FAQ'S

WHICH LANGUAGES DO YOU TRANSLATE?

ARABIC |ENGLISH |FRENCH | GERMAN | RUSSIAN | UKRAINIAN | URDU

WHY SHOULD I PAY FOR TRANSLATIONS IF I CAN GET THEM FOR FREE ON THE INTERNET OR USE AUTOMATIC TRANSLATION SOFTWARE?

Free machine translation can sometimes be useful. Using machine translation will provide a level of comprehension of up to approximately 40 percent for a reader unfamiliar with the source language, giving him/her a “gist” of the contents of the document or webpage, which will in a few cases be all that is required.

However, the purpose of most translations is to communicate ideas and information accurately and to provide much more than just a “gist” of the meaning. For this, professional translation is still absolutely essential.

HOW LONG WILL THE TRANSLATION TAKE?

Every translation is different and the time required to translate different texts of similar length can vary greatly. To put it simply, turnaround times depend on the difficulty of the text and our current capacity for the specific language combination. As a general rule, we can translate 1500 – 2500 words per language per day, which normally allows enough time for project management and proofreading.
