Translation Workflows Have Clear Tasks and Owners

Monday, November 29, 2010
A translation process is not often given time in the limelight, but it is one that is surprisingly effective as a workflow. Unlike many workflows, it's clear who is in charge of which tasks, and this makes modeling and improving easy. Tasks done by remote workers and outsourced staff are easily managed as well.

We talk about how it is important to divide processes into tasks and assign ownership to each of them in our online document The Golden Rules of Business Process Modeling

In reality, though, there are always exceptional cases, such as urgent jobs that don't have time for a proper check, requesters who want to specify the checker as well as the translator, or translators who want to specify the checker themselves.
