Linguists involved

Founded in 2001, Party Delights is a Manchester-based online supplier of partyware, including balloons, fancy dress, stationery, party supplies, wedding accessories and personalised invitations, cards and banners.

After meeting the Web-Translations team at the Internet Retailing Expo, Party Delights decided to localise their eCommerce website into German.

With over 15,000 products to translate, as well as static pages and email content, Party Delights wanted to launch the site with enough time to capture Christmas sales, so all translation work had to be completed in less than one month.

Our experienced Project Managers created a virtual team of over 20 linguists to handle the translation and review processes, helping them to collaborate and coaching them through the process to ensure consistency and quality.

Successful management of the project, with its short timescale and demands for quality and consistency, led to Party Delights returning for further translations in German and in French.

The Challenge?

  • Over 400,000 words contained in thousands of products as well as static content
  • Quick turnaround required
  • Maintaining consistency with existing translations of names television shows / films and film quotations, as well as consistency within the translation provided

The Solution?

  • Project Management team experienced with large projects
  • Creation of Project Team with over 20 experienced linguists
  • Creation and regular updating of glossaries
  • Use of the SDL Trados translation software to maintain consistency and reduce time spent translating repetitive text

The Results.

  • Project completed on time
  • Localised website enabling visitors to have a completely German shopping experience
  • Increased sales from German customers
  • Party Delights was pleased with the result and has since ordered more German translations, as well as French translations
