Official or professional communication is a milestone on which a business runs. Smooth communication between two or more business parties ensures the successful achievement of a deal. This implies that you will be able to crack a deal only if you conduct a smooth and error-free communication. At times, when this communication is to be held with foreign clients, the chances to make an error increases by multiple times. Further, communication does not always mean the face to face conversation. It also relates to the communication through official papers or contracts etc.
Some business owners often commit the mistake of relying on a translation software that might offer you instant results, but cannot assure quality. So, to succeed in the global marketplace, you need to keep distance from any automatic translation software.
Few of the many reasons have been highlighted below that every business owner should keep in mind:
1. Decreased Quality Level
The quality level in the translation assignments is very poor. This is basically due to the fact that a machine or a tool cannot understand how a sentence is structured, how the phrases or terminologies are used, what are the exact synonyms of a word in a particular context etc. a human native translator, on the contrary, excels at phrasing the sentences and using appropriate terminologies.
2. Unaware of the Mental Outlook
This is also somewhere related to the quality of translation. A machine cannot understand the emotions with which a particular sentence is written. Normally, the marketing or promotional materials are written in a manner to touch the chords of the customer. Hence, the translation would be such that helps the marketer in approaching the customer. A machine does not understand such emotional texts or language, so it might turn up as a rude message for the customers.
3. Unavailability of Languages
Generally, not all languages are available on the automatic translation tool. If you study about every language, you will find that there are number of regional languages as well that might not be available in the tool. Further, the few language dialects are also generally unavailable that creates a problem with the business owners.
4. Literal Translations
The software actually does not understand the context in which something is being said. It performs a literal or word to word translation. Such translation never portrays the real meaning or message within the content. Hence, the quality is definitely not at the upfront.
There are more factors about the software that makes it an inappropriate choice for the business owners. Do not let the software eat up your revenues. When it is the matter of official communication, do not rely on the automatic tool blindly. Human translators are actually professionals with immense experience in their genre. They are well versed about each and every fact associated with quality translation. Hence, quality level is guaranteed with a thorough quality check.
