Purpose of project
The Technology Consultant will work with the Translation Department to assess our current use of technology, identify gaps in our current processes, and then propose solutions to improve our use of technology and offer new services.
The scope of work can be broken down into three main tasks, as outlined below:
- Develop recommendations for optimizing the use of CAT tools
- Develop recommendations with regards to offering machine translation and related services
- Develop recommendations with regards to offering localization services
This project will take approximately 3 months, starting late June 2019.
We’re looking for proposals from interested consultants outlining how they will approach the project, proposed work plan, estimated timelines and cost, as well as a summary of qualifications and previous experience on similar projects. MCIS will consider engaging one consultant to work on all 3 projects or different consultants for each, depending on skills and expertise.
