About This Item


Full Description

The primary goal of Translation Contract - A Standards-based Model Solution is to improve the communication between translation vendors and translation buyers. Primarily a collection of customizable forms, this model solution will be useful for translators, project managers, and anyone else involved in planning, specifying, managing, and evaluating translation and localization projects. Based on the DIN 2345, ONORM D 1201, and the emerging ASTM F15.48 standards, among others, Translation Contract provides a practical answer to the challenge of structuring translation and localization projects through a comprehensive collection of work order forms. Includes a reference section listing more than 50 translation-related standards, definitions for the most common translation terms, and a full index.
