Often times in business, you require your documents to be translated to the other language. Especially so, if you deal with countries where a different language is spoken than your country. Ever since the pace of globalization has increased, the world arena has become a smaller place than before.

1. Online Tools
With a surge in the number of people wanting to translate text from one language to another, many online tools have been developed that cater to this. The most popular ones among these are Google Translate, Bing Translator and Babylon. If the language you are translating to and from are popular enough, the languages would surely be there in these free online tools. However for more unconventional languages, you probably wouldn’t be able translate them online. Another problem is that although they are free, the translation isn’t very good and involves a number of errors.
2. Professional Services

Professionals that offer document translation services make sure they offer error free and correct translation, even of complex documents such as law and medical related documents that involve specific terminology of these subjects. Also, they cover almost all languages, which you wouldn’t otherwise be able to translate using online tools. If you operate a business that needs precise translation often and has oversees interests, it is in your best interest to go for a professional service rather than relying on free services and standing the risk of ruining the translation and having a bad impression on the your business clients or associates.
