Translation consistency means to translate the same source term with the same target term all the time, as long as that term is used in the same context and subject matter. Consistency is very important in legal and technical documents and it is made possible by compiling a good glossary, for example.
Monica Machado is an English to Portuguese technical and legal translator working for Angola, Cape Verde, Guinea-Bissau, Mozambique, Sao Tome and Principe and Portugal.
