I need translations from/into a rare language, can you translate into …?

Linguistica currently has existing relationships with native translators for most common languages. Should we not have translators available for the language you require translation into, we will find them for you.

What type of translations do you provide?

While we are able to provide translation for many types of text, we specialize in:

– Video game translation
– Software translation
– Application translation
– Printed material translation
– Website translation

How do you determine the price of a translation?

Prices are calculated based on the English text word count, the type of document to translate, and will vary depending on the target language and any special requirements you may have. For example, discounts are given if your text contains repeated phrases or if you can provide us with translation memory or a glossary. If you do not yet have a glossary, one can be created for you at an extra fee to ensure consistency for your future translations.

How long will it take to translate my document?

The estimated time it takes to translate any text depends on many factors including but not limited to the difficulty of the translation and the availability of translation memory or glossaries. You should calculate at least 24 hours per 1300 words for a standard proofread translation.

For large or urgent projects it is possible to work with several translators in the same language. This is not optimal, as it can often lead to inconsistencies in writing style and vocabulary within the finished product. It can however sometimes be necessary, for example when working on very large video game projects like MMOs.

How do you ensure that translations meet our quality standards?

Our screening process allows us to select translators based on experience, skill, and technical knowledge in the specific translation field.

When assigning translation tasks, we make sure to provide them with all the resources they need to execute their task to the best of their ability.

All translations are proofread by equally qualified translators (unless specifically requested otherwise), and can be put through additional stages of verification if necessary.

How can I help you work better, faster, and for a lower rate?

Providing us with translation style guides, past translation memory, or glossaries can help us maintain consistency in translation, ensure that the final text is written in the style you desire, employ the vocabulary that suits your needs while also accelerating delivery.

Understanding the context of a translation is crucial to the quality of the end result. Giving us access to your game, application or website if applicable is very helpful in preventing contextual errors.
