Profiling and translation

Post by mdslup » Fri Oct 04, 2019 4:22 am

I use 2 different translation agencies, depending on which language I want to translate into.

Recently, I sent each agency a set of files with some profiling (audience, product). I send the required ditaval file to the translation agency as well. I instructed them to only translate elements that aligned with the ditaval. However, I also told them that if there was any doubt, they should go ahead and translate it. *In both cases, the agency translated text that the ditaval file would have excluded. *

Has anyone else encountered anything like this?

The forum is not such a good place where to ask questions to the community because most people are notified only on the threads where they personally posted.
Maybe you can ask on the DITA Users List.
