Why I Won't Learn Esperanto
From time to singles groups in mankato mn time people ask me about Esperanto.

Is it worth learning?

What are the singles groups in mankato mn benefits of being able to speak it?

Will it help me learn another language?

Well… I’ve decided to answer these questions finally.

I’ve gone into quite a bit of detail on the main reasons why I have absolutely zero interest in ever learning it and why I would not recommend it to anybody inquiring about its ‘benefits’.

Now, I know this will probably stir up a beehive (I wish I could say I’m sorry but facts don’t care about hurt feelings) though I do want to make it clear that if you do love Esperanto and it’s something you’re passionate about, I’m not trying to shoot you down in flames or discourage you here.

It sounds like I am but believe me I’m not.

By all means, pursue what you love.

While I’m personally not overly interested in constructed languages generally (conlangs for deutsche dating seite für gamer short), I do understand how they’re a fun hobby for many people and I find a lot of the work put into their creation seriously impressive.

As you’ll see here, my reasons for having no desire to learn Esperanto have very little to do with it being a conlang per se (or pointless arguments about its vocabulary or syntax).

Ready?

Let’s get started.

 

I always say that if you want to get to the bottom of what any movement is all about, look at its founder and origin first.

Who developed Esperanto and why was it developed?

If you think that Esperanto is just a basic constructed language put together by a language nerd back in the 1800’s that went viral, you’re wrong.

I also made the mistake of thinking its purpose was that simple.

Unlike other conlangs, Esperanto is 100% ideologically motivated.

It was made with a serious political objective in mind which still drives its propagation even today.

The language has always been used as a means to a political end (which is why dictatorships actively sought to suppress it in the early 20th century).

The bloke who created it,, developed a political and religious philosophy (a cultish offshoot of Judaism that looked more like something straight out of The Communist Manifesto).

It’s clear that Zamenhof envisaged his made-up, simplified language as facilitating the breaking down of national and religious identity which he despised in his own community (including patriotism which he regarded as something evil). He also quite intolerantly spoke of free religious expression as a “barbarity”.

It’s this ideological baggage and taint that’s attached to the language that turns me off it completely.

Esperanto is the glossolalia of the faithful.

It also explains why so many dedicated Esperantists are by nature politically extreme.

Which gets me to my next point:

 

Wherever you travel, you meet people of all different persuasions.

No matter what language you learn, you’ll meet speakers all the time from the far left to the far right of the political spectrum. You’ll also meet non-believers, nominal believers, the devout and the extreme.

This is a normal thing.

This is a human thing.

The most crucial kind of diversity is the diversity of thought and opinion.

When you lose that, society’s in big trouble.

Communities everywhere around the world are filled with people who think very different things to each other and it’s this freedom that defines a healthy society.

Esperanto, being the ideological tool that it is, opposes this.

Even with constructed languages like Tolkien Elvish or Na’avi for example, if you look at the enthusiasts, you’ll find a wide array of people from all sorts of ideological backgrounds. They might be completely opposed to each other as far their opinions of the world are concerned but they come together for a common passion that they both share.

Now, I’m not saying that there absolutely aren’t any learners of Esperanto who don’t care about its politics or aren’t part of the status quo (see for example).

I went to NASK [North American Summer Esperanto Institute] a couple of times and felt totally isolated politically, and I’m not even the farthest right person I know. There are some great people at NASK and a lot of people willing to argue without getting offended, but a whole bunch of extreme far leftists who are OF COURSE politically correct (correct in their political views, as well as being PC beyond all reason).

I’m sure you could quite easily learn Esperanto without ever losing your mind as someone on the periphery of acceptable thought.

But since languages exist to enable us to communicate with a wider community of speakers, it’s imperative to ask yourself what kind of community are you restricting yourself to exactly?

Where’s the fun in spending time with ideological clones?

 

Without doubt the most common and sensible reason why myself and so many others are turned off Esperanto is that it has no authentic culture.

Esperanto has no country or geographical ties to an ancestral homeland.

Unlike natural languages, you don’t learn Esperanto because you’re fascinated by a country, people group or location.

Outside of a few crackpots who decided to turn their kids into circus acts by raising them with Esperanto as a first language, it has no inter-generational identity or national/tribal history.

It’s therefore the same as any other conlang in this regard.

But…

Esperantists always and predictably fire back with:

“Umm… you’re wrong. We do have a culture. We have Esperanto music, food, events, literature… etc.

To which I reply that this shows an incredibly shallow and poor understanding of what culture actually is.

It’s exactly this kind of ignorant interpretation of the term ‘culture’ that I denounce in almost everything I do and write.

And it’s not just me:

…culture is defined as the shared patterns of behaviors and interactions, cognitive constructs, and affective understanding that are learned through a process of socialization. These shared patterns identify the members of a culture group while also distinguishing those of another group.”

This:

“Most social scientists today view culture as consisting primarily of the symbolic, ideational, and intangible aspects of human societies… The essence of a culture is not its artifacts, tools, or other tangible cultural elements but how the members of the group interpret, use, and perceive them.

And then singles groups in mankato mn this:

“Culture: learned and shared human patterns or models for living; day- to-day living patterns. these patterns and models pervade all aspects of human social interaction. Culture is mankind’s primary adaptive mechanism.”

These are just a few of the excellent definitions of ‘culture’ on for the University of Minnesota’s Center for Advanced Research on Language Acquisition.

Look at the terms used to describe culture here.

Intangible aspects of human societies, patterns of behaviors and interactions, cognitive constructs.

Culture is an incredibly deep and multi-layered phenomenon.

To limit it to things like music and cuisine is insanely ignorant and unfortunately indicative of how a lot of modern treat culture even outside the Esperanto community.

These people limit culture to things like food, clothing and performances which means that ironically the people who are often the most vocal about cultural diversity are also usually the most culturally naïve.

Culture is infinitely more complex than kebabs, concerts and grass skirts.

The original goal for Esperanto in fact conflicts with the very nature of human cultures as defined above which serve to separate and distinguish humans as unique groups.

 

So yeah, the extreme thing.

Discussing Esperanto with an Esperantist is like discussing theology with a Jehovah’s Witness or animal rights with a PETA activist.

They have every single response memorized to the letter and argue until you give up.

They’ll try to convince you that even the gods themselves speak Esperanto.

It’s this extreme zeal that makes everything online written by Esperantists about Esperanto so horrid and unbearable to read.

But again this comes back to the ideological motivation that drives it.

We’re not just talking about a language here but a political movement.

As you probably know by now, I’m passionate about.

I like to tell people about it and share my experiences.

But if somebody gives me a reason why they don’t like it or have no reason to pursue it, I don’t go on the offense to try and convince them that Arabic is the greatest linguistic achievement in the history of mankind.

I frankly don’t care if you hate it.

Most Esperantists however are self-appointed evangelists.

 

Any third language you learn is going to be easier than your second language.

Your fourth language is going to be a little easier than your third.

In fact, the more you learn, the easier it all becomes because (a) you become familiar with various language families and a wider range of shared vocabulary and (b) your metalinguistic awareness increases.

This means that the more grammatical concepts you get your head around, the easier it becomes for you to recognize them in other languages.

So naturally, Esperanto is going to make you more aware of how, say, languages work.

But it won’t necessarily save you any time and in fact is more likely to delay your real goals of learning the language you actually want to learn.

It would be like learning the guitar because you really want to learn the violin.

Sure you’ll learn about music theory, get a bit of familiarity with a string instrument that’s kinda similar but at the end of day, if you spend 6 months learning the guitar, that’s 6 months you could have been investing into the violin.

More importantly this is time you should be spending with your target language community.

This is the time that you should be using to .

My first language took years for me to pick up serious momentum and I was really slow at first but those first months and years were the most important, formative years for me in terms of acculturation.

The whole process of spending time with the target language community even though you’re grappling with difficult, new language concepts, is so incredibly important.

Not just important. Crucial.

And instead you want to hang out with a political cult and learn a practically useless conlang?

Talk about epic time wasting.

 

Zamenhof and his followers envisaged a world where Esperanto was the global second language; the with no baggage or bias.

It’s so easy that even an illiterate peasant could pick it up quickly, bridging the communication gap and ultimately breaking down hostility between all peoples.

A true international language.

The common argument against this of course is that we already have that.

It’s called English (and to a lesser extent languages like French and Spanish in the former colonies).

Esperantists are uncomfortable with this fact.

They’re uncomfortable with the reality that one of the natural byproducts of colonialism was the very thing that they’ve been trying desperately to achieve. Yes, English is a “harder” language grammatically but despite its relative difficulty, it’s still accomplished what Esperanto could not.

We no longer talk about England as being the final authority on what constitutes correct or incorrect English either – there’s American English, English, South African English for example.

Linguists now agree that there are many other varieties such as Indian English and Singaporean English as well which are an authority unto themselves.

The Internet is basically unusable without English too.

The Esperanto dream has been fulfilled naturally whether they like it or not and people in every corner of the world are under increasing pressure to learn English simply to function in the 21st century.

English has succeeded where Esperanto failed miserably.

Now, I’m actually opposed to having a global language personally. This includes English.

We’re rapidly losing languages and more than half of them will be lost forever by the end of this century.

For that reason combined with the fact that we already have an international lingua franca whether we like it or not, a constructed medium like Esperanto is absolutely unnecessary.

So now you know why I won’t learn Esperanto.

Translate This is a quick and easy web translator. Our translator can translate over 100 languages. We also offer website translation tools that can translate your entire website. Free and paid subscriptions available.


Lessening of communication barriers using different tools is one of the more positive outcomes of the globalized economy. Add to it the improvement of web technology and features and you'll definitely have virtually no boundaries when it comes to expanding your company.

Online website translation tools are one such option that has assisted millions of internet users on a daily basis. These simple to use web page translation tools are rather helpful not just for students, but also for small business experts who are looking for information on a product, web page, corporation or an enterprise.

A lot of of us are not capable of reading and writing 2 or 3 languages (unless you're a linguist) and understanding the content of a specific language can present a problem.

For instance, a business traveler coming from California trying to reserve a hotel in Italy can easily have a difficult time understanding the internet booking system that reads in the Italian language. To combat such a position, he can instantly use the online website translation programs to convert the content material into English and make his reservation.

Google has supplied the most well known translation tools inside the virtual world, even so there are many fairly new links including the thesaurus, Lingvosoft online, systranet.com, langenberg.com and several more of these. These web sites permit you to translate an individual word, phrases, or entire text on the site not simply to English but something like 80 odd languages, which include the widely spoken French, Italian, Spanish, German, Portuguese, and Hindi languages amongst quite a few others.

Translation by way of these internet web sites is absolutely a piece of cake. It is possible to either copy and paste the written text and click the translate button, or else you may perhaps just copy the URL then insert it in the specified field and it usually takes even less than a minute to get the translated variation. And the icing on the cake is the simple fact that nearly all these websites are free and do not charge you for their services.

These sites function on the revenue model and generate money by the number of clicks and amount of users to the web page. Nonetheless in case you require some business related text that really needs to be translated to a foreign language even while maintaining its privacy, you are able to often opt for secured web sites that can translate as many pages as you desire and charge extremely inexpensive rates as well.

For all those who are considering to launch a new internet website translation application, it is a must to get the essential licensing, get your DUNS number and begin with a really user friendly web site which is effortless to upload, and to promote your web page through advertising and meetings with corporations for optimum growth.

 


As you look at the statistics generated by your website's analytics provider, you have more than likely discovered that you have traffic from countries bergen county singles over 50 around the world that don't speak the same primary language as that of your website. Should you discover that close to 30 percent of your website traffic comes from foreign nations, you might want to give consideration to the added benefits that website translation has to offer your business.

Working with a website translation service suggests hiring a native bilingual speaker to translate all the material offered on your site to the target language. There are numerous reasons for undertaking this, such as business growth, providing services to international customers, and providing the bulk of your website audience with a much easier to read web site. For instance, in the event that 30 percent of your traffic is generated from Germany, Austria, and Switzerland, you might see a much higher conversion rate simply by offering a German translation of your website.

