How will WorldAccent manage your translation project?

We have the experience 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 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), one of our project managers will contact you to:

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

What considerations affect your translation project?

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 translation leads to successful communication between people.

As well as being accurate, a successful translation pays attention to style, linguistic connotations and cultural appropriateness. That is why the translator we select for your project will be a mother-tongue professional linguist, with the skills, educational background, knowledge and experience appropriate for the subject matter of your document.

Our use of the latest software will ensure consistency within your current translation project and also across any related ones. It can also help to reduce costs and turnaround times.

What can we translate?

We can handle a broad variety of document types. So whether you have a business card, presentation, annual report, brochure, or an entire book, we can translate it.

We can 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 solutions

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 range of foreign language fonts, and – perhaps most importantly – decades of accumulated expertise in multilingual typesetting.

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