translating interior design

What does translating interior design mean?  During the last 15 years in the construction industry, my roles have been varied.  One thing, however, has remained constant; the language used by Clients differs drastically from that used by the trades, suppliers and professionals completing the build or renovation.  This has lead to additional costs for Clients or the Contractor, lost time, mistakes and overall frustration.  This is the reason for the interior design field in the building and renovating industry.  Interior design is more than selecting colors or the type of flooring, it's about the complete and accurate translation of details required to ensure the successful completion of a project.