Despite the fact that machine translation is actually a possibility, it's nowhere near as accurate as employing a qualified translator to custom translate your site for you. Machine translations cannot recognize subtle uses of words and phrases that might not really be regarded as official but are nonetheless acceptable in every day language usage. Qualified translators will not just recognize these tiny subtleties, but translate them with the appropriate meaning into the target language to make certain that any material offered in your site doesn't lose its meaning because of translation.

Cost of Translation

Given that human translation is actually a much better choice for a much more professionally designed web site, determining what companies or individuals to make use of can be quite a difficult process. Before you begin taking a look at translation providers, make sure you recognize precisely what you need. If you are promoting a variety of products, then item descriptions, selling prices, and images depicting the items might need to be translated. With a thorough understanding of exactly what you will need plus a short debriefing together with your selected translator, the translator should have the ability to lay out a strategy for translating your website as well as the right way to add it into your current business plan.

The majority of experts who work independently for themselves frequently have a portfolio, so having a look through it should offer you a good idea as to the level of quality of their translations. Employing an individual by means of a translation service is generally a lot more costly compared to hiring a self-employed translator, but with a service you'll have the guarantee that the translations supplied by the service are precise and easy to understand for native speakers of your target language.

Overall, the choice to employ a website translation service really should be one you make when you feel the price of translating your business into a different language might broaden your reach and provide you with even more potential customers.

Only native translators can handle the translation jobs effectively and efficiently as they are well-versed with the culture and behavior of the targeted audience that includes their subtleties, their language and likes & dislikes. Native translators are always the best bet to woo the potential customers who plan to venture into a foreign market.

2. Use Domain (e.g., medical, IT, automotive) Specialized Translators

When hiring a translation services agency, make sure the agency has specialized translators for different fields. For example, if you are dealing in legal documents; an ideal translator should possess a degree in law or similar discipline. The same goes for medical, engineering, IT, insurance, business and other translations.

3. Effectiveness of Localization - desktop publishing and quality control

A good translation company always has a proper planning and the flawless execution for their every project. It not only allows them to streamline the process but also helps in keeping the client updated about the progress whenever he demands.

4. Continuous Updation with Advancements

In present world where technologies get upgraded everyday, keeping pace with different advancements is very important.

Canada translation service agencies have a good reputation in delivering high quality and time-bound translation work. Translation Ottawa, translation Vancouver, and translation Calgary are known as the hubs of translation and interpretation industry in Canada.

 


Software for computer aided translation or software for automatic translation have become fundamental for professional translators. Regarding translation software, it is important to distinguish two types of tools. First, automatic translation software is aimed at obtaining a complete conversion from one language to another in order to represent the general meaning of a text. These translations are not very accurate because they essentially provide a word for word translation. More costly versions of this type of software come enhanced with a specialized translation dictionary, such as the Altavista translation software for example, which makes them somewhat more reliable and effective.

However, these translation tools generally do not provide translations of acceptable professional quality. On the other hand, there is computer aided translation software, which has incorporated some topic-specific dictionaries. These are the tools that most professional translators work with. These tools do not provide direct translations but provide a support system that helps translators to work faster and more accurately.

Language translation software is increasingly becoming necessary for both professional translators and corporate businesses. Automatic translation tools are generic tools that are supposed to adapt themselves to all kind of texts, such as technical documents, newspaper articles or literary texts. Their translation models are based on statistics, which allows them to create sentences that sound good enough but that might not be accurate or even have a mistranslation. There are indeed two different main approaches regarding automated translation. Historically, these tools works within rules: the machines learn the syntax and grammar rules and apply them to the text in order to translate it. Another more recent approach is based on statistics analogy. This technique compares a great amount of texts in the source and target languages, and deduces from them some translation rules. But if the combination of language rules and statistical tools seems to be the more effective way to improve automated translation, an equilibrium between these two approaches is still difficult to find.

Computer aided translation software uses translation memories. A translation memory is a data base that contains segments of texts in the source language and equivalent translated texts in another target language. It allows to save sentences segments and to use them again later. This is the main difference between automatic translation and computer aided translation. Computer aided translation offers the advantage of saving time on repetitive texts so the translator needs to type less and can dedicate more time to research. A translation memory is very effective for technical texts because from one version of a product to the next one for example, you might find 90% of common text, which would not be the case for literary texts.

Most software programs that use translation memories are quite expensive and are only developed for Windows (Trados Workbench, DéjàVuX, SDLX, Star Transit, MultiTrans, Similis,...), but a growing number of Java applications also allows you to work on Mac OS X and Linux (OmegaT, Open Language Tools, Heartsome,...). When the translator begins to work with this tool, he starts the software which segments the source text. When an identical or similar text segment is found in the database, the software suggests the translation. The translator then has the possibility to accept it, adapt it or reject it. If he chooses this later option, by choice or because of the lack of correspondence, the translator must then translate it by himself and the data base will save the translation for the next time. Despite computer-aided tools, language translation still essentially remains a human skill.

Translators could be worried about the fact that software might finally threaten this human craft but there is no reason for this concern. Since translation language is very specific, professional translators are increasingly participating in updating those electronics tools. Software helps translators process large amounts of text more efficiently. When you select a translation company be it Montreal translation services provider or translation Winnipeg for your professional language translation projects, make sure that they select translators who use professional translation tools.

 


Technology has made a very huge progress in the 21st century. It is literally impossible to imagine life without its involvement. You have to make sure that you get the best Technical Translation Agencies so that it can serve you the best purpose. It is not at all a simple task to get the right one for you because the one that you get should be able to make the right usage of both language and knowledge. This is because if there is any wrong use of it then it would alter the entire meaning and tone of the particular article. It should be able to translate any type of content of any niche like construction, aircraft or gizmos...etc. You also need to ensure that you get error free product.

Check the certifications
The most important thing that you need to do is to check their certifications and also whether their documents are really authentic. You also need to make sure the Translation Company that you choose help you to save much of your money because it is not necessary that you need to spend a whole lot of money if you try to get the best one for you. If you are able to follow these steps then you would not have to worry at all in finding the best one for you.

Get your doubts cleared
If you want to reach more people to your website then you should try to look for the best Professional Website Translation whether it can help translate in a particular language. You can also try to get in touch with them either by calling them up or even through email. You should be able to get all your queries resolved so that it would make you feel satisfied.

It will facilitate operational Technical translation in all fields. There are just too many advantages of opting for translation software programs, the biggest one being a faster, more lucrative turnaround of various demands. However, you must stay extremely wary of the low quality programs which you will definitely come across in the market.

 


The whole world does not speak English, though this is a common misconception. In fact, Mandarin Chinese is the language spoken by a majority of the world's population, probably because of the sheer numbers that inhabit China. This is followed by Spanish with English coming in at third place. When the aim is to communicate with as many people who have access to the internet, to think that any one language is sufficient is not what will grease the wheels of commerce or throw light on the shadows of web pages and website content.

Global websites, local tongues
A 2006 survey has found that 52.4% of the target group preferred to buy products online if the information contained was in their native language. Even more surprisingly, 56.2% said that language was more important to them than price. The most astonishing part is that the target sampled belonging to highly developed nations with high per capita incomes like Germany, Japan and France among others. English does not always rule the internet seas. Realise this when you are trying to be a global hit. Website Translation should most definitely enhance your Web page response.

A picture PLUS a thousand words
We all know the old jungle saying: a picture is worth a thousand words. No doubt, layouts, graphics, fonts and pictures are essential to captivate the eye, but words are equally important. When a web page or website needs to reach a variety of target audiences belonging to different countries, cultures and languages, words you WILL require translation for effective communication. Even if the target audience knows the language of the website/ page, the degree of comfort that their native language induces is certain to be greater.

Keyboard mightier than the sword
Websites should sport copy that engages customer interest and enthuses them to journey further into the content. The power of the written word should not be underestimated. When the website or webpage expects cross country traffic (and this is increasingly a real need), translation should be of a class that is able to capture the essence of the language and engage the audience.

In businesses that are moving to different pastures, nothing says that you value your clients more than communicating in their language. The effort put in also reassures your clients that you are in the business for the long haul.

Web page & Website Translation: hit it!
Effective translation means hitting the bull's eye when you aim for your target audience. It opens up many new domestic and international markets. For example, in a multilingual country like India, no one language will suffice; neither is English adequate. In fact, even in an "English speaking" country like the USA, some billboards sport Spanish as do signs in public places: web content should follow suit. Untapped markets should be targeted to significantly increase business and revenue. Never let language be a barrier.
Haute couture or Off-the- rack?
Companies invest time, effort and money in designing and maintaining websites and web pages. It would be a big mistake if they were to dilute this investment by going in for translation plug-ins for browsers. This might open up the door to mistranslations. Not only does the website then lose its slick feel, it might offend or frustrate the browser and may actually be worse than no translation at all. Web page and website translation should be handled by professionals who can get the meaning right no less than the grammar and can translate copy so that it does not lose the shine of the original.

The God Google
PANDA is an algorithm (basically, the process for computer operations) that has been updated on Google's search results. It measures the quality of a site and displays search contents in a high to low sequence with, obviously, the high quality sites near the top of the search results. So, if a website is to be high up the ladder, then some investment in good and interesting translation of copy is necessary when people search in their native languages. If you want to be found internationally, let your translated content be the beacon that guides the searcher to your website.

Direct more traffic to your site
Professional and skilled translation is the additional padding on a website. For example, if you are a marketing company doing business internationally, your product is only as attractive as your site and translation itself will go a long way in attracting more traffic. Even if every click does not mean another buyer you improve your chances by making your presence felt. Increased traffic also means increased brand recall.

The customer/ client have always been king. This is the basic premise that every website and page design must keep in mind. If you want to stand out from the competition, want to impress clients, want to widen scope or lengthen reach, skilled translation is what will take your website or page to the top of the search results.

Take that step to reach the top.

If your company sells overseas or you are looking to enter new foreign markets, it is without doubt that at some point you will require the services of a website translator.

Website translation works with website localisation to translate and adapt your website specifically for your target country, region or area, ensuring that written and visual content fit in with the local cultural outlook.

English use on the internet declined from 51% in 2000 to 29% in 2009, making it vital that businesses looking to trade overseas translate and adapt their websites for an international audience.

In general, a good example of a website that has been localised correctly for the target market will feature browser recognition so visitors can be taken to their dedicated language area and links to the other language version by the name of the language rather than a flag - as languages are often spoken in more than one country.

Your translated website should also, ideally have a unique domain name in the language of your target market. This has become even more important since the first Internationalised Domain Names in non-Latin characters became available earlier this year.

Having hosting in your target country and link popularity with sites hosted in the target market - i.e. links back from French websites to your own site - will also improve the performance of your website in your chosen overseas market.

When considering the process of website translation and localisation you will need to pay particular attention to the colours and images used, in case they are offensive or have another meaning in your target country. For example, in Islamic countries green is used for Holy purposes and in Korea, names written in red means the person is dead.

You will also need to be aware that in different countries there are variations to the way in which date, time, currency and weights and measures are displayed.

If you want to reuse the existing templates for the UK version of your website be prepared to alter them as translating from English to some European languages increases the amount of text. Don't worry about translating passages that are irrelevant to overseas visitors and make sure that the tone and key messages are localised to your target audience.

Once you have chosen a website translator make sure that you are clear about your objectives and remain fully involved throughout the whole process. Check, re-check and proof read final copy and always query things if you are not sure.

 


With the proliferation of automatic translation services and online translators, is there really a need for professional website translation? The truth is that while such automatic services can provide help translating a single word or a short sentence, they do not translate longer passages with any accuracy. What's more, if you have your own business website and wish to ensure that your readers, regardless of their location in the world, read the message that you want deliver then you need to retain complete control over your website content.

Colloquialisms

Different countries, and even different regions within some countries, use different words and different terms to have the same meaning. Similarly, where one country may appreciate a certain design style that other's will not, some countries prefer the use of some words and sayings that people from other countries won't understand. Professional website translation helps avoid these differences.

