In literally every survey that we have ever conducted among our clients from the pharmaceutical and medical devices industries, accurate terminology has always been singled out as the primary concern in translation for these sectors. In this article, we will take a closer look at the reasons for this and how the translation technologies can help us address this issue and ensure accuracy of terminology.
In our everyday work as Project Managers, we often tend to direct most of our attention to our end-product, i.e. a delivered translation. However, we should sometimes hit pause and consider how different clients influence our workflow and how we can adapt our processes accordingly.

That dreadful phrase bad translation has two distinct meanings – first, there is the obvious one, a text (or any other material) replete with errors in meaning, style, grammar and orthography and second, the more serious one, including delayed and cancelled product launches, loss of time, resources and energy and, most dreadful of them all, negative representation on a foreign market, which is also the price of a bad translation.
How to prevent it?
The global markets require content that anyone can understand, which is why website localization is necessary. It is not only cost-effective, but it can also be a time-saver, since processes are optimized and automatized. It can also be a way to connect with your customers and build strong relationships with them.

The job at Ciklopea gave me the opportunity to apply the knowledge I had acquired at the university, and to learn about certain aspects of the translating job that come to life only in the everyday work.
This is my first proper job and I am exceptionally satisfied and grateful that Ciklopea gave me this great opportunity to expand and apply the knowledge I had acquired at the university.
Over this period of over two years now, I have learned a lot, I am maturing professionally and I believe that I am advancing and perfecting every day, which is, after all is said and done, the most important thing.
I graduated in 2014 and continued my work at Ciklopea, so today, with almost 2 years of professional experience, I also have the opportunity to share my knowledge with the others, as a supervisor to the new translators.
