Let us now discuss the points to remember before hiring a translation service:-
1) Do they look like a professional translation service?
A professional translation agency presents itself in an expert way. Check if they have proper web page, with no errors. They should have own and professional domain name. They should not be using free AOL page started years ago and never updated. There should be an email account that is linked to their web page. There should be proper contact information on their web page and should be updated regularly in case of any change. When all these things are covered by the agency, then you can connect with them for the further translation service.
2) Is their information easy to find?
As mentioned earlier their email account and contact number should be linked to their web page. If their website is hard to find, drop them and find some other translation service. A professional translation service address should be available on skype, email, social media etc. Do not waste your time on some unprofessional translation service. Also check out the reviews from clients. The more positive reviews, more is the chance to get professional translation work.
3) Is the professional translation service willing to discuss your project?
A professional translation services will always be ready to discuss about your project and the process of translation. If they don’t discuss in detail about your project then take it as a sign that they will not pay proper attention and time on your project. A translation company will want to meet and exceed their clients’ expectations. The company would exchange ideas on the betterment of translation work and ensuring everything is transparent.
4) What is the pricing structure for the professional translation service?
One of the main problems of translation company websites is that there is no information of the price they charge for a translation project. If I’m a client who is looking to hire a translation company, I’ll be much more inclined to hire a company that will give me some idea on pricing. Especially if it’s the first time I’ll be hiring a translation service provider. The translation company should at least provide approximate pricing structure so that you will be able to know that you can pay them or have to find some other translation company. Discuss about the translation cost per page and compare with other services to see if suits your need. Many professional translation agencies would offer competitive price along with quality work.
5) Who is going to work on the project and relevant experience does he/she have?
If you decide to hire a translation company instead of a sole freelance translator, you should know who is going to do your project and what all skills he/she has that makes them fit for your project. Every project is going to be different. You should make sure that the translator who is going to take over your project should be skilled enough to understand and meet your expectations.
6) Can they provide the reference of their past work?
Past work is best for finding a good professional translation service provider. Certifications can be made by themselves and they don’t mean much. Even client testimonials can end up being fake, but if you have reference for the previous work of the translation company, you can go through it and compare if they can meet your requirement. Do check their reference and connect with clients having worked with them.
7) What kind of other services does the translation service provider offer?
If you know that you are going to meet additional services in future for the same project, look for the translator provider who can provide all those services along with translation project so that you don’t have to find other service provider for the finished product you want. Extra services can be like formatting, desktop publishing etc.
