learning multiple languages to further a career

My son is 16 years old and has big plans for his future. He plans to travel the world as a part of his future career, so he wanted to learn at least two other languages before he graduated from high school. I knew that if this was something that he really wanted to do, and that he would do it. I created this blog with the help of my son. We want others to understand how knowing multiple languages can open more doors for future careers than some other skills can. Find out about learning multiple languages right here on our blog.

3 Reasons Why Your Business Needs Professional Spanish Translation

by Clifton Morgan

Have you recently opened or decided to expand a business? Are you wanting to attract the attention of the burgeoning Hispanic market? Although you may already know some Spanish or have hired someone who speaks Spanish to interact with Spanish-speaking customers, you'll likely want to hire a professional to translate your website and any ads that you are planning to run. There are a number of reasons why you should hire a professional translator for these tasks, some of these reasons include:

Better vocabulary: In every language, there are certain words or phrases that should not be used in a business context. There are also words or phrases that you might never have heard of before because they are only used in business contexts. A professional who is skilled at Spanish business translation will know when it's appropriate to use various phrases and when other phrases should be avoided. This knowledge will give your company's Spanish texts a more polished and professional look than if you were to attempt to use only machine translation or if you or your employee were to attempt the translation.

Faster turnaround: If you're not skilled in Spanish business translation, attempting to translate a certain text correctly could take a long time. That could be days or even a couple weeks of writing, rewriting, and tweaking everything so that it looks as correct as possible. This is time that may be better spent by you and your employees doing other tasks. Because a professional translator spends all of his or her time translating between languages, he or she will be able to produce a translated document more quickly and easily than you might otherwise expect. Depending on various factors, you could even be looking at a turnaround time of mere hours instead of several days.

Save money: When you look at the cost of Spanish business translation, it can be all too easy to assume that you can do it for a lower price because your employee's salary is lower on a per-hour basis. However, you may not be taking into account the previously mentioned lengthy times it can take an amateur translator to translate a given text. Although it may seem like a professional translator is going to be more expensive, once you figure in lost productivity and the number of hours it would take your employee to do a similar task, the truth is that the professional translator could wind up costing significantly less than an in-house translation.
