What Retail Brands Should Look for in Certified Spanish Translation Companies

The need for high-quality certified Spanish translation services is growing in demand and is already a top priority for brands that deal with international product sales and manufacturing between America, and Spanish-speaking countries.


Many brands have facilities in Mexico, Columbia, Argentina, Costa Rica, Bolivia and even Spain where certified Spanish translation services are paramount to product design, logistics, advertising, and internal operations. If your organization is in the process of finding a new Spanish translation agency in 2019, this article will help get you on a good productive path to finding your ideal partner.


When to Switch Certified Spanish Translation Agencies


If you are already in a working relationship with a certified Spanish translation agency and are reading this article, you are clearly looking for a better engagement with a company that offers higher quality work. So when should you make the switch?


Abandoning one multilingual translation company for another right out the gate may seem like a good move, but it comes with a number of risks that include leaving unfinished work on the table, to the withholding of data (whether intentional or unintentional). Rather than kick your current Spanish translation service provider to the curb, start by outsourcing smaller projects to a new certified Spanish Translation company, and get a good feel for their abilities, quality, communication, and team. If you like the way they work, give them some larger projects and then gradually transfer all ongoing larger tasks to your new provider. This way you build a relationship based on trust, and no work is lost.


Make Sure the Spanish Translation Agency Masters All Dialects


There are many types of spoken and written Spanish, each with their own dialects and expressions. Whether you require translation operational manuals for internal manufacturing protocols, or you are translating branded content on retail boxes for multiple Spanish-speaking markets, you need a certified Spanish translation company that can master any dialect, in any context.


When vetting new Spanish translation agencies, make sure they have native speakers from the target-audience locations, and that each carries all the necessary certifications to ensure their work is flawless. This also includes making sure the project manager is a master in your target Spanish dialect, and is well-versed in your industry and branded terminology, as well how the translation process applies to each project.


Spanish Translation Tools and Technology


The right CAT tools and software platforms allow Spanish translators  to complete tasks on budget, and in a significantly faster turnaround time. Tech tools also help eliminate human error. When vetting the best certified Spanish translation agencies, make sure they not only have the latest in Spanish translation software, but see to it their team has the right people in the right seats to integrate their technology with yours to further streamline communication and the process. The team should also be willing to work with your internal personnel, and have the creativity and ingenuity to use logic-driven strategies that call for technology pieces to complete growth-driven projects.
