Thinking about a career in translation? Read through these top tips from Web-Translations’ qualified and experienced translators. Guest post by Georgina Cornforth 1) Master your mother tongue According to Web-Translations’ linguists, the best way to start is by mastering your mother tongue as much as possible. Translations should have smooth, uniform and consistent usage of language, which is not possible without a good foundation. If you will be translating into English, bear in mind that the English language has over 170,000 words currently in use!Give your small business (and UK Government) an international boost
In 2012, George Osbourne revealed his aim to double UK exports by 2020 but unfortunately, things have not been going according to plan. According to the British Chamber of Commerce, exports increased by only 0.5% in 2012 and by 2.1% in 2013. This is thought to be down to businesses seeing branching out internationally as too large a risk. However, expanding your business overseas could be extremely beneficial: it’s all about choosing the right market for your product and going in with a well thought-out strategy.Domain name quiz – test your knowledge
If you’re planning on expanding your business internationally, purchasing a Country Code Top Level Domain (ccTLD – .de, .fr, etc.) could prove beneficial. Not only will a local domain give you a better chance of appearing in search results, but customers will trust your business more if it has the local domain name for their country at the end of the URL.
