Things to check before hiring a French, English or Arabic translator in Dubai

The need for professional translation services has been I constant increase across Dubai, Arabian Gulf and Arab World countries.   The economic boom which the petroleum producing states in Arabia have witnessed has made foreign trade more successful.  In addition, cities like Dubai, Kuwait, Abu Dhabi, Jeddah, Riyadh, Muscat, Bahrain and Doha have become hubs for international and regional trade and commerce activities.  Hence, the need for effective business communication has been behind the increase in demand for French, English and Arabic translation services and translators.  Like any other service, the client should consider a few central factors before opting for one service provider or another. 

The main two aspects which have to be considered in the choice of a professional French, English or Arabic translator in Dubai have to do with the quality of work and the professional conduct.  The professional work quality expected from a language services provider, translators included, is closely related, and largely reflected, in the qualifications and work experience.   Although standards of what makes a good translation output might differ from one country/ culture to another, what basically makes perfect and professional translation is accuracy, in the first place.  Language fluency, authenticity and attention to details are also very important. For the sake of measuring these qualities, it is wiser to adopt a quality analysis of factors involved in the choice.

First, make sure the French, English or Arabic translator is qualified to do the job.  Qualifications range from language and linguistics degrees to translation graduation and specific field academic studies associated with degrees in translation, or at least, translation training.  Academic degrees alone do not make expertise and professional output possible.  Accreditation is also important. Accredited professional translators are better qualified and capable of producing high quality work.  The accrediting body should itself have an international reputation so as to have an authority and acknowledgment among people in the translation profession.  Be careful with claims made about accreditation of TM and interpreting / interpretation without any proof to be verified.

Previous experience tells, not only about the French, English or Arabic translator’s ability to work, but also about their conduct and manners when dealing with clients.  Usually, try to verify with a globally renowned and important client about the work quality and professional conduct of the translator.  Apart from the professional quality required, translators should show respect for time frames given and perfect use of effective communication means and styles.   Being cooperative, for example, is plus in case more rectifications are needed or a few corrections are required.

The question of cost is also important. Whereas people usually go for the most economic offers, those who understand the profession should not allow costs and rates decide on whom to hire as French, English or Arabic translators.  The sour reality is that competition has made translators’ life more and more difficult.  The increasing number of the claimed translators and the lowering of rates intended by the intruders and those who are new to the profession is one major reason behind this lowering of rates.
