The translation of election ballots is serious business. The integrity, accuracy and impartiality of the ballot—in any language—is at the heart of the democratic process.
Developed by a team of professional linguists at Prisma International, the exclusive BALLOTrans™ process ensures that English-language ballots are translated with the highest regard for quality and accuracy, using a “double-blind” methodology that combines the best human translators with state-of-the-art technology to manage the translation process.
Our translators work in 188 languages and dialects, and are tested and certified to the exacting standards of the BALLOTrans™ Linguistic Certification Program, which includes Federal Election Commission (FEC) training and compliance.
The BALLOTrans™ Process is fully-auditable, transparent and aligned with the technology requirements of most voting technologies and systems, thus ensuring translation accuracy right up to the ballot box.
