Document translation formatting

Formatting is the most important point, which you must keep in your mind while translating a document. The translated version should look alike the original one. If you do not pay attentions to the real formatting, your work might be discarded. If it has original formatting, the client will be able to know if every line has been translated or not.

Spelling mistake

Spelling is another important point, which most of the translators misspell. For example, candidate’s father or mother’s name, address etc.

So, pay attentions and check them properly. Most of the linguists are not able to translate names in target language with proper pronunciation.
