Top three tips for working with translation companies at meetings and conferences

Tips for hiring a translator for your corporate meeting or eventWhen meeting and convention planners put together events outside of their own country, they’re most likely in need of translation services.

Here are three specific tips that can be used when working with a translation company.

  1. Communicate your requirements as clearly as possible. If you have a certain message you’d like to convey through your event planning services, tell the translators before the event so your points won’t be lost in the process.  Providing printed materials ahead of time will make the process much smoother and precise.
  2. If the conference revolves around a particular industry, ask the company if there are translators who have worked with this industry before, as they are more likely to understand technical terms and acronyms.
  3. Pay special attention to VIPs by assigning them their own translator. This will ensure your message gets across in the clearest possible way to the individuals you’re trying to impress at any corporate special event.
