SAE J2450 QA Model

SAE J2450 is one of the default QA models which your company can use to structure the feedback given by reviewers on the quality of translations. The feedback categories and severities defined in the model are made available to reviewers in the Reviewer Grading window.

 

In the SAE J2450 QA model, errors are categorized as Minor or Serious. For example if a segment contains one minor and one major misspelling, you would enter 1 in the Minor column and 1 in the Serious column for Misspelling.

When you enter a number in a category it is multiplied by a weighting figure. The weighting figures can be seen in the table below. For example, under Misspelling, if you record two minor misspellings they will give a score of 2. But if you record two serious misspellings, they will give a score of 6.

Scores for all segments in the task are added together to give a total score for the task. If the overall quality of the task falls below a predefined threshold, the task will fail the SAE J2450 check.

The pass or fail status of the check is for information only. A failed task can be submitted to the next stage as usual.
