"When I arrived at Northbridge, one of my first tasks was to find a workflow management system. With a Broca demonstration, I saw that the software did exactly what I wanted—and that it was much less complicated and more user-friendly than other tools I had tried. It was like night and day. What’s more, if there’s a feature I need that Broca doesn’t offer, the software developers are always quick to offer me a solution. This means I have everything I need to produce all kinds of reports. I can very efficiently manage the department’s work and follow up on items to ensure no text is late. In fact, some of our clients love Broca so much that they’ve said they wish they had something like in their own department. Broca contains everything translators need: references, instructions, deadlines and more."

Discover Broca’s main features

COLLABORATION HAS NEVER BEEN EASIER.

With Broca’s streamlined communication and request management, you’ll have a smoother ride to delivering quality.

Coordination

STREAMLINE TRANSLATION REQUEST COORDINATION

Creating a new request is a snap, either in-house by the translation department or directly by the client through the secure portal. In the latter case, the client uploads the text to be translated to the portal with their instructions. The text will be delivered using the same medium. Meanwhile, your coordinators can easily divide the work into steps (translation, revision, etc.), or even between several translators, assigning a chunk of the document to each one.

ASSIGN RESOURCES TO THE TASKS

RBroca allows coordinators to note translators’ schedules in order to map the workload and each person’s availability according to a volume you predefine. The system displays the number of words to translate, currently undergoing translation or dispatched externally in real time, both overall and for each translator or reviser.

Ressources
Progression

VIEW YOUR REQUEST’S PROGRESS IN REAL TIME

See who’s doing what at all times. If necessary, modify processes according to new constraints or opportunities. Handle requests more efficiently—and deliver them more quickly.

ASSESS THE QUALITY OF THE WORK

After each revision, revisers can provide feedback to translators. Each person involved in the request can comment on others’ work. This can be valuable information for planning subsequent requests.

Évaluation

... And even more.

Collect data and publish reports

Broca’s reports show resource utilization, the amount of work being outsourced and done internally, which clients are sending the most requests, etc.—critical information required for making key management decisions.

Store and transfer documents securely

Broca’s hosting server architecture and its user-access rights far exceed the highest industry standards. In addition, all communications are encrypted using Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) technology.

Training takes hours, not weeks

Can we get a trial version?

Yes and no. We’ve actually noticed that trial versions of software are rarely put to use—not to mention that they’re never configured correctly. They’re mostly useful for seeing what the interface looks like. However, we believe that online demo software serves that purpose better. Want to discover Broca? Contact us and we’ll get you started.

Will my data really be safe?

Broca is very secure! Without going into too much detail, we have three-tier firewalls and SSL encryption on servers and databases, not to mention that each client has a separate instance to ensure that data is never compromised.

What is software as a service?

Software as a service, or SaaS, is the most current way to get a customized application. It eliminates the need to install software on your existing computers—you just need Internet access and a web browser (Chrome, Safari, Firefox or Internet Explorer) on a Mac or Windows PC.

Can we export our data?

The data you collect in Broca can be exported. If, for any reason, you decide to stop using Broca, we will work with you to convert your data to your preferred format.
