Texts and Documents translation
The first thought which comes into head of the most people when they hear the word ‘translation’ is ‘texts translation’. What could be easier? Take a dictionary (or better still run the text through the translation software) and here it is – finished product! But if you are not engaged in it professionally the result may be poor.
Text translation does not mean just correct words selection in another language and then putting them in the right order for sentences according to grammar rules. It’s also rendering a text meaning which implies putting in additions, explanations, changing of some notions by another ones that are more appropriate for the target language. What’s more the text should be understandable, readable, and not make an impression of translation. Plus for each style there are its own rules of text design. For instance, even such a simple document as a letter has its own formats in different languages let alone serious documents like audit report or technical specification! Not only should a translator have good command of the language but understand the subject matter of translation. All these and many other peculiarities are the must for any translator if he/she considers himself/herself a professional.
And these are the criteria to which we try to stick while providing our written translations services. All our translators are being sieved through very rigorous selection process and then distributed between specializations. Most of our translators have a special background in addition to linguistic education and an extensive experience in translating in various subject fields.
Today you can rest assured that any of your texts regardless the subject matter and complexity will be professionally translated into/from 40 languages.
