Got a question? We have the answer.
- Why is it so important to get PR materials translated?
You invest a great deal in PR to ensure that your message resonates with your target audience. If this isn’t done in your audience’s mother tongue, then your investment goes to waste. Avoid any possible issues and address your target market directly.
- Which languages do you offer for PR translations?
We can provide you with whatever you need. With 450 professional translators all around the world, we have the right person for every language combination.
- What sort of PR documents are translated?
From press kits to LinkedIn posts, we can help you with your international PR work. We can also translate your white papers and any other content into the languages of your target markets.
- We have exacting demands where marketing translations are concerned. How will you ensure these are satisfied?
We check the work carried out by our professional translators on an ongoing basis with the help of a review and evaluation system that we’ve developed ourselves (based on the SAE J2450 standard). Aside from thoroughly checking the translation for technical accuracy, we also gauge how suitable the language is for marketing purposes. This is how we have earned our reputation as a leading agency for marketing translations.
- What are the benefits of proofreading to ISO standard?
Proofreading to ISO standard is an overall check of the translation. We recommend proofreading to ISO standard by a second native speaker for printed texts in particular. A second native-speaking professional translator with at least the same qualifications will compare the translation against the source text sentence by sentence. In addition to checking the content, the sentence structure, spelling, punctuation and style are also checked.
- We have a company glossary – can you use it?
We can import your existing terminology and make sure that it is used in each and every project. Our database shows our professional translators every time a term appears, and compliance is checked in our quality assurance process.
- What do I need to bear in mind when it comes to flyer translations?
Be concise and to the point. The translation must be worded in the same way as your flyers. To do this, you need professionals with a particular flair for marketing language. You then also need someone to check the layout in the target language.
- What do I need to bear in mind when it comes to catalogue translations?
Your language service provider must be a competent user of Adobe InDesign. This will minimise any possible issues for you and the advertising agency. At the same time, having the right translators is essential – different experts are required for a new motorhome than for cable assemblies.
- What is the difference between proofreading and editing?
Proofreading is about checking whether the text is linguistically correct. Attention is paid to spelling, grammar and punctuation. Editing goes beyond this. Language consistency is also checked, while the language style is improved and any misleading passages are reworded as necessary.
- Which format does the text have to be in?
Ideally, send us the text to be translated in an editable format – it can be Word, Excel, PowerPoint, IDML or XML/XLIFF. This will enable us to translate your original document directly without requiring any tedious copying and pasting on your part. By the way, if you don’t have an editable file to hand, we will be happy to create one for you.
