What’s a translation agency doing at Chemspec Europe 2022?

Business without live events is possible, but it’s not much fun.

At the end of May, I’ll put on my smart clothes again, step into high heels and hop on a train to attend Chemspec Europe 2022 in Frankfurt. It’s been a while since my last face-to-face event and I’m looking forward to it (even if we’ll be chatting about SDSs and REACH!).

Life hasn’t stopped, especially in the chemical sector, in the last couple of years. During the last 12 months we translated over 1 million words of SDSs, SPCs and labels, not including other regulatory documents and sworn translations required for, say, a product registration. Most of these files were needed in all the official languages of the EU, which means that we delivered well over 20 million words of SDSs, SPCs and labels to our clients in a year.

This pretty much explains what I’ll be doing at Chemspec Europe 2022, one of the biggest chemical events of the year. Finally, I’m going to meet the people behind the email addresses: familiar faces and new ones alike. You can find the Eurideas Language Experts booth in the regulatory affairs section (Stand RS-J118), surrounded by some of our long-term partners like ReachLaw and Arkema, as well as more recent ones like Neogen Chemicals.

Come and say hello if you’re attending or get in touch at anita@eurideastranslation.com if we can assist you with translation services.

We know everything about chemical translations

Case studies related to chemicals

Chemicals is one of the main fields in which Eurideas specialises. We translate and edit chemical documents daily – during the last 3 years we have translated more than 5 million words for clients in the chemical sector from all over the world.

Through years of translating chemical texts we have learnt a lot about the challenges and concerns clients usually have. It must be stressful to ensure that safety data sheets, SPCs, labels and other documents are translated in several languages, at the highest quality, by a strict deadline.

We do this every day, and we are happy to share our expertise with you.
Read our collection of case studies to learn more about our working method:

Great expectations: 1 million words, 15 languages, 6 weeks >>>

What if you have lots of files into lots of languages, and you need help in planning the entire project? This is a real case study for The Nickel Institute.

Our solution for seemingly impossible translation deadlines – SPCs in the spotlight >>>

From English into 25 European languages in 5 days – submission deadlines of authorities are frightening but feasible with our work method.

Medical: when translation is a matter of life or death

We talk a lot about how to save translations costs and how to meet the seemingly impossible translation deadlines of authorities. However, there are certain fields where neither price nor turnaround time is more important than accuracy. With translations for the medical and pharmaceutical industry, whether they are intended for the health authorities, professionals or patients, there is no room for errors.

How to achieve this

  • Qualified translators with relevant medical, pharma, or bio-sciences background and experience: Eurideas has strict selection criteria and processes that enable us to work with the best translators in each field.
  • Extensive quality control: Each document is translated by a native speaker translator, checked by another translator, and then goes through a two-step quality check. This means the watchful eye of at least three separate persons.
  • Top-notch technology: Translation memory tools, terminology databases and glossaries are crucial for effective and consistent work, and there are plenty of other software solutions that allow us to provide additional services like multilingual typesetting or digitisation.

Typical documents we can help you with are labels, packaging, product information, manuals, patient brochures, summaries of product characteristics (SmPC), regulatory submission dossiers, toxicology reports, data sheets, instructions for use (IFUs), informed consent forms, clinical research, scientific papers, certificates, and veterinary documents.
Beyond standard translation, we also offer certified translation of these files.

Most of our medical projects are translations from English into some or all the official languages of the European Union, plus Icelandic and Norwegian, but we can cover a lot more languages: in 2021 we delivered translations to clients in 194 language pairs.

If this is something that sounds relevant or intriguing to you, feel free to reach out to me at anita@eurideastranslation.com for a quote or for further information.
The beginning of the year is always a good time to have a look around and try new translation partners. Check our Welcome Offer here.

Be prepared – 5 crucial business tasks we undertake at the beginning of the New Year

As the owner of a small business, the beginning of the year is always very busy. It’s not only that we need to check last year’s figures and results, but also there are several tasks we have to complete together with the project team in order to set the foundation for continued growth for the year ahead.
Here are some of the crucial tasks that need to be undertaken at Eurideas every January.

We check what’s trending
We sit down with the business development team and analyse last years’ assignments and try to make conclusions on possible trends. If we find something interesting or new, we carry out further research into it, and focus more on that field in the coming year.

We define company goals for the New Year
We define what we consider to be success this year and what key performance indicators the team must accomplish to achieve our goals. We also decide who is responsible for what and by when certain jobs need to be done.

