10-point checklist for delivering excellent German to English translations!
If you're translating professionally - rather than as a student (or for fun!) - then you’ll know that your translation involves much more than simply turning German to English.
Let's call it the logistics process – i.e. establishing the framework conditions that will ensure the translation project itself goes off without a hitch.
Never assume everyone is automatically on the same page, make sure the details are spelled out in advance, and avoid surprises. This is the secret to a happy client, good German to English translation, and hopefully repeat business. So refer to this checklist before you start your next German translation!
This German to English translation checklist has served me well over the years – I hope it'll help you too!
