Translators in Malaysia

It’s Beautiful but What does it Mean?

In the age of Google Translate some would think that finding the right translator might be less of a concern for business people.  The Malaysia Global Business Forum over the years has dealt with delegations from all over the world and seen first-hand what a difference a good translator can do and what happens when communication becomes strained because of “lost in translation” moments.

Online translation might work when exchanging emails, to get a drift of what the other person is trying to communicate but when it comes to documents, contracts, certifications and any official letters, a translator needs to deal with them.

For Malaysian business people when traveling to a country where English is not the first language a translator can be your best ally, many have local knowledge of business practices and social protocols which can go a long way when it comes to communicating beyond just words.

What should you look for when finding a good translator:

1. Look for experienced and qualified professional translator (some translators specify in certain industries)
2. Is the translator a native speaker or near native speaker
3. Make sure the company has a privacy policy and can sign a Non-Disclosure Agreement (NDA)
4. And find a translator that fits your budget

Moving forward the Malaysia Global Business Forum will continue to assist the international business community come together and do business.  Contact us is you need a translator, we will recommend one of our panel translators and let us know what we can do to assist during your next business trip to Malaysia.
