Translation for individuals as well as business

We’re not sure if you know this, but Enigma Translation help individuals with their translation needs on a daily basis.  Basically, we provide translation services and interpreters to more than just businesses.

There are many scenarios that take us abroad – holidays, work, study, owning a holiday let, relocating, retirement – either short term or long term.  But all introduce us to a different culture and often a new language.

Translation servicesGenerally as UK citizens we are very fortunate that English is a widely understood and spoken language across the globe, but when it comes to the written word sometimes our phrase book just isn’t enough.  And even if you’ve been fastidious enough to begin learning the language of your destination, there will be circumstances when you will need expertise and translation in a specialised area.

When you might need Enigma Translation
Living in a foreign country is fun and exciting but it can also produce a lot of paperwork, which can become a minefield if it’s in a language you don’t understand.

Medical
Straightforward things like finding a new doctor or dentist may require registration and details of your medical history.  Help with Medical Translation is vital to ensure any existing illnesses, conditions and medical requirements are conveyed and understood.  Interpreters can be essential in these situations.   

Legal
Perhaps there’s an issue with your work permit/visa and you need to seek legal advice.  Or you may be legally obliged to pay taxes as a resident.  Enigma Translation can offer Legal Translation of documents or arrange for an interpreter to be present at any meetings you might need with a solicitor.

Perhaps you’re marrying overseas.  You may need to acquire a marriage permit or licence and of course there will be the marriage certificate.  And if you decide to start a family you will need to register the birth of your son or daughter too.  Again we can help with the Legal Translation of registration documents and certificates and Medical Translation of hospital documentation. 

Property and Finance
Of course if you’ve relocated abroad be it for work, study, the summer or retirement, you’ll need somewhere to call home.  We cover all aspects of Property Law Translation and Financial Translation so will be able to help you if you are renting, buying, letting or selling a property.  We can also offer you the same support if you are managing this from the UK.

These are just a few examples of where our huge network of professional linguists and interpreters can help.  For details of the 114 languages we are versed in and the other specialist areas we can offer translation, please see our website.

Medical Translation

Enigma Translation‘s Medical Translation service covers a vast area and is highly specialised.  Accuracy and efficiency is crucial as is expert knowledge of the medical sector, medical texts and hospital procedures in different countries.  Without stating the obvious, a poor or timely translation could mean the difference between life and death.

Let’s face it when we find ourselves in a medical situation as hard as we try to process the information we’re given at the time, we often come away questioning whether we’ve fully understood what was said.  What made sense in the doctor’s surgery, A&E or in the consultant’s room at the hospital is suddenly not so clear.

medical translationDon’t lose your head
So transport yourself to another country with a different language and understandably the situation can become a whole lot more scary and stressful.  However if you find yourself in this predicament, be it requiring medical or dental assistance whilst on holiday or as a new resident in a new country, Enigma Translation can help.

Not only do we take the mystery out of the language but also out of the situation.  Engaging the services of our professional translators to help with translating medical documentation can reduce the additional anxiety and stress of not fully understanding the situation or diagnosis.

On home ground
Perhaps on your return from another country you need to pass your medical documentation to your own doctor or insurance company.  Enigma Translation can help with the Medical Translation of patient information papers, consent forms, prescriptions, test results and discharge papers to name but a few.

Of course you may have opted for a medical procedure or alternative therapies to be carried out overseas or the family pet may have travelled with you on holiday and needed veterinary attention.  Many of these will generate medical paperwork that you may wish to have translated.

Make your business our business
On a business level perhaps you are providing a medical service abroad or dealing with medical documentation such as reports, journals, questionnaires, brochures or instructions for medical equipment that require translating.  Again our professional team of linguists can help.  We will assign a translator who is expert in the source language, target language and particular medical sector you are dealing with.

Also if you are running a restaurant or bar overseas and need to understand Health and Safety procedures in a foreign country and translate the documentation that goes with it, we can help with that too.

