Working with You

Successful translation requires collaboration; your input is required so that we can provide you the best possible product:

  • What is the purpose of the translation, the origin of the source document, etc.
  • Provide us with key contacts to help clear up questions/discrepancies quickly.
  • Schedule ample time for translation, formatting and other services. Rush jobs mean higher costs; planning ahead keeps costs down.
  • Have the first draft of the translation proofread before the final copy is produced. Good translation combines the talents of a translator and a proofreader.
  • Let us know if you want the final document returned in standard text or with special formatting.
  • Give us feedback to help improve future collaborations.
