      ... Dear Ahmad The question is too vague and open for it to give useful results. I would suggest offering a multiple choice, for a very specific kind of text.

        Dear Ahmad

        The question is too vague and open for it to give useful results.

        I would suggest offering a multiple choice, for a very specific kind
        of text.

        For example, you might ask if text length is to be respected, if the
        formatting can be changed, if the paragraphing can be changed, if
        modifications can be made to the author's glossaries, etc.

        Before sending a questionnaire, you should also tell the potential
        subjects what it is for.

        Sincerely

        Well, the question depends on the asker. Generally, I just comply with whatever the client wants, if reasonable. If not, I don t accept the project.

            If it is a very specific text, you have the right to ask for help with terminology and explenations of some parts of the text that you can not follow because you are not a specialist in the field that the text speaks about, and you have also the right to request some similar texts in both langages, to help you understand the text and to help you find the right terminology.

              Dear Ahmed,

              There are standards in some countries (Germany, Austria, Italy amongst
              others) and there is a European standard on its way (EN 15038). The USA has
              an ASTM standard on the stocks as well. In adition, I cannot imagine that
              any of the associations of professional translators (and interpreters for
              that matter) do not have a code of conduct and some kind of specification of
              professional work in written form.

              My advice would be to contact your national association of (professional)
              translators and seek their advice.

              Good luck with your search!
