Top Translation related questions

Translation is written communication which has been translated (from one language to another) to convey the same meaning. An interpreter translates speech for two or more parties in real time. Many translators and interpreters offer both services, depending on what’s required.

Most translators specialise in working with their primary language, plus one or two additional languages. Some common translation services include Italian to English, German to English, Tagalog to English, Chinese to English, English to Arabic, and many more. 

Most translation services are completed by uploading your document over a secure internet portal ready for translation. The translated version is then sent back to you by post or email, depending on your needs. There’s no need to meet your translator face to face.

Most translation services will provide your translated document within 5-7 working days, although shorter documents may be completed sooner. You can also pay extra for an express service if your task is urgent.

Although anyone can provide translation services, some private and government organisations require translations are completed by NAATI certified translators. Specialist translators often have extensive subject matter knowledge, along with cultural experience.

What does an English translation service include?

Human translators have advanced knowledge of technical information, cultural etiquette, and language nuances. They can ensure the correct meaning of your document is conveyed in the translated version. Here are some of the services you can engage a translator for:

Certificate or licence translation

If you’re an expat, sometimes the only way you can get your qualifications or certificates recognised is if you get them translated by a NAATI (National Authority for Translators and Interpreters in Australia) certified translator. They can translate high school or tertiary qualifications like diplomas and degrees, or birth, marriage, and divorce certificates. These certified translations will give you appropriate identification documents for legal matters, visa applications, drivers’ licences, or opening bank accounts in a new country. 

Legal translation

Legal translations are required for property transactions and global trade agreements. If you’re an exporter or working with products and services across multiple international markets, you’ll also need legal translation to make sure technical and product information is accurate when written in a country’s primary language. You should also get legal contracts, agreements, and digital messages translated, so you’re aware of any terms and conditions before signing important documents.

Medical translation

Used for the medical, pharmaceutical and veterinarian industries, medical translation is a specialised English translation service, where translators have extensive subject knowledge and understand medical terminology. This means that translated information is compliant, accurate, and able to be shared worldwide. Translations can include training materials, clinical information, and medical texts. For local use, medical translations can be helpful in clinics that service a multicultural base so that all patients can read important medical information in their native language.

Website and marketing translation

If you have global customers, they’ll likely want to read website and marketing material in their native language. You can request translation services for your website to include SEO, so it gets the most traction in your target market’s local Google search results. You can also ask your translator to translate marketing collateral like brochures, letters, or product labels. Content localisation takes your content one step further and connects with regional and cultural preferences.

Video and audio translation

If you need translation for video captions, voiceovers, or transcriptions, a translation and transcription expert can help. Whether it needs to be translated into English, Spanish, Bahasa, or another language, translation services can expand your reach to a wider audience. Your translation expert may also discuss ways to translate your material so you have a greater impact in the country you’re targeting.
