OUR TRANSLATION TEAM
Experienced and Qualified: Apart from the formal qualifications held by all members of our translation panel, experience is unassailably one of every member’s finest attributes.
Expert and Specialist: Most of the professional translators in our team restrict their field of work often to one language and to a limited range of registers. They all only ever translate into their mother tongue.
Fees are determined by three main criteria:
LANGUAGE: the scale rises from Romance through Western European to Eastern European, Arabic, Oriental and others
CATEGORY: the scale rises from basic commercial to the highly specialized
WORD COUNT: this is the number of words either in the source language (SL) or, as is the general norm, in the target language (TL i.e., the language into which the work is being translated). Languages not employing Roman script require special attention.
A minimum charge applies to all texts of approximately 300w and below. Surcharges may be applied for: sophistication of presentation; extra speed such as extra-rapid turnaround; special delivery (e.g. courier); elaborate presentation; stylising etc.
We are used to working under extreme pressure. Translation is both an art and a science; the place of translation in the production programme is unique. We work to absolute minimum turnaround times always and insofar as quality is not jeopardised. We pride ourselves on the relationships we have established and maintain with our clients.
CONFIDENTIALITY and CAVEATS
Our translation services are offered subject to the strictest confidentiality, established professional criteria, tenets and caveats. In this regard our terms of business are readily available on request.
DEFINING CLIENT NEEDS
In determining our client’s needs, it is often useful for us to have studied our client’s promotional literature and, wherever appropriate, any other documentation or orientation which will help in understanding the organisation, its product/services, approach etc. If translations have been commissioned before, they will be useful reference to preserve house-style and continuity/consistency of register.
Our clients can rest assured that they will be guaranteed the following benefits:
- Defining client needs
- Ready identification of translators to suit specific needs
- Group work for large contracts
- Full screening of translators
- Personal account manager
