I am looking forward to your request.
● How big is the translation? The number of words or lines helps me to assess the volume.
● By when do you need the translation?
● What kind of text needs to be translated? (e. g. an image brochure, a product information sheet or a sales contract)?
● What is the purpose of this text and who is the target audience?
● Which format does the source have (MS Word file, scanned PDF or other?) and what format will be required for the translation?
● Are there similar older translations, glossaries or other reference materials?
● Is there anything else I need to know (e. g. internal style guides, formatting restrictions, etc.)?
