Translation is the process of accurately and idiomatically translating words or text from one language, referred to as the source language, into another, referred to as the target language, without altering the original message. Translation is intended here as human translation, which means content being coined by professional human translators with no input at all from neuro-machine translation engines or AI.
In order to achieve excellent translations, we take great care in selecting the right linguists for the materials you send through. All our translations are human-based translations.
Our linguists specialise in various areas (Creative, Pharma, Legal, Technical, Automotive, Construction, Engineering, Finance, Medical device, etc) and it is our responsibility to match the right linguist profile with the job or project we get according to the source and target languages.
On top of their areas of specialisation our linguists must have 5-year experience minimum in the translation industry, possess a translation degree and pass our translation tests.
Transladiem offers a three-stage translation process to ensure the utmost quality is always reached and to comply with the ISO17100 standards, and the translation step is the first step of this process. Our three-stage translation process includes translation, proofreading (which is an independent bilingual revision by a second linguist), and the final eye step performed by our project management team, i.e. the final QA checks.
The costs for translation are driven by the total amount of words (referred to as word count) contained in your document(s). Then, the final price is calculated by multiplying the word count by the language rate per word. We classify our main language combinations in tiers, based on the rarity of the target language and number of speakers world-wise. Languages are classified as follows from Tier 1, being our most-economic languages to Tier 3, being our most expensive languages:
