Translation is harder than it looks, and speaking two languages does NOT mean you can translate---it means you can speak two languages. You can be a knowledgeable and competent professional, but not have perfect writing skills, no? Even if your writing is pretty solid, do you need someone to proofread for you? Yes, you do. Everyone does. Competent translators have outstanding reading comprehension in their source language (the one they’re translating from) and extraordinary writing skills in their target language (the one they’re translating into). This is a lot harder than being able to hold a conversation (even a witty and insightful conversation), in either language.
The good news is, we’ve got you covered! Our diverse, worldwide team of linguists have experience, accreditation, and support from one another. Take a look at our Top 10 Translation Pointers, and click HERE to get an estimate.

Also called on-site translation, interpretation occurs when our linguist goes back and forth with a client and states in the target language what has been said in English. Often this is a very appropriate and valuable way to communicate, as in an employee evaluation, for example. However, in some instances, particularly in benefits enrollment meetings, we highly recommend presenting.
Thank you for all your support this year. You really came through for us with some particularly large projects with tight turnarounds. I so appreciate the incredible level of support you consistently provide us. It is very very appreciated!!
