Behind-the-Scenes Guide to Translation

A translation:

    • requires a deep understanding of the source text.
    • must take into account industry-specific terminology.
    • must align with your corporate identity, company-specific terminology and proprietary tools.
    • should never sound translated.
    • must comply with official regulations and industry conventions.
    • must accurately convey all aspects of a highly complex subject matter into the target language.

Why work with a professional translator specializing in your field?

Why is a medical translator so imperative for a medical text? Two words: specialized terminology. That is, each technical term has a precise meaning. If the translator fails to convey the precision of the term, the translation fails in its purpose. For example, “titrate the reagent at a rate of 10ml per minute” may require a translator who understands titration.

A non-scientific translator who lacks an understanding of titration might Google the term and attempt to render it literally. If the source text is English, the translator might use target-language terms such as “pour,” “measure,” and “analyze.” These, however, fail to convey the precise definition of the word.

That’s why I am continuously striving to stay on top of technological advances in your fields of business. I am keeping my finger on the pulse for youto live up to my promise to guarantee you the best possible quality.
