3 Steps to Starting a Website Translation Project Right
Hi, I’m Yonnas. I’m a sales engineer here at MotionPoint.
Before you invest a lot of time, energy and money into your website translation project, consider these steps to ensure you start off on the right track.
1. Determine the scope
Before you begin, decide how large your project should be. Do you need to translate your entire website? Or maybe just start out with key sections? How about your blog and your press releases?
2. Ensure fast, accurate turnaround time
Look for a translation provider that delivers high quality translation fast, like within one day. And they should use professional linguists that are native speakers and are familiar with your industry and brand.
3. Consider the approach
There are several approaches to website translation, so choose the one that’s best for you. For example, will you choose human translation, machine translation, or a combination? How about translation technology? There are options like proxy, that replicate your English website, a CMS connector or API that pipes translation in and out of your CMS, or will you choose a combination of these technologies?
These are just a few tips to keep in mind with multilingual website projects.