Translation Software

Not all Internet users are aware of the software that is available to translate web pages. Certain browsers offer the feature and make it obvious while others do not. Some browsers may even automatically translate the page for you but, in other cases, it may be necessary to use third party software. Those that are not aware of translation software will not even be able to get the general idea of your website content or business message.

Consistent Website Translation

The effectiveness of translation software varies dramatically from one service to another and from one language to another. Offering a consistent service to your readers helps ensure that they enjoy the best possible experience while on the pages of your website. Your marketing message and calls to action are clearly defined and well presented to your readers in a language and context that they can understand.

The Benefits

Effective website translation enables you to offer all of your visitors the same high quality experience without forcing them to rely on software that can prove to be ineffective, inaccurate, or inconsistent. Offering all of your readers the same level of usability and accessibility means that you can enjoy a larger audience and a global marketplace for your products, services, and your website.

 


With the boom in online marketing, e-commerce has become widely popular as a medium of business. Websites like Amazon, eBay et al have become household names now and people across the world are finding online purchases a convenient and cost effective mode of buying.

Most of the customers across the world prefer to access a website that is published in their native language. Since only 25 percent of world's population belongs to English-speaking community, localization of ecommerce websites has become a necessity.

According to a recent survey, 63 percent of consumers are more likely to buy from a website that communicates in their native language.

Localization or offering content in mother language helps in building better connect with customers living in different demographics and speaking different languages.

In this scenario of increasing importance of localization in the midst of rapid globalization, the business opportunities for translation agencies are set to boom.

However, translation agencies need to be careful while capitalizing on these opportunities. It is indeed a Herculean task to provide translations that are in harmony with the terminology and culture of a place.

Here are some points that need to be considered by offering translation services to different civilizations across the globe:

Consider Cultural Preferences

Every country has its own cultural preferences - Asian people like to be greeted by their surnames but are not comfortable when greeted with first names. Similarly, there are different symbols and icons that hold spiritual, cultural, or emotional significance in a particular part of the world.

A translation agency should be well aware of all these cultural preferences while translating the content for a particular class of people.

Be Aware of Language Barriers

People living in different parts of world have their own characteristics, consciousness, and thinking. Be careful with your vocabulary as some words may sound offensive for a particular community.

Every language is unique in its display, grammar, alphabets, and syntactical rules. For instance, there is no one-to-one mapping between upper-and lowercase characters in languages like European French and German.

Similarly, in non-Latin character-based languages including Chinese, Japanese, Korean, and Vietnamese, there is no concept of lower-and uppercase letters. (Source: MSDN Library, 2007).

The translators should also be careful while translating the idioms or proverbs popular in that area as the message it conveys symbolically may be entirely different from what it literally means.

Prefer Human Translators

When it comes to translation of e-commerce websites, prefer a human translator. E-commerce works automatically. There is nobody available to help visitors understand different terms and conditions. A small error in content can result in the disinterest of a potent customer.

A human translator who is well versed with the terminology of that country is a better choice for reliable and effective translation.

Have A Look At Local Sites

When in Rome, do as the Romans do.
Take a notice of local websites and try to understand the pattern and terminology popular in that area. It will help you translate the content in a way; the natives of that place would like to read. It will also help understand the cultural and behavioral patterns of the locals.

Always opt for a renowned and reputed for your translation projects. You can consider translation Edmonton or translation Vancouver for the same.

 


If you are running a multi-national company or a business that deals with people in non-English speaking countries, then I believe you can benefit from a professional website localization service. When you deal with a diverse group of people, you will run into a language barrier. The text on your website cannot only be in the English language anymore. You must translate the text to other languages so that people in non-English speaking countries can understand what your business is providing.

If you want to sell to international customers, website localization is the key to success. Now, let me share with you 3 benefits of website localization to businesses:

1. It builds credibility. Your competitors may have already translated their websites to various languages and if you have not done so, you are the one losing out credibility. If you are an international company, website localization will show your customers that you are truly an international player. By translating your website to various foreign languages, it also shows that you respect the people in that particular country.

2. It eliminates language barrier. Website localization allows you to break language barrier and make your website readable to all people around the world. Sometimes, we tend to forget that there are still a significant group of non-English speaking PC users. If you are running an international company, you must take this into consideration.

3. It increases revenue for the business. When your potential customers do not understand what your website is about due to language barrier, you are losing lots of potential revenue. Instead of trying to save a few thousand dollars on website localization, you could be losing millions of revenue. Your potential customers will feel more comfortable with your company if the information, products and services are presented in their native language. By translating your websites to various foreign languages, you can be sure that you will gain millions of new foreign customers.

An additional benefit is that with website localization, you can bring more visitors to your website. This is because as the text on your website is translated to various languages, your website will start appearing on foreign search engine listings. This way, you can get more new visitors to your website and stand a chance to gain new customers.

Although website localization is a huge investment, it is definitely worth every cent that you pay for. Before you hire any company for the job, make sure that you do a thorough research and shortlist a few companies. Check out their expertise, experience, testimonials and price before deciding to hire one.

 


Often, it really is important to translate a document from English to a different language, or vice versa.

The English Language is identified globally as the sole international language in the world. Nonetheless, some individuals in this world are certainly not that skillful in the English language. When it comes to a language, you will find the primary aspects of writing, reading and speaking. Many men and women are fine at speaking in English.

Nonetheless, with regards to written English, their mastery of the language could be inadequate. Believe it or not, the exact same case is applicable to some native English speakers. Considering this aspect, translation of relevant written documents to other languages may be important. In the case of production businesses, which often set up their plants in Asia and Europe, translating documents might be required.

Recognized languages inside the continent of Europe, apart from the United Kingdom, are German, French and quite a few others. Some of those who reside on this part of the continent are not properly versed in written or spoken English. The exact same goes with Asian countries where English just isn't deemed as the official language. With regards to manufacturing of goods, there are lots of critical technical documents, work guidelines and so on.

If a person doesn't understand the English work instruction, he or she may well end up creating a quality difficulty for the corporation. As a result, translating the job instructions into the individual's local language for effortless understanding is critical. Other than the chance of affecting quality, the production of the worker would be reduced if he or she doesn't fully grasp the process well. The same goes with other related technical documents.

People that are utilizing the documents will need to comprehend them to perform their work without any challenges. Consequently, translating them into their local language is a good move. Other than manufacturing companies, research organizations and quite a few others are in the same boat too. These days, you are able to discover firms whose sole business is centered on translation services.

You may also run into totally free or paid online translation tools. Keep in mind that it really is not simple to convert a document from one language to another. By directly converting the words and phrases from one language to another, there might be a poor mix up of terms. Some of the meanings of words could be wrong or misleading and lead to more problems. English, in particular, has many words that differ in meaning with respect to the context.

To be able to translate a document from one particular language to another, a translator should be properly versed in the two languages. He or she may possibly even have to refer to the creator of the documents, as in the case of technical documents. In basic terms, translation requires rewriting in another language, editing and certain study and checking to be certain the translation is correct.

 


Business owners - when setting up their own businesses - typically conduct some basic levels of research beforehand. This would be primarily to establish that a demand exists in the market, for the products or services that they plan on providing. If no demand exists, establishing a business would be pointless since it would not result in too many sales, leave alone profits. This elementary, background market research remains equally necessary for those who run online businesses. It has been said before that 'Failing to plan equates to planning to fail'; no business owner would want their business to turn into a debacle.
Even when businesses become full-fledged, owners try and employ various gadgets and cameras than enable them to ascertain consumer's behavioural patterns. Retail traffic intelligence systems provide a lot of information that range from which part of the store gets frequented the most to the number of visitors who ended up making purchases. It comes as no surprise therefore, that online websites also use various software applications like web analytics to gauge website traffic and measure site statistics like free hits, unique visitors etc. In fact, sites like Hits9.com even provide services that direct free hits to their customer's websites too.
Web analytics has gained popularity on account of their utility in analysing market trends or identifying website visitors. Some of the benefits that online businesses gain by employing web analytics include:

* Monitoring: By providing details like how many visitors the site had, the length of their stay, where they came from etc., you would be able to ascertain the keywords that led visitors to your site. It would even allow you to figure out the frequency of return visits in addition to the web pages of your site that the users visited.
* Optimisation: Once you know the keywords used by the visitors, it becomes a lot easier to modify the content of your web pages to ensure that you attract the attention of your target audience.
* Strategising: Based on the behaviour patterns of your customers, you could easily come up with marketing plans and strategies that lead to repeat visits and even translate into sales.
American entertainer, Will Rogers, once said, "Outside of traffic, nothing has held this country back as much as committees". While his words may have been relevant to the times he lived in (i.e. 1879 - 1935), small and medium businesses today would view his words with a lot of scepticism. Given the boon that the internet has become for such businesses, having a strong online presence has become a mandate for any website to be successful. While traffic woes continue to hound those who travel on the streets, for those online, heavy traffic will always be welcomed with joy.

This is important because you will need to submit business plans and documents to your local managements. As different countries have different accounting and documentation practices, this is where business documentation translation plays an important role.

To translate documents well, you need a good translator. Someone who has a good knowledge of foreign languages does not necessary means that he or she is a good translator. To put it simply, to be a good translator, you need to possess the skills to make the right analysis of the meaning in the target language. On top of this, a good translator needs to understand the different dialects of the country so as to translate the documents more accurately.

If you aspire to be a good translator, these are some criteria that you need to be able to fulfil first:

1. You need to know how to read and speak different languages. This is the most basic criteria that you need to have in order to be a professional translator. If you cannot even read multiple languages, there is no way that you are able to translate a document accurately. Pick this skill by reading knowledge-providing sources like bilingual dictionaries.

2. You need to be a good language writer. Writing is the chief work of a translator. You need to possess great copywriting skill and well aware of the different styles of writing based on the type of language that you are writing for. Proper punctuation and paragraphing also increase the value and readability of your translated materials.

3. You need to be a sharp listener. While listening, you need to grasp various key notes, specific vocabulary and idioms so as to translate a speech accurately. There are important points that your client will not want you to miss it. Listen attentively and translate them accurately for your client.

The pc plus the birth of the world wide web have completely changed exactly how we live our lives as well as the way organizations perform. One particular area of business which has noticed the results of the information age is that particular area linked with the capacity to translate documents.

In advance of the availability of software packages that enable interested people to just place a chunk of textual content into a window on a personal computer display and get it translated into virtually any desired language, language translators would frequently obtain work that asked them to translate documents from one language into another one.

A number of corporations that were involved in the processing of foreign documents would hire such language translators who would charge at various rates for their particular services. Some foreign language translators might charge per word while others would charge per hour. No matter what the arrangement on payment was, the end result was that quite a few corporations which used foreign language translators found it to be a really costly endeavor. Needless to say, corporations which had to hire language translators would have clearly sacrificed a percentage of their profit margin in doing so.

The beginning of the information age, however, helped bring changes to the way in which these enterprises operate. Corporations that previously employed language translators to translate documents, now make the most of the many foreign language translation software applications which are in the marketplace. Any company might simply get in touch with a computer software firm, retail store or programmer and acquire a foreign language translation software application that will accomplish the language translation in a speedy and effective fashion.

It needs to be mentioned that some software programs can very easily be downloaded at no cost from the web. Nonetheless, a few of these free downloads might have harmful viruses that will infect your personal computer system. In addition, a number of of these totally free downloads don't always translate that particular document as effectively and as exactly as a business organization may perhaps need. At all times keep in mind that you often get exactly what you pay for and whenever a software program is totally free, one may need to contemplate how useful it genuinely is. As a result, it is recommended for virtually any serious business that is in the business of needing to translate information, to invest in a proper foreign language translation software application.

You will find some extremely professional and skilled computer programmers out there who can certainly offer top quality software programs. Obviously, as alluded to previously, you commonly get exactly what you pay for. At the end of the day, paying for a language translation software program will save your business enterprise much money in the medium to long term. Even so, if you genuinely wish to be certain that you're obtaining expert final results, you may possibly choose to opt for a qualified document translator.

