLV’s (single language vendor); We believe SLV’s introduce a cost layer, inefficiencies in production steps, and makes it impossible to identify poorly performing individual practitioners.
3. Editorial Review
Tight deadlines and large projects require teams of translators. To ensure consistency, adherence to style, and for on-going feedback to translators, every translation is independently reviewed by an Elanex Certified Editor. Our trained editors go beyond simple proofreading, by comparing every sentence of the translated materials against the source document to deliver client-ready translations. Furthermore, they rate and score each translation so we can rank translators – an embedded quality assurance process.
4. Standard Workflow
One-off situations reduce efficiency, lower quality, and even when successful, are difficult to reproduce. Elanex brings a process mentality and a drive to simplify the complex. We use a standard production process for each project, supported by our workflow technology — optimized for speed, for quality, and to minimize duplication of effort for both our clients and our teams. With consistent processes, we can focus our efforts on quality and responsiveness.
5. Global Team
At Elanex, someone is always available to support you 24/7. Our global production team covers the Americas, Asia Pacific and Europe/Middle East with seamless overlap. Our technology and vast production resources enable Elanex to efficiently manage massive projects with high speed services for the most demanding, time-sensitive requirements. Our commitment is to serve our clients with personal attention to their individual translation needs.
