LiveReview: A real-time feedback for increased efficiency

Introducing LiveReview, a feedback tool enabling real-time, two-way conversation that eliminates the need for back and forth emails. Processing is done efficiently by automating stages and so removing unnecessary manual steps. This means our project managers and linguists can focus more on the quality assurance stages.

LiveReview technology overview

Global Lingo utilises the industry-leading XTM to power our Translation Management System (TMS) platform and to manage our projects and operational processes. Our TMS allows us to process different file formats in the most efficient manner, with little or no manual input. This includes Microsoft Office, Google Docs, complex eLearning courses, tagged content exported from databases, websites and product catalogues, as well as designed document files such as CAD, InDesign, Illustrator and Photoshop.

Files are handled securely end to end and file processing is automated as much as possible, ensuring file structure is not altered or corrupted. This ensures translated files behave exactly as expected when used, which is especially important for software, website, eLearning and e-Commerce localisation.

How LiveReview can help your business

Thanks to GloZone, clients can upload content, and this can be fully managed until delivery without ever leaving our secure online platform. Our TMS offers a variety of features that increase the productivity of both internal processes and linguists. Our clients benefit from easily customisable automated workflows, where the content will move through the production steps without any need for micromanagement.


Once the translator completes their task, the translated content progresses automatically to the proofreader. The proofreader receives a notification and will be able to access the content for review. Project managers supervise the entire process by simply checking the status of the project on the TMS itself. The client has the ability to follow each step and collaborate where necessary if desired.

These interactive live previews of the content (LiveReview) allow linguists and clients to translate and review in-context simultaneously. This is particularly useful when client reviewers wish to be involved in discussions with our translators. This is facilitated in a simple way by sharing screens, examples and notes in a collaborative manner. As a result, reviewers spend less time reviewing, amending and signing off translations.

This leads to a more efficient, streamlined and prompt service for clients. Customisable workflows support review cycles where one, two or more stages of review and sign-off are required.

Live chat features also allow more active real-time collaboration to achieve higher consistency from the outset. This is especially beneficial during high-volume projects with tight deadlines when multiple linguists are involved. Global Lingo linguists are able to collaborate in a more effective manner.
