Three Questions To Ask A Translation Company

When it comes to finding the right translation company to deliver professional and high-quality translation service, it can be difficult. After all, there are so many different translation providers out there who offer a variety of translation services and linguistic solutions in the UK. Not only do you want the highest standard of translations to represent your business; but customer service must be excellent to ensure a smooth and quick process.

As the UK’s leading provider of translation services, Absolute Translations have compiled a list of three questions you should ask prospective translation companies in order to find a good quality translation service:

What kind of experience do your translators have?

The years of experience and specialism translators have can vary greatly between companies. Every translation company will have different criteria for recruiting translators so it’s important to ask about the experience of their team. For example, at Absolute Translations, we require each of our native-speaking translators to have a minimum of 5 years’ experience before working with us. All of our team specialise in a variety of subject matters including marketing, financial and legal translation; as well as working and living in a number of key locations around the world.

Do you use any translation software or tools?

Translation memory software and CAT tools can help you save time and money on a translation project; particularly if you have worked with the translation company previously. These software and tools are not the same as a machine translator. Instead, they are used by human translators to make the translation process more efficient and build translation memory. At Absolute Translation, we don’t believe in machine translations but we do believe in technology! We use the latest CAT tools and software to create a database of your previously approved translations. The team will then use this to keep track of terminology; update translation guidelines and avoid any duplicated content.

If you’re looking to find a high-quality translation company with the ability to translate in over 200 languages; why not speak to the professional team at Absolute Translations. With over a decade of experience in the industry, our translation service delivers specialist translations that are accurate and localised to your target audience.
