Q» Why should I pay for a translation when I can have my document translated at no cost by an online translation program?
A» Online translation programs are intended only to give the reader a general idea of the sense of the text. They are far from accurate when it comes to grammar, spelling and even intended meaning.
Q» Can you certify my translation?
A» We are often asked by customers to certify translations as a requirement of various federal and international government agencies. We will be pleased to provide a certificate, for an additional fee of course.
Q» What if my project requires a security clearance?
A» Do not hesitate to contact our office for secret clearance information concerning our facilities, our translators and our support staff.
Q» I have a bilingual colleague available to translate my project. Can you revise that person's translation?
A» We often receive requests for revision of documents already translated within an organization. This approach rarely works in favour of the client, as we are usually obliged to redo the translation from scratch. Nothing compares to an experienced, certified translator.
