It is like a profession to many interpreters. Being an interpreter, you can provide language interpreter services. The U.S. government considers it compulsory to translate all the documents into English. You should get a professional translation service to ensure that your translation project has accuracy. So far, you may have understood the importance of translation services. Now, let’s study the translation process!

Procedure for getting the Translation Services

There are many ways to get your work of translation done, but the most reasonable steps are detailed here. A professional translator can stick to these steps and do the work. The key point here is that if you know that this profession is not your cup of tea, stop right there!

It is because translating is a mentally demanding task and if you are not ready, you cannot do the best of yourself. Now, let’s study each step that will take you closer to your translated document.

Step 1

The initial step in getting the translation services is to hire a translation agency or look for a translator who can provide the services. You can look for a certified translator if you need certifications as well. While looking for one, you should keep your standard high. Make sure to check the background information, experience, and ratings of the person or agency you will be hiring. Search online as many people are working from home to earn.

Step 2 

Once you have selected a translator, your next step is the evaluation process. In this step, you will have to establish criteria and target language or target audience for which you are getting translations. Make sure to choose the native language of the country to which you are heading. You should decide about the subject matter and turnaround time along with the documents that primarily require translation services.

Step 3

Next, you will send the documents to your translator. While communicating with him, make sure to send details by email. In this step, you should make sure that you have mentioned everything regarding your requirements. If there is any specific format you want your translator to adopt, any headings, or additional points, mention them. Another thing is that; send the copies for the document translations. Do not send the original ones as they are sensitive and used for official purposes.

Step 4

In this step, you will decide the date and time to get your English translation. Usually, it is appropriate to get your work done before two or three days to the actual date when you need them. Select one time that is suitable for you. Do not disturb the translator again and again by reminding him about the deadline. This may irritate him.

Step 5

This step is very essential as it will determine the translation quality. You should decide the translation cost before getting the service.

In this way there will be no misunderstanding between you and the translator. No matter which option you will choose, just make sure to pay off his hard work. It is will only be just if he/she receives the fair payment for working hard.

Step 6

Next, make sure that your initial translation has accuracy and proofreading. To get away from any grammatical errors, translation agencies even use translation software. It should be clear that your work is from a human translator.

Rest, use of translation software can be done for the further quality assessment of the initial translation. Double-check everything before submitting the document because even a single error can cause many problems. You may face submission delays only because of negligence in proofreading.

Step 7

This is the last step as you will be getting an accurate translation of your documents. If you have hired a professional translator, he will surely deliver the initial translation before the actual deadline. But in case there comes a problem and your project is due, be patient and communicate with the translator to know the reason.

Procedure When a Translation Service Goes Wrong

Human errors can occur. If your translation service goes wrong, just submit a review request to your translator. You may face different kinds of problems but rest assured, every problem comes with a solution as well. Some of the common translation errors and their solutions are given here.

Grammatical errors

Sometimes, it becomes hard to outdo every possible grammatical error. This problem may occur due to the complex language structure because each lingo brings about new challenges for the service providers. A translator cannot be qualified if only he is bilingual. If your translation goes wrong in terms of grammatical errors, ask for proofreading.

Moreover, you can suggest your service provider have a genuine grasp of the grammatical differences of both languages. With such knowledge, he/she will be able to alter and rearrange words and phrases to capture the intended meaning in the target language.

Double Meaning Sentences

Your translation may face double-meaning sentences in case you have not hired a native translator. This problem is more common at such times because the translator may have less experience and grip on the target language. But if you look at the other side, you may realize that word-to-word translations become a problem for difficult languages. It is sometimes not easy to translate your file from the original language to the foreign language with no difference.

To overcome this problem, all you have to do is to ask your translator for a revision. Furthermore, mention the errors and sentences that have problems. Use examples to make your problem clear. For instance, explain one or two sentences along with how it is incorrect. Cooperate with your translator since human errors are as normal as making a mistake.

With this much detail about the translation process and problem-solving methods, you will be able to get accurate and quality translations. Hope this article was helpful to you! If you have any queries, simply Contact us!

I spoke to Rafa who quoted me $20 dls per page. I mentioned that the Apostille page hardly had any content to it. He stated that words didn't matter it was per page. So I went to an address in which this company doesn't even exist, just borrowing another company's physical address and left four pages I needed translated. Lupita stated that I should get an email within 48hrs confirming receipt of documents and a quote. Since I didn't receive any confirmation of receipt within the 48 hrs as I was told, I called them again and spoke with Rafa again. Now he says it's going to be $140 dls because of the number of words. Should have paid attention to the HUGE RED FLAGS first of all a business borrowing another's physical address is not good. And to think that I initially went with this company because of having more reviews with a better rating.