We plan the annual budget
It’s mainly my task to forecast the revenue we should achieve in the New Year. I also draw up the operational budget, meaning how much we should spend on human resources, IT, marketing, etc.

We look for ways to optimise operations
As we’re growing every year, our operations and processes need to be adjusted continuously. The start of the year is a great time to sit down with the team and examine the processes with a fresh eye and optimise them if needed.

Establish infrastructure for growth
Based on previous experience, our scarcest resource is time. This year we will allocate more resources and focus on growth, besides delivering value. The infrastructure for this needs to be set up now.

If you have a similar to do list at the beginning of each year, and you have realised that one of your objectives is to enter new markets this year, you might also need translation services.
Instead of assigning the job to several freelance translators, you might consider optimising the work and select an experienced language services provider.

If you would like to save costs as well, I would say that it’s a must to work with one translation partner in the long term.

In 2022 we welcome new clients with a special offer, and we build a translation memory with all our partners in order to optimise costs and to ensure quality.

Spotlight on health translations

Actually the last two years have seemed like one long health awareness period. Our health is something we’ve started to look at differently. No wonder that health-related translations now represent a larger share of our projects than before.

October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month, November is Men’s Health Awareness Month, and you could go on with the list… actually the last two years have seemed like one long health awareness period. Our health is something we’ve started to look at differently.

No wonder that health-related translations now represent a larger share of our projects than before.
Beyond COVID-related documents, here are four examples of recent assignments:

  • This is the second year that we’ve translated various materials into 11 languages for the Personalised Medicine Awareness Month campaign of ECPC, the largest European non-profit cancer patients’ association.

  • We continuously assist Health Care Without Harm (HCWH) Europe, an international non-profit association, with translation and typesetting services to lead the global movement for environmentally-responsible health care. Measuring and reducing plastic in the healthcare sector, and sustainable food contact materials in the European healthcare system, are just two of the recently published papers we worked on.

  • Translations for the VAC-PACT project (Vaccination Confidence – Patients’ and Professionals’ Awareness, Communication and Trust) kept us busy this August and September. This EU-funded project is designed to improve vaccine uptake and confidence, and provides patients with chronic diseases, health professionals, and supporting communities, with tailored information in all the official languages of the European Union. Factsheets, quick guides, e-learning materials, videos, and the project website are all translated and published in local languages.

  • The Health Policy Partnership, a specialist health policy research organisation, has been working with us since mid-2020. As a result of our cooperation, a policy toolkit and a clinical toolkit on fragility fractures, a handbook on heart failure care, and a leaflet on heart valve disease, have all been translated into several languages. Beyond translation, we also took care of the layouting of these informative publications in InDesign.

If you have similar translation or multilingual typesetting needs, feel free to contact us.
We are always happy to welcome new clients and interesting projects – not only in the health field!

Questions I heard at ABIM 2021 Basel – Here are the answers

It`s always very useful for me to attend industry-related conferences, not only to meet business partners in person, but also to learn about the regulatory requirements and relevant updates that affect the industry.

Translation needs and challenges of the biocontrol sector

Translation needs and challenges of the biocontrol sector

It`s always very useful for me to attend industry-related conferences, not only to meet existing and potential business partners in person, but also to learn about the regulatory requirements and relevant updates that affect the industry.

Recently I was in Basel at ABIM2021, the Annual Biocontrol Industry Meeting. The agenda and the set-up of the event offered a great opportunity for networking and I could talk to many participants about their translation needs and challenges. I’ve made a short summary about the three most common concerns I heard from companies and the possible solutions we offer.

  1. Quality issues: This was the number one concern I heard. My overall impression was that companies are quite reluctant to outsource their translation tasks due to their bad experience with translation agencies. However, in many cases it’s not possible to do this task inhouse, so they are trying out different language service suppliers.

    Our solution: With a solid client base of 700 companies from the chemical industry and with more than 5 million translated words in the last two years, we make sure that the translations that we do comply with EU and international regulatory requirements.

  2. Short deadlines: The final versions of SPCs need to be translated within five working days. In the case of 24 languages this is almost mission impossible and most translation agencies can’t cope with this task. The issue is the same in the case of registration dossiers.

    Our solution: Over the years we have developed a method that makes it possible to deliver translations of the highest quality into 24 languages, regardless of the length of the document. We have a huge translator pool specialised in chemicals and regulatory affairs. In addition, we can generate the translations in .xml format, so our partners can also save time and they don’t need to upload the language versions manually.

