  Bengali Translation, Editing, Proofreading and DTP

Most of the translators claim that they are the best! But how can you know whether a translator is qualified or not?

In a Gmail chat, one of my clients wrote, "...and you are the only reason to still believe that there are professional Bengali translators. I have had 3 bad experiences with Bengali and I was about to give up on Bengali."  --Mr. A.K. from Gainesville, VA, USA. May 21, 2009.

Why it is important to find a qualified Bengali translator at the beginning?

Only a few qualified translators are working in the English>Bengali pair and the agency has no way to know the quality of the translation before delivering it to the client because they do not speak Bengali.

Karin knew that the quality of the translation was bad, because it was a Bengali into English translation. She sent me the translation for proofreading and I have to retranslate the document. At the end, she sent me the following mail:

On 6/8/06, Karin wrote:

Hi,
The other translator initially replied saying that "all translations have to be proofread anyway" and "the comments by the proofreader were very vague". Then I sent her the proofread [or re-translated!] text and the translator said that they agreed with all the changes and that they did not use the correct legal wording etc etc. So I am still paying them for their time, but will not use their services again, of course... At least now I know where to find a good Bengali translator in the future.

I wasn't aware that the translation was so wrong when I assigned the proofreading job to you. I knew the English wasn't very fluent, but I didn't think that there were so many mistakes. The text is really different and your translation makes much more sense in English...

Kind Regards,
Karin

This type of translation is not only waste of money, but also kills a lot of time. Picking a qualified translator at the beginning of a project is very important, but how can you find a qualified Bengali translator?

What my clients say about my translation?

Recently one of my clients offered me an editing job and I asked her that why she is offering me the editing job instead of the translation job. She replied, "I would normally like to use you as the translator but the client wants 2 rounds for this project, and as youre our most trusted Bengali resource Id rather you be the final word on the project."

I translated a huge training material for the operation of radiation detection instruments at a port of Bangladesh and after the training was completed in the USA, I received an email from my client saying, "I just received praises on your work from our client. Apparently the Bengali delegation that used the material was impressed by the quality of your translation. Good job!"

If you work with me in a single project, you would know why my clients are speaking so highly about me!
