When selecting a new translation supplier it's incredibly important that you assess the quality of their multilingual work in order to make an informed decision. Without ensuring quality in the beginning then you may put yourself at risk of receiving sub-par translations later down the line. Sample, or test, translations will enable your in-house or in-country teams to assess the quality of the supplier's work early on.
A small piece of text will be translated by a number of suitable professional translators, each with expertise in your field or industry, to allow your teams to identify which translators would be the perfect fit for your translation projects.
By approving a small team of translators per language you're ensuring that you select the translators that capture the essence of your brand in terms of style, tone of voice and terminology, resulting in consistency across all translation projects moving forward.
