Translation Essentials


Translation is the “communication of the meaning of a source language text by means of an equivalent target language text” (Wikipedia) but for us in the language industry, translation is a whole business process related to creating new language versions of various types of content. This process can have a major impact on success (or the lack of it) in international sales, brand awareness and community building. Translation Essentials is where you will find a comprehensive guide to translation services. Welcome!

We have divided our content into 5 segments:

  1. The Essential Elements of a Translation Process
  2. Types of Translation
  3. Translation Price and Performance
  4. What a Translation Agency Does for You (Other Than Translation)
  5. Translation Management at Your Company

The content will lead you step by step through everything you need to know about translation. Acquiring this knowledge will most probably make you the most competent person in the room when it comes to your company’s multilingual efforts. You will be the best fit to bring this knowledge to your company and, maybe, take on the responsibilities of a translation coordinator.
