Linguistic Quality Assurance Error Density

LQA errors can be recorded and arbitrated in the CAT Tool, on any LQA-enabled workflow step. Error Density is the quantity of errors recorded on translations, per 1,000 word volume. The report is an opportunity for content owners to get an overview of the total error count, as well as some granularity over the density of errors per project, language, and Job. This insight allows for revision of vendor agreements, such as SLA's.
