The editing is just as important as the translation

In addition to the translation followed by the proofreading and correction undertaken by the proofreading editor, all translations are then handed over to a polishing editor, chosen for their expertise in the writing and composition of the target language. The polishing editor’s task is to transform the document into an easy-to-read, smooth flowing document, as if the document had been created directly in the target language.

We stay up to date with the most current terminology

In the rapidly changing environment of the 21st century, language is evolving at even faster rates, with new terms and terminology popping up in every industry and field daily. Whether it is a new financial instrument or the name of the latest wireless technology, we verify each and every new term on the web for the most current usage and the most apt use in context.
