How to over come Language Barrier in project 

Hi,

I am working on a project where requirements elicitation takes place in Dutch language. I know English. Currently project is experiencing a big gap in the actual translation of the business. I have been chosen in  new role where I need to take all the stuff from dutch business and then  translate the session and present it to the offshore development team. 

There are other business analyst who are working with customer in local language (dutch). they again communicate those thing to me in English. Now a task has been assign to me to workout a way to handle the issue of getting knowledge transferred to team coherently.

Can any body help me in giving ideas and insights, What should be my Approach to deal with it.

 

Best Regards,

What Does Success Look Like? I challenge Business Analysts to view requestors’ requirements as an opportunity to define success. Too often, teams fall into a trap focused on requestors’ prescriptive requirements that are meant to serve as roadmaps for developers and testers.
