“Well written and in a straight-to-the point, jargon-free style, it is a very useful orientation and reference for ... the often stressful task of choosing a translation agency.”
—Multilingual Magazine
Go global with confidence
Your translation agency is your voice to the world. Select the right agency, and the world will hear you loud and clear. But how do you select the right agency?
This book will help. You'll learn what questions to ask. You'll learn how to read between the lines of a price quote. And you'll have a short list of translation agencies from which to begin your selection process. This guide will take the mystery -- and the pain -- out of selecting and managing a translation agency.
Translating the translation industry
Selecting a translation agency should be a simple process, but it's not. There are literally thousands from which to choose, and every one will claim to offer the highest quality at the lowest price. And then there's the confusing terminology and acronyms, like SLV and MLV, internationalization and translation memory.
Now in its fourth edition, The Savvy Client's Guide to Translation Agencies is designed to be used as both a learning tool and reference. The first two-thirds of the book demystifies the translation industry and its many complex terms and technologies. The last third of the book includes a directory of 44 translation agencies, to help you begin your search for the right agency. As has always been our policy, we do not charge agencies to be included in this guide. We take great pride in offering a directory that is both objective and focused on helping clients make sound buying decisions.
This guide will teach you:
  • 10 questions you should ask any prospective agency
  • What you need to know before taking your web site global
  • How to differentiate among translation agencies
  • How translation is moving to the cloud -- and which agencies are already there
  • What to know about localizing iPhone or Android apps
  • What machine translation is and how it is transforming the industry
  • How to read "between the lines" of your translation quote
