Your English skills do not mean your ability as a translator

  • Many a candidate seeking a career as a translator will wrongly believe that his or her ability to speak or write another language equals the ability to make a translation that the client can purchase. However, experience shows that even a translation by a highly educated bilingual candidate can be rife with errors. The translation that can be sold will need be accurate but not literal, free from grammatical errors (including spacing issues) and produced with correct terminology. Remember, several minor spacing issues can make an otherwise good translation look bad.