Medically speaking
In fact Enigma Translation has translation experience in all of the following medical areas: Oncology, Ophthalmology, Orthopaedics, Paediatrics, Radiology, Psychiatry, Preventative medicine, Dentistry, Veterinary, Alternative therapies, Health and safety, Public health and Pharmaceuticals.

Whatever your Medical Translation needs, Enigma Translation is here to help.  Get in touch to find out more by calling +44 (01604) 750 799 or by email if you prefer.  You’ll also find details on our website and our free instant quote facility too.

And if for any reason there are legal implications with your medical situation abroad, we can also provide legal translation.

Top Tips for choosing a translation company

There are many companies offering translation services so how do you spot a good one?  The one that’s right for you?  Here at Enigma Translation we’ve prepared our top tips to help with the challenge.

1. Experienced company
Look for an established company with experience.  Give them a call and chat about your requirements and what you’d like to achieve.  Ask them about their credentials and services they provide for other clients.  This will give you a feel for the company and gut instinct will tell you whether you’re a match.

Enigma Translation has been providing translation services since 2004.  Our founder Graham Bowles believes “The world of language translation can be a mystery to many people and barriers are built up, hence the name Enigma – meaning a puzzling thing or person.  With Enigma Translation, it’s not a barrier, it’s a gateway!”

2. Comprehensive services
Make sure the company specialises in the area of translation you require and in areas that you might see yourself using in the future.

We specialise in many areas of translation because business comes in all shapes and sizes

  • Legal translation covering Civil law, Commercial law, Criminal law, International law, Property law, Employment law, Probate and Family law
  • Marketing translation for press releases, newsletters, emails, flyers, brochures and entire marketing campaigns
  • Financial translation covering Banking, Insurance, Taxation, Stock Markets and Property Markets
  • Medical translation in these areas: Alternative therapies, Dentistry, Health and safety, Oncology, Ophthalmology, Orthopaedics, Paediatrics, Pharmaceuticals, Preventative medicine, Psychiatry, Public health, Radiology and Veterinary
  • Website translation to enable your message, services and products to reach a broader target audience

Take a look on our website to see the other areas we can help with translation in too.

3. The personal touch
Look for a company that uses human translators not computer software.  Translation Memory software has its place but its literal translations from databases storing translated words and phrases often miss the mark.

By using Enigma Translation you’ll benefit from the personal touch of a professional linguist who is specially assigned to you and the specialist area you require translation in.  Thus ensuring an understanding of the language’s nuances, the cultural differences and the context in which your document is written.  This is crucial to ensure an accurate translation.

4. Source and target language
Make sure the company offers translators who are fluent in both the source and target language.  Expertise in only one is offering an incomplete service and allowing room for error.

At Enigma Translation our 2,000 strong team of translators are fluent in over 70 languages.  Your dedicated linguist will be fully qualified in the source language, a native speaker of the target language and in addition have expertise in the area you require support.

By now you’ll have realised the challenge is over and that Enigma Translation is the company for you!  Give us a call on +44 (01604) 750 799, email us or get a free instant quote via our website.

Financial translation

If you are dallying with the idea of moving your business or yourself to foreign lands, then add Financial translation services to your priority list. 

Even if you aren’t moving but you are doing business in another country you need to be able to converse or at least be sure of what your overseas client is recommending or intending to process.

With any large financial transaction on home ground, be it buying or selling property, setting up a business or making investments, you engage the services of an expert to manage the process, because when it comes to money you don’t want to lose a penny.

When things don’t add up
Of course overseas you’d do the same, but should you just assume the expert is fluent in your language?  After all that phone call went well, albeit after a shaky start and the emails sort of suggest you’re on the same page…but what if you’re not?  What if communication is a struggle in a ‘pigeon’ version of your native tongue?  How can you be sure you’re in safe hands?

You do the maths
Look at it this way, we’ve all laughed off unexpected dishes after failing to interpret a menu in a foreign restaurant successfully, but can any of us really afford to make the same mistake with larger sums of money or investments?  We’re guessing no.

