Tips in consigning for translation efficiency

Purpose of use
The highlights of translation vary with the differences in how the translated material will be used. Take technical manuals and publicity brochures for example, the former focuses on accuracy while the latter on fluency. Therefore, translation must be treated respectively according to different functions. In addition, once translation style and tone, etc. are chosen, it would usually take a lot of time to amend it. So please tell us in advance your demands for translation, target readers and other information relating to translation uses so as to help improve the efficiency and quality of translation.

Urgency
Urgent projects and common projects for translation differ from each other in workflow. Urgency is an important factor for arrangement of business plan, so it must be explicitly informed beforehand.

Glossary
The manuscript usually involves customer-specific internal phraseologies, industrial terms and special nouns, etc. If they are provided in advance, the translation quality will be greatly improved. Particularly for important manuscripts, it is often necessary to provide or create a glossary to guarantee the quality of translations. Moreover, if previous translation of reports, manuals, website and other relevant materials are available and submitted as reference information to our company, it may help improve the quality of the translation and shorten the duration of the translation.
