How to choose a good translation agency?

After opening a browser and entering the password "translation agency" we are overwhelmed with the news and offers of the agencies which present themselves as experts in translation. They offer professional service and low prices at the same time. But how to recognize if the agency found by us is definitely the best? First of all, it is worth to consider what translation do we expect. Agency that offers the translation of documents, not necessarily have sworn or simultaneous translations in offer. If we need a translation of a document, the case is quite simple. We need a person who knows the language and is able to be legible, clear and in compliance with the appropriate vocabulary to translate the document presented by us.

However, if we are looking for a sworn translator, we need to remember to check if the advertising translator has the legal authorization for this function. This permission is granted by the Ministry of Justice after passing the exam for sworn translator.The case is a little more complicated when it comes to a simultaneous translation (interpreting).This type of interpreter not only should have an excellent knowledge of a foreign language, but also should complete preparatory courses, which include courses in soundproof booth and fast, comprehensible live translations. It would be good to get examples of translations offered by that person, but as we know, sometimes that is not possible.

If we want to obtain software locator, we must know that those are the people, that except the foreign language knowledge, must be also good IT specialists and websites encoders. Their job refers not only to website content translations but also to adapting it to web page layout and re-encoding of the page. As a result a website should be displayed by the browser in both languages. To be sure that the person you want to hire can handle the translation of the page and reputing it on the server, it would be good to ask to send web pages that have been altered it this way. By that we can see and verify the interpreter's qualifications.
