Translation FAQs

Collaboration, the best linguists and a stringent QA process! This, alongside a clear briefing and intelligent vendor questions from the start, leads to the best end product. Our ISO 17100:2015 QA processes and the best-qualified translators are what guarantees a translation you can count on. We use native-speaking colleagues to verify the quality of a translation. 

Typically, translation is charged per source word, from 10p/word, with a minimum charge starting at £50. However, the language combination, level of QA, formatting and level of creative input can all influence the end cost.  

Typically, translators can get through 1,500-2,000 words a day. However, if your project is urgent, we can have a team translating faster in tandem. So, 24-hour turnaround for smaller projects is possible.

Google Translate is a form of machine translation. Over the years it has improved in terms of accuracy and intelligibility. Depending on the language, it can give you the basic gist of a foreign text for free, but it should never be used to render your own language into a target language without a human post-editor.

Other, more advanced machine translation software is available but the more sophisticated you need the translation to be, the more you will have to pay. Again, we would strongly advise that any text be revised by a human post-editor.

Machine translation does the translation itself; translation memory software simply stores everything previously translated in a “translation memory”. The benefits of using TMs are saving translation costs, improving QA and maintaining consistency.

We recommend you approve a team of ‘preferred translators’ when you start working with us; we can provide you with 3-4 sample translations of the text per language. The more linguists you can approve, the better, because we then have a wider pool of translators to choose from when faced with an urgent deadline. Using the same linguists on all of your projects enables them to get used to the style and tone of your content so that you receive accurate translations even faster.