 


Most certainly, when you think about your website and just how much work you and your team have put into designing it and creating the right content for your target audience, you would not want to change a thing. However, if you are looking to make your products and services appealing to Polish customers, you will have to translate from English to Polish all the content that you have there and then some. If you want to do this just right, you will need to invest in the services of a translation agency that can provide top notch translation English to Polish.

One of the most important facts that you need to know about your company's website is that this is the place where prospective customers come to find out more about the products and services that you have to offer. If they are unable to understand what you have to say about what you can provide, they will simply decide to rely on one of your competitors.

Everything must be prepared with the utmost care so that at the end of the day, your brand is the top choice of your Polish target audience. It would be recommended that you do not rely on software to translate from English to Polish as you might encounter some pretty unpleasant issues. It is a well-known fact that in every language, there are certain phrases that can be difficult to translate, even by an experienced translator.

So, leaving it up to translation software should not be up for debate. If you want to be smart about it, you will outsource all of your translation English to Polish needs to professionals that know exactly what they are doing. Your website should not just be translated in another language, but it should also be visible in the online environment and SEO optimized so that it can be easily picked up by search engines.

This means that you can't just opt for the help of a translator. Your company will require the assistance of a team that can provide the ideal translation English to Polish.

Due to globalization, more businesses are expanding into overseas markets. Some markets such as China and Thailand are non-English speaking countries. Therefore, the need for professional translation service is at the highest demand than ever. These businesses will need to translate their professional business documents such as business and marketing plans to the native language. And as a professional translator, you can definitely make money from them.

If you wish to be a translator, you need to know foreign languages well. Other than knowing various foreign languages, you still need to possess the skill to make the right analysis of the meaning of the target language. Therefore, someone who only knows many foreign languages may not be a good translator. Additionally, it will be good if you are a native speaker of the target language as you will tend to understand more about the dialect and culture of the way they speak.

If your dream is to become a professional translator, this article can help you in your quest. Let me share with you 4 criteria that you need to fulfil first before you can become a professional translator:

1. Must know how to read and speak different languages. Knowing how to read and speak different languages is a must if you want to become a translator. If you cannot read foreign languages, there is no way you will be able to translate one language to another accurately. To pick up other languages, you can start attending language classes or reading useful sources such as bilingual dictionaries.

2. Must know how to write well. In order to be a translator, you need to write well. Copywriting skill is something that you cannot afford not to have. When it comes to copywriting, there are different styles of writing based on the type of language that you are writing for. Also, do take note on the punctuation and paragraphing. Proper punctuation and paragraphing will increase the readability and value of the translated materials.

3. Be a good listener. When you are listening to what your client is saying, you need to grasp key notes and specific vocabulary in order to translate a speech accurately. With regular exercises, this skill can be developed over time.

4. Get yourself bilingual dictionaries and utilize them. A bilingual dictionary is a great resource for you to master foreign languages. Do not just leave them on your book shelf. Utilise them and take action. Take note and practise speaking. With more practice, the better you will become.

These are the 4 criteria you must have in order to become a professional translator. Do remember that a good translator is not born overnight. A translator is good because of the amount of hard work and due diligence he or she has put in.

 


Translating into any language is an onerous and multi-faceted challenge. This challenge was superbly paraphrased by Jorge Louis Borges when he said: "The original is unfaithful to the translation".

When it comes to languages like German, the whole process has to incorporate various perspectives and dimensions also.

What is of utmost significance is the challenge of keeping the original impact of the communication intact despite the endless changes, text modifications, and structure-related morphing that any document goes through. This takes up a new level of difficulty in German to English translation as the languages differ immensely in their complexity, syntax, basic flow and phrasing.

At the same time, one should remember the outcome side issues in terms of length of words and extra efforts in explaining the context. German words come with a unique phonetic aspect and they are also technically-anchored in their origins. They may be too big and too complex and at the same time if one translates them in English without also transporting the context or circumstantial meaning then the effort is only half-baked.

An English reader may not immediately grab the exact import of a certain German word. Translators, especially, experienced ones ensure that they invest more time and energy in making the reader grasp the original impact as comprehensively as possible.

Such experts also take cognizance of the expansion or contraction of text that happens when one is about to translate German to English website and their associated impact on visual elements, space, and layout. For a legal or technical translation, the ad verbatim manner of translation may not leave much scope for playing around.

Every type of translation including German to English translation of websites and other documents face the following 3 challenges,
Language structure
Idioms and Expressions and
Cultural differences

Use of compound nouns, word count, sentence length, and syntax deployed would affect the destination translation in many ways. It is not necessary, peculiarly in German to English translations that word count would vary in direct correlation to overall text length as both the languages have different structures.

Professional translation service providers pay attention to salient features, prime connotations, linguistic challenges, intended effects, audience genre, and overall context of the translation effort.

The translation should also consider the type of Website being translated from German to English or vice-versa. The websites could be Promotional websites, Informational websites or Commercial websites (like e-Commerce) etc. The technical challenges in the backend would also need to be considered before translating.

There are many players that offer the languages as part of their services but one needs to consider the format in question, the complexity of the message and the design aspects of the communication before picking a certain translator. Such level of detailing is crucial because only someone who can capture the nuances of the source language, target language and the demands of coherency and barriers in reconstruction can allow adequate treatment of the subject.

What matters here are both quantitative and qualitative factors where understanding, formulation & interpretation with respect to inferences and strategic goals have to be dovetailed well. This may also need expertise on semiotic communication or exegetic translation or other complex aspects that a player with enough portfolio experience and a good grip on both the languages can effectively deliver.

In order to become a good professional translator, it is not enough to just know a foreign language. A lot of people believe that translation is just taking text and substituting them into other languages. However, this is not usually the case. A professional translator needs to have a deep understanding in native languages, as well as cultural differences. Translation requires skill and experience in order to make the right analysis of the meaning in the target language.

As the world is getting more globalize, the demand for translation services is also getting hotter. A translator must have the knowledge and skill to translate documents that the target language readers can relate to. So what are some of the criteria that a good translator must fulfil?

1. Able to read different languages. To be able to translate properly, the translator must be able to read text in different languages. He or she must be able to understand both source and target communication in order to translate the text accurately.

2. Able to write well in both source and target languages. A good translator must know the different styles of writing and morals when editing text from one language to another. He or she needs to use punctuation at the right time to make the text readable.

3. Able to use bilingual dictionaries well. Using bilingual dictionaries requires very technical proficiency and it is something any good text converter needs to master. Sometimes, although two words are the same, they have different meanings in different circumstances. Therefore, a translator must understand the exact meaning of a word in a specific situation.

4. Able to listen well. A translator must have a good listening ear so that he or she can grasp expressions, specific words and their uses. By listening attentively, the translator will understand the scope of the work better and know how to ask the right questions.

5. Ask the right questions. In the translation business, accuracy is very important. Therefore, if there is anything that translators do not understand, they must know how to ask the right questions to clear their existing doubt.

To become a good translator, it is not something that can happen overnight. A lot of training, learning, and experience are needed to turn someone into a good translator. When engaging translators for your work, be sure to give them a detailed briefing on the work to be done. This will help minimize any misunderstanding and make the process more efficient.

However, the tools, professionalism, and knowledge expected from a professional translation agency has revolutionized as time passed by. Nowadays, professional translators do not translate anything physical but information. They will need computers to do their job and translate all the necessary business documents to the right languages for companies.

Other than converting one language to another, the work of a professional translator does not stop here. Their work need to be original, presented professionally and competitive in price. In order to survive in the competitive translation business, these translation agencies need to make sure that their translators are professional. Below are 5 of the professional traits that a translator should have:

1. Follow a strict code of ethics. In the translation industry, translators often come across confidential documents such as new marketing plan or new business ideas. A translator with integrity will not make use of this information to harm his or her clients. To thrive in the translation business, honesty and trust are very important. Therefore, a good translator will be clever enough to know not to destroy the trust that the client has in him or her.

2. Understand the topic to be translated. Before a translator translates anything, he or she needs to conduct some research of the topic or field to be translated.

3. Be proficient in languages. This is the most basic professional trait that a translator must have, so that he or she will be able to convey the message correctly.

4. Always willing to learn new things. The nature of the work will require a translator to deal with all sorts of topics and industries. Therefore, it is important for him or her to always learn and adapt to this fast moving technological world.

5. Make sure that clients understand all the details before signing any agreement. Details like cost of translation, delivery dateline and payment conditions are things that a client must know beforehand. Be responsible to let them understand all these details before signing any agreement.

Be professional in the translation business to continue thriving in this profitable service industry.

 


There are many benefits in hiring a Polish translator either for your business, school, leisure or social group and the results could be fascinating. The Polish community in the United Kingdom is forever growing so the need for Polish translators is ever increasing.

With many UK businesses employing hard working Polish people, some small business are flourishing while others are sinking in a time of economic crisis. Hiring a Polish translator can prove essential for integrating Polish people into your business, society or community. With an estimated 800,000 registered Polish workers in Britain alone, a Polish translator can assist those who speak little English to communicate with those who speak little, if any Polish.

Tackling the language barrier that faces non-English speaking Polish people and non-Polish speaking English people can be difficult. But this is where a Polish translator can help. A professional Polish translator can provide assistance where it is needed for example in the workplace, school or an airport. Having clear communication plays an essential part in minimising problems and aiding integration and understanding.

Not only can using a Polish translator improve business prospects with the Polish economy, but it can also help with building relationships and create an understanding within a multi-cultural working environment. A Polish translator is available for one-off translation purposes but can also provide Polish tuition classes if you so wish.

Polish tuition classes can be taught on a one-to-one basis or in group sessions. This can improve relationships and understanding between colleagues which could be highly beneficial for your company. A Polish translator can also help with documentation translation or face-to-face interpreting which can help get to the bottom of things quickly and efficiently.

Some Polish translator services offer 24 hour interpreting assistance and are available around the clock. More and more businesses these days are hiring Polish employees and the Polish language is one of the most widely spoken languages in Central Europe with around 50 million Polish speakers worldwide.

Using a Polish translator could help you realise the full international potential of your company by helping you to communicate with different business industries. To get the best out of a Polish translator, ensure that you hire a reputable individual or use a Polish translator from a reputable company.

 


A new debate is unfolding these days amidst geologists, marine scientists, and curious people.

A continent adjoining New Zealand may soon add itself to the good old list of seven continents we have grown up remembering so far. It would be fascinating in the context of global contours as well as from the perspective of the evolution of land mass and mountain-ranges. But what it won't affect too much is this - the business atlas.

The world has already turned from seven continents to one - the global village - with fast-dissolving business boundaries. Geography is no more a determinant of a company's success or failure. But interestingly and ironically, the languages inside borders do affect the fate of a business to a vast extent. That is where the role of translation comes into picture - whether it is a translation from Dutch to English or any language to any other language.

So a brand may catapult its anchors towards far-off lands without any worry today, thanks to the ever-expanding impact of technology, new geopolitical currents, and customers' increasing taste palate. But while a brand may set foot on new sands without any worry of entry, things are not so sure when it comes to the exit part.

Language is still a pivotal ingredient in approaching and engaging customers across new shores. A Dutch brand can go international but not until it can translate Dutch to English across the entire gamut of its communication and content pillars. Whether it is software localization, website translation, automatic app updates, branding material, advertisements, official correspondence or even grievance-redressal - the Dutch brand would have to translate to English, and beyond the superficial layer. The translation exercise has to be continuous, consistent, real-time, deep, empathetic, and really nuanced if the brand wants to make an actual connection with people beyond the countries that speak Dutch.
Similarly, for someone who is well-entrenched as a global brand, but wants to penetrate European markets in a much deeper way than before, there would be a compelling need to undertake translation touching the entire array of content that speaks to the new audience. For a brand, no matter how successful in the UK for instance, there would be not much attraction in an alien market like Spain, if it does not translate English to Spanish adequately to connect to and engage with the people in Spain.

