Success criteria to consider for every translation:
To help us deliver a quality translation there are some success criteria you should consider for every translation project:
- Take the burden off the words. Judicious use of maps, pictograms and diagrams can be far more effective with international readers than literary ramblings and hyper-technical descriptions. Also avoid culture-bound clichés- references to your national sport may well fall flat abroad. The same can be said for literary/cultural metaphors. Keep some local flavour if you like, but keep this to a minimum. Finalise your text before starting the translation. Tempting as it may be to get your translation project rolling as quickly as possible, having translators work from a draft-in-progress will almost always be more time-consuming – hence more expensive (and probably more frustrating) – than waiting for the final text to be ready. Worse still: the more versions you have, the more likely it is that errors will creep into the final version. Sometimes you have no choice – sometimes deadlines are so tight that work on the translation must begin before you’ve finalised the original text. If this is the case, be sure to time and date-stamp each version and mark changes from one version to the next clearly for your translators.
- Tell the translation company if any words (such as product names) are to be left in English as internationally recognised terms, or localised.
- Indicate whether conversions (e.g. inches to cm, or pounds to kgs) are to be done by the translator.
