Agenda of Past Meetings
|EUG 1 Wednesday 29 June - 5PM CET||
Kickoff and planning
DQF supports productivity and quality tracking which need to be mapped onto the corresponding tasks and activities. Knowing that there are differences in the usage of terms in the industry at large, we need to provide a DQF-neutral terminology. After research, consultation and a survey we decided to adopt Translation and Review as main processes and Correction and Error Annotation as sub-processes within Review.
|EUG 2 Wednesday 13 July - 5PM CET||
Quality has long been a debated topic and DQF aims at providing an industry-wide solution for quality benchmarking. In order to achieve this, we need to ensure that the current quality thresholds in use are still relevant for the users. A general two-tier approach to quality levels works for most companies. The two levels are further identified with (high-quality) human translation and MT (+ Post-editing).
|EUG 3 Wednesday 10 August - 5PM CET||
Fitting industry sectors and content types into a limited list of options is not an easy task and there are always exceptions. However, having categories where companies feel represented and that are broad enough to include multiple players is critically important for effective benchmarking. This is why we are looking at the current list with a critical eye.
|EUG 4 Wednesday 24 August - 5PM CET||
Use case: eBay
The results of the consultation on DQF Nomenclature were presented and the Resolution was approved almost unanimously. Quality levels are intended to set the right expectations for the deliverables and DQF requires them at project creation. The Resolution on Quality Levels has been postponed until the following call.
|EUG 5 Wednesday 14 September - 5PM CET||
The results of the consultation on DQF Quality Levels are discussed and voted upon to achieve a wide agreement on the quality expectations to be selected in DQF. A second discussion topic pertains the list of content types and sectors to ensure proper mapping of the large variability of enterprise users for accurate benchmarking.
|EUG 6 Wednesday 28 September - 5PM CET||
Discussion topic: Resolution: Sectors (vote) |
DQF is integrated in multiple translation technologies so it needs to work seamlessly with these tools. The summary will address how some language locales should be handled. The discussion will introduce the main topic of the User Group Call which centers around the core feature of the Enterprise Solution: receiving statistics directly from the translation tools.
