Document translations are probably the most well-known and important type of translation.
This is how our world works! The economies of nations, the workflows of governments, schools, universities and hospitals, the business of companies and the lives of people are all based upon documents.
Without documents, would anyone imagine that our governments, our societies, our communities, and our organizations ─ businesses and NGOs alike ─ would be able to work properly? Without documents, our civilization might not have continued to develop in the first place!
With document translation services, language barriers are crossed. We are able to translate all types of documents, including
Safety notices and zillions of other documents ─ paper and online.
The importance of document translations to businesses
When companies grow, they need to communicate with their customers and prospects in their languages, and thus businesses have to partner with translation companies to translate the documents through which they communicate with their clients ─ such as press releases, user manuals, product usage guides, and marketing brochures and many other business documents.

How to choose a translation agency?
Is it important to choose a professional vendor for the translation of documents? Absolutely. Translation companies differ considerably ─ based on their location, scope of work, the languages they support, the diversity of solutions they deliver, their internal resources, the types of service they offer, the expertise of their teams, the quality of their service, and turnaround time.
So, is there any torch of light to show businesses how to find the right document translation services partner? Let’s together dive into some of the factors that will help you identify the right one.
Let’s put it outright. You need to shy away from any document translation agency where translation is not their core business. You need to establish a strategic, long-term partnership with your translation partner ─ who should be adding value and helping your business to grow and consistently adapt to the demands of overseas markets.
Therefore, if you take the risk of partnering with a translation company, you’ve got to realize that they will undoubtedly outsource all or part of the project to third parties. Outsourcing will definitely add cost to your budget and, worse, reduce accountability. Most probably, you’ll end up receiving low-quality translation at higher prices!
Let’s suppose you’re ambitiously seeking to take your product or service to new target audiences in, say, the United States of America, the United Arab Emirates, Saudi Arabia, or anywhere in the world. Is it feasible from the business standpoint for you to partner with a document translation agency located in Connecticut or with a company that has offices in the Middle east?
It goes without saying that partnering with a document translation company that has offices in these regions will help ensure that your local and global teams will be able to have access to direct contacts during their respective business hours. There’s a great deal of difference between directly contacting staff in their local markets and dealing with dots on a map in virtual offices!
Before you finally choose your document translation company, you need to have an idea about their technological capability. You have to make sure about its management workflow system that combines the translator, project management and client portals.
Also, you need to ensure that their workflow management system is connected to their content management system (CMS) and translation memory tools and, more importantly, to make sure that this system has an API, allowing it to interact with your own company’s translation management system.
Since a project manager will be your focal point for how the project moves forward in the course of implementation, you should make sure that he/she is highly skilled, multi-talented and bilingual.
You need to ensure that the document translation company you select covers various time zones ─ because if they do not, this might wreak havoc in your communications with the company staff in the course of working on your project.
Simply choose the translation company that has offices in different locations. Go for the vendor that provides around-the-clock service support so that you may always be able to communicate with their project managers to make the changes you wish to your project at any time of day.
At the top of the list is that you make sure that your translation partner has in place a rigorous confidentiality policy along with data security processes. Also, you have to sign a nondisclosure agreement (NDA) with it before you give them access to your business files.
Moreover, you have the right to ensure that the translators who are working on your project have already signed NDAs. Sometimes, you might have to also ensure that the translation company’s workflow management platform is secured with the latest SSL encryption technology.
Some questions are still essential, especially when it comes to the financial position of the document translation agency you intend to partner with. What’s their financial position as per their audited accounts for the past years? Do they make profits and are they growing or declining? Do they pay their staff regularly? All these questions will help you figure out if they’re financially secure enough for you to enter into a business relationship with.

How should graphics be translated?
The general rule is to evade putting text into graphics and reserve these callouts as separate elements or with a legend in a table. However, when traditional graphics are used ─ including those created in Illustrator, Photoshop, or Visio ─ It’s better to keep layered files with the text to be translated in a separate layer.
