Translation Services

Language Marketplace is committed to providing the highest quality possible in translation services, while guaranteeing the best price to our customers. Our two key focus areas are business and government institutions - we do not perform personal document translation for individuals.

Our company's success has been built on providing the best translation services at reasonable rates. This has been accomplished by using translators who hold a linguistic degree or have equivalent professional experience and are competent in their field. Our translators translate only into their mother tongue. We do not use or offer machine translation.

With experienced, tried and tested, in-house and freelance translators, Language Marketplace offers its clients a quality translation service at fair prices. Language Marketplace recognizes that it is not just the word accuracy of a translation that is important but the cultural localization as well, something that only experienced native language translators can convey.

We maintain a rigorous Quality Management System for all translation projects:


* All of our translators hold a linguistic degree from a major university in their target language. All written documents, regardless of their size and turnaround time, are first evaluated by a Team Leader to match the projects nuances with the appropriate translator. A terminology platform may be developed to ensure document consistency. It is then translated, edited, and also proofread by a second translator. Finally, the Team Leader reviews the finished product for structural integrity. This team-oriented process ensures consistency in content, form, and style of the translated document.

* We create company-specific glossaries for large on-going translation projects, which tend to have many revisions. Such glossaries ensure accurate and consistent use of terminology for future related translation projects as well.

Perils of Machine Translation


No matter how sophisticated or expensive a translation program may be, it has major limitations. A software package can only do what it is programmed to do. Translation programs are fine for single word translation, but they cannot perform contextual translation. Regardless of the manufacturer's claims, no software package can deal with the constantly changing nature of a living language. Legal, scientific and specialized phrases and terms are a particularly problematic area for translation programs, but they also often have difficulty with simple homonyms and synonyms.

You've probably received dozens of advertisements for software packages that claim to meet every imaginable translation need, from literal translation to complex legal contracts. These ads often include such enticing statements as:


* Automatic complete text translation *
* Translating without linguistic knowledge *
* The complete text translator *
* Save a lot of money! A translation program will do all translations. *

Well, we continually test various translation programs to see just how accurate they are. Online translation services (such as the free service provided at Google) were included in the tests. Prices ranged from free to very expensive, but all tested programs provided the same results. None of the programs yielded accurate contextual translation. In other words, the meaning of the original passage was lost in the translation.

Machine translations can assist in translating simple texts. They are however not suitable for complex texts.

Please read this article which tells a real story about these perils.
