A request for proposal (RFP) is a solicitation made by an agency or company interested in procurement of a commodity, service or valuable asset, to potential suppliers to submit business proposals.

RFP translations are standard practice in many global industries and often involve much more than just language; there are many practical differences that must be taken into account. Items such as Legalities and regulatory frameworks, contract law, intellectual property rights, anti-piracy regulation and contractual requirements vary from country to country.

Localization is a critical step in the RFP translation process and its importance is often overlooked. Many opportunities present themselves during RFP translation and seek the support from key decision makers and involve in-country players from the start so that you can be as informed as possible about the local market and budget your time, money and resources accordingly.

Finally, design the RFP to handle translation; you will need to localize your image library as well as a terminology database. Plan for expansion and future requests, a document may expand up to 25% upon translation so design tables and graphs for bi-directional language and keep text separate from graphics.
