Caveat: Before translating anything into a foreign language, contact your business partner and/or your language service provider to find out precisely what language is needed. Let me give you an example. As a Ukraine-based translator, I was contacted by a company that requested an English into Ukrainian translation of an operating manual for equipment supplied to a plant located in Southern Ukraine. Despite the fact that Ukrainian is an official language in Ukraine, I have recommended translating the operating manual into Russian because Russian is a predominant language in southern regions of Ukraine.
