Translation is a process which requires a lot of caliber from the people who carry out translation work. As India is one of the developing countries still grooming talent regarding translation, the cost incurred is considerably high. The main reason attributed to the fact of higher cost is the lack of quality translators who can produce effective work on a consistent basis. However, India follows a stringent quality procedure to maintain the kind of premium quality expected from the business circles. Translation service providers in India never compromise with money as translation matters them the most. Delving still, there are some providers who are adept in customizing themselves to the precise translation standards by their employers such as translating the text on a word-to-word basis, which is the toughest job for any translator. However, it is never an issue in India as the society is thriving with multiple cultures.
There is a lot to be achieved and left desired in India as translation as an alternative employment for youth is still in a growing stage. In order to realize, translation on a full length basis, it might take many years. Owing to the same reason, the cost of translation is very high. Though multinational organizations are aware of this aspect, they are still willing to obtain services from India due to the quality of work produced. On the other hand, there are very few institutes which offer foreign language courses on a regular basis. Additionally, lack of timely support from the government has become a hindrance for both prospective learners and language trainers. However, the situation seems to be bright due to the changing international scenarios and India’s foray into global issues. Developed countries such as the U.S. foresee India as a strategic partner in maintaining relations on the international front.
The immediate alternative solution to curb the situation of higher costs is a near impossibility given the current situation. However, if the government takes effective steps in streamlining the importance of translation services, the costs could be brought down drastically. This paves way to the origin of talent and promises tremendous growth prospects for individuals who consider translation as a career.
