How will WorldAccent manage your translation project?

We have the expertise and flexibility to complete your project as efficiently as possible whilst accommodating your needs.

Do you have a fixed deadline? We can advise on what is possible within your schedule.

Do you have staff or stakeholders who need to approve or review the translations? We can supply translated files in a format that is easy to revise and track.

Do you need any additional services such as typesetting?

It will help expedite our response to your initial enquiry if you can give us any information you think relevant. Our enquiry form will help you give us the details we need most.

Once we have assessed the style, content, background and purpose of your document(s), we will contact you to:

As your project moves forward, you will be kept up-to-date on its progress, and we are always available to offer information and advice.

What considerations affect your translations?

Word count is the factor that most affects translation price and turnaround time, but it’s not the only one. What is your file format? Does it need any special layout? Does it have a particular context? If your document is financial, legal or technical, it may use jargon that requires specialist knowledge or research from the translator.

We are always happy to advise, whether you are still in the early stages of planning or need to proceed without delay.

Think also about the main purpose of your translation. Accuracy and detail are a requirement for informational documents, but for marketing and campaigns your priority may be style and tone.

And of course, it can only help the translation if the English source is well written!

What distinguishes a good translation?

WorldAccent understands that good translations leads to successful communication between people, and will pay attention not only to accuracy, but also to style, linguistic connotations and cultural appropriateness.

That is why the translators we employ will be mother-tongue professional linguists, with the skills, educational background, knowledge and experience appropriate for the subject matter of your document, be it marketing, technical, legal, or whatever else.

They will be fully briefed on the context of each assignment, including your target audience and the role of the document within your communication strategy.

Naturally a round of review for any preferential feedback on your translations is included prior to final delivery.

The word translation in dictionary

What can we translate?

Our team of translators cover a broad variety of topics. So whether you have a business card, presentation, annual report, brochure, or an entire book, we can translate it.

We are able to handle most electronic document formats directly. There’s usually no need to create a separate file or extract what needs to be translated – just send us your English document as it stands and we will do the rest. Some of our most frequent file types include InDesign, Word, Excel, Powerpoint, HTML, XML, Illustrator, Quark Xpress, Photoshop and subtitles.

Other language services

If you wish, we can provide a combined typesetting service with your translation. This creates economies and efficiencies over carrying out the two separately. Our in-house studio has specialist software, an extensive choice of foreign language fonts, and – perhaps most importantly – decades of accumulated expertise in multilingual typesetting.

WorldAccent also offers a range of other foreign language services including copywriting, proofreading and multilanguage transcription.
