AREAS OF TRANSLATION

CORPORATE

Corporate communication is a creative process where you need to spark off the same reaction you get in the source language. This means understanding the nuances of your target language. It means playing with different levels of language (i.e. lexical, textual, syntactic) as well as conveying slang and the subtleties of cultural differences.

Whether it’s a press release or presentation, magazine or newspaper article, marketing or advertising material, we transfer the original quality and you won’t even recognize the result as being a translation.

LEGAL

The translation of legal documents can be “one helluva job” too as it requires outstanding talents and skills that transcend those of general-purpose translators. Legal translation is considered one of the toughest challenges as it combines the inventiveness of literary translation with the terminological precision of technical translation. That is basically due to the specificity of legal language and, in particular, to the system-bound nature of legal jargon and differences between common law and civil law jurisdictions.

We have an outstanding team of legal translation consultants who not only “talk the talk”, but “walk the walk” too. Their strong legal background and skills have helped us build cooperative ties with the cream of the Bar and with legal departments across major corporations. These organizations have come to know us for the boutique quality we deliver and the reputation we’ve earned. We intend to keep things that way.
