Q: Why should I pay for a translation when I can use an online translation program to translate my document at no cost?
A: Online translation programs are intended to give readers a general idea of what the document says. However, they are far from accurate when it comes to grammar, spelling or even meaning.
Q: Can you certify my translation?
A: Customers often need their translations certified to meet the requirements of federal and international government agencies. We are pleased to certify your translation for an additional charge.
Q: What if my project requires a security clearance?
A: Feel free to contact our office for secret security clearance information concerning our facilities, translators and support staff.
Q: I have a bilingual colleague who can translate my project. Can you revise that person's translation?
A: We often receive requests asking us to revise documents already translated within an organization. In our experience, this approach rarely works out to the client’s advantage. Usually, we have to start the translation over. There is no substitute for an experienced, certified translator.
