The world at present is going through an economic and financial turmoil, not experienced ever since the Great Depression of the 1930s. While nearly all the sectors are experiencing the consequences, some suffer more seriously when compared to others, depending on a range of factors such as capital and consumers. The translation sector is not an exception in this case. It is suffering from a decline in business like other sectors but on a positive front its fundamentals remain to be in a better position. There are a couple of good reasons for this.
Firstly, translation is actually a labour-based rather than a capital-based business. In order to keep basic processes going, translation agencies do not require much investment when compared to other economic sectors. They don’t need much assistance from banks and other financial service providers which means they don’t need to bear the additional costs of interests on bank loans. This provides them with a good ground over other business sectors to overcome such difficulties.
Secondly, translations are not luxury products. In most cases, translation services are business necessities that are vital for effective business communication. Though the western countries are suffering severely from the economic turmoil, there are some Asian countries which are booming with possibilities. A western manufacturer can export products to the Asian markets to increase sales. But he would definitely need assistance from a professional translation agency. In order to expand his business in the foreign market and stand amidst tough competition with local as well as other foreign brands already prevailing there, he needs to offer something different and make consumers understand the specialty of his products and services. This could easily only be achieved if a translation agency is hired to help him brand his products in the new market.
