English to South Korean user manual translation

A client recently approached Tomedes regarding the translation of his user manual from English to South Korean. He had attempted to translate the document himself by using machine translation, but the results were extremely poor quality. As such, he was looking for a professional human translation service to carry out the work to a high standard. We were delighted to be able to help.
User manual translation is a detailed task that requires thorough concentration from the translator. User manuals are designed to provide essential information regarding a product. If that information is incorrect, it can result in safety concerns, reputational damage and even legal action for the product’s manufacturer. That’s why machine translation should never be used for this type of work!
For this client’s Korean translation, we turned to our leading technical Korean translator. Based in Incheon, his keen eye for detail and outstanding language skills make him a valuable part of our network of professional translators. We always seek to use native speakers of the target language when it comes to our translations. Experience has shown that this results in a superior quality translation.
Translation cost was an important factor in this job. The client had a limited budget, hence his having tried to make do with machine translation initially. One of the reasons that he had been so pleased to engage Tomedes to undertake his translation was that he had been able to obtain an instant quote by using our website. This meant that he knew from the outset what the translation price would be, allowing him to budget for the work accordingly.
With his translation completed within budget and a little ahead of schedule, the client was a very happy customer indeed. He has pledged to avoid machine translation in future and stick with the professionals!
