Furthermore, whilst the English language will continue to play a very important role in the EU, it is also likely that ‘providing everything in English’ will no longer be enough and this documentation will need to be translated.
A guide to working with professional and qualified translators and interpreters
The use of professionally produced translation and interpreting services is a necessity to help your company grow when exporting. Whatever your industry, it is vital for the translation provider to understand the technicalities of your company’s products or services.
So when commissioning a translation/interpreting agency, it is essential, that you find the right long-term partner for your business. As with any supplier, the longer you work with them, the better they will understand your business philosophy, strategy and products and the more effective and accurate their translations will be.
They will create data records including terminology, specific to your industry and company and its products/services to be used for uniformity, when translating your documentation.
Regardless of the size of an organisation, accurate translations, in which all colloquialisms and cultural references are correct, add great value to any business. Every piece of research shows that by communicating effectively in the language of an export target market, companies can expand opportunities to build relationships and sell their products and services globally, both on and offline. However, be wary of taking shortcuts or trying to save money by using non-professionals to create your translations. So often this can lead to comical outcomes. This may raise a smile, but a more likely outcome is damage to a company’s credibility and reputation. It is only by accessing the right services from the right professional language company that bear traps can be avoided and the opportunities to develop new overseas markets can be maximised.
