FormatChecker: the software supports in improving the quality of document formatting

This software helps users to check the format of documents efficiently and quickly before starting a translation project. Any problem in the source file will be handled also in the target. It will also occur in all the subsequent versions of the same document. 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, in the source document, before submitting the text for translation. You don’t have to correct errors in several target languages.
