Do You Trust Your Translator? (A Cautionary Tale)

Telephonic Interpreting, Interpreting

Once upon a time, about ten months ago, I moved to a new country in South America.

Eventually I encountered a man who promised me he knew just the company for me, and he said they would definitely help with my visa.

Tips for Preparing for Manufacturing Translation Services [Guide]

Manufacturing, Translation

This post was originally published on January 25, 2017 and has been updated and expanded for freshness.

Here's the deal:

We live in a diverse global environment and our businesses operate in a multlingual world.

It's time to stop viewing translation as a burden and see it for what it really is - an investment and competitive advantage.

Now:

Heavy competition in the global manufacturing sector has altered production processes, leading to a more modernized and automated process, bringing with it shorter product life cycles and increasingly rapid technological advances.

Of course, this rising growth of production has increased content volumes to support new products on a global scale.

Whether you are exporting products internationally, are sourcing materials from different countries, or submitting bids to foreign governments, it’s clear that manufacturers must be able to provide localized content at a quicker pace than ever.

Untranslatable Words: To Be Enjoyed Socially, To Be Heeded In Business

Translation, Culture, Language

“What is he saying?” I asked my bilingual friend while studying Spanish in Chile. He paused, thought about the joke we had both just heard, and then said, “It’s hard to explain.”

I was just learning Spanish but he could speak both English and Spanish fluently, so I couldn’t wrap my mind around his inability to just directly translate.

Take each word, translate it in his mind, and then regurgitate it back in English. That’s all it is, right?

I later learned that sometimes things are hard to translate. Sometimes a word doesn’t have an equivalent in another language and is therefore, untranslatable, or impossible to directly translate without the help of calling upon many other words.