It will be a very expensive area of neglect if any seemingly tiny detail is left out from the radar of translation. A Spanish speaking user would not accommodate a FAQ or app alert in English, especially as other brands are ready and well-equipped to cater to this user in the language s/he understands and prefers.

Poorly-executed or shallow translation would find no place in making a real impact and connection with people from a new place. Translation loss, leaks, mistakes and syntactic alignment are factors that may seem not-too-strategic, but when handled sloppily, they can inflict irreparable harm on a brand's image.

For a brand, that aspires to touch new segments and stretch its lifecycle as well as adoption-footprint; translation takes on the attire of quite a significant tool that can't be done at the last minute. The entire process and perimeter of one's content and marketing has to be redone with the eyes and ears of the new segment and hence, the new language in question. What works for software may not work for an app, if the proxy is good for a passive website - it may work in an adverse way for a dynamic one. What works for the Netherlands - may completely bounce off in Barcelona; and so on.
Zealandia or no Zealandia, do not jump onto new continents without studying the topography well and without that gear called translation.

The world is one but language holds the keys for navigation in business.

 


If your business has ambitions of making an impact outside the domestic market, you'll naturally want to ensure that you present an image of your company to these markets that is as professional and as capable as possible. It goes without saying, of course, that you will require language translation services if you are entering a foreign market, and the wide range of companies that offer such services can do everything from translating business documents to doing the same job on your entire website.

Now, if you are on the lookout for firms that offer language translation services, you might be tempted to accept the possibility of your translation being performed by a machine rather than a human being. After all, you certainly won't have to worry about paying them a wage, right?

Actually, this isn't really the best attitude that your business can have to language translation. That's because by attempting to cut corners in such an imperative area, you'll almost certainly end up with poorly translated copy that may even offend your target cultures due to the lack of a human touch. What better idea, then, than to consult a language translation company that uses the very best linguists?

What is the best way of uncovering these providers of language translation services?

Well, definitely not using the phone book. This is a notoriously slow and cumbersome method of trying to locate any reputable company, let alone a language translation services company.

Instead, try turning to the Internet, and typing something like 'language translation services' into a good search engine like Yahoo or Bing. A nice, long list of appropriate providers should emerge on your screen in a flash. But while it's nice to have so much apparent choice, it does leave you with the difficulty of choosing amongst it.

What should you expect from the best quality companies selling language translation services?

Above all, you should make sure that the company that your business chooses uses linguists who have been thoroughly checked and tested. It should also offer a wide range of individually tailored language translation services for your company's particular sector and target markets.

 


California and most of the country has communities where a language other than English is very prominent. In these communities California imposes an additional burden on certain landlords who speak a foreign language. The same is true if the landlord employees leasing agents or employees that are bilingual and negotiation or deal in a foreign language. The landlords covered are those landlords that who negotiate with a residential tenant primarily in Spanish, Chinese, Taglog, Vietnamese or Korean.

The landlord is required to deliver to the tenant prior to execution of a lease, sublease, rental contract or agreement, or the term of tenancy agreement or contract an un-executed foreign language translation of the contract or agreement. Meaning the landlord has to give the prospective tenant a translated unsigned copy of the agreement in the language in which the negotiations took place, before the English language lease agreement is signed.

These requirement apply to leases where the lease is for more than one month. This is true for apartments, houses, and mobile homes. It applies to residential lease agreements only. These statutes do not apply to commercial property. An exception applies whent he tenant brings his or her own interpreter and the interpreter is at least 18 years of age. If happens to be a 14 child for example the statute still applies. If the tenant brings his or her own interpreter, the entire negotiations can be conducted in a language other than English and the lease agreement can then be in English, presumably because the interpreter would be able to translate.

The requirement is imposed on any landlord where the landlord is engaged in a trade or business who negotiate with residential tenants. The statutes do not specify what is meant by that, but it would likely mean someone that derives a substantial amount of income, such as when a landlord owns a rental property.

The parts of the contract that do not require translation are those parts that generally do not have a non-English translation such as names, titles of individuals, addresses, numerals, and dollar amounts. If there is dispute the English version determines rights and duties, but if the translated version differs from the English version then no contract exists because there was no agreement.

If the translation of the agreement is not provided, then the tenant has the right to rescind the agreement.

California statutes specify which languages must be translated, but it would be advisable to follow the rule for other languages as well to avoid rescission or other potential problems.

These statutes initially specified that it applied when the negotiations where conducted in Spanish and were late amended to include the other groups. It is likely that the statues will be amended again to cover other groups, so it is advisable to keep current on these changing laws to avoid rescission.

In today's corporate world, there are no boundaries when it comes to business communication. Telecommunication has changed the face of business forever. Communication is an extremely important component of successful companies, and if not done properly, can cause severe problems for your business. There are roughly 6500 languages in the world, and it is impossible to learn and interpret all of them. When dealing with overseas clients, you'll need to hire specialized services of a translator so that there is no miscommunication of any kind. Translation skills require accuracy and clarity, which are the most important factors in translation. Hiring these services you ensure that your company is meeting global standards and can deal with overseas clients.

A full-fledged corporate translation agency must provide the following services:

1.Software Localization

Dealing with overseas clients requires a great amount of accuracy. Clarity must not be compromised at any cost. Localization of software doesn't only involve translation of the user interface, but must be adapted completely into the language of the country you want to target. It is a very complex process. The main benefit of software localization is reaching target audiences in different countries and creating customers overseas to give the company an international reputation and increases sales. A product that has gone through proper localization gives the user a feeling that the software is designed for him/her. It gives them a sense of reliability and comfort to when using the product. This also results in fewer customer support calls and increases customer satisfaction. Software localization also takes into account the cultural aspects of the target country to allow for an immersive experience for the customers.

The responsibility of a medical interpreter is to communicate among medical personnel or the families of the patient. A medical interpreter who can speak multiple languages must be aware of the proper terminology for medicines, medical procedures, the medical examination process, etc. Hiring untrained interpreters can cause serious problems. Accuracy and clarity in medical interpretation is of the utmost importance, as the slightest error can cause big issues.

At this point, you're going to need the services of a patent translator. Patent translation should be assigned to those who fit the client's requirements with respect to expertise, skills, and talent. Patent documents are incredibly important and are difficult to understand -- an ideal patent translation service must treat each document with extreme care.

 


If you want to make your publisher files more secure and much easier to use across various platforms, then the best thing that you can do is to translate Publisher to PDF files. Since Microsoft Publisher is perhaps one of the simplest applications to use, it can also be derived that the files that you get from it are not as secured as those that you will get from more complicated programs. In default setting, you would get a PUB file when you run the Publisher program but it is highly advisable that you use the appropriate tools that will allow you to make these files more secure. Here are two ways through which you can perform this task, both of which will allow you to turn PUB files into more secured PDF files.

One of the simplest things that you can do to translate Publisher to PDF files is to use a website called Zamzar. You will be able to access this site using virtually any web browser that you prefer. All you would have to do is to visit the site by typing the appropriate URL in the address box of your browser. As long as you have a decent internet connection, you should be able to navigate to necessary page without encountering any problem.

Zamzar is a translation browser that would require you to upload a copy of the PUB file to the site's browser for the translation will be carried out. Worry not for all the files that you will upload are bound to remain safe and are meant only to be accessed by your account. After choosing "PDF" from the appropriate dropdown menu, you would then have to enter your e-mail address for it is where the translated file will be sent. After a few minutes, you may then open you e-mail and retrieve the translated document from there.

Another website that you may use for this task is called PDF Online. Like Zamzar, this website will allow you to translate PUB files to PDF for free. This site may also be accessed via any type of web browser and operating system, so you would not need to invest on highly specialized tools to be able to use this service. You would be able to perform the appropriate translation job without spending any amount that you do not necessarily need to.

If you were to use PDF Online to translate Publisher to PDF, you would also have to upload a copy of the original PUB file to the website's main server. After double clicking the icon for the file, you would have to specify the file name that would be used for your PDF file in the output field. This website will also require you to give your e-mail information because, like Zamzar, it will send the translated PDF file there. After you click the Convert button, all you would have to do is to wait for a few minutes before checking your mail for the translated document.

If you are expanding your business operations overseas to non-English speaking countries, you definitely need a professional translator. The professional translator will translate all your business documents such as business proposals, whitepaper, contracts, user manuals and website content to the native language.

Translation is not an easy job. It is more than replacing one word to another target word of a foreign language. Today, you can find many free translation software on the Internet. But these software aren't reliable at all. For accurate translation, the translator must understand the culture and dialect of the target country.

Finding a capable translator is very important because bad translation can result in poor communication. This will directly affect your brand and business. In this article, let me share with you a few tips to hire a good translator.

1. Look for accredited translators. Accredited translators are more reliable as they will follow a set of standard quality and accuracy. Usually they will follow a set of procedure for specific language to ensure accurate translation.

2. Ask for samples from the shortlisted translators. Before you hire anyone, you should look at their work to ensure their capabilities and qualities. They should have ample experience and portfolio for you to browse through.

3. Get a native translator. Native translators are more experienced to translate your business documents to their native language. You should find translators that live or work in the target country for at least 3 to 5 years. This will ensure that they fully understand the culture of the country and produce accurate translation.

4. Ask for a second opinion from native speaker. Once the work has been done, get a native speaker to read the translated text to give you a knowledgeable opinion about the work. It is also important that the native speaker is familiar with the source language so that he or she can detect small differences in meaning.

5. Choose someone who has experience. If the translator does not have any legal experience, do not ask him or her to translate your legal documents. Before you assign any project to a translator, do consider his or her specialization.

Choosing the right translator for your company is extremely important. Competition in the business world is getting tougher each day and in order to have an edge over your competitors, you need a capable translator to convey the message very clearly and reach the target audience effectively. You cannot afford to make mistake when it comes to business translation.

Make sure that you do a run through of the document that you are about to translate and find out if there are any idiomatic expressions in the body of the text. When you translate word documents, you should keep in mind that the translation will be done in a word-to-word basis. For this reason, there is a possibility that you translation tool will not be able to stick to the original meaning of the text, especially if it is filled with idiomatic expressions and slang terms. To maintain the appropriate meaning for the translated text, it is highly advised that you translate idioms yourself before running the document for translation.

The internet is the best place to gather such information, but it is a challenge if English is not you first language. Here is where Christian translation service providers come in and safe the day. Christianity is a widespread religion and it demands a reputed firm to beat dialect challenges with finest translation tools.

Due to globalization, more businesses are moving their operations to other countries. Naturally, it makes sense to translate all business documents and website to the native language if you are expanding into a non-English speaking country. Moreover, when you attend business conferences overseas, you will also need to hire a professional translator. With a translator around, you can then communicate effectively with the people over there. With so many translators in the market, how can you ensure that you find the right one?

When you are looking for a translator, there are few things that you should take note. The first thing is to get a list of candidates so that you can select the right one for your business. Just go online and do a search on translator or translation agency in Google and you should be able to shortlist a few. Now as you have a list of candidates, let me share with you some tips to hire the right translator:

First of all, you need to choose someone who grew up speaking the language you need. This is very important because some countries have their own dialects. You need a native speaker who speaks it as first language to ensure the accuracy of communication. However, in any case that you want to hire a non-native translator, it is fine too. But you need to make sure that the non-native speaker has at least lived in the country for a minimum of ten years.

Next you need to get someone that has at least 3 years of experience as a professional translator. I will strongly advise you to get a translator from a reputable translation agency. Those translation agencies should have a pool of translators and you can be sure that they have the experience that you are looking for. A strong translation agency will have a system to regulate the quality of the translation work. Remember to look at the clientele and credential of a translation agency before deciding on one. Do take your time to screen through every agency and choose the best one for the job.

Last but not least, you need to check the privacy policy of the translation agency. All translation agencies should have their own privacy policy. So if you are hiring a translator from an agency, you should not be worrying too much. However, if you intend to hire a freelance translator, make sure that you trust the person. This is because a freelance translator is not bounded by an agency and if he or she violates the privacy agreement, you have no one to hold accountable for. So my advice to you is to hire a translator from an agency. At least if there is any problem, you can drop by their office and resolve the problem.

