Translator Training in Bogotá, Colombia
We had a great training session for some of our translators recently – thanks to all of your for attending and for playing such an active role!
I think it is so important for us to share ideas and make sure that we understand what clients are looking for – being on the same page really helps us to deliver high-quality solutions to our translation clients here in Bogotá. In fact, I would say that in pretty much any walk of life, and especially in business, being able to understand what the client is looking for (rather than just assuming) can lead to much more successful and longer-term relationships.
Specifically in terms of translation, clients here in Bogotá are often looking for a document that closely resembles the original – precisely translated of course – but with all the graphics, images, tables, headers and footers correctly appearing in the translated document. This means that, as translators, not only do we need to have the required linguistic ability to deliver the correct message, but we also need to be competent in formatting documents so that we can deliver a fully-functional translation.
Other things to look out for include the appropriate and constant use of terms throughout the document and the correct use of numerical conventions – all of these considerations add up to a better client experience and that is exactly what we are looking for!
So, thanks again to all of you who took part and let’s continue to focus on provide outstanding quality to our translation clients here in Bogotá.
All the best!
