Subject:Foreign Language Translators From:"Barbara J. Philbrick" <burkbrick -at- AOL -dot- COM> Date:Tue, 3 May 1994 13:54:41 EDT
I have a friend whose company just went international. She needs to find good
foreign language translators (preferrably in the Cleveland, Ohio, area).
Some of the translators she has contacted bill themselves as "foreign
language typesetters," which scares her - she wants someone who can translate
technical material, not just run it through a program and make it look nice.
The information to be translated is primarily automative testing equipment.
She needs the information as soon as possible (they came to her and said,
"BTW, we're interviewing technical translators today - know anybody?"), and
any help (and hints) you can provide will be greatly appreciated.
