In this day and age, businesses online aren’t just an English speaking group of individuals who are able to read anything you have on your website and understand it. Within most instances, around 1/3 of the visitors landing on your website won’t easily understand it.

If you have a desire to do business, whether in the U.S. or on a global basis, it will stand to reason that you must have your site translated into the most typically utilized languages spoken in your target market. Business simply is more global than it once was. I have seen an increase in demand for Swedish translation services over the past couple of years as the Web has begun to level the playing field and permit medium and small sized companies to compete with major companies and to have access to markets situated any place in the world. While many Swedes can read and speak English, they buy in Swedish.

Translation services aren’t all created equally. Most of these services utilize translation techniques which are less than viable for the translation of your important business documents. As that occurs, you open yourself to multiple business problems. It’s essential for a translator to comprehend the culture and the language of the target language for any kind of translation. Comprehending the culture may make a huge difference in making certain your initial message really is understood by your target audience. One simple word for word translation doesn’t always make sense. Some words might possess different meanings, or the message’s context might be highly specific. It may be simple to unintentionally offend your target audience by having the information translated by somebody who doesn’t understand the culture.

Utilizing a professional translator with expertise in your business may result in more than an improved document and a more complete understanding, it may result in bigger return on your investment. Utilizing something less may result in mistakes, errors, and misunderstandings which might cost you lost business or a client. It might seem that utilizing a lower quality or lower priced translation service is harmless, how hard can it be? But the consequences have proven costly.

A handful of the largest organizations compromised their quality and learned a good deal about why they tried saving money on translations and received cheap translations services, and ended up getting what they paid for—poor quality. Especially with documents like legal or medical texts or how-to manuals, having professional translation services which take language, as well as culture and dialect into consideration is imperative.
