The “benefits” of using cheap Spanish translation

(Last Updated On: March 28, 2019)

We have all been guilty of cutting corners, of opting for the lower price sacrificing quality, of taking the lowest bid. And that could work in some trivial insignificant cases but you shouldn’t go cheap when it comes to Spanish translation services. Here are some of the reasons why:

You do not want to offend your customers, partners or employees

English has many words that are similar to Spanish words. Unfortunately, they don’t have the same meaning. If you use cheap Spanish translation you run the risk of getting a newbie translator’s mistakes. Even reasonably intelligent foreigners who have stayed for years immersed in a Spanish-speaking country readily admit that they still make basic errors that they should have mastered by now. Small errors might be a huge deal for some translation purposes, but for businesses they could be detrimental. Even a small error as the gender or tense of a word might cause your clients or partners to think twice about doing business with you.  You could lose the respect of your Hispanic employees and they will laugh behind your back.

You don’t want to be embarazada and people will think you are intoxicado. Oops. (embarazada – pregnant) (intoxicado – poisoned)

Using cheap Spanish translation could become a legal mess

Cheap Spanish translation services might pass for things like translating personal letters or novels. But companies looking to do business with Spanish-speaking companies or people will want to have contracts and legal documents to be submitted to the government to be translated. The wording in these type of documents is definitely much complex than a novella script. A small error in a contract could mean losing a lot of money with legal harangues. A small error in documents to be submitted could cause rejections of applications and cause delays of projects which would also mean losing money.

People will think your company is failing

Why else would you cut corners in the translation budget? Go big or go home.

There are many things that you could do to save money but scrimping on Spanish translation services is not one of them.

Spanish Translation

The translation industry is expanding at a fast pace, and it’s generating a huge demand for Spanish translators and Spanish translation services globally. Translation agencies are struggling to get a piece of the market, but to reach that they are creating a run to sell translation services for the cheapest prices possible. But Is it the quality of the final translation worth paying for it at all?

Hiring cheap Spanish translation services and ending up with a worthless final text can harm your business reputation due to grammar errors, spelling mistakes, lack of transparency, offensive and culturally unfeeling content. Sometimes buying cheap translations will lead to an extra charge: hire a proofreader to double check your text after it is delivered to make sure that the translation
is genuine and correct, if the grammar is on point, if it makes sense to your target audience, and if it is culturally relevant.

Spanish-translation-cheap

Spanish Translation is being widely used for a variety of purposes. People use Spanish translation services for localizing their apps, websites and so much more. But the real key is to be wise with what you choose.

As you must be aware of the software that are being used for translations and how all they did is just put the translated words in a given language. A company offering cheap services might only use that for your service and paste the results there.

But what would be the consequences then? Having all text but no relevance, no value, no true meaning, it would be a disaster. So here’s the right thing that you can do. Make sure you go for quality, not that it is always overpriced but it can’t be cheap. Moreover, you must understand that you are paying for their expertise in the industry which they have gained over years and you can’t compare it with how easy it is for them. For they mastered it after spending a lot of time in the industry.

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.

Been trying to contact them on their online chat and it does not work. Been trying for days since I am out of town and wanted to have it ready upon my return.++++Apparently you didn't believe me, so there is the proof that I am not lying. I reiterate my rating.
