I've learned a few things from translating and managing translation projects. These are difficult tasks but managing translations is challenging even if you understand the foreign language. It requires time, dedication, attention to detail, and a great deal of organizational skills.
I've made a few mistakes along the way and learned from them. Luckily, I never suffered a major disaster, as I know sometimes happens in this industry.
Having the original documents alone is not enough to embark on a translation project. If a company requests large amounts of material to be translated at once without managing the task properly, the translations could be inadequate, difficult to identify, or in extreme cases, never be used. This is a waste of time and money, and worst of all, non-English speakers continue without access to the documents they so greatly need.

For a translation to be effective, it must contain language used by your entity and the group for which it is created. When translating court material:
A Winter Storm Warning means a significant amount of snow, sleet and ice will make travel dangerous or impossible. Latest road conditions for your state can be obtained by calling 5-1-1.
How to prepare and stay safe (from https://www.ready.gov/)
Stay indoors during the storm.
Prolonged exposure to cold can cause hypothermia.
Walk and drive carefully on icy sidewalks and roads.
Many injuries and accidents are caused by slippery conditions.
Before driving, let someone know your destination, route, and expected time of arrival.
If your car gets stuck, it’ll be easier to find you.
If you lose feeling and color in your nose, ears, hands, or feet, cover the exposed area, avoid rubbing your skin, and seek medical help immediately.
You may have frostbite.
When shoveling snow, take breaks and lift lighter loads.
Working too hard can lead to heart attacks.
Wet clothes make you lose body heat, increasing your risk of hypothermia.
