Having a preferred supplier for your translation needs

Have you had your hair cut or your car serviced recently?  If you have, then there’s a really strong chance that you visited your hairdresser or your preferred garage.  And you’ve probably been using their services for years.

Why do we return to the same provider time and time again?  We may well be creatures of habit, but it’s more likely to be because we’re happy with the service they provide, we feel our needs are being met, we trust them, we know what we’re getting and we feel valued.

My Supplier
Over time we accrue all sorts of preferred suppliers to meet our needs from plumbers, doctors, dentists and hairdressers.  So surely it makes perfect sense if you are looking for a translation service, especially on an ongoing basis, to find a company that fits the criteria you apply to your personal choices.

Make Enigma Translation your preferred supplier
Well like any blossoming relationship the more time we spend working together, the more we will get to know you, your business and translation requirements.

We can provide professional translators who are fully qualified in the source language, a native speaker of the target language and in addition have expertise in the area you require support.  Thus ensuring an understanding of the language’s nuances, the cultural differences and the context in which your document is written.

Together we can build a glossary of terms to aid continuity across all your translations by using the relevant terminology and keywords for your industry.  Also in-house jargon specific to your products or services will be at hand to ensure accuracy and maintain context.

Our extensive team of professional translators and proof-readers work closely together ensuring translated text is checked and then checked again with a fresh pair of eyes as standard.

We can also help you with copywriting, editing and desktop publishing as well as providing professional interpreters for the spoken word too.

Getting to know us
By using our services regularly you will see what can be achieved and can be sure we will meet your deadlines quickly.  We can usually do this within 24 hours or super fast with our same day service if urgently required.

For example we recently completed an urgent translation for a one page brochure from English to Turkish in less than 4 hours.  The instruction arrived at 10.50am and was ready by 14.26pm on the same day.  We also completed the certified translation of Russian financial statements into English in just 5 hours.  We received instruction at 2pm and our client collected the finished work at 7pm, again on the same day.

Glossary of terms

If you follow us on Facebook you will have seen this post on our Enigma Translation page in the last few days:

“Many larger companies have their own in house culture, jargon and abbreviations and to outsiders it can be very confusing.  In these situations a glossary of terms is very helpful.  If one is not available then we can create one for future reference to ensure consistency and accuracy.”

We’d like to expand on this and what we can offer your business in the way of a glossary of terms.

Translation servicesWhat is a glossary of terms?
A glossary of terms is an invaluable tool for translators and is subject, client and project specific – think of it as ‘A Translator’s Guide to Your Company’.  Basically it is a translated list of approved words and terms relevant to your company which have been generated by you and the translator.

They are company, product, service and subject specific and include relevant terminology used in specialised areas.  For instance technical, medical, legal, marketing and financial terms as well as in-house catchphrases, jargon, abbreviations and strap lines etc.  Essentially whatever terminology is particular to your business area, products or service.

How can a glossary of terms benefit your company?
If you regularly require translation of documentation for and from clients and business associates a glossary of terms will aid the translator employed to do this.  It will ensure that your translator understands your business, brand, services and products resulting in consistent and correct terminology being used throughout your translations.

It will also be beneficial and cost-effective for further future translations as research and correction time is already reduced.  By using the glossary as an aid, the translator or translators can quickly and efficiently continue translating in the same tone and context by using correct approved terminology.

And if you are considering translating into multiple languages it truly comes into its own as multilingual equivalents can be easily added to already identified and translated keywords and terms.
