Have you ever tried to set up a request for proposal (RFP) for translation services? You’ve got to build the process and generate questions that satisfy procurement, marketing or other departments. Maybe you’ve assembled your questions only to find that they’re not helpful for translation vendor selection or are too long and too complex to execute. It can feel like wrestling with an unruly beast. In this session we will show how to set up an effective RFP procedure. Expert panelists will answer questions to guide you in setting up a solid RFP so that it is clear to the vendors, it meets your company’s expectation and ultimately helps you choose the right vendor.
