LISA Evaluation

The calculation

The following error severity levels are defined:

  1. Minor: Error in translation or grammar that does not impact meaning (weight: 1 point).
  2. Major: Error in translation or grammar that impacts meaning. This can also be any error on Cover, TOC, and other easily detectable and therefore important places (weight: 3 points).
  3. Critical: Meaning of the entire document is compromised. Errors that can cause damage to equipment or user’s injury (weight: 10 points).

XTRF uses the following formula for Quality Index (QI) calculation, which is converted into a 1-to-5 final evaluation of the job:

QI = (1 – Total mistake points / Number of words checked) × 100

You can manage the LISA TQI Threshold for the ratings in Configurations > System: Values Advanced > Ratings.

Total mistake points: 4×1 + 2×3 + 1×10 = 20


QI = (1 – 20/1000) × 100 = 0,98 × 100 = 98


QI > 95 and QI < 98.1, so evaluation based on XTRF's default ratings is 3 (Medium Quality: needs numerous changes).
