If you are expanding your business, you are probably considering translating your website into another language. Good planning is critical when starting any website translation project.
It is important to pick which languages that you want to translate your website into. The languages you select will depend on your target market and customer. You should also set a budget, develop a project schedule and select a good translation provider.
A good translation provider will work with a professional translator who is an expert in the country and language you are targeting. They will understand the local culture and ensure that your original message is not lost. Finally, they will work with your web developers to make sure the symbols and colours used on your website are appropriate.
After you select the translation provider, you should also decide how you will communicate with them, including how you will send and receive files and project status reports. You should also decide how you will test and check the quality of the final work. A good translation provider will be able to help you with this.
