It is quality that determines the level of translation and the public acceptance and client satisfaction. The parameters on which the quality check is done are set with care. It is quality-control that determines whether the translation is complete and if the vocabulary is impeccable. The quality control measures also check for coherence in translation content along with spelling and punctuation errors. The importance of quality can be judged by the fact that it is quality and only quality that ensures that a translation is ready for client delivery. Quality control measures taken during production not only ensures that a translation is of highest quality, it also saves a lot of time and effort for the client as it does not require a second tier check process. It is about doing right the very first time.
