IMAG1525Provide approved text

We know this is not always easy – things change, often at the last minute and we will always strive to accomodate those changes. However, wherever possible, provide the finished, approved text for translation.

Changes to the source text made after translation may be harder to incorporate and there is more chance of errors creeping in. If you do, however, need to supply a later version, make sure different versions are clearly marked as such and use track changes if possible.

We can, of course, provide updates to existing translations but beware of taking small changes out of context – a small one word change in one language may mean a whole new sentence structure in another!
