Are you looking for a translation software solution to translate your website, but you are uncertain about which one is the best? This blog post might be for you.
We have compiled a list of suggestions about the elements and qualities to watch out for in a translations software.
1. User-friendly interface.
It’s strongly advised to choose a translation software that provides a user-friendly and easy-to-navigate interface to create projects, add new languages or edit translations.
2. Ensure you can invite other people.
For example, you may want to work with external translation agencies to ensure a consistently high level of translation quality.
3. Quality check: Check the accuracy of the machine translations
Machine translation saves indeed time, but only when they are accurate. Use translation software that uses advanced machine learning and reliable automatic translations.
4. Make sure you can search for translated content
Ideally, the translation software should provide a way to search for translated content on a specific page on the website or the whole website.
5. Check you can manually edit translations
The software should offer an initial automatic machine translation and provide the possibility to review and edit all translations.
6. Supported languages
You might want to check whether the languages you need for your multilingual website are supported by the translation software.
7. Nice to have: Customisable language switcher
Make sure the translation software provides an easy-to-configure and customisable language switcher so you can tailor it to your needs.
8. Affordable cost
Very important to compare different plans and choose the one that you need and that you can afford.
