Some compelling facts

A good translation starts with a high-quality source text. The quality of the source text largely determines the quality of the translation. This quality concerns both the contents and form-related aspects of the text. The content should include easy-to-understand sentences and the use of uniform terminology (throughout the entire corporate cycle), from R&D to marketing and sales.
