Principle 3: Delegation
Delegation is what allows your LSP to do their job without unnecessary interference. The LSP works in a field outside your area of expertise, so in a context of complementarity, all parties have to respect the others’ expertise to work together as productively as possible and eliminate incompatibilities and redundancies. Here are some tips on how to delegate work efficiently and reasons why it helps you.
Appoint ambassadors to get your entire organization on board
To make sure that your whole organization has confidence in your LSP and makes use of its services, why not appoint a few of your more influential managers who already buy in to act as ambassadors? They can work with your translation requesters to promote the LSP’s services to other colleagues and support adherence to the partnership terms. With your entire team dealing with the same LSP, you will also maximize translation and terminology consistency and avoid repeat translations of recurring content.
Accurate estimates mean peace of mind
Are you looking for the best language solutions without toppling your budget? Instead of struggling to define your LSP’s mandate without a full grasp of the challenges involved, simply explain to your LSP the details of your requests and get them to evaluate each of your projects individually. Not only will this save you a great deal of time, it will allow your LSP to properly assess and manage their work. You will receive a cost-effective quote tailored to your needs, and your projects will be carried out faster and delivered within optimal timelines.
Speed and security
Leave it to your LSP
Are you struggling to re-read and re-work every translation delivered to you? Instead of making decisions and changes yourself, simply note down your questions and submit them to your LSP, who can make any necessary corrections. This will save you a lot of time and stress over extra work, and prevent errors or changes that don’t align with your organization’s communications standards. If your LSP made some questionable choices, this is your opportunity to help them understand your standards and preferences and adjust their approach. What’s more, by consulting your LSP, you will hone your language skills and improve your managerial and communication abilities.