  3. High costs: Companies spend huge amounts on chemical translations, and they may even often have to retranslate the same documents due to quality issues.

    Our solution: We try to motivate our partners to work with us in the long term. We build a translation memory for every partner and give a 60-80% discount on the repetitions and TM matches. This way not only will the translations be cheaper as time goes on but also the quality will be more consistent.

What do you gain from having a steady translation partner?

In 2020, 75 new companies decided to start working with us. Chemical companies, regulatory affairs and health policy consultancies, United Nations agencies, European associations, international NGOs and several other companies.
Some of them just popped up, ordered, received the translations, paid the bill and said goodbye, while others have become regular clients.

Why does it benefit you to have one established translation partner, instead of commissioning translation services from different providers each time?

Right from the first project, we draw our client’s attention to the importance of context and background information. We request any special instructions or background documents that the client might like to share with us. If, rather than receiving a single translatable document, we also have access to previous translations, instructions for special terminology to use or a website to consult, the results will be considerably closer to the client’s expectations. These background materials help the translation team to get to know the client’s work and product range better.
It is sufficient to let us know your requirements in terms of format, style or terminology just once, sparing you the trouble of repeating them next time.

A dedicated translation team, consisting of a project manager, one or several translators and one or several proofreaders, is at your service. The team is familiar with your previous translations, requirements and terminology, and our quality assurance experts make sure that you always receive translations of the highest quality.

The more you work with a translation partner, the richer your Translation Memory becomes. We not only store your translations in a Translation Memory, but also reuse them, making your projects cost-effective and your texts consistent. If you work with repetitive texts such as Safety Data Sheets, SPCs, exposure scenarios, labels, annual reports, contracts or legal documents, this is a crucial factor to consider.

It is beneficial to have a tried-and-tested service provider when the authorities suddenly request that you submit a 34,000-word chemical document in Irish, in 5 business days (that is a real-life example that occurred in April 2021). Specific fields, less common languages and short turnaround times will not pose a problem for a translation agency that works with a large pool of translators.

We do much more than just translations. You may have come across us because you needed documents to be translated, but soon you will discover that we can also help typeset your multilingual publications in InDesign – saving you the need to search for a separate graphic designer who can handle Chinese characters or Arabic layout.
You might ask us to translate an agenda and presentations for a meeting and then realise that we can assist you with simultaneous interpreting via ZOOM at the same meeting. You can easily meet several needs with one translation partner if you choose that partner well.

We strive for long-term relationships with our partners and usually have special offers for our new clients. If you place your first order with us before the end of June, we will give you a 7% special discount on all your projects up to the end of summer. That means you have plenty of opportunities to make the most of our services and enjoy a relaxed summer!

If you are looking for a steady translation partner, feel free to contact us via our in-website-form or at translation@eurideastranslation.com and our colleagues will be happy to assist you.

“This is where we can help!”-webinars on how to host a Zoom event with simultaneous interpretation confidently

We could all talk for hours about the challenges we’ve faced since the pandemic struck in 2020. However, new opportunities have also opened up, so why not focus on them instead? Online or remote simultaneous interpretation is one of the good things that have come into our lives.

In the old days interpretation meant that you met the interpreters in person; they were present at the event, working from a booth or sitting next to you and whispering into your ear, depending on what type of interpretation you required.
Beside the numerous benefits of such personal meetings and onsite events, simultaneous interpretation used to impose a huge financial burden on the organiser company due to the high cost of technical equipment (booths, headsets, microphones), the travel and accommodation cost of speakers and interpreters, catering, room rental, and many other fees.

Under the present circumstances we’re compelled to meet virtually.
Is it better than a face-to-face event? No.
Can you do it in a professional way? Yes.
Can you save money on your events with interpretation? Definitely.

With online interpretation you not only save on travel (both time and expense), but online platforms enabling simultaneous interpretation are also available at a significantly lower cost than technical equipment for a traditional event.
On the other hand, you’re on your own here, you have no technician to help you, and you will need someone at your organisation to learn how to host online events with simultaneous interpretation.

We’ve noticed that our clients are not comfortable in this situation. Smaller organisations have no dedicated staff to deal with the technical aspects of online meetings, so the Office Manager or someone from the Communications Department need to learn these new skills. The majority of these meetings are held on the ZOOM Meetings platform, which we’re familiar with, so we thought “This is where we can help!”, and organised a series of webinars for our partners.

