Why is translation so important?

Given the increasing number of users who opt for the services of this type of technological companies, it is advisable to analyse and study the offer of translation services available before hiring. What should be taken into account?

  1. Translation provider with a scalable service: when choosing a translation service, we should find out the technological capacity and experience in translation of each company. Fintech companies are characterised by a growing demand for translation services and, for this reason, a provider must have a future vision and be sure that it can continue to offer a top quality service, even if the volume of translation increases rapidly.
  2. Technological translation service: the technological nature of any Fintech company means that professional translation services must also use innovative technology to provide translation solutions adapted to any need. The use of new technologies, for example, allows the outsourcing of management and translation services, the integration of glossaries, the collaboration and communication between translation provider and client, etc.
  3. The highest quality standards : these companies must transmit credibility and trust and these same values must also be transmitted in their translations. There are various certifications that guarantee the quality of the translations delivered and if the translation services company holds one of these certificates, it will guarantee the quality of the final product.
  4. Translation experience: Apart from being professional translators, linguists are also required to have a good knowledge of the Fintech sector. In this highly innovative sector, it is especially important to be up-to-date with the latest in financial operations and be constantly alert for the appearance of neologisms, such as the term Fintech itself.

If you have a Fintech company, take this tips into account when hiring a translation provider. In AT Language Solutions we believe that the election of a translation service must be a streamlined process and not a barrier for multilingualism.
