FAQ and [serious] Misconceptions about Translations You Should know about

#1 “Dave in HR speaks some French. We’ll just ask him”

finding a good english translator Speaking – a bit of French – IS NOT writing.Even if you regularly negotiate in French, 99 times out of 100, your written command of a foreign language will be immediately rec­ognizable as “foreign”

Knowing a foreign language does not make you a translator

Professional translators train for years.

Translators know how to craft translations that don’t feel like translations.

And that only comes from years of study and practice.

“Akward or sloppy use of the French language is not amusing in business. It’s insulting”

#2 “We can’t afford professional translation”


inexpensive translator

Good translation isn’t expensive:

Average cost of creating content = $0.65

Average cost of translation = $0.10

And it usually takes just 1 or 2 sales for a translation to pay for itself.

#3 “We don’t need to pay professionals – we’ve got Google Translate”

Automatic Translation is incoherent, full of mistakes, bizarre and can be offensive to your customers.

hire a professional translator instead

Errors will lead customers to question the quality of your product, and will decrease their trust in your company.

Google Translate is never good enough to represent your business.

#4 “Everyone understands English. Translation is a waste of money”

This may surprise you, but 75% of the world’s population speaks no English at all.

Like everyone, your French customers expect clear, useful information in language they understand.

By offering well-translated content, you make them feel valued and respected.

You also make it easier for them to buy from you.

If you can’t give French prospects the information they need in French, they’re only a click away from your competitors

 cheap french translations

Of those who do speak some English, most will only make buying decisions in their first language.

#5 “We just don’t need professional translation”

Quality is crucial.

“Good translation is a standalone piece of professional writing. It must inform, influence and persuade as effectively as the text it’s based on.”

#6 “There are cheaper ways to do it”

You’ll easily find thousands of mega-cheap translators. But you’re unlikely to get professional work from any of them.

A cheap translation is like a $1 t-shirt. From a distance it looks OK. But corners had to be cut.

Is that good enough for your business? Probably not.

Hiring a bad translator is doing your business no good.