Grade A maths and languages
By engaging the Financial translation services of Enigma translation, you’re taking steps to safeguard your assets abroad.  You’ll be in expert hands with a translator who understands the source language, speaks the target language and has a head for business – your business – be it personal or otherwise. 

Our linguists have experience in all aspects of business, personal finance and economics including banking, insurance, taxation, stock markets and property markets.  Thus enabling you to fully understand the process you are undertaking and the cultural differences in doing business overseas, eliminating costly shocks along the way.

Time sensitivity
The time difference between countries can be an advantage as well as a disadvantage, so if you need your Financial translation in a hurry, we’ll meet your deadline by turning it around in 24 hours if necessary. 

Financial terminology in whichever language you are dealing with will soon become your second language with the help of Enigma Translation.  Visit our website for a free instant quote, email us or give us a call on +44 (01604) 750 799.

Of course with any financial deal there is also likely to be a legal implication so don’t forget that Enigma Translation can also help with legal translations.

Website translation

Mandarin, English and Spanish are the most spoken languages in the world and therefore the most common languages of Internet users. 

Calling all Internet users
According to research by Internet World Stats for May 2011, there are 565,004,126 English language users, 509,965,013 Mandarin language users and 164,968,742 Spanish language users globally.  A contributing factor as to why English is at the top of the list is because the primary search engine companies are American and computer languages are also a sub set of the English language.

Get more than a slice of the action
However, despite English being widely understood around the globe and the international language of business, it is not the second language of every Internet user worldwide.  Therefore a website solely in English is not reaching the full market.  There are still pockets of attainable business to be had.

Wouldn’t it make sense then to translate the message your website is promoting into the native tongue of the audience or audiences you are trying to attract?  Wouldn’t it speak louder to new visitors?

Sending a clear message
Fully understanding what services or products are on offer from your website is essential to instilling trust in your new clients/customers.  If those clients/customers speak a different language, surely providing website content in their language or multiple languages is the obvious solution? 

Global aspirations
By using the website translation service of Enigma translation you can make yourself heard and understood across the Internet, potentially connecting with a broader audience where your competitors aren’t.  You’ll also benefit from your website’s linked keywords and phrases being in a foreign language as they will score highly in search engine rankings.  This is because there is less foreign language content online compared to English, hence less competition.  This will also help to improve your visibility.

Linguistically helpful
With the help of an Enigma translator you’ll not only benefit from their knowledge of the language and culture, but their expert knowledge of website translation too.  They’ll be on hand to advise you and should the need arise suggest a more culturally acceptable way of getting your message across. 

Fluent in over 70 languages
From English to Somali, Belarusian to Turkish, we’ve got the language skills to support your business across the globe. 

Communication in a multitude of languages is only a click away…visit our website for details, email us or give us a call on +44 (01604) 750 799 to chat about your website’s multilingual future.

Legal translation

Some might say that the terminology used in legal documentation may as well be in another language for all the sense it makes to us mere mortals.  Let’s face it we need a translator to put it into layman’s terms in our own native tongue, so that we might be able to address the issue at hand.

So just think how much more challenging legal documentation in another language actually is.  Not only do you need to understand the language but also the law of that country and how it may differ from your own.  And the repercussions on your business or yourself should you interpret it incorrectly could be catastrophic.

We love a challenge
If you find yourself in this situation whether it is through business or a personal matter, professional help is only a click away via the Enigma Translation website.  At Enigma Translation we offer language translation in over 70 languages thanks to our team of over 2000 linguists worldwide.


The need for accuracy

As with all translation accuracy is paramount and legal translation is no different.  Which is why Enigma Translation ensures that your translator will not only be qualified in the source language, a native speaker of the target language, but also have expertise in the legal area concerning your translation requirements.

Business or Personal
We know legal proceedings can be confusing and stressful at the best of times, let alone in a different language or country, but by using our language translation service for your legal translation, you will feel fully in control of the situation and understand every word.

We’re fluent in:
• Civil law translation
• Commercial law translation
