Useful translation-related information
This part of our website provides translation clients with translation-related information. It includes articles on the translation and the certification process because we want to give clients an insight into how it all works. However, we also offer information to fellow translators.
First of all you’ll find detailed information on the certification process in general. But we also offer a page with frequently asked questions about the certification of translated documents in the UK (commercial as well as private). What is more, we provide information about certification rules in countries such as Germany, Austria, China, Spain, France, Romania and Italy in particular.
We have put together an in-depth discussion on the complicated subject of translation rate calculation because many customers do not understand why it is so difficult to find translation rates quoted online. It also escapes them why it is essential that a translator has sight of a proposed document before they can furnish them with a binding quote. We hope that the issues at hand when quoting for a translation job will have become clearer due to reading this article.
For a lighthearted look at translation-related issues, please read Iolante’s translators’ column. It not only discusses various translation and language related issues but also occasionally covers subjects simply because they’re close to the columnist’s heart.
