FormatChecker: software improving the quality of document formatting

This software enables users to check document formatting efficiently and quickly before starting a translation project. Any problem in the source file will occur also in the target. It will also occur in all the variants and subsequent versions of the same document. That is why it is important to check for such problems at the very beginning, when creating the source document. Correcting a minor formatting mistake is easy, but correcting it in several versions will take some time, and on a Friday afternoon, with the deadline of the project fast approaching, you are bound to make a mistake. Use the STAR FormatChecker to eliminate typographical and formatting errors from your documents at the very beginning, in the source document, before submitting the text for translation. You will thus avoid correcting errors in several target languages.

FormatChecker offers the following key benefits:

  • Time and costs savings in the graphic processing of documents in all versions
  • Increasing quality, compatibility and document leverage
  • Creating documents to a high technical standard
  • Text processing facilitation
  • Permanent solutions for maximum formatting quality

FormatChecker can check for 40 formatting errors (and offer solutions for them),
such as:

  • a paragraph created by a line break
  • positioning text using space or tab
  • unsuitable image or table anchor position
  • using font clones or a large number of font families
  • manually created cross-referencing
  • typographically incorrect inverted commas or hyphens
  • manual hyphenation, etc.

FormatChecker is compatible with the following software:

  • Microsoft Word 2000 for Windows or higher
  • Adobe FrameMaker 5.5 or higher
  • a version for QuarkXPress is soon to be released
