It would be best if you could give the following issues some advance thought:

- To which area and to which category does the text
  belong (e.g. contract, business or environmental
  report, web presence, or study)?
- Will the text be used internally or will it be published?
- When do you need the translation on your desk?
- What file format does the original text have and in
  which format(s) do you require the translation?
