Insurance and Risk Management
Translation of client presentation and pricing sheet
Rush translation, desktop publishing
15-slide presentation and 1 spreadsheet, about 2,500 words
2 business days
A major risk management and insurance provider (the Client) needed to provide their presentation material and product/plan pricing to their customer, a large Chinese real estate developer operating in the United States. The Client turned to Paragon to translate and format their PowerPoint and Excel spreadsheets on the excessively tight deadline they required.
A major part of the Client’s business is providing insurance and risk consulting services to international customers working in the United States. For this customer, a large Chinese real estate developer, the Client’s presentation included terminology from a variety of disciplines: construction, insurance, finance, and legal, and therefore needed a true expert for successful translation. In addition, the Client’s graphs, charts, and other images needed to match exactly in English and Chinese. The Client faced a deadline that meant there were only two days to spare for the translation and localization process.
Upon receipt of the Client’s source files, Paragon moved quickly to ensure the right team of Chinese linguists was in place—translators, editors, and proofreaders who would not be overwhelmed by the diverse types of technical jargon throughout the presentation’s text and pricing proposal’s rows in the spreadsheet. The team delivered translations ahead of schedule, which gave Paragon’s professional desktop publishers extra time to perfect the graphs and images in the PowerPoints, and to adjust the Chinese spreadsheet to exactly match the English source. After a final structural review by Paragon’s project manager to ensure a perfectly matching translation, the project was submitted to the client on-time for the presentation to their customer.
