Editing & Proofing

We provide a quick and efficient service to deliver perfect copy on a variety of topics and in a variety of languages to give you, your company or organisation the edge in your communication efforts.

Glossaries

A translation glossary is a collection of terms with translations, definitions, uses, and associated notes. It is often required for specialised subjects and we have the necessary skills to deal with these disciplines.

Interpretation

We provide simultaneous and consecutive interpreting in all the official languages of South Africa, as well as in a number of European languages. In addition, we provide whispered simultaneous mode interpretation.

  • Translation

  • Interpretation

  • Editing & Proofreading

  • Compilation & Translation of Glossaries

Quality Control

Since we have access to a pool of well-qualified and experienced translators and interpreters, who have been working in their languages for many years, we can be sure that every document we translate is thoroughly checked and error-free.

Our quality control procedures are stringent and include, among others, only sub-contracting freelance simultaneous interpreters, translators and editors who have certain skills and proficiencies.

These include:

  • several years of workplace experience under their belts,
  • proficiency in their mother tongue,
  • good English proficiency across a broad range of registers, and
  • excellent public speaking skills.

We go out of our way to identify people:

  • with post-graduate training in languages and/or translation studies,
  • who are familiar with word processing, spread-sheet and translation memory programs,
  • with at least 50 hours of simultaneous legislature interpreting experience, and
  • at least 10 days of conference interpreting experience, who are accredited with the SA Translators’ Institute or similar.
  • Many of our clients send off the translations in the African languages to an in-house person for checking. This person is usually not a linguist or translator. Our translators are then given the opportunity to accept or reject suggestions from such outside, independent checkers. This process is very useful in the case of the African languages which are not yet completely standardised and where dialectal differences are at stake.
  • For every job, the agency gives detailed translation briefs, specifying age, class, educational level and geographical region of the readership.
  • When possible, our translators/interpreters attend a workshop with the client where they have the opportunity to discuss e.g. aspects of the client’s ethos, the brief, readership, accessibility and acceptability of terminology and translation strategies.
  • Over the years we have compiled term lists in various subjects which are made available to translators working on a particular topic.

Our pricing is cost-effective and word counts are based on your source documents, not the unknown or estimated number of words in the target language.

We deliver on-time for every project and we have the resources and methodology to handle any project in a timely manner. Our vast list of references will give you assurances.

Personalised service with a single point of contact sets our team apart from the rest.
