Report The best way to get accurate translations in Translations (Theory & Practice) Posted September 13, 2014 Definitely get a human native speaker of the target language. Nothing else, not even a fluent foreigner, will work. It's going to cost you!There are so many examples of almost right translations out there to warn you.I had a female friend with reasonable English say to me "My husband won't sleep with me any more." She meant that he was sleeping on the couch while she was sick.Tony Blair was speaking to the French media in French, and trying to say that he found many of their prime minister's policies attractive. What he actually said was more like "I desire your prime minister in many positions." Close, but not quite right.If it needs to be right it needs to be a native speaker.
