Background: Translation Framework (1) • The World Bank Executive Directors in August 2001 asked Management to develop a framework for translation of Bank documents in the context of the Disclosure Policy. • In response, “A Document Translation Framework” was submitted to the Board in January 2003 (initially focusing on IBRD and IDA but later expanded to cover the entire World Bank Group). • The Board approved the Framework in July 2003. • A kick-off meeting to launch the three-year implementation took place in September 2003.
Background: Framework Stated Goals (2) • To meet demand for translated content in an efficient and cost-effective way • To enhance/ensure the quality of translations To achieve those goals, provide: • guidelines on what to translate and into which languages • a database of approved vendors • workflow tools to support translation • translation tools to improve re-use • online reference and terminology material for translators • a centralized store for translated content • integration of translation processes into authoring and archiving processes • connection to internal financial systems (SAP) • security and confidentiality
Background: Framework Core Facility (3) Note. The Translation Services Core Facility and the in-house translators group are shown together to reflect a common management structure and quality of service. CO denotes country office.

Placeholder Tags General Rules Every tag that appears in the Source must also appear in the Target Examples of errors • The following tag is missing: [/l2] • => Compare Source and Target; add missing tags from Source • => Check for brackets ([ and ]) • The following tag cannot be added: [l1] • => Compare Source and Target; remove extra tags from Target
Format Tags Add/Remove Formatting • The following tags can be added to or deleted from any HTML segment: • [b][/b][i] [/i][u] [/u] • [nbsp] • The following tags are unbalanced: [b] • => These tags must always be in pairs, e.g. [b]This is bold[/b] Example of errors

“Merging” Segments Example: • Source text contains two segments that are customarily translated as one sentence in the Target language.=> End first segment without punctuation (or substituting, e.g., a comma for the period) and with a blank space; => Begin second segment in lowercase.(On export, the two target segments are reformatted as one single sentence. This can be checked in the Main Editor in Preview mode – set inset below.)
“Splitting” Segments Example: • Source text contains one segment that is customarily translated as two sentences in the Target language.=> Enter the two sentences in the Target window as they would appear in the final text.(Note in the TM Match Results at left: the two sentences had previously been stored as one segment in memory, generating a 94% match. One may conclude from this that the translator’s syntactical choices remain the controlling factor for TM, not the other way around.)
