Given the importance of collaboration and experience with customers in the automotive sector, IMAGINE has decided to adopt and implement the SAE J2450 evaluation system for translation services regarding the two and four-wheeled industry.
In the past, in the automotive sector, the measurement of translation quality was rather subjective.
Nowadays, the goal of the quality measurement system is to define a consistent standard. The aim is to objectively measure translation quality in the automotive sector, regardless of the source or the target text, or how the translation is performed (human or machine translation).
This measurement system allows the evaluator to identify translation errors or inconsistencies, thus calculating a weighted numerical score representing translation quality.
The consistent use of a measurement system, throughout the automotive sector, allows for a more stringent translation quality control.
