Professional Japanese Translation: A robust communications structure facilitates fast turnaround


Clear communications is one of the most important determinant of translation turnaround.

English Japanese Translations - Quick & Fast Turnaround

This is the reason why a robust structure that facilitates seamless communication between translation project stakeholders is absolutely vital.

What are the perils of a poor communication structure in translation projects?

Take a look at this real world example of how an English Japanese translations project with a 14 day deliver requirement turned into a 6 month long slog. Essentially, regional branch managers from around the world were calling our Translation Service Company in Japan asking for specific revisions, which were then being over ridden by other regional managers, and then again by the corporate head office. This outcome was totally avoidable!

Creating a regime conducive to seamless project communication is pretty easy & straight forward:

  • Identify a primary point-of-contact between each stakeholder (i.e. client & translation firm), usually the project manager
  • Ensure a backup contact, in case of emergencies where the primary point-of-contact is not available

The primary point-of-contact will handle ALL communications between stakeholders, without exception. However, there will on rare occasions be situations where communications do unfortunately breakdown. In these situations, be prepared to immediately implement a:

  • Change Request Log (which can be as simple as a spreadsheet) detailing the who, what, why & when of changes requested.

Clear & succinct project communication ensures a quick Japanese translation turnaround -- Insist on a robust communications structure from your translation compant!
