In the United States, Memorial Day is this weekend and, for most Americans, it signals the beginning of summer and vacation season.
While Americans relish their summer road trips and weekends at the beach, it is a well known fact that Europeans take more frequent and longer vacations. This can have a direct impact on European language translation projects.
Translation work still gets done, of course, but advance planning is more important than ever in June, July and August. Even preliminary information about timelines, languages and project specifications can help translation agencies schedule time with linguists in advance, preventing delays later.
Keep this in mind in the next few months and have a great summer!
