Mark Homnack, SimulTrans' Founder and CEO, showed me his disintegrating headphones this evening. He just returned from a marathon trip to visit our company's offices in Ireland and Germany as well as a key client in Tel Aviv.
People often ask me, "Is it important that translators have a medical background to translate life science content?" I always answer with a resounding, "Yes!" No content requires more specialization than medical. It is often insufficient to have only a "medical" background, but necessary to have more in-depth knowledge of cardiovascular, orthopedics, pharmaceuticals, or another specialty.
While the knowledge of specialized terminology is vital for translation success, its overuse is one of the greatest pitfalls for patient communications.
Translation costs can be reduced by planning ahead early in the writing process and by keeping the cost of translation services in mind during authoring and editing phases.
Investing in translation services is extremely important for the growth of your company. Translation breaks through language barriers and delivers your brand message on a global scale. Approximately only 20% of people in the world speak English. Without translation services, your target audience is significantly reduced and your brand becomes negatively exclusive.
Here are some key tips that will help keep your translation costs down.
