Finnish Translation Services
If you have Finnish clients, customers, or employees, you will need Finnish translation services in order to reach them in their own language. There are around 6 million speakers of Swedish worldwide, the majority of which live in Finland. Although many Finnish speakers have some facility with English, Web sites, software, and documentation should all be translated into Finnish for best results in Finland.
Finnish translation is just one part of a larger process known as Finnish globalization. Finnish globalization is the process of adapting your products (software, documentation, and Web sites) functionally, linguistically, and culturally for Finnish speakers worldwide.
Research by IDC has shown that customers are four times as likely to buy if Web site content is presented in their language. Finnish translation services for Web sites range from simple (such as a straight HTML-based Finnish Web site) to complex (such as a dynamic, database-driven Finnish web application). Your Web site translation company should have the capability to translate text from source files such as HTML/XML, applets, database exports, CGI scripts, Java scripts, graphic files, ASP files, or FLASH files.
Finnish software translation services, more appropriately called "localization" services, are needed to create an authentic Finnish software user experience. Online help, menu commands, and installation instructions should be fully translated into Finnish. Your software translation company should have the ability to deal with programming, scripting, and mark-up languages such as Java, VB and ASP, XML and ASP, C/C++, and Visual Basic.
Finnish document translation refers to the translation of printed materials such as books, user guides, promotional brochures, and financial information. Different industries generate different kinds of documents such as instruction manuals, packaging, and marketing materials, all of which must be linguistically and aesthetically consistent with the original. Common layout applications include QuarkXpress, FrameMaker, Word, and InDesign, while graphics are often created and edited in Illustrator or PhotoShop.