Initially we planned two webinars – and in the end we held four due to high demand. During this webinar we discussed what type of licence you need to host a ZOOM event with simultaneous interpretation, what the technical requirements are, and what settings you need to pay attention to.
Through a simulated event the participants could experience what it’s like to be in the role of an interpreter, how audio channels work, and why relay interpretation is still a challenge in ZOOM Meetings.

We have compiled a guidebook and collected tips and tricks that could be useful for our partners when they organise online simultaneous interpreting in ZOOM Meetings. To those wishing to practise, we provided a licence for 24 hours so they had a chance to practise what we had covered in the webinar.

The feedback we received was amazing! New and long-term partners alike were grateful for the initiative and confirmed that the knowledge we had shared would be invaluable for their work in the future.

“Thank you so much for this very clear and useful presentation!” (Independent Retail Europe)
“Many thanks for an excellent webinar.” (Teagasc Ashtown Food Research Centre)

Special thanks to Kata Miklós (DTP and IT Manager) for introducing the webinar participants to the essentials of ZOOM interpretation, to our marketing communications manager, Csilla Dömötör, for the idea of the webinar, and to all our partners attending and contributing with great questions.

When you’re planning an online event with interpreters on Zoom, but you’ve never done it before and find it too challenging, feel free to contact our project managers.

Our interpreters have experience in remote simultaneous interpreting (RSI), so they can support all your online meetings and conferences in more than 50 languages. They are familiar with the most common online platforms that are used for online events (not only with Zoom but also with others, like MS Teams). You can find more details about our interpretation services here.

If you are a new client, we are pleased to offer a 7% discount on all interpretation and translation services until 30 April. Click and check the details of our SPRING2021 special offer here.  

Villa Rossa: A Hidden Multicultural Beach Paradise

There is a small, beautiful village in Greece called Parga, a meeting point for sun and beach lovers from all over the world. Walking the narrow cobblestone alleys or climbing the steps up to the Venetian castle is a multicultural experience with a wealth of languages being spoken as holidaymakers take snapshots of the dreamy coastline.  The center of this multicultural buzz is Villa Rossa Area, a boutique beach resort.

I had the opportunity to spend a few days at this beautiful place last year and I was really astonished by the high quality and friendliness of this hotel and its people. An additional incentive, in a year when travel remains a challenge, is that Parga and the surrounding area have, according to EU figures, remained the ‘greenest’ – meaning covid-free- part of Europe.

Here are some more details:
Standing on a beautiful sandy beach since the early 1900s and offering undisturbed sea views of crystal-clear blue waters, the historic Villa Rossa Area Boutique Beach Resort, can be an idyllic spot for meeting travelers and tourists from all over the world.
It is also a great starting point for diving, snorkeling and Stand Up Paddle adventures.

The converted landmark seafront estate is symbol of multi-culturalism itself: it was originally built by a French architect in 1903 and combines old Greek world’s charm with modern comfort, and tailor made eco-sensitive design. Using many of the original materials, furniture and lights and masterfully blended with the Residence’s high ceilings, large French windows and undisturbed sea views the Villa Rossa Area is a one-of-a-kind Ionian Dream.
The must-visit landmark villa has starred in international films and is home to several CNN productions.
The Villa Rossa Area offers a historic journey to its origins through an innovative digital interactive museum accessible to both guests and virtual visitors.

The award-winning farm-to-table restaurant hosts al fresco group or private dining experiences in select locations within the grounds, while the private sandy beach area provides direct sea access and docking. The hotel is also reachable by car.

! A secret tip for our readers: The seafront seven-bedroom villa, which boasts a private hill with unbeatable sea views and a century-old olive grove, can also be rented in its entirety.

About Parga:
Set in the idyllic region of Epirus on the western coast of mainland Greece, the exceptional natural beauty of the heart-shaped bay of Parga provides an ideal setting for those seeking a multilingual and multicultural experience… and a stunning coastline.

Inhabited since antiquity, Parga has featured on the sea routes of pirates, explorers from different countries, shipping tycoons and Hollywood legends cruising the Ionian. Aristotle Onassis famously fell in love with beautiful Parga prior to settling for the nearby island of Skorpios. The delightful fishing village nestled in the shadow of the Venetian castle looks out to an iconic islet and mesmerizing bay adorned with majestic sea rocks – a sea lover’s paradise waiting to be explored.

Do you speak “agro”?

Providing translation services for a complex sector like agriculture might be tricky and difficult for agencies without specialised translators and proper terminology databases. Before joining the language services industry, for many years I had worked for agricultural companies.

