If you have Czech clients, customers, or employees, you will need Czech translation services in order to reach them in their own language. There are over 12 million speakers of Czech in the Czech Republic. Although many Czech speakers have some facility with English, Web sites, software, and documentation should all be translated into Czech for best results in the Czech Republic.
Czech translation is just one part of a larger process known as Czech globalization. Czech globalization is the process of adapting your products (software, documentation, and websites) functionally, linguistically, and culturally for Czech speakers worldwide.
Research by IDC has shown that customers are four times as likely to buy if website content is presented in their language. Czech translation services for websites range from simple (such as a straight HTML-based Czech website) to complex (such as a dynamic, database-driven Czech web application). Your website 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.
Czech software translation services, more appropriately called “localization” services, are needed to create an authentic Czech software user experience. Online help, menu commands, and installation instructions should be fully translated into Czech. 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.
Czech 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.
