Want to know how? We’ll give you a little preview on what kind of tips you can expect in our free guide.
1. Don’t be modest when it comes to comments and project requirements
When ordering a translation it’s important you express all your wishes and requirements. If your language service provider has all the information, you are more likely to get a fast and high-quality translation.
Be sure to let your language service provider know everything there is to know about your project, so when you get your translation it is exactly what you asked for.
So don’t be shy and express everything that might be relevant to the translator in order to get a perfect translation!
PRO TIP: Have a list of most common words and phrases at hand or ask your LSP to generate one for you. At TAIA we can automatically scan your files for the most common keyphrases and send you a list of suggested translations for them before we even start with the project.
2. Don’t stick to your current language service provider just because you’re used to it
Are you doing what’s best for your company or what’s easiest for you?
Find a language service provider who can offer you fast translation services for various departments in your company. Too many times we see large companies order their translation services with different service providers. Not only is this expensive and time consuming, but it also puts your data at risk. By working with only one LSP you won’t waste time looking for the best translator for every department individually, you’ll cut costs and increase safety of your files. You have to choose the right one, mind!
Ordering all your document translations with only one language service provider that is technologically advanced will also build your TM (translation memory), which means that every subsequent document you order will get translated faster, as your LSP already knows the vocabulary you require in your projects.
But don’t think that every language service provider can offer to build your translation memory. That’s why it’s important to do a thorough research on your LSP.
3. Plan ahead
While planning your project, also take into consideration the time it will take to translate your content. This is important, because even though you can get your translation really fast, it is never a good idea to rush your translator, as this can increase the chance of mistakes.
When planning ahead, you know exactly when you’ll need a language service provider to step in. Call up your LSP and tell them that a project is imminent – this way they’ll be prepared and leave a slot open for your translation.
But if you’re really in a hurry, let them know, because there’s always that extra mile we can go in order to get your document translated faster.