Challenges of translation in agriculture and in agro-industry

Providing translation services for a complex sector like agriculture might be tricky and difficult for agencies without specialised translators and proper terminology databases. Before joining the language services industry, for many years I had worked for agricultural companies. Recently I’ve contacted my old colleagues and managers to get to know more about their personal experiences about translation and interpretation services: what challenges they have to face and what expectations they have in terms of agro-translations.
Here is a summary of what I have learned about their insights, needs and expectations:

Translating agriculture-related texts is not only about perfect language knowledge, it requires complex knowledge of different fields

“We have to comply with all legal and registration standards – follow strict timelines, use digital forms in different file formats in different languages.”
EMEA registration manager of a crop protection company

“Mutual recognition, REACH, ECHA, DG SANCO (DG SANTE), BVL, CTGB, ANSES, bio-dossiers, ANNEX1, trial reports, SDS, label, SPC. I’m responsible for 23 countries… this means almost two dozen languages. Give me someone who can simplify my work.”
Registration and field trial coordinator, EMEA

Authorisation documents for placing products on the market and using them, product labels, safety data sheets, product leaflets, or online product databases, etc. should follow a common jargon that complies with all the rules and should follow the local professional vocabulary…when the translation of these docs are split between different translation agencies, it usually ends up in ‘word-chaos’.”
Product manager for field crop pesticides

Translating agricultural-related documents encompasses a specialised language combining biology, chemicals, or life sciences, as well as the registration information needed for trading in different countries, and legislation knowledge required for the contracts, statements and permits necessary to move products to market. Materials are provided in different file formats and are handed-in/provided on different platforms.

Local translators specialised in agriculture – is it a myth?

“It’s crucial to choose competent interpreters when you organise an international conference or multilingual field events in the agriculture industry. I wish I could work with a specialised language service agency that can provide us with translation experts for all EMEA languages…Native agro translation professionals wanted. “
Regional PR and Event manager at an market-leading agro-machinery company

“If our promotional texts in brochures or our websites uses the wrong local terminology, the farmers think we don’t understand the market and their needs…we make them laugh instead of make them believe our messages and buy.”
Communication expert at a seed breeding company

Field crops and horticulture, animal nutrition, fertilisers and pesticides production, pest control, chemical or biological crop protection, seed and plant breeding – so many fields, so many special terms. Translators or interpreters should have the know-how in each particular field and they have to be experts in the terminology of the sector as there is no room for translation error.

Some of my former colleagues have highlighted that long-term cooperation with a specialised translation partner allows them to build a terminology database for technical jargon for processes, weeds, diseases, species, machine parts, and accessories, – it’s a huge help. When they can find a confident interpreter for a language pair, they call him/her regularly for onsite or online meetings or events.

In global or regional positions the key challenge is to find a trustworthy and professional service provider with multilingual solutions – it’s a lot easier to find an agro-translation expert for traditional language pairs like English-German, or English-French, than someone (a native speaker!) who translates from Croatian to Spanish, or Polish to Chinese.

Translation or adaptation?

Product presentations, landing pages or brand videos are usually created in English by our global marketing team. The local versions (text translations, subtitles, voiceovers) are passed to global advertising agencies…when I get the translated version for a final check I usually have to re-translate every fifth sentence because end-users might misunderstand the messages due to the wrong expressions or non-agro-related wording.”
Marketing coordinator at a fertiliser distribution company

In the case of sales or marketing texts, translation may not be the right service. Messages need to be adapted not only to the language but also to the social needs of local customers. Cultural context, local agro traditions and practices and associations can be the key to local business success.

When it comes to translation in the agricultural sector, it’s best to surround yourself with specialists. Working with a specialised agency means that you do not need to find one single translator who knows all these fields like the back of his or her hand. You can have your pool of local translators with language experts in each field and for all target languages. Long-term cooperation with the right translation partner allows you to build a terminology database to make your communication more consistent, whether it is translated documents or interpretation at an online event.

Maybe you have your regular translator for English-to-German label translations. But what about the remaining 22 languages of the European Union? What if it’s a sales brochure, and requires layout work as well? And how about less common language pairs like Croatian-to-Spanish or Polish-to-Chinese? Challenges for you, regular business for us… A professional translation agency with many satisfied partners from the agro-sector can make your daily work easier and can contribute to your business success.

Finding one agency to cover all the countries your organisation operates in is not a myth! 😊 Feel free to contact us via our website form or at translation@eurideastranslation.com and our colleagues will be happy to assist you.
