Writing And Translating The Introduction

As one Chicago French Translation worker suggests, the introduction should answer all the following questions – or all those that apply to the situation:

o What situation are you trying to prevent or what problem seeking to fix?
o In general, what remedy or idea are you proposing?
o Why are you offering to make changes?
o What are the advantages or positive returns?
o What are your qualifications for this project

Right from the start, your purpose as a Houston Portuguese Translation worker that translates proposals should be to promote your client’s strategy, to persuade the audience that the project must be completed and that your client has the ability to do it. If your introduction is long-winded, evasive, or vague, your audience may ignore it entirely. Therefore, you should make it concise, specific, and clear.

In addition, the author of translator must spell out the problem, to make it absolutely clear to the audience and to show you understand it fully. Explain why the problem should be solved or the project undertaken. Identify any sources of data. In a research or sales proposal, state your qualifications for doing the job. If your plan has limitations, explain them. Finally, define the scope of your plan by enumerating the specific subsections to be discussed in the body section.
