What is Translation?
The concept of translation refers to reproduce and/or explain the written or spoken text from one language to another. The purpose of translation is to convey a message from one language to another, taking into account the cultural and regional differences between the source and target languages. Humanity has used translation for centuries with the emergence of written literature. Translators today use complex tools and technologies to perform their work. However, for simplification and optimization purposes, it mainly relies on digital translation technologies.
Translation agencies offer translation services for various text types. These are usually ancillary documents and professional translations that cover a specific field such as law, medicine, technology, banking and finance, advertising and marketing or economics. To perform such services well, the agency must have a team of skilled and experienced translators. Agencies often employ freelancers or operate on an outsourcing basis. Translators must demonstrate not only excellent language skills, confirmed by diplomas, education and experience, but also knowledge of a particular subject area and accompanying contexts.
How do the Translation Agencies Work?
The task of a translation agency is to handle both small orders (including certified translations) from individual clients and large projects for international companies. Projects often involve many people who correct and edit the text at each stage, observing the rigorous quality assurance system. Translators work in teams, asissted by a project manager who coordinates their work.
What is the Scope of Translation Agencies?
Translation agencies do not only translate the text from the source language to the target language. The scope of a translation agency is generally as follows: certified translations, professional translations (related to areas of expertise), proofreading, transcripts; translation of websites, creation of databases (such as Translation Memory) and management of translation terminology. Translation offices offer translation services as well as text translations. Interpreters are often used in business meetings and negotiations. They must have a thorough knowledge of the language and context of the meeting, as well as an exceptional ability to concentrate.
