5 Things You Can Do To Ensure Your Translations Are Completed in the Least Amount of Time

When working with a translation company, how can you help to get your projects translated faster? Here are a few things you can do on your end to ensure your projects are completed quicker:

Communicate with your translator

When in doubt, check with your translator about the kind of files that are preferred before sending them any files. Be clear about your deadlines with your translator, most translators won’t take the job if they know they can’t finish it before your deadline.

Prepare documents for translation

Before submitting your document to the translation company, double check your work and make sure your final draft is complete. Making changes later after submitting your document will cost more time and money.

WindowZip or Dropbox large files

Instead of sending a large file via email to your translation company, zip them together using the Windows Zip program or Dropbox. Large files can slow down emails programs and increase the amount of time before the translation process can begin.  

Send source files

Projects will cost less and be quicker to translate if the source file is original (.doc or .rtf format). Most files originate in the word-processing format.

Use a qualified translation company

Be sure to use a professional translator to receive quality translations. Poor quality translations can decrease your company’s brand and image.
