Where You Will Want Back Translation

Back translation is used when the translation must match the original with the least amount of interpretation. A translator often needs to make choices about how to translate words or phrases, and while this interpretation is often valuable, it is not in these cases.

If you are in a highly regulated business, such as legal, healthcare, financial services, insurance, or engineering, and if it is critical to maintain very specific terminology between translations, or if there is a reason why you need the translation to have extreme fidelity to the original then back translation is a tool used to mitigate your risk.
