Style Guides Are Critical To Translation Effectiveness

For recurring translations or larger projects, speaking with a singular voice can prove to be a challeneg. To ensure consistency, a style guide is essential to provide guidence to the translator.

Localized Campaigns Outperform English Versions

Increasing the quality and localization effectiveness of any translation is critical to your success. Our ISO 17100 certified processes provide the foundation for the expert translator to build a style guide that supports content that feels more authentic even when having multiple translators working with your content.

Translating your communications so that they are appropriately localized is difficult enough without having to try, ad hoc, to figure out what was done before. Worse still, would be to present a mish mash of inconsistant translation decisions.
