Qualified Translators: Who are They?
A translator is “a person who translates from one language into another”. Qualified translators do this as a profession, having trained in translation theory and translation techniques: they are certified by degree diplomas, membership to official translators associations, certifications, etc.
Although a thorough knowledge of the chosen working languages is essential, there are other elements that qualify a translator as a professional: an understanding of the profession, knowledge of translation methodology – and of specific terminology in the case of specialized translation -, and in particular, of the rules concerning wording, syntax, grammar…to a particular language and a specific type of translation: scientific, medical, engineering, financial, legal, technical… Experience is also a very important, even crucial, element in order to be considered a qualified translator.
The Role of a Language Services Provider
Language Services Providers can offer translators, revisers, proofreaders, editors, and interpreters that meet the specific needs of each client, in a wide range of specialized fields and language combinations. Because they have a team made up of, not only language professionals and qualified translators, but also team and project managers as well as coordinators, they can provide more efficient services -targeted to each client’s needs – and a more advanced system of quality control and quality assurance in translation.
