Logrus International CEO, Leonid Glazychev, introduces the Universal Quality Triangle Methodology and all three independent quality apexes around which this methodology is built: Holistic Readability, Holistic Adequacy, and Atomistic Quality. With particular attention paid to the key topic of making real-life LQAs as objective as possible, understanding statistical limitations, and minimizing the effect of inevitable subjectivity inherent in any human LQA, the presentation also provides general guidelines on the quality assurance process, including why we always need to start with holistic language quality measurement, and why quality cannot be reduced to a single rating assigned to the text (however convenient it appears on paper) without significant distortion of the result.
Leonid graduated with honors from the Moscow Physico-Technical Institute (Russia), specializing in theoretical physics (plasma) and computer simulation. In 1993 Leonid co-founded Logrus, the first professional translation and software localization company in Russia, and has served as the company’s CEO since then. True to his scientific background, Leonid continues his research and publishes papers on such issues as Language Quality Assurance Methodology, Quality Process, industry revelations and myths, and more. He is always trying to bring a hard-core, fundamental, objective and unbiased scientific approach and knowledge to the areas traditionally popular with project managers and linguists.
