Dancing the Translation Tango
It's great when you get a technically qualified, native speaker of a language to review a translation -- usually! But difficulties can arise.
On September 24, Dorothy van Lingen of Net-Translators will discuss the often complex task of involving an in-country reviewer (ICR) in the translation and localization process. She will define the role of the ICR and explain why so many companies fail to manage this process effectively.
By explaining how to set guidelines for feedback, what to comment on and why, and how to maintain a schedule, Dorothy will provide practical insight into managing this complex challenge. Be sure to come with your questions!
Join us for this, our first program of the 2014-2015 season, and reconnect with friends after a long, busy summer. We'd love to see you there!
