According to Common Sense Advisory (CSA ), there are well over 20,000 translation companies (translation agencies) in the world. How do you know which translation company is most suited for your enterprise translation requirements? After all, they all claim the highest quality, fastest speed, and most competitive prices which are unsubstantiated and subjective. This is why identifying the best translations companies requires considerable time and effort, as well as industry know-how.
Many large companies send out translation Request for Proposals (RFPs ) complete with a long list of questions on translation quality, localization processes, translation technology & innovation, project management best practices, linguistic test samples, and so on. However, drafting such a comprehensive RFP requires deep industry expertise and a dedicated team to manage the process over a long period of time.
If your company is like most companies, your translation projects often have tight deadlines and you simply don’t have the resources nor the deep industry knowledge to properly complete the project without a plan already in place. Follow the simple battle-tested steps below to find the best translation companies you can depend on for long term partnerships so you are prepared when a translation need arises.
Like a number of online translation platforms, Stepes uses quantifiable metrics like real-time speed, instant quotes, and the ability to rank translators so that our customers can always rest assured their translation projects are in good hands.

Live Online Demonstration
Instead of accepting a translation vendor’s verbal claims on translation price, quality, and speed simply ask them to demo it live. Doing this you can check out the translation service first hand (similarly, you should never only take a car salesman’s word for it, you should always test drive a car before purchasing!) It’s one thing for a translation vendor to claim these, it’s an entirely different challenge to actually demonstrate those qualities live. If the translation company says they don’t have a live demo available, it usually says the following: a) they can’t do a translation project fast enough, b) their price is too high, or c) they don’t have the strength in translation technology to create a live online system. In either case, you should steer clear from translation vendors that are not able to meet the live demo challenge.
Continuous Translation Evaluation
Some translation companies will do anything (including hiring 3rd party translation vendors) in order to meet the requirements for translation pilots. You may get good results for the initial tests, but subsequent translation projects turn out to be anything but what you were hoping for. This is why you want to make sure the translation agencies you choose allow you to easily evaluate the performance of each project on an ongoing basis. You probably are realizing by now that you simply don’t have the bandwidth to be evaluating translation results for all your projects. After all, that’s the reason why your hire professional translation providers in the first place. The good news is that you can have a separate linguistic partner that systematically reviews selected samples. Also, the entire translation review process can be automated on your chosen vendor’s translation management system.
