Join Dennis Meyer for an in-depth discussion in this video Choosing a translator, part of Localization for Developers.
- Depending on the localization solution you use,…you might already have prescreened…translators available to you.…Even if that's an option though,…you may decide to go with someone else.…Finding freelance translators isn't very hard,…but choosing among them isn't very obvious.…How do you compare the options,…and what qualities are you looking for?…There are a number of places you can look,…but I'm just going to talk about proz.com,…since it demonstrates so many of the things…that you should think about and ask about…before hiring a translator.…
I'm going to come down here,…and I'm actually going to click this link that says…Search for professional translators & interpreters.…This will give us a few additional options.…For the Source language I'm going to choose English,…for Target language I'm going to choose Russian,…and for service type you can actually choose…among a number of different available services.…You can choose Translation,…or also very useful is Checking and editing,…I'm going to go with Translation.…
