Three translation services your business could benefit from

When it comes to looking for a translation service for your business, there is no one-size-fits-all solution. Just as no two businesses are exactly alike, you need to keep in mind that finding the right translation for a specific purpose isn’t as simple as just hopping onto social media and asking if anyone can translate Italian into English.

As technology has evolved, so have the tools we use to deploy it and the language we use to communicate. While there will always be a need to have an expert sitting in on a board meeting to make sure everyone understands each other, you need to be aware that sometimes you might need something a little more specific. Here are just a few of the translation services your business could benefit from.

Legal and certification translation

It goes without saying that any company conducting business internationally will want to feel reassured that translated material they are receiving, and indeed sending, is 100% accurate. Good faith is wonderful, but it’s not a substitute for a stamp of certification, and that’s why you need to make sure that you are employing the services of an agency that is authorised to offer that. There’s also notarised translation, which shows the translation that has been provided is trustworthy.

Back translation

As we mentioned, so much of the stress around translation when it comes to business boils down to the question of accuracy. No one wants to find themselves in a position where they have missed a small but important nuance in the original text, or indeed to discover that a blunder by a translator may have massive consequences going forward. Say you need to translate Italian to English, but you want to double-check every little detail.

Back translation is a deceptively simple but crucial step in the translation process, which is the translation of the translated material back into its original language by an independent translator. If it matches the original text, all is well. London Translations only employs mother-tongue linguists to ensure that their back translation services are impeccable.

CMS translation

Over the past year, we have all seen just how vital an optimised, highly functioning web presence is for any business, regardless of size. As the world locked down, offices were closed and everyone relied more and more on online searches to find what they needed. Maintaining that website went from being something to get around to when there are a few quiet days in the schedule to the task that is double-checked first thing every morning. Offices may be reopening but the virtual business landscape isn’t going anywhere.

If your business has a significant number of potential customers and clients coming in from overseas, do you really want to rely on free translation software to make sure they find what they’re looking for? A professional CMS translation service makes sure that the website can be understood by people from your target areas at no cost to the coding or performance, giving you standardised translation to help you stay ahead of the competition around the world.