 


There are some common mistakes that general people make regarding aspects of translation and interpretation at the professional level. No doubt, these two specialized professional domains handle high-level responsibilities at the international level. There is a need for allaying the confusions that emerge from these two words. Many people take interpreter as translator and vice versa. The following section will try to clear the confusions by pointing out specific work areas of these two different professionals.
From outside, the working worlds of both interpreter and translator may look similar. Since, majority of us are not accustomed with these professions in our daily life, it is quite natural to make this mistake. However, to speak plainly, it should be notified that while the translator is associated with pen and paper or the writing jobs, the interpreter lends his verbal service. There is a major difference between their job areas and execution style of their executed tasks.
Translator:
A professional and qualified translator has not only the caliber to write accurately but also with élan. Words, expressions, rhetoric and other linguistic decorations should come through his/her quite spontaneously. Most importantly, a translator should manage the writing in multiple languages with equal proficiency. He/she enjoys flexible work periods, dictionary, books, online help and other vital resources. A translator enjoys relatively lesser pressure than that of an interpreter.
Interpreter:
A professional interpreter carries a load of pressures, when compared with a translator. He is efficient enough to translate spoken words in different languages and pass them towards different directions verbally. Here it should be kept in mind that this language expert does not carry any reference materials. Irrespective of this limitation he is bound to carry on his verbal interpretation work instantly whenever any person speaks a word on the spot.
An interpreter needs to execute some challenging tasks as well. He is a virtual human bridge who diligently provides a strong platform to carry on a complicated discussion between several people. He is not merely a passive participant in the discussion. On the other hand his caliber influences the success rate of the meeting outcome. If the discussion between participating heavyweights turns ugly, resulting in heated exchanges of verbal words, he needs to keep his cool and control his emotion and showcase his rare talent, i.e. is showcasing his proficiency in top-grade diplomacy. No wonder, such verbal linguistic professionals enjoy great demand in the international organizations.
Work areas of an Interpreter
Work area of a professional interpreter is mainly divided into two sections. They are simultaneous interpreting and consecutive interpreting.
Simultaneous interpreting is a challenging task. It is associated with verbally translating the spoken words in 'real time'. International organizational/diplomatic seminars and meetings employ interpreters with proficiency in simultaneous interpretation. These professionals need to immediately translate the spoken words in other language as soon as they come out from the mouth of the speaker.
Consecutive interpreting is associated with court proceedings or face-to-face tete-a-tete between two individuals or diplomats. Individual speaker speaks few words and sentences and takes a small break so that the interpreter can translate them easily and pass on to the second diplomat or individual present at the meeting.
Interpreting is a challenging yet rewarding task that gives opportunity to interact with global leaders from different sectors.

 


For someone based in a German market exploring new European, Asian or American frontiers, translation becomes an important part of the new strategy. Same is true for someone who is entering the German markets with new marketing plans. Whether it is expansion, segment penetration, product extension or brand equity spread; the importance of translation in this process cannot be ignored.

At some point, either at the onset of the new market strategy or somewhere soon in the main process, a marketer would have to confront language differences that will hamper the marketing plans in their own ways.

It is certainly not as simple or as fast as what other languages entail. The reasons are not hard to decipher.

German as a language comes with its own unique elements. Like:
1. The level of complexity.
2. The structural layers and construction issues.
3. Vocabulary breadth and depth that it encompasses.
4. Colloquial developments that affect the slangs and cultural aspects.
5. Contextual issues, given different backgrounds, folklore, and anecdotes that some phrases have been carrying for so long.
6. The general length of words.
7. Their effect on visual strategy and publishing decisions.
8. Specific words, phrases and their precise meanings that can be diluted or worse, distorted during the translation process.
9. Geographical differences affecting communication and culture.

For top translation companies, however, these factors are not so intimidating. The reason is not that they don't care about such issues, but just the opposite.

These LSPs (Language Service Providers) make room for all these above factors and many more possible barriers much ahead in the translation process. Their translators have a good grip not just on the linguistic parts but also the sub-text and interpretation issues that the language demands at various points.
It is highly useful to opt for International LSPs here as they have the geographic as well as a linguistic footprint to deliver the language project competently when it comes to translating from German to English (or otherwise).

Their breadth and scope of work assure that both the source language as well as the target language is given the right treatment. There is ample caution taken to avoid any connotation goof-ups or any phrase-related miscommunication. Extra effort, if needed, is also taken to insert appropriate clarifications or new elements in the message to make certain that the right essence is conveyed without any translation leakage or misconstructions.

Hence it is always beneficial to opt for LSPs who come with enough traction and experience in such projects and who can also lend certification or credibility weight wherever required. Such a level of expertise and gravity cannot be expected from average and piecemeal players in the market.

Top translation companies ensure that German to English translations have the right impact and in the right context. They also take extra care of the intended audience and the ultimate audience response that a given communication aims to draw out. That kind of long-term and in-depth focus to the translation task makes them strong enough to sort out the peculiar barriers that German and English languages often can present to a translator.

Whether you translate from German to English or vice versa, translation is all about one simple aim to be achieved at the end of the day: message and its clarity.

 


Any time a person would like to translate a document there are lots of unique aspects that they will have to be aware of well before they can completely translate a document. As an example simply knowing a language does not necessarily mean that they can effectively translate something as a consequence of the simple fact that it needs to be grammatically correct also. In the event that a person translates something word for word it would not make much sense to those men and women who are trying to read through the document.

All over the world there are numerous unique kinds of documents which have been translated from one particular language to another. The one single book that continues to be translated into the most languages is the Bible. There are many distinct kinds of books and even documents that have been translated from one particular language to another but on many occasions these kinds of translations come from much more well known works, including the latest best selling book to more critical documents such as scientific research. No matter what the book or document might be, it will be important that it is translated accurately.

With just about any language there's much more to it then just knowing the way to say a couple of words or even having a small portable translator by an individual's side. Just like in the English language, in addition to a lot of other languages, there are actually certain guidelines for speaking that language that an individual will need to ensure that they understand completely prior to taking the time to translate something.

Most of the time when an individual translates something it's due to the fact that they have that language as their first language or perhaps their second language. Most men and women go to college or a different kind of school to ensure that they're fully conscious of all the language rules to speaking that specific language. When an individual needs to translate a document, he will need to know the way to write that language. They'll really need to understand the particular symbols and even the positions of the words.

Translating a document is often a challenging thing to do because with time languages have changed and what was once standard back in a completely different generation or age might not be seen in that particular language at this time. As an illustration, think about the many slang words and terms that routinely show up in the English language.

So on a lot of occasions a person might possibly not have the ability to translate everything correctly but utilizing the subtext that is close to a word or a symbol will help that translator to fully understand the exact meaning of a sentence or word. Translating is usually not 100% correct but if it is accomplished thoroughly and accurately it is going to be as close to the first text as is possible.

 


How do you get a translation certified? Does the translator have to be certified to obtain a certified translation? These questions and others can create problems for us in our search to get translation services. This is an attempt to provide some basic information that will help individuals in making an informed choice in selecting the best translation service for their situation.

Many times documents that are translated are to be used in a court or other legal process. Documents normally falling into this category include birth certificates, immigration papers, university degrees and possibly divorce decrees (not an all-inclusive list). When this is the situation, the translation needs to be certified. It is important for you to check the laws in the country the document is to be used in so you will know whether it needs to be certified. The certification process will vary from one country to another. Any translation service you deal with will be able to tell you if they can provide a certified translation and whether or not it is required for your situation.

A certified translation contains a statement of translation accuracy written by a qualified translator who actually becomes the certifier. Translation service as a business is not regulated in the United States. It does not require a license. Practical knowledge of the languages is sufficient but this does not guarantee the translation would be acceptable in other countries.

In the United States, a certified translation is provided by the following procedures:

Translation from the original (source) language into the translated (target) language.
Translation of an original document. Content is the most important element. Style and format are not as important.

A statement of certification in the target language. The translator or a representative of the translation agency must sign this statement. This statement must be signed and notarized in the presence of a Notary Public.

A certified translation is provided in this manner and the translator does not have to be certified.
The Notary Public is not attesting to the accuracy of the translation. It only is proof that the person who presented the document to the Notary is the one who signed it.

In other countries, the process is different. Spain and Germany have a procedure whereby the translator can register as a "sworn translator". A person registered in this process becomes a professional translator. Any certified translation produced by them is an official document in its own right. The translator would only have to sign and seal the document and include their official number as a sworn translator.

The process, even though it varies from one country to another, is not difficult to understand. The customer needs to do his/her homework to know what documents need to be certified for a particular situation and then get the appropriate translation service to provide the proper documentation.

Hiring a translator can be a very simple process. There are just a few things you will want to keep in mind when you are searching for a translator in Edinburgh that can meet the needs of your business, or your personal needs. You may need a translator for many different reasons, so it's important to find the one with the personality and the knowledge that will work best for you. There are three important things to consider when choosing a translator for your needs.

The first is the quality of the translator. This is a very important consideration when making your choice. Handbooks and parameters have been set in the translation business to ensure that certain quality requirements are met properly. You will want to find a translator in Edinburgh that works to adhere to these standards. You may also want to find a translator that monitors your satisfaction after the translation is complete. This will help to make sure that you are one hundred percent satisfied with the product, and also open up communication to use the services in the future.

The second consideration is one that is always an issue when dealing with business. The question to ask is if the translation is affordable. Does it fit within the budget you have made while also providing the quality of service that you want for your communications? There are different steps and software involved in the translation process that can allow your translator to save you money and get you the best product for your dollar.

Confidentiality is also a very important issue when working with a translator. Many times you are dealing with very sensitive documents that need to stay as private as possible. Communications between an attorney and his client or a doctor and his patient must always be kept private. But it can often be necessary to enlist the services of a translator, and this brings a third party into the equation. Be sure to hire a translator in Edinburgh who is professional, and who adheres to the industry's requirements for confidentiality. You may often be dealing with sensitive documents and information that needs translating, and you will want someone you can trust to be involved in the process.

While the cost of translation is important and must be considered, it may not be the only thing you are concerned about when choosing a translator in Edinburgh. Before you start the process of choosing a translator, take the time to sit down and make a list of the things that are important to your work. Then make the effort to find a translator who meets as many of those requirements as possible.

 


At present, there are actually two methods being used if you wish to translate documents. One method is buy using document translation software programs. This is by far probably the most frequent technique, since it is cheap and reasonably efficient. The second method is with a professional translation provider. It is much less common because of the cost, but it offers many more benefits compared to the former. Listed here are a number of the reasons that making use of a service to translate documents is considerably more beneficial.

The first benefit is a lot more confidentiality. That is notably a fact compared to some internet translation programs. When you're working with extremely confidential information, you unquestionably do not want to risk having other individuals hack into the online application and looking at your information. Whereas if you hire a professional to complete it for you, not only are you going to confine that information to just one individual, but a confidentiality agreement can also be established.

Another bonus is far more accuracy and reliability. There are actually two aspects to this. The first one has to do with the literal translation. This occurs simply because unique languages have completely different sentence structures and totally different vocabularies. Many won't even have a corresponding word for extremely technical words. That's why in the event you use a software application, most of the time it will not make the final results 100% understandable. Which means, it sometimes gets jumbled and is not going to make complete sense. Some human involvement will nonetheless be required.

The other facet has to do with the actual meaning. In short, the particular subtleties. It's not enough to say something effectively, but it is in addition critical to say the words utilizing appropriate context. A software program has to choose between different comparable words, but can't really establish which one conveys your intended meaning. Again, some human intervention will certainly still be needed.

The third advantage is a result of the ones above: time. With much more accuracy and precise meaning, a lot of time can be saved. Because there's little requirement for corrections and other intervention, the job is completed considerably faster. Aside from this, a professional translator is trained to be efficient and is going to be ready to satisfy set deadlines.

