The benefits of working with a translation agency

25. February 2020

A translation agency specialises in their work and in helping their clients reach more people. An agency differs from an individual translator in its capacity to work on multiple projects, in multiple languages, and across many industries, using a network of experienced professional translators. In this blog post, we’re going to explore some of the benefits of working with a translation agency.


The global market and the translation agency

Before the rise of online bookings for travel requirements, most people relied on a travel agent. The agent existed to put together an itinerary, allowing people to travel all over the world. In much the same way, a translation agency allows people and companies to communicate with people globally, regardless of the language they speak.


Connect with more people

One of the primary benefits of using a translation agency is the capacity to connect with more people. If you’re seeking to expand into international markets, making use of a translation agency allows you to target specific locations and multiple languages. Localisation is a vital aspect of the translation process, one that agencies like ours specialise in and can assist with as you market your products and services internationally.


Use language people know and understand

Anyone can use an online translator to get a rough translation. The problem is that this doesn’t necessarily reflect how people really speak, and can lead to errors and hiccups that will cause confusion.


Speak to your customers’ cultures

Culture plays a big part in how you communicate to your customers. What do they value? How do they speak, really? A translation agency provides a means to directly communicate with your customers in a way that they understand, and with a mind towards their values and the area they’re living in.


Experience you can’t get anywhere else

A translation agency comes with two types of experience:

  • The company’s experience in dealing with multiple translation requirements, across languages and industries
  • The individually involved translators’ experiences in working across languages and cultures

You can only find this combination of experiences when you work with an agency. As a result of this, you can rely on a translation agency to know what they’re doing and to better understand your needs. You’re no longer basing your translations on the experience of one individual.


Multi-industry knowledge

Where a translation agency differs most from an individual freelancer is its capacity to work across multiple industries. In our case, the key areas we’ve focused on include:

  • Finance
  • Law
  • Marketing
  • IT
  • Medicine
  • Automotive

By working with an agency, you can benefit from a breadth of knowledge and experience, and work with one team for multiple needs. This is especially important when your translation needs extend beyond an individual field. Choosing a translation agency to manage your needs can save you time, which in turn saves you money.


Access to a range of language pairs

A language pair is how we describe the languages we can translate from and which languages we can translate those languages to - otherwise known as the source and target languages. Where your translation needs require multiple language pairs, a translation agency is the best place to find assistance. Again, this is a case of saving time and money by working with one business, rather than

seeking individual translators for every translation.
