"I was extremely pleased with the services provided by Globalization Partners", says Jill Friend, InMed's Marketing Director.

About the Project
Globalization Partners International (GPI) provided website globalization services into Spanish and Portuguese for InMed's corporate website. InMed was using a proprietary web content management system (web CMS) to publish their English content and now needed to utilize the CMS to handle multiple languages. GPI designed a simple 6-step custom workflow in order to interface with InMed's proprietary CMS.
The workflow included:
- extraction of translatable text from the CMS
- preparation of all files for glossary development, translation and editing
- glossary development
- localization of all text and graphics
- importation of the translated content back into the CMS
- online quality assurance (QA) before the new content was published
Translation Memory technology was used in order to provide InMed with consistency, cost-effective pricing on repeat text, and an easy workflow for updates and enhancements to the site. The work was completed in-house by GPI, including all workflow design, graphic localization, project management and translation. InMed was provided weekly status reports and chose to have review and approval opportunities at both glossary development and the online QA stages.