As a result of all that, obtaining a specialist to translate documents is actually a very sensible choice. Despite the reports of some people regarding the price, it can be argued that the increased cost is worthwhile. A professional can save you a lot of time and reduce potential problems with flawed translations. You can quickly talk to them as well when any kind of clarifications are needed - something that is not always possible with software. Just make sure to get a provider having a lengthy track record and a number of translators for the language you need to be assured of high quality.

 


Translating into Japanese is no easy matter given the complexities of the Japanese language and script. If you need to translate sensitive materials into Japanese, it's important to select qualified professional Japanese translators.

The quality of Japanese translations is critical when the text is for business, legal, scientific or technical purposes. In an effort to save money, some people and companies assign their translation work to bilingual amateur translators and end up with documents of doubtful quality. This is an acceptable practice to translate informal communications. But If you expect clear and effective communications with your Japanese clients, friends or employees, look for a qualified translator.

What makes a good Japanese translator?

Not only must a top quality Japanese-English translator be proficient in the two languages, he or she must also have special training in linguistics and expertise in a given field that would have its own special vocabulary.

1. They must be native Japanese speakers

Since Japanese culture is so distinctive in the world, it is absolutely necessary to have a native Japanese speaker do any translation into Japanese. There are actually two forms of Japanese considered standard: hyōjungo, or standard Japanese, and kyōtsūgo, colloquial Japanese that is spoken by the people in casual situations. The Japanese government has taken steps to modernize Japanese so that there is less distinction between the two; nevertheless, your professional Japanese translator must have an ingrained sense as to the appropriate Japanese expression to be used in any given situation. Any misappropriation of formality is particularly offensive in Japanese.

2. Excellent writers and linguists

Even for a native speaker, a special aptitude for language is required of the professional translator, and he or she must demonstrate a facility for capturing the entire meaning and tone of the source language and reformulating it into the target language. Artistry and precision are needed, as well as specialized training in linguistics.

3. The details

Professional translators are dedicated to delivering quality translations with the utmost attention to detail. Any translation can convey "sort of" the message and intent, even one produced electronically. When your accuracy and presentation really matter, make sure that your translator pays careful attention to every detail of grammar, diction, usage, style and format so the end product seems to have been originally written in Japanese.

4. Years of training and experience

When dealing with demanding translations, look for Japanese translators that have at least formal translation studies and a couple of years of professional experience. Translation of marketing or media material also requires special training in order to transmit the most effective message with an idiomatic vocabulary. Whatever the nature of the translation job that you need, selecting the right translator will make a huge difference in the quality of the translated text.

5. Experience in the Subject Matter

Translations often require that the translator is highly proficient in specific fields of knowledge: for instance, software engineering or legal contracts. Make sure that the linguist that you are using is well versed in the terminology and style of the field.

In short, if you or your business relies on accurate communications use a qualified translator.

Translation Services - 1. These are also computer-assisted translation, except that the software employed is highly efficient and proficient in translating a particular language. 2.

They provide for continuous improvements in translation speed and quality along with rapid development of new languages for high volume translation deployments.

2009 is the year of recession but China does not seem to be affected at all. The market in China is so big that local businesses in China are self-sustaining. Today, many companies want to enter the China market. If you are one of them, you definitely need to translate your business documents from English to Chinese.

When it comes to translation, many people don't feel there is a need to pay for it. There are so many free translation programs online that one can use to translate text. So why pay the money? This is true for anything other than business translation. If you want accuracy, you definitely need to hire a professional translator to assist you.

English to Chinese translation is not easy. The Chinese language has all sorts of strokes and combination and if you are not well-verse in it, you cannot translate accurately. Also, there are 2 types of Chinese characters: Ancient and modern characters. Some countries are still using the ancient characters and this is something you must take note.

With the internet, you are not short of choices when you are looking for a Chinese translator. So what makes a good Chinese translator? In this article, let me share with you 4 tips to hire a professional Chinese translator:

1. Look for native speaker. Native speakers can produce more accurate translation as Chinese is their mother tongue. When you are translating English to other languages, you must understand that the grammar and writing are very different. An experience native speaker will know the best way to write and communicate clearly with the people.

2. The translator must have a deep understanding of the target and source language. Knowing Chinese is not enough. The translator must be proficient in the English language too.

3. Choose a translator who has experience in your industry. The translator must be specialized in the field of the translation work. For example, if you want to translate your legal documents, you must hire a translator who is well-verse in the legal industry. This is to ensure quality and accuracy.

4. The translator must be focus and time-oriented. Time is money when it comes to business. You must find someone who is focus and can keep to deadlines. This will ensure your operations can flow smoothly and start making an impact in China.

Take your time to look for the right translator to work with. Do not rush into a decision to hire someone you are unsure of. Finding a good Chinese translator is very important if you want to do business in China. With him or her to assist you, you can accelerate your expansion and grow your business faster.

 


Over the passing years, the methods of translation of texts from one language to another have advanced in leaps and bounds. Technology has come to aid the processes making them meaningful and accurate. It is one of the specialized kinds of translations handled by technical translation companies in which technical documents are translated from one language to another.

Technical translation strictly concerns texts like user guides, manuals and such pieces that cover subject areas on technology and science. It is because these texts carry subjective terminologies that have very specific sense that these documents need to be translated by individuals specializing in the subject and language.

The Methodology

All standard technical documents are translated using a 5 step process. Like regular translation, these documents can be changed starting from the first sentence. The process involves 5 distinct phases, namely:

* Study and Analysis: The process commences with studying the documents of the project. At this stage, the context of the project is studied and analyzed and the tone and nature are determined. This is integral to the outcome of the translation. A translator, at this point, also decides the kind of approach that would be correct for the project at hand.

* Comprehension: Next, the translators try and comprehend the project assessing the level of its difficulty. Although translators are assigned projects by their area of expertise, there are times when they are challenged by unfamiliar subsets of topics. That is when a translator needs to do some studies on the subject at hand so that a solid understanding can be formed on the topic before getting to work on it. The process of comprehension is probably the longest, considering the nature of the project one is working on.

* Translation: At this point, the real work starts. In order for them to translate the entire script cover to cover, they need to go front and back. They go back to the reference materials, research works and other available matter while doing the translation. The process of translation encompasses certain codes of ethics and laws that are subjective of the region concerned. Sometimes, such censorships can affect the end product. However, the quality of the translation work largely depends on efficiency of the individual or individuals in charge of the work and the resources they have at their disposal.

* Revision: At the final stage, the translators take to revising the entire work. All errors are corrected at this stage and misinformation pruned out. Formatting, paragraphing, indenting, etc. are also done at this stage. When everything is properly completed, the text is submitted to the client for a final evaluation.

Clients are welcome to send their feedback about the work. Any changes required in the text are also duly attended to by the providers. Sometimes, these companies also offer website localization and language translations services through teams of experts. Partnering with companies that are trusted is advised to achieve best quality work, even if that means spending a little extra each time.

 


It is necessary for you to hire a professional translator for your business if you conduct businesses with overseas associates. A capable business translator is very beneficial for your company. This is because when you conduct business with overseas management, you need to submit business proposals and plans to them in their local languages. You will encounter different accounting and documentation procedures when doing business overseas. This is where your business translator will be able to assist you in.

A professional business translator's work is not only limited to translate one language to another. He or she needs to present something that is nice, professional and original so as to attract more business for you. In the translation service industry, competition is high. Companies are fighting cut-throat price wars in order to win customers. Personally, I feel that you should not take up a translation service just because the price is cheap. Instead, you should look at the professionalism and experience of the company before you decide who to go for. Some of the professionalism conditions that a translator must have are as followed:

1. Proficient in language translation. This is the most basic criteria that a professional translator must have. He or she needs to be able to convey the message correctly and efficiently, as well as masters the source and target languages. When it comes to business translation, he or she needs to be able to translate the documents to its native language or equivalent.

2. Have an ethical code of conduct. Professional translators often come across confidential information and documents. He or she needs to be ethical and should never use the information to harm the client. Trust is very important. If the translator is able to gain the trust of his clients, it will help establish his careers in the industry.

3. Never stop learning. A professional translator needs to be well-verse with the latest communication tools in this fast-moving technological world. He or she must always be ready to adapt to any change. If a translator stops learning, he or she will be outdated in the industry and thus unable to service the client efficiently.

Professionalism is very important in the translation industry. When you are choosing a company to hire, make sure that you look into their experience and portfolio. You can go to the Internet and search for translation agencies in your local area. Today, you have choices. Take your time to screen through every translation agency and choose the best company for your translation tasks.

 


Atlanta, GA, January 31, 2014 - Every owner of a product by Microsoft, Google, Nuance, Apple, or Android already has within the device one or more brilliantly constructed yet under-utilized software applications that, when combined with certain software by other technology giants, have groundbreaking implications for doing global business and conversing across languages.

Translate Your World, developers of language solutions and cutting-edge mobile software, harnessed several relatively unknown and rarely used applications by the giants of technology and tied them all together in a slick system that almost completely eliminates language barriers. For the first time in history, people can talk, teach, and conduct business around the world without speaking a word of another language using this practical solution whose results can be as high as 96% accurate.

Translate Your World translates words that are spoken in real-time as people talk. When a webinar or conference is given, thousands of people can go to a webpage to read a translation of the speech as subtitles (78 languages), hear automated voice (35 languages), or hear United Nations' style simultaneous interpretation via the Web, each selecting their preferred language. And business meetings can be conducted with people speaking in several languages.

By including coordinated access to the multiple software giants under one umbrella, Translate Your World enables users around the world to talk or text with each other in almost any language on any modern device. The across-language experience is smooth, easy to comprehend, and functions on laptop, desktop, smartphone, and tablet. Translate Your World keeps track of participant language selections, preferences for subtitles or voice, plus controls translation software selection, distribution, and archiving.

Each giant of technology has attained a clear footprint in at least one vital area of language automation; some excel in converting speech to text, some in converting text to speech, and others in automated translation. Surprisingly, many of their most innovative works are embedded in side-applications that are hidden from the general public, often within the "accessibility" areas of a device for the hearing- and vision-impaired.

By accessing these applications in a single solution via Translate Your World, that adds a choice of several automated translation software plus an option to use today's most modern downloadables from Nuance and Livestream, the results are astonishing. Simply by talking into a field on a webpage, a user is empowered to communicate with others who do not speak the same language. Alternatively, meeting organizers can share simultaneous interpretation through earbuds on user laptops and mobile devices. And these across-language communication solutions cover not only voice conversations, but also webinars and conferences using WebEx, Skype, Adobe Connect, GoToMeeting, Blackboard, and other internet communication.

At the World Trade Center in Atlanta, Jim Beach, a McGraw-Hill best selling author, gave an eight-week international webinar using Translate Your World. His online course drew attendees from Europe, Africa, South America, and Asia, all converging to participate in the first webinar in history to be offered in 50 languages simultaneously. Fascinated entrepreneurs viewed subtitles in their language, and used the multi-language chat-back to type questions and comments, translated for the speaker. At the end of the sessions, Jim Beach declared, "One attendee in the Middle East called the software 'stunning' and a group in Haiti told me that tears were pouring down their faces because a course was finally being offered in their language."

Sue Reager, CEO of @International Services, who organizes interpretation for conferences using Translate Your World, summarized, "There has never been anything like this. It turns a local event into a global experience. We are all eager to see how international business and education will be impacted by Translate Your World."

Its the most wonderful time of the year again, and countries around the world will soon be preparing to celebrate the Christmas Season. That being the case, I thought it may be fun to use Website Translation to find, and share the different ways of saying Merry Christmas in various languages. Now, I cant say that you or I can pronounce them, but it is fun to see how the birth of Jesus is believed, and cherished all over Earth. Come on, lets start our Christmas journey.

Our first stop will be to use Website Translation to translate a website from English to Arabic, and say, "Milad Majid"! Christmas morning in the Middle East is traditionally spent with friends and family, enjoying coffees, liquers, and sugared almonds. A lunch of chicken and rice, and Kubbeh, or crushed boiled wheat, mixed with meat, onion, salt and paper, is the main meal of the season, usually served at the grandparents or eldest sons' home. Prayers are said in the name of Jesus, and Mohammed all through the month of December.

