  About the Author


The author of this website has used a so-called controlled language in order to write this text in the German language. Afterwards, a machine translation system has translated the German text into the English language. Finally, a human translator has corrected the translation mistakes of the machine translation software. The correction process required considerably less time than a traditional human translation process.

Translation Contract

Translators and translation customers must understand their roles and responsibilities before they begin a translation project.

  • Who are the readers of a text, and what is the text's function?

  • What is the desired translation quality level?

  • Which dictionaries should the translators use?

These questions are examples of specifications that belong in every translation contract.

"Translation Contract" is based on the most important standards for translation contracts (EN 15038, DIN 2345, ASTM F15.48 - draft).

This unique resource will help you ensure the success of your translation projects!
