Luckily, it doesn’t have to be that way. By taking a few simple steps upfront, you can avoid the common pitfalls that derail most translation projects.

  • Get “buy in” from stakeholders before the project begins, through style guides and glossaries.
  • Give your translation provider complete source files, including fonts and images.
