Translation is a growing industry with new translation agencies constantly arriving on the scene. Each translation agency is different with its own language and technology strengths. For example, a translation agency may or may not offer Greek translation, depending on its business model. Even Greek translation agencies differ from one another, with some choosing to supplement Greek translation services with Greek internationalization, localization, desktop publishing, testing, and globalization consulting services.Greek Translation
Greek translation agencies provide translations for a wide spectrum of industries, including finance, life sciences, legal, pharmaceutical, telecommunications, information technology, and more. Many Greek translation companies provide translation services for three basic media: software and associated components, Web sites, and documentation.
Greek Internationalization (I18n) is the process of enabling back-end technologies to function or support Greek.
Localization deals primarily with the front-end or linguistic and cosmetic aspects of a software application or Web site, including locale-specific content, cultural correctness, translations, and design. Greek translation agencies can adapt a product for Greece by localizing it specifically for those areas.
Greek Desktop Publishing
Greek document translation refers to the translation of printed materials such as user guides, medical inserts, financial information, and more. Greek translation agencies that provide this service are also likely to provide Greek desktop publishing, which involves maintaining the formatting specifications of the source documents.
In order to ensure your localized Greek Web site or software application is fully functional and completely adapted to target users, a Greek translation agency must use experienced Greek testers and follow a thorough test plan.
Greek Globalization Consulting Services
Some Greek translation agencies choose to offer globalization consulting services, which provide consultation and education in areas such as site promotion, target markets analysis, cultural correctness analysis, and more.
