When the time has come to take your product to an international level, translation is necessary. In a previous article, we showed you in general terms the difference between freelance translators and translation agencies. This time, we’ll talk to you about the advantages of hiring an agency, and we’ll give you some advice for you to decide which option is best according to your needs.
More Languages Available
Freelance translators usually work with only two languages, maybe three. On the other hand, translation agencies have many languages available to you. The reason is because they work with freelancers specialized in certain language combinations, so, whatever your needs are, an agency is more likely to fulfill them. If your project is multilingual, that is a huge advantage, since an agency can manage the different language combinations you need.
Similarly to language availability, a translation agency works with translators specialized in different fields. A translation agency can offer you high-quality translations about very different topics, such as technical, official, creative, medical texts, among others. If your projects involve different topics or specialized translation, we recommend you to hire a high-quality technical translations agency.
While freelancers are limited to their own capacity, agencies have the advantage of coordinating big projects thanks to their teams of translators and proofreaders, where each person is assigned a specific task. If you have a big project coming up, don’t hesitate to hire a translation agency. A great team produces great results!
Shorter Due Dates
Along with working with large volumes of text, translation agencies can achieve that goal in a shorter period of time, for each project is assigned to more than one person at a time. Again, team work is essential for the client to receive the best result possible.
Since translation agencies interact with many people at a time, it is necessary to follow a certain procedure for quality assurance. In the article we wrote about the importance of quality in translation, we talked about the procedures that must be followed in order to accomplish the quality standards and provide a perfect translation service.
Now that you know the advantages of a translation agency, we hope we helped to solve your doubts. Remember that, no matter the choice you make, agencies and freelance translators are your allies at the time of taking your projects to the rest of the world.
