Translation Isn't Blind E6

Internal Allies

Establishing allies across different functions unlocks your ability to align translation metrics to the metrics that matter most to others in the business.

Establishing Benchmarks

Recognizing where you are, and actually writing down where you want to go is an essential component of growth. By documenting your benchmarks and goals, you can show how far you’ve come.

Talking with Managers

Managers are focused on team goals and company mandates. So, align your talk track and message with their goals. If you focus on the big picture, the business value of language translation will reveal itself quickly.

Is translation blind? It doesn't have to be but, for so many, translation is indeed blind.

“Translation” lives in different places from one company to the next. Sometimes it’s managed by localization teams, and other times it’s managed by the product team. No matter how your organization decides who owns translation, it’s important that you reveal to your manager how and why translation adds value to the business - how translation isn’t blind.
