Traveling to India - Hire an Interpreter Before You Leave for Your Trip

How many of you have ever traveled to India and needed some translation services? This travel could be for business and/or pleasure. I personally have never traveled to India but I do have a friend who flies to India twice a year on business.

Did you know that in India there are many different spoken languages? You will find the Indian people speaking Arabic, Farsi, and English. With three different main languages (plus several other less spoken languages) you are most likely going to need an Indian translator interpreter at some point during your travel.

If you don't know where to find one you can quickly find several of them by conducting an online internet search. When hiring an agency and/or interpreter, we recommend that you look for one that is based out of New Delhi and one that has been in business for several years. We also recommend that if you are an American, that your interpreter be very fluent in English so that there is no misunderstanding between you and the person/company that you hire.

When looking around for the perfect company for your needs...ask them for a free quote and for some references from past clients. It is also a good idea to let them know up front what kind of documents you may need translated and approximately how many documents you have. Knowing this up front will help them to give you a more accurate quote when you request one.

Most of these types of companies can translate your travel documents before you leave the states and many of them can provide to you various translation services once you arrive in India. I don't know about you...but if I was traveling to India, I would definitely need a personal translator once I arrived!
