How to select the right translation agency?

In today’s globalised world it is inevitable that businesses and individuals will need to communicate at an international level. While language barriers can be encountered in an international business environment, this need not be problematic thanks to the certified, qualified team of translators.

Translation and Localisation

In some cases, you may only need a fairly straightforward translation service, where the vocabulary, sentence structure and technical or idiomatic language corresponds fairly directly between one language and another. On other occasions, localisation may be required. Localisation takes the process of translation further, adapting the translation of text in ways specific to a particular nation or region.

This is important in an international marketplace because regional variations often exist in the use of languages e.g. differences between Castilian or Latin American Spanish or Portuguese, as spoken in Portugal or Brazil. In certain countries and regions, rules for grammar and syntax may vary between regions, along with the appropriate use of idiomatic language and expressions. Thus, localization addresses linguistic, physical, business, cultural and technical issues during the translation process, specific to whatever target language you have chosen.
