HT Localization only works with carefully selected professional translators who have demonstrated translation expertise with top clients such as Apple, SAP, GE, etc.  All linguists are screened, tested and monitored to ensure that they meet the minimum requirements and service levels.  

Can’t I simply use a free online translation service?

The free online translation services are simply straight machine translations. In some cases, such as on social media platforms such as Facebook or Twitter, using a free translation service provides quick real time approximate translations that may or may not good enough to get the gist of what is said.  However, the risk is poor grammar, mistakes and errors in translation which can result in loss sales and legal problems. For important documents and business translations such as marketing materials or legal materials, and complex localization projects, we recommend using professional translation service providers, who have extensive experience in business translation project management, quality assurance, proofreading and review methodologies.  

Can’t I find cheaper translations services using freelancers?

Sure you can. For some projects, that might be the better option for your needs.  For example, if you have a personal document such as a resume or CV, or a non-profit community projects, using a freelancer that you know and trust might provide you with exactly what you need. However, if your business relies on translation to support its global expansion, full service translations including multiple language translations, proofreading, review and quality assurance is the way to go. You’d be better served by working with a full service localization company.  Just like there are many different car manufacturers out there, there’s a difference in service and quality levels, and that depends on your budget and project goals. It’s your business; you need to decide what level of quality, service & expertise is important for you.
