Evaluating Translation CompaniesTranslation is seen to be a more and more important service in this day in age. There are hundreds if not thousands of firms in the industry that have come onto the scene to provide translation services to address these growing market demands.
For the conventional user, they will most likely look for free translation services and software on the internet for every day translations, more often than not looking up a word and translating it into another language. For this purpose, those free translation programs work very well, however once you get into longer documents and even mere sentences, the level of class and accuracy dramatically spirals downwards in many cases.
If you don't believe me, then try taking one well-written paragraph in any language you prefer, ideally one that you are a native speaker/writer in, and convert it into an additional language that you also have fluency in. You more likely than not will find that the class of the translation is not only subpar, but even a toddler has a better chance of writing something better.
For personal and limited uses, it's perfectly fine to use these types of methods for your translation needs, but when you start progressing up to the level where you need to incorporate communications to a global audience for business functions, hiring a quality translation services team is highly essential.
