Translation audience

Please tell us how you want to use the translation, so that we understand your requirements. We approach translation differently depending on your required use, as well as your intended target audience. A legal translation will read differently as a result of us preparing it for your internal understanding, in comparison with the same document prepared for court use, or for publication. Do you wish to communicate with a young general public demographic, rather than to older people? You may want to speak to an academic audience, or possibly to address senior government officials, in either case the approach will be different. The required style and tone of the translation will vary, even for a same or similar text, as a result of your intended audience.

High profile document translations

Do you need a high profile public document translated? We translate annual reports and accounts for global corporations, we also translate major websites, media releases, and almost any other type of document.

Thank you and your translators for the work you have done for this project and for the excellent customer service you have provided.
