the professional translation market

Update 30/09/2019



The professional translation refers to the activity of rebuilding a text from a source language to an target language. Professional translation makes it possible to connect two languages, and often two cultures and periods. Translation is based on a few parameters such as context, grammar and fidelity to the original culture to make an original text understandable to a certain pool of readers to another pool different from the author's basic target. Translation is still mainly carried out by man, while automatic and intelligent translation tools are gradually appearing on the market

The main customer opportunities for professional translation are linked to the increase in books and novels to be translated in France into marketed production but also at the request of the business and government when it comes to publishing reports in multilingual versions to reach a diverse audience

On the market, against the leading professional translation giants, competition is intensifying, with the use of auto-entrepreneurs which provide lower quality work but in a shorter time and at a lower cost. Also, many companies are increasingly internalizing translation processes with a dedicated internal department, as is the case for consulting firms in France that publish multilingual reports. Finally, professional translation will have to adapt to technological developments and to artificial intelligence which could disrupt the market structure in the coming years.
