When translating from English to other languages, the naturalization method is most often used.  The most common way that professional translators translate neologisms is through the Think aloud protocol (TAP), wherein translators find the most appropriate and natural sounding new word through speech.  This way, translators are able to use potential translated neologisms in sentences and test them with different structures and syntax. Correct translations from English for specific purposes into other languages is crucial in various industries and legal systems.   Inaccurate translations can lead to 'translation asymmetry' or conceptual misunderstandings which can lead to miscommunication.  Many technical glossaries of English translations exist to combat this issue in the medical, judicial, and technological fields.
