How do the Translator’s competencies impact the selection of vendors for a translation project in LivoLINK?

LivoLINK, as an advanced translation project management software, offers comprehensive tools for a precise selection of vendors, depending on their competencies. This process is based on detailed parameters that shape the ranking of vendors for each project. You can use the ranking list in two ways – for independent decisions by the Project Manager to select a given translator or the automatic algorithm. The LivoLINK algorithm fully automates the selection of translators for a given translation project according to the parameters you specify, defining the desired competencies of the translator.

How do the translator’s competencies impact this process?

  1. Dedicated translators

A key aspect is assigning a dedicated translator to a specific client. Dedicated translators always occupy the highest position on the list of the most suitable vendors for a given client and his translations by the LivoLINK algorithm.

  1. Groups of translators

Creating groups of translators according to various criteria, such as quality or price, enables an effective ranking of vendors. “The better the group, the higher the ranking” rule guarantees the selection of the most suitable vendors.

  1. Project type

You can create your own individual parameters such as choosing the project type. It means that each project could be based on CAT tools or other word processors. Knowing the type of the project, it can be used to assign specific translators to specific projects. This will prevent unsuitable vendors from being on the list of proposed contractors.

  1. Specialisations

Specify in which specialisations your translator has the best knowledge and experience. This will allow only vendors who meet certain specialisation criteria to be included in the ranking list.

  1. Skill level in a given specialisation

Determining the scale of qualifications of a translator in a given specialisation by taking into account, e.g., education or experience in translating in a given field, eliminates from the ranking list of translators whose level of competence is too low.

Choosing the translator’s competencies in LivoLINK allows for more effective and precise implementation of translation projects. For this reason, decisions of Project Managers, and automatic selection of the translator are based on objective criteria, improving efficiency and ensuring high quality of the final results.

Icons in LivoLINK – system messages

At the centre of LivoLINK’s system interaction are icons, commonly referred to as messages, which play an important role in communicating the current state of the system. They are visual cues that accompany users from the initiation of a request through to the final stage of a project. Some of them are informative, while others have a warning function, signalling potential problems or the need to take action.

Information messages:

Orange triangle with an exclamation mark: signals the need for specific actions to maintain the process flow. For example, after the translator has completed their stage of work, this icon would appear to indicate that quality control can begin.

Green shield: indicates key aspects of the work process, for example that a file was successfully uploaded.

Running man icon: indicates that a process is in progress and has not yet been completed.

Hourglass icon: also informs about the ongoing process, but indicates that it will require more time to complete.

Green card icon: indicates that the task proposal has been accepted by a vendor.

Warning messages:

Black circle icon with the letter ‘i’: indicates that something needs to be corrected at a particular stage of the process, for example, that there is no way of calculating the price for a price list item.

Burgundy icon with an exclamation mark: indicates a failure, for example, the rejection of a task proposal or the incomplete translation in the uploaded package.

LivoLINK offers precise guidelines at every stage of the process, and their optimal use contributes to the efficiency of translation projects
