The Need For Translators and Interpreters in Building A Global Business.

The global business world hinges on the skills of translators(written) and interpreters(oral) to convey their products and services from one language to another and to communicate effectively in meetings across the globe. Having translators and interpreters in the business world promote cross-cultural communication and bonding as they convert written and oral or verbal languages to the target language.

Translators and interpreters play a vital part in some sectors.

  • Medicals

Medically, interpreters aid communication between the hospital management and patients while translators help translate patient journals and hospital information brochures to patients in their languages. Interpreters and translators in this field would possess vast knowledge of medical terminologies and a cultural understanding of how well to relay information.

  • Localization

Localization aims at making a product or service adaptable in the country where it is being marketed like its manufacturing is originally there. The translator will possess a high degree of knowledge about the local users of such products.

  • Specialized businesses

In specialized businesses, the interpreter or translator is skilled in a particular field and possesses a vast knowledge of various occurrences, terminologies, patterns and growth of the business across the globe, current events and trends obtainable in such areas. E.g., the technological, financial and marketing fields.

In the financial field, for example, there is a need for translating monetary statements, regulatory reports, money value amongst others, all in the target language and efficiently.

  • Conferences

In global conferences like World Bank conferences where participators are from various countries, interpreters are required. They are frequently used as mediators for international businesses thriving on multiple parts of the world.

Such interpreters often time can interpret at least two passive languages to one active language — for example, German and French to the English language. Translators are also needed in the translation of documents. A good document translator is a priced asset especially when it involves translation of Sukhumvit documents(รับแปลเอกสาร สุขุมวิท which is the term in Thai)
