Article Abstract

Language barriers and communication delays can disrupt a company's plans to survive and thrive in a global economy. The pursuit of quality also depends on bridging the communication gap. Without communication there can be no bridge from quality theory to quality practice. If there is non-English communication within the organization's supply chain, in-house operations, or distribution channel, select a translating service with which to partner and start at the beginning when documents are first being written. Companies that take language issues head-on will win in the future. Sidebar articles outline ways to find quality in your next translation project and describe the services offered by Choice Translating Inc.
