Do your employees do your translating for you? Paying less could cost you more

Google. We all use it if we’re feeling sick or hurting. Unfortunately, Dr Google is not always the best advisor; the best is still ultimately your GP. So, for your translations, the best thing to do is contact the language doctor.

 

Do you let your employee(s) do your translating for you? There’s nothing wrong with that per se. But you still have to watch out for the pitfalls. For example, what if the file formats are complex? Or what about a translation into several languages or where the context is important? Or what if the target language is not your employee’s native language? All in all, it’s quite possible that you could wind up losing valuable time with a definite lack of quality. The consequence? A cheap(er) solution suddenly turns out to cost you a lot more money.

 

Avoid all these worries and contact ElaN Languages, your expert in professional translations.
