Each project is assigned to the most appropriate team, ensuring that you always work with the best project manager and translator for the job.
Why are specialist education and training translators SO IMPORTANT?
Education and training can have a huge impact on both businesses and people in general. When the materials are inaccurately translated, the consequences can be substantial:
Failure to educate. The first point to make is that poorly translated educational materials will fail to actually educate! Education materials will often cover some complex subjects, so it’s vital that the specifics of the topic are translated accurately. Otherwise the text could end up being at best confusing, and at worst nonsensical.
Ineffective testing. Anyone sitting an exam deserves a fair test. Any poorly phrased questions could end up confusing the person sitting the exam. It may be – as in the case of a multiple-choice exam – that the supplied answers don’t even make sense in relation to the question.
Inefficient professional training. A number of the materials that we translate are for professional firms looking to develop their staff. If the training materials used aren’t completely accurate, this could confuse staff and lead to professional negligence. If the company deals with heavy machinery or electrical equipment, for example, the consequences of this could be fatal.
Wasted money. The chances are that if you’re planning to have some educational materials translated, your firm is already heavily invested in them. If the materials are distributed with inaccuracies, they will be less effective and a substantial percentage of your investment could be wasted.
These are just some of the issues that can arise as a result of poor translation. To find out how we can help, give us a call today on 01727 862722.
