Westborough, MA, January 16, 2017 – GlobalVision International, Inc., an expert provider of Technical Translation services specializing in IT translations, medical translation, software localization, website globalization, marketing translation, eLearning Translation, multimedia, audio and video translation and transcreation, announces the results of its 17th annual customer satisfaction survey.
The initial savings offered by what appears to be inexpensive goods, or services, can be deceptive at times. Just like buying a cheap car that turns out to be a real lemon in need of continuous repairs, those early low costs can dig into your pocketbook over time.
This principle can be applied to hunting for a lower translation rate as well — especially in this age of modern communication, and easily updatable media translation. The least expensive translation vendor you find might actually wind up costing your firm a lot of money, and wasted time, down the line.
Modern engineering and science often overlap with the fantastical universes created by science fiction — a literary genre that clearly grows out of real-world scientific innovations, before flying off into the realm of the imagination. Some of the most creative technical minds humanity has ever produced have written, or at the very least, read a ton of sci-fi.
Software localization is both an art and a science. Yet is is almost never taught in schools. It is learnt on an as needed basis during product development, or worst, during product release! If you are looking for a comprehensive Software Localization website that can guide you through your most difficult software localization projects, look no more. SoftwareLocalization.us is released to do just that! Be proactive and check it out before you next international release!!
Working in the translation and localization industry is not an easy chore. Constantly battling deadlines in all international time-zones, managing stakeholders with different languages and cultures, while trying to normalize it all for our clients who are constantly demanding faster, cheaper and better service, is definitely not a walk in the park!
The legend behind the Tower of Babel is humanity’s attempt to explain why the planet hosts so many different languages. The story is of a God who wants to divide his people up by ensuring that they can’t understand one another, thus limiting their ability to cooperate, and build structures capable of reaching heaven.
Even though China and India are booming economically, and the state of globalization and liberal democracies are definitely in flux (or perhaps in peril) these days, the United States is still the largest, most robust economy on the planet. While experts will continue to debate what the future global economy may bring, or look like in the years to come, many financial advantages can still be had by working with U.S. translation companies.
When it comes to technical and engineering translations, a practiced translation service like GlobalVision understands how important it is to work with qualified translators with engineering and technical backgrounds. Apart from the core job of nailing down accurate technical and industrial translations, a translation team working on different localization projects often needs to focus on the formatting and design aspects of the end product as well. This can include schematics, training manuals, technical drawings, safety and installation multimedia presentations, CAD drawings, user interfaces and more.
While the engineering, manufacturing and tech-driven economies of East Asia — especially among the big three power players of China, Japan and Korea — tend to flow back and forth as to which nation is on top (depending on the industry), the world still looks to and depends on this dynamic region for innovation in engineering, plus massive amounts of manufacturing.
While English and Arabic number among the most common languages spoken in Africa — with French taking up big chucks of linguist real estate as well — Swahili (a Bantu language) and Amharic (a Semitic language spoken in Ethiopia) boast some pretty substantial numbers that shouldn’t be ignored either. Businesses seeking to expand operations and commercial outreach in Sub-Saharan Africa need to focus on European languages and Arabic when it comes to translations, of course. But African translation services that also focus on indigenous African languages can give a business a competitive edge — and access to millions of additional potential customers.
The economy of South Korea has accomplished a lot over the last few decades, creating the world’s 11th strongest economy as measured by GDP, while fostering a business and research climate of invention, technological advancement, and investment opportunities.
The planet is a big place, full of all kinds of different languages, many related to one another, while others are off on their own (language isolates) like the Basque language, or exist in smaller groupings, like the Finno-Ugric languages (Estonian, Finnish, Hungarian). And even though, from an economic and commercial standpoint, some languages and global translations stand out more than others due to their worldwide presence — Chinese, English, French and Spanish come to mind — there are plenty of less common languages that need to be translated for business purposes as well. When it comes to global translations, it’s very important to appreciate how the power of professional human translation can improve authentic local translations, which in turn help your company’s message come across much more effectively.
