Localization Process

Pactera’s agile workflow supports global go-to-market strategies.

Material Assessment
Quality Assurance
Implementation & Testing

After handoff, preparatory work begins. A team of translators is created with the necessary language skills and (where appropriate) domain expertise in the subject matter. Meanwhile, PM and engineering teams are set up, often across three continents, to enable time zone efficiencies and quick turnaround.

Glossaries, style guides, and other references are created to ensure consistency of translated content, and then our expert translators get to work. Where appropriate, we make use of machine translation with human testing and QA.


Quality checks are multi-staged and rigorous. During manual translation, a series of reviews is conducted to ensure accuracy, including proofing by a second translator, plus third-party review. Where machine translation has been used, we test through a combination of regular software-based checks and native speaker reviews.

Localization teams then prepare translated materials for implementation or final handoff to customers. The localized solutions are then rigorously tested, any bugs are logged, and solutions are implemented as necessary.
