EN-15038:2006 Standard

EN-15038:2006 is a specific European standard for translation services which ‘covers the core translation process and all other related aspects involved in providing the service, including quality assurance and traceability.

According to EN-15038:2006 , One of the principal requirements of a certified translation service provider is to use professional translators who translate exclusively into their mother tongue. All translations must also be proofread by a second professional translator to ensure a first-class result at all times.

Chinese->English or Other Languages

If you want to translate Chinese into English or Chinese into other languages. Would you use the native translators of the target languages?

It is commonly believed that translators are better at translating into their native language than into a second language. The underlying reason for this assumption is that translators have a more profound linguistic and cultural background of their mother tongue than of a second language which they have to learn in order to be well-versed translators.

Rick don’t believe this.


Native Speaker Complex

Translation is understanding first of all the basic ideas of the original, searching for the precise meaning of the source, and then providing an appropriate rendering of this precision into the target language.

Translation requires a multiplicity of skills – reading and research, computers and concentration, among others, and most of these have nothing at all do do with the ‘native language’ factor.


Moment of Truth

Although there are many people learning Chinese, those who are capable of translating Chinese into their respective native languages could be rarely found in the market.

If a translation is good, the so-called ‘native language’, or ‘mother tongue’ or however one wishes to express it, makes not the slightest difference.

In real practices, most native speakers who translate Chinese into their own languages could not understand 100% of the source text. the missing essence of source will lead to a translation failure definitely.
