Government translation services for environmental projects
One of our biggest projects for the City of Boston has been offering procuring a professional translator to handle reports regarding environmental topics, like climate change. Language Connections had to make sure two parts of the project were handled well: ensuring the reports were translated into a reading level suitable for every member of the general public and supplying desktop publishing services so every map, diagram, and table looked just as flawless as the original.
The first challenge, making sure the material was suitable for all members of the general public, required two steps. First, we notified the translator of this need. Meeting a more accessible reading level is actually a very common part of providing government translation services. The second step was to check over the product delivered by the translator. We needed to proof it not only for accuracy, but to ensure the language wasn’t unreadable by the average citizen.
Our second challenge on this project was the desktop publishing section. When a company translates documents, they need to retain not only the textual meaning, but also the pictorial, graphic meanings. Language Connections needed to pull all the text to be translated from various graphs and diagrams. Once a translator rendered all this text, we used InDesign to add the text back into the various charts, maps, etc. Sometimes this process required a great deal of patience and finessing, as text can expand and contract depending on what language is being rendered. Once the text was added back to these complicated formats, we then needed to do an extra layer of quality assurance, checking to make sure all translations were added to the correct charts, graphs, etc.
Language Connections is pleased to be a trusted partner of the City of Boston, offering government translation services for important projects that serve the community. We take our work very seriously, because often it is nothing less than a cog in the machine of public safety and public service! Our role as a translation company is important in this process and we always approach it with the utmost attention to detail and perfection.
