Translation, Editing, Proofreading process. A proper TEP sequence ensures superior quality. After completing the translation, we move to the editing phase. Here, we compare the source text to the translated version to ensure that the translation is accurate, consistent, and it faithfully follows the context of the source text.
The next step after editing is proofreading. The proofreading is done by the original translator or passed along to another proofreader to ensure a fresh set of eyes can catch any mistakes still left. The role of the proofreader is to review the translation itself and verify that it is grammatically correct, that it flows, and does not sound translated. The goal of a successful translation is for it to read and flow as if it was the original version.
Sometimes an additional step is necessary when working with files that require design work, e.g., PDF files, images, spreadsheets, and such. This extra step is called Desktop Publishing (DTP).
By definition, translation means to change words from one language (source) into another (target). However, the true essence of an accurate translation is to convey the meaning and context from one language to another. Context in translation specializes in translations from English (US) into Spanish (Latin America), and Spanish into English.
We charge per source word. A typical type-written document, double-spaced, 12-point font is approximately between 250-325 words. All of our translations include the TEP Process (Translation, Editing, and Proofreading) and are priced to reflect it. All our translations that undergo the TEP process are worked on by two people. One individual performs the translation, and the second does the editing and proofreading. Two sets of eyes are better than one and it ensures consistency and accuracy.
By definition, editing is to alter, adapt, or refine especially to bring about conformity to a standard or to suit a particular purpose. If your project needs reviewing before publication or you want to have it double checked, we can help. We will ensure it is grammatically correct and that it reads well to help avoid costly updates.
If you are not happy with your existing translation and will like to have it reviewed and edited, we can help as well.
What is post-editing?
As technology improves, Machine Translations (MT) are on the rise. These products need to be reviewed, altered, and refined just like human translations, and sometimes it can involve more work. Not all MTs are the same, some are better than others, and it takes a human eye to be able to ensure that the translation is accurate and it conveys the intended message.

The art of converting the contents of audio into text is called transcription. Allow us to take your audio recordings from notes, meetings, sessions and give you a written transcript.

Poor audio can also increase the cost of your transcription. We charge per audio minute. The base rate starts with one or two speakers.
Please keep in mind that:
There are approximately 100-150 words in one minute of audio.
It can take 5-7 hours to transcribe a 60-minute audio/video.
Quality work takes time and research, even with great audio.

Documents must be submitted in an editable format for accurate word count. PDF documents and other non-editable formats may incur an additional cost. Audio and video files are also subject to review.
