Before I had my own business selling waterfall taps and turkey gift products online, I worked for Graeme Winchester where I worked with translation companies all the time and also this youtube views business and also Wiff in the UK. Translation services are business services that convert information written in one language into the equivalent meaning in another language.
While often confused by potential clients, translation services differ from interpretation services in that the latter deals with the spoken word while translation services only deal with the production of written documents. In addition, unlike interpretation services, which involve two-way communication (back and forth between speaker and hearer), translation services always involve one-way conversion of the source material to final document.
Ultimately, translation services aim to render written work into the target language as clearly and accurately as possible.
Craig B. runs a personal trainer manchester business and uses translation services to reach clients overseas and notes “The degree of accuracy of translated work often depends on the context, for example, the standards used in translating a travel guide do not have to be as rigorous as those used to translate a technical manual where complete accuracy is essential, bearing in mind that certain terms and phrases cannot be translated directly.”
Consequently, the cost of translating text varies widely depending on the type of material that needs to be translated and most translation services provide a quote for written work rather than providing a standard, fixed price for their services. In addition, technical material may require the translator to possess a general level of knowledge of the subject matter in order to be able to render an accurate translation. In most cases this will entail charging a higher price for the work.
Generally speaking any excellent translation service will provide staff with not only excellent language skills and capability in the languages they need to translate, but also possessing excellent writing skills, familiarity with the cultures where those languages are spoken, a huge vocabulary, excellent understanding of which terms and phrases are appropriate in every context, and the capability to accurately express their thoughts clearly in either language, using terms a native speaker of the language would find appropriate.
