Measuring the customer’s satisfaction
Another of our clients is Snap Surveys, a leading survey software and research service solutions company based in Bristol in the UK and New Hampshire in the US. Snap Surveys has over 30,000 survey software and Research Services customers worldwide in both private and public sector organisations including, media, leisure, education, health and government.
The research industry has grown dramatically over the last few years particularly with the increase in online and more recently mobile surveys. Snap continues to develop products and services to meet the demand for professional survey solutions.
Snap regularly approach us to provide translations of their online and paper based surveys and responses, both for internal UK and international customer bases. It was in this instance that they were approached by a major premium flooring manufacturer looking for insight into their European markets.
How we answered the brief
Snap Surveys’ client needed their existing multiple choice 2011 Customer Satisfaction Survey to be translated into French, German and Swedish.
In response Snap approached us, as they know we always provide an efficient, quality service and are highly experienced in translating market research surveys. We were tasked with the responsibility of providing a concise and accurate translation of around 4,000 words over the course of 3-4 working days.
Snap provided us with a .txt version of the original survey in English, exported from their own Snap Software format (sn). This meant that the resultant translated versions would be just as professional looking and retain all the original features of the English version.
Our translators were able to work directly with the .txt files, keeping the format consistent to the original and allowing Snap to import them back into their own software, hassle free.
The translations were then proof read by a second qualified translator, before being proof checked in-house and finally delivered back to Snap for their client.
Quite simply, this enabled Snap’s client to fully assess the impact of their customer’s satisfaction with their products being sold in France, Germany and Sweden. This also gave them a greater insight on the impression customers may have of their products throughout Europe as a whole and gain a fuller idea of which markets to concentrate on in the future.
Our high quality translations, combined with Snap’s powerful research software meant the translated surveys were effective, easily understood and that the results were simple to analyse in depth.
