Here are two noteworthy recent articles on translation quality:
First, ForeignExchange's Sonia Monahan knows a thing or two about measurable translation quality. She regularly talks and presents on issues around quality of medical translation services.
A recent issue of MultiLingual Computing featured "Translation quality expectations", an article written by Sonia about our poll on clients' quality expectations (see here and here).
Second, Moravia asked this question on their blog: Does Translation Quality Even Matter Anymore?
You be your own judge but I love the attitude demonstrated by their answer. It is that attitude that keeps the number of credible competitors so low in the medical translation space.
ForeignExchange Translations provides specialized medical translation services to the world's largest medical device and pharmaceutical companies.
