The Agile Approach
Sometimes, especially in translation, we tend to forget that it’s all about the user. We worry about deadlines, costs and whether our stakeholders are happy with the result.
Putting the end user (meaning: your reader) in a central position is what it means to me to be agile. The user defines:
What content needs to be created and translated, in what order
The speed that language versions need to be published
The quality that is needed to achieve the goal you set for your content
The value your content has
Agile content creation and translation is all about the user. So how do we know what they need? By publishing content fast, measuring the effect and implementing the user’s feedback at the speed of lightning.
I am an agile and lean consultant, focussing specifically on global content. You may know me from my greatest hits:
First publish, then edit
Quality of your content is defined by the speed you can process user feedback
Translate as soon as your content is feedback ready
Use the knowledge and expertise of your translators
Optimize the whole
Find the root cause of your problems before coming up with a solution
