Do You Need Professional Translation Services?
Document translation companies offer a number of benefits for companies of all sizes. However, not every company can take advantage of their services. Here are some of the key signs you need to use professional translation services for a document or project:

1. Translating an English document to a local dialect. Even though a country or a whole culture may share the same language, different regions would have different 'twists' or nuances for the same language. You cannot just translate an English document into Spanish. Spanish speakers in Mexico would have a different tone and vocabulary from native Spaniards. A professional service will be able to localize or translate your document for a specific dialect.

2. The document needs to be translated in 24 to 72 hours. If you are working with a freelance translator, you may need to wait between 7 and 10 business days in order to get your document back. A professional translation company often accepts 'urgent' status projects, which means you can have your copy back in as little as three days, and in some cases, overnight. This can be helpful when you are working on a very tight deadline, or instances where you need high quality work in a very short period of time.

3. You have no prior experience with sending your document for translation. Hiring a professional company ensures that you get your documents translated right on your first try. A lot of professional companies only hire accredited native speakers and place a guarantee on their service.

4. Your documents are for a highly-specialized industry. Aside from employing native speakers, document translation companies often have experts on various fields working as translators. Translating a document is not as simple as replacing English words with words from another dialect; you also have to take into account the content and the audience of your document. For instance, having a lawyer translate your legal documents will ensure that the translated documents will retain their technical accuracy.

5. You don't have time to ship or mail documents. With today's advances in technology, many document translation companies work entirely online. This means you can scan your documents and send them as large file, send e-mail attachments of Word or .PDF documents, or even upload files to a main document platform. This makes the entire document translation process efficient and simple, and ensures you have a record of all communications.

More and more businesses are relying on document translation services. The service can be used for a variety of reasons such as marketing and advertising, publishing, for legal purposes or simply for presenting a document to a new client overseas. Whether you are a small firm or a multi-national corporation, get started with document translation services and look for a professional company online that would fill your needs.

When you need translation services for a legal contract, financial statement, deposition, patent, letter, or other important document, Legal Translation Solutions provides document translation services and can complete it for you quickly and correctly.

Choosing The Right Translation Company
Translation companies can take the stress out of translating documents for your business. The only important thing you have to do is to choose the company that would best fulfill your needs. Screening companies can take some time and effort but you have to ensure that a company will deliver quality translations that are within your budget and deadline.

When searching for a document translation company, you should first consider a company's translation process. Check if the company requires you to send documents offline (fax or snail mail) or online. See if they accept documents as e-mail attachments or if they would require you to scan a document physically.

The second thing to consider is the types of services available. Many document translation companies offer specialized or 'niche' services because they have a team of translators that have experience and knowledge in particular fields. For example, they may assign your marketing brochure translation project to a translator with a business background, while your scientific reports would be assigned to someone with a science and technical background. Companies that do this will, in most cases, deliver a higher quality product. Verify whether they have a team of specialists, or if they use machines or software programs to perform the translation.

The third thing to consider when searching for the right document translation company is what the price structure is. Some companies offer flat-rate pricing based on the number of pages or words in the project, while others calculate prices based on the type of language, urgency, niche or subject of the document, and the number of words. Make sure you are aware of their pricing formula so you are aware of any surcharges, extra fees and costs that may be added to your project.

The fourth item to consider is what type of customer support you will have throughout the process. Depending on the size of your project, you will need to be in touch with a support agent to ensure that all documents have been received properly, and that you are aware of the expected delivery time. Most document translation companies will assign you an account or project manager as soon as you submit your first set of documents, and these individuals will serve as your contact throughout the process.

A final factor that must be considered before choosing a document translation company is the company's credentials. Some companies are members of translation associations such as the American Translators Association, and TRANSLEX International. What these associations do is ensure the quality of services by requiring translators of member companies to undertake training and certification programs. This practice will ultimately benefit consumers and the translation industry as a whole.

Choosing the right document translation company for your projects can be challenging, but taking the time to learn about the company's policies, procedures, rates and overall process can help you make the best decision.
