“Professional translation and localisation services”

Translation, unlike interpretation, involves the written word and  is the process of converting a document from its original   language version  into a different languag. This is done by substituting words from one language to another, while maintaing meaning and context.
Context is paramount since a primitive ‘word for word’ translation, such as you see above,  may lose the intended meaning. We suspect the example above involved automation and, while it may make an amusing meme for language service providers, it might prove disasterous should it find its way into a business document.
Top quality translation ensures that you communicate  well with clients. In a business setting, accuracy can be particularly important to avoid potentially protracted and costly disputes. Where no human hand is involved, even the best-designed algorithms may struggle. For this reason, we prefer to use qualified professional translators. Ideally, any work would be edited after translation to fully ensure the context has been maintained. However, we know that cost and turnaround times maybe be important considerations so we offer our translation services on both an edited and unedited basis.
