Google Translate is an automated translation service provider which is free and readily available. This sort of automated translation provider can be of some use for basic vocabulary translation but cannot be depended on for a sound and correct translation of longer texts. Automated translation could result in the use of wrong words that simply don’t fit into a text at all.
Freelance Translators are a Possible Choice for Your Ideal Translation Service
Freelance translators are by and large self-employed so that means you can’t be sure of the quality of the translator as it’s not possible to check credentials so easily. However, it’s a good idea to go through your chosen translator’s profile to find out if the person is a good fit for your translation project. Most translators who have a good reputation will have an up-to-date profile easily available for you to access. Also, good translators should provide a sample of their work. Freelance translators are a very viable option for smaller projects. If you are hiring for bigger projects and you require very tight deadlines, a freelance writer may not be the best option but your ideal translation service could be a bigger company with a larger range of languages covered.
Translation Companies Good for Larger Projects
This is generally considered the best and most reliable option. Translation companies engage full-time translation professionals who work constantly on a single project and then move onto another one. They stay engaged with the latest updates on providing the best outcome for a translation project. Many translation services offer a 24/ 7 online service and manage up to 90 languages through their network of translators. They are used to handling website translations which include numerous content pages in a short space of time. If you choose this option be sure that your type of product can easily be handled by their team.
Whatever you eventually decide on for your ideal translation services make sure the project manager assigned to your translation job provides you with the first translated pages for you to view before continuing with the rest of the project. You don’t want to be sent a bill and then find the quality and style doesn’t quite fit your product’s requirements.
