TechCommNZ Webinar: Multilingual Roadmap - A guide to managing translations
Communicators in New Zealand are increasingly facing the challenge of providing and managing multilingual materials.
To help anyone considering translation of their content, two translation and localisation experts will share their experience and answer three common questions:
- Why should I translate my content?
- How do I avoid getting lost in translation?
- What can I do as a writer to assist the process?
This presentation will provide best practice recommendations and outline the various options to source translations, how to manage quality, tips on content creation and the technologies available to help (or hinder) the process.
After this session you will be able to better navigate the world of multilingual communication and avoid the traps of getting lost in translation.