Next on our holiday tour is China! In using Website Translation to translate a website from English to Chinese, "Gun Tso Sun Tan'Gung Haw Sun" is said to wish others a Merry Christmas! In 2005, according to their government, there were more then 16 million Chinese Christians. While most will overlook Christmas festivities, some do go to church for services in a variety of languages, including Chinese, English and even in French. Christmas services are held at state-run churches in China, and shops, offices, and restaurants, stay open on Christmas Day, but International schools and Embassies are closed on Christmas Day.

Caroling our way to France, we use Website Translation to translate a website from English to French, and bid you a "Joyeux Noel"! Here, Christmas is celebrated very elaborately, even more so than in America. Even today, in Cathedral squares all around France, the story of Christ's birth is re-enacted by players or actors, in a crèche. If you are a French Christmas lover, it's a definite must-see!

Moving along like Santas sleigh, we fly over to use Website Translation to translate a website from English to German, and hear "Fröhliche Weihnachten" being said among the locals, as they buy holiday cookies, marzipan sweets, and the traditional German Christmas tree pastry, Christbaumgeback, a white dough that can be molded into shapes and baked for Christmas tree decorations, in the always well stocked bakeries. A variety of toys and other gifts are offered in the outdoor markets as well, with little dolls made up of fruit as the traditional Christmas toys. As Germans immigrated to other lands, the custom of The Christmas Tree was spread, making it the most popular Christmas Tradition in Germany. These trees have a special significance for Germans and are known as "trees of life".

Christmas in Japan is quite different then America, and is actually mostly commercial, rather then religious, as most citizens there practice Buddhism and Shinto. When using Website Translation to translate a website from English to Japanese, we hear "Merii Kurisumasu" being wished upon one another. Christmas Eve is the main celebration day, and only children receive gifts from parents, as Santa only leaves gifts with the parents of children that still believe he exists. Once the cat is out of the bag, & Santa is known to not be real, no more presents!!! Most families do get Christmas trees for their celebrations, and more people are now decorating the outsides of their homes too.

As I use Website Translation to translate a website from English to Korean, we wish you a "Sung Tan Chuk Ha", and find that Korean citizens follow more along the lines of a traditional American Christmas. Korea is the only East Asian country to recognize Christmas as a national holiday, focusing more on the religious aspect rather then the commercialism. Families do give presents, decorate trees, and display store bought lights, but prefer to give time and love to one another instead. They attend Mass on Christmas Eve and Christmas Day, and believe it or not, the younger generations hold caroling parties as their Christmas festivities!

Nearing the tail end of our Christmas expedition, I use Website Translation to translate a websi


Why I Won't Learn Esperanto
From time to time people ask me about Esperanto.

Is it worth learning?

What are the benefits of being able to speak it?

Will it help me learn another language?

Well… I’ve decided to answer these questions finally.

I’ve gone into quite a bit of detail on the main reasons why I have absolutely zero interest in ever learning it and why I would not recommend it to anybody inquiring about its ‘benefits’.

Now, I know this will probably stir up a beehive (I wish I could say I’m sorry but facts don’t care about hurt feelings) though I do want to make it clear that if you do love Esperanto and it’s something you’re passionate about, I’m not trying to shoot you down in flames or discourage you here.

It sounds like I am but believe me I’m not.

By all means, pursue what you love.

While I’m personally not overly interested in constructed languages generally (conlangs for short), I do understand how they’re a fun hobby for many people and I find a lot of the work put into their creation seriously impressive.

As you’ll see here, my reasons for having no desire to learn Esperanto have very little to do with it being a conlang per se (or pointless arguments about its vocabulary or syntax).

Ready?

Let’s get started.

 

I always say that if you want to get to the bottom of what any movement is all about, look at its founder and origin first.

Who developed Esperanto and why was it developed?

If you think that Esperanto is just a basic constructed language put together by a language nerd back in the 1800’s that went viral, you’re wrong.

I also made the mistake of thinking its purpose was that simple.

Unlike other conlangs, Esperanto is 100% ideologically motivated.

It was made with a serious political objective in mind which still drives its propagation even today.

The language has always been used as a means to a political end (which is why dictatorships actively sought to suppress it in the early 20th century).

The bloke who created it,, developed a political and religious philosophy (a cultish offshoot of Judaism that looked more like something straight out of The Communist Manifesto).

It’s clear that Zamenhof envisaged his made-up, simplified language as facilitating the breaking down of national and religious identity which he despised in his own community (including patriotism which he regarded as something evil). He also quite intolerantly spoke of free religious expression as a “barbarity”.

It’s this ideological baggage and taint that’s attached to the language that turns me off it completely.

Esperanto is the glossolalia of the faithful.

It also explains why so many dedicated Esperantists are by nature politically extreme.

Which gets me to my next point:

 

Wherever you travel, you meet people of all different persuasions.

No matter what language you learn, you’ll meet speakers all the time from the far left to the far right of the political spectrum. You’ll also meet non-believers, nominal believers, the devout and the extreme.

This is a normal thing.

This is a human thing.

The most crucial kind of diversity is the diversity of thought and opinion.

When you lose that, society’s in big trouble.

Communities everywhere around the world are filled with people who think very different things to each other and it’s this freedom that defines a healthy society.

Esperanto, being the ideological tool that it is, opposes this.

Even with constructed languages like Tolkien Elvish or Na’avi for example, if you look at the enthusiasts, you’ll find a wide array of people from all sorts of ideological backgrounds. They might be completely opposed to each other as far their opinions of the world are concerned but they come together for a common passion that they both share.

Now, I’m not saying that there absolutely aren’t any learners of Esperanto who don’t care about its politics or aren’t part of the status quo (see for example).

I went to NASK [North American Summer Esperanto Institute] a couple of times and felt totally isolated politically, and I’m not even the farthest right person I know. There are some great people at NASK and a lot of people willing to argue without getting offended, but a whole bunch of extreme far leftists who are OF COURSE politically correct (correct in their political views, as well as being PC beyond all reason).

I’m sure you could quite easily learn Esperanto without ever losing your mind as someone on the periphery of acceptable thought.

But since languages exist to enable us to communicate with a wider community of speakers, it’s imperative to ask yourself what kind of community are you restricting yourself to exactly?

Where’s the fun in spending time with ideological clones?

 

Without doubt the most common and sensible reason why myself and so many others are turned off Esperanto is that it has no authentic culture.

Esperanto has no country or geographical ties to an ancestral homeland.

Unlike natural languages, you don’t learn Esperanto because you’re fascinated by a country, people group or location.

Outside of a few crackpots who decided to turn their kids into circus acts by raising them with Esperanto as a first language, it has no inter-generational identity or national/tribal history.

It’s therefore the same as any other conlang in this regard.

But…

Esperantists always and predictably fire back with:

“Umm… you’re wrong. We do have a culture. We have Esperanto music, food, events, literature… etc.

To which I reply that this shows an incredibly shallow and poor understanding of what culture actually is.

It’s exactly this kind of ignorant interpretation of the term ‘culture’ that I denounce in almost everything I do and write.

And it’s not just me:

…culture is defined as the shared patterns of behaviors and interactions, cognitive constructs, and affective understanding that are learned through a process of socialization. These shared patterns identify the members of a culture group while also distinguishing those of another group.”

This:

“Most social scientists today view culture as consisting primarily of the symbolic, ideational, and intangible aspects of human societies… The essence of a culture is not its artifacts, tools, or other tangible cultural elements but how the members of the group interpret, use, and perceive them.

And then this:

“Culture: learned and shared human patterns or models for living; day- to-day living patterns. these patterns and models pervade all aspects of human social interaction. Culture is mankind’s primary adaptive mechanism.”

These are just a few of the excellent definitions of ‘culture’ on for the University of Minnesota’s Center for Advanced Research on Language Acquisition.

Look at the terms used to describe culture here.

Intangible aspects of human societies, patterns of behaviors and interactions, cognitive constructs.

Culture is an incredibly deep and multi-layered phenomenon.

To limit it to things like music and cuisine is insanely ignorant and unfortunately indicative of how a lot of modern treat culture even outside the Esperanto community.

These people limit culture to things like food, clothing and performances which means that ironically the people who are often the most vocal about cultural diversity are also usually the most culturally naïve.

Culture is infinitely more complex than kebabs, concerts and grass skirts.

The original goal for Esperanto in fact conflicts with the very nature of human cultures as defined above which serve to separate and distinguish humans as unique groups.

 

So yeah, the extreme thing.

Discussing Esperanto with an Esperantist is like discussing theology with a Jehovah’s Witness or animal rights with a PETA activist.

They have every single response memorized to the letter and argue until you give up.

They’ll try to convince you that even the gods themselves speak Esperanto.

It’s this extreme zeal that makes everything online written by Esperantists about Esperanto so horrid and unbearable to read.

But again this comes back to the ideological motivation that drives it.

We’re not just talking about a language here but a political movement.

As you probably know by now, I’m passionate about.

I like to tell people about it and share my experiences.

But if somebody gives me a reason why they don’t like it or have no reason to pursue it, I don’t go on the offense to try and convince them that Arabic is the greatest linguistic achievement in the history of mankind.

I frankly don’t care if you hate it.

Most Esperantists however are self-appointed evangelists.

 

Any third language you learn is going to be easier than your second language.

Your fourth language is going to be a little easier than your third.

In fact, the more you learn, the easier it all becomes because (a) you become familiar with various language families and a wider range of shared vocabulary and (b) your metalinguistic awareness increases.

This means that the more grammatical concepts you get your head around, the easier it becomes for you to recognize them in other languages.

So naturally, Esperanto is going to make you more aware of how, say, languages work.

But it won’t necessarily save you any time and in fact is more likely to delay your real goals of learning the language you actually want to learn.

It would be like learning the guitar because you really want to learn the violin.

Sure you’ll learn about music theory, get a bit of familiarity with a string instrument that’s kinda similar but at the end of day, if you spend 6 months learning the guitar, that’s 6 months you could have been investing into the violin.

More importantly this is time you should be spending with your target language community.

This is the time that you should be using to .

My first language took years for me to pick up serious momentum and I was really slow at first but those first months and years were the most important, formative years for me in terms of acculturation.

The whole process of spending time with the target language community even though you’re grappling with difficult, new language concepts, is so incredibly important.

Not just important. Crucial.

And instead you want to hang out with a political cult and learn a practically useless conlang?

Talk about epic time wasting.

 

Zamenhof and his followers envisaged a world where Esperanto was the global second language; the with no baggage or bias.

It’s so easy that even an illiterate peasant could pick it up quickly, bridging the communication gap and ultimately breaking down hostility between all peoples.

A true international language.

The common argument against this of course is that we already have that.

It’s called English (and to a lesser extent languages like French and Spanish in the former colonies).

Esperantists are uncomfortable with this fact.

They’re uncomfortable with the reality that one of the natural byproducts of colonialism was the very thing that they’ve been trying desperately to achieve. Yes, English is a “harder” language grammatically but despite its relative difficulty, it’s still accomplished what Esperanto could not.

We no longer talk about England as being the final authority on what constitutes correct or incorrect English either – there’s American English, English, South African English for example.

Linguists now agree that there are many other varieties such as Indian English and Singaporean English as well which are an authority unto themselves.

The Internet is basically unusable without English too.

The Esperanto dream has been fulfilled naturally whether they like it or not and people in every corner of the world are under increasing pressure to learn English simply to function in the 21st century.

English has succeeded where Esperanto failed miserably.

Now, I’m actually opposed to having a global language personally. This includes English.

We’re rapidly losing languages and more than half of them will be lost forever by the end of this century.

For that reason combined with the fact that we already have an international lingua franca whether we like it or not, a constructed medium like Esperanto is absolutely unnecessary.

So now you know why I won’t learn Esperanto.
