Summary:Analysis of volume counting methods (words, pages, hours, etc.) for new translation projects to minimize budgeting and planning risks.
Basing translation project quotations or schedules on an incorrect number of units can lead to serious financial consequences or the loss of a client if it results in a major delivery delay. Using counting tools unquestioningly can also jeopardize some translation projects and increase project stakeholders’ stress levels. The goal of this webinar is to make project participants aware of potential risks when counting work units. We will review all the unit types (and subtypes) to consider when setting up the management and production steps of a translation project.
