How does GPI desktop publish and design your multilingual documents?

Step 1: Localization Kit Review

Quality Assurance

GPI follows a comprehensive, customizable and fully documented Quality Control Process. Each step in our translation workflow includes a series of checklist-based quality audits to ensure the accuracy of the translation. Your QA and workflow processes can also be easily incorporated into our workflow.
