(Last Updated On: February 13, 2015)

There are some vital elements to consider for effective, successful, and productive translation process. These procedures are not necessarily implemented during the translation. In fact, some important actions must be taken, before you actually start translating your content. The best translation agency such as ISO Translations  has a skilled team who can perform the work accurately.

Prior to the translation process and when you are initially trying to write your original content, it is essential to inform your content writers and authors that the content they are writing will be translated into different other languages; therefore, it is substantial to make sure of content flexibility, and its validation to be translated into multiple languages. If you have more than one writer working on your content, it is very important to coordinate among them to ensure high quality and consistent writing material that would help validate and facilitate the translation process. Consequently, this could make you spare some extra costs while translating your content, because it will enable you to avoid major inconsistency mistakes during the writing phase that you can’t ignore, which will lead to make some alterations during the translation process. One of the main methods to guarantee high quality and valid content is to make sure that it sticks to established writing and authoring standards, and this as well helps in avoiding some excessive costs during the process.

Setting Up an Efficient and Successful Translation Process

At the beginning of the translation process, it is recommended to tell your professional translators about what sentence structure and terminology you want them to adopt through the process. Thus, it would be proper to provide them with the necessary material reference and to give them the desired approach in which you prefer them to undertake during the translation process.

It is also important at the beginning of the translation to establish and maintain a channel of communication with the project manager to stay in touch with the process developer. As it will give your project manager the required degree of authority that allows him effectively to manage the project in its various aspects such as project’s budget determination, defining the scope of the project, maintain adequate environment, and efficiently respond to translators’ demands and requirements.

A major role played by the project manager is to establish and control the project’s timeline and to ensure strict time schedules, as well as planning and supervising the stages of the translation process. Conducting well-planned and structured process with no doubt will guarantee high quality and productive global content.
