Renewal Planning - Translation

Starting to think about planning for renewals, what to keep what to kill.

I guess the very first step is to validate that at least the name translates ok. Some langugaes are easier than others to confirm (Russian springs to mind as being nororiously difficult).

So I'm thinking about compiling a list of members who would be willing to confirm translations of names en masse.

There would be cash changing hands of course, and only those with language skills need apply (keen people with the latest copy of Systran on their PC are not what this is about)

This isn't just for me, no doubt most of us here will need some sort of assistance.

So, please post if:

a) you are willing to sell your services

or

b) you might be buying the services

or

c) you have any thoughts whatsoever as to how the financial incentive might work

Re: Renewal Planning - Translation

FYI- I have been using a few different translators in 3 different languages to check over my idns. Rates have been running $20 to $30 per hour, with a one hour minimum, then half hour increments. My guesstimate is that a good translator can run thru about 250 idns per hour if there aren't too many corrections.

I also think that when hiring native speakers, particularly "friends" from the forum, you have to understand that they can miss things on long lists, and may make a few mistakes. So if your a stickler, get a second opinion as well or hire one of the translation companies readily listed on a google search.
