Technology in focus
We use state-of-the-art digital translation resources to support our work and significantly improve our productivity: the so-called CAT – computer-assisted translations, or computer-assisted translations tools. This technology enables the creation of translation memories that often form customized language inventories for our customers, since every new translation project gets filed and stored specifically under each one of our customers’ own database.
While our productivity increases, our turnaround times decrease, at the same time that our work gains in technical quality and consistency, since our professionals access the same language and glossary databases. Moreover, this material serves as reference for future projects, whether repeated (for example, standard contract which only differ from the originally translated instrument as far as the parties are concerned) or related ones (for example, contractual amendments arising from an original contract which was previously translated within the CAT platform).
Our CATs tools also meet the highest standards of information security and confidentiality.
Last but not least, none of the benefits provided by computer assisted translation tools replaces the human artistry of our team of professional translators. In fact, the combination of cutting-edge technology and meticulous human perception is what differentiates the high standard of our services.
Spelling and grammar accuracy, textual structure and visual presentation are fundamental to assure quality and add fluency to content, making it clearer, more elegant and harmonic.
Our proofreading and text editing services include checking, correcting and revising linguistic content and literary style of:
Translating a digital product or tool from one country, region and language to another requires way more than the knowledge of foreign languages. The effectiveness of a message lies in the difference between a simple text conversion and a complete adaptation of its content.
In order to be faithful to the original linguistic characteristics while making it understandable and appealing to the target audience for which they are intended, it is necessary to conform the message to the profile of the local market and culture. This is also known as localization.
This is not an easy task because an out-of-context, ipsis literis can easily jeopardize the entire communication, advertising and marketing strategy behind the simple text.
The importance of localization is well illustrated in the following examples:
A recipe app originally from the US and in English presents its mass, volume and temperature measurements according to the American customary imperial system. The same app is launched in Brazil, where metric is the standard system, however the recipes are simply translated into Portuguese, ignoring the difference in measurement systems and following the original one. That leaves the entire measurement conversion process up to the user, which will certainly ruin customer experience.
Localization goes way beyond the classic conversion of measurements and currencies and reformatting of dates, addresses and telephone numbers. It encompasses more intricate concepts that are inherent to the target culture and geography, such as: rewriting content and adjusting spellings to suit the audience, and making sure all content meets local and moral standards and expectations.
Our team of highly qualified professionals has the right workflows, regional expertise and resources to make your message and business more appealing and engaging to local consumers, improving brand loyalty and assuring the very best customer experience.
