Receiving and implementing feedback are common practices within the translation industry: some people love it and some people hate it.
But when can this happen? Let's have a look at the possible scenarios:
As you can see, revised files can create a great number of challenges for translators, and PMs, on how to effectively and efficiently implement the final changes.
