There are people who believe that they can act as a translator for companies or individuals simply because they speak intermediate level English. Knowing a language is fine if all you want to do is communicate with a foreigner, but it is a big step from there to offering your services as a professional translator. Did you know that one of the professional services most in demand in 2020 will be professional translation? Let us explain why.
Professional translation, essential for companies
2020 is expected to be a year of economic recession, but what does that really mean? Well, companies in all sectors should start preparing for the worst. If there is an economic recession, competition between companies is likely to increase and they will not want to risk losing customers. One of the factors that will help them maintain a certain status, especially with international customers, is using a professional translation service to maintain the visibility that is so important to them.
Everyone likes memes. How many times have you laughed at a meme about translation? Plenty of times I bet! However, entertaining though they are, they need to be corrected. The professional translation services offered by translation agencies are the best way to correct those mistakes we all see in tourist translations, website translations and medical translations. When professionalism is needed in the area of languages, you need a professional translator and in 2020 they will be more necessary than ever due to the boom in automatic translators and the unforgivable mistakes they make.
Specialisation, the key
A good professional translator is one who specialises in one or two languages. The more specialised they are, the better their work. Undoubtedly, this is another important reason why the professional translation services provided by agencies such as Okodia, with its specialised translators, will be among the most in demand in 2020.
