FAQs

We cover more than 500 languages – from the most commonly used commercial languages to the more unusual ones. With our database of 13,0000 linguists, we can translate any language.

Translation is written text and interpreting is spoken communication. Translators work with documents; Interpreters work with the spoken words. Translators usually work remotely using specialised software or word processor, etc., whereas interpreters work on-site alongside you and your clients. Translating and interpreting are two very different skills and, although some people offer both services, it is important not to confuse the two when commissioning work.

This depends on the length and complexity of the text, the language and the availability of suitable translators. In general terms you should allow one day for a document with approximately 2500 words. If you need your translation urgently however, we will do our best to accommodate you. We always do our best to ensure a speedy turn-around time for your document.

All our translators are highly qualified and experienced linguists selected from our extensive database of professionals to ensure that each individual project is undertaken by the most suitable linguist whose educational and professional background is the most appropriate to the project in hand. In-keeping with our tradition of offering a high quality professional service, we ensure that all translation work is conducted by native speakers of the target language. Furthermore, we never ask a linguist who is not familiar with the subject to undertake a translation even if they have perfect command of the languages involved.

If your material for translation is Typeset using a specialist DTP [Desk Top Publishing] application; in other words, it contains a special theme, layout or formatting (i.e. backgrounds, graphics, picture, tables, columns, or any other form of creative work) we can ensure to typeset your document so that you can use our translated text in the same application, with the same theme, layout or formatting. Typesetting is a specialised field that requires different skill sets. We employ graphic designers and typesetters who are not only experienced professionals in their field but are also experts in the language(s) they are working in so that they can make sure all grammatical nuances are catered for when finalising their work. We can save you time and money by undertaking your typesetting work as well as translation, thereby eliminating the need for another company or set of professionals to be involved in your projects.
