Professional Translation and Interpreting Services

We are Humans

Against the reality in which everything tends to be automated, we believe (and we can certainly prove it) that translators and interpreters’ work implies much more than simply substituting words in one language for words in another. That is why we manage each project individually and personally.

We, the professionals in elem TRANSLATES, are convinced that we should be greatly committed to the work of translating and adapting any material into other language. Communication should be precise and needs to truly deliver the message; a goal not so easy achieved. We believe that relevant knowledge, both linguistic and cultural is required, as well as a good teamwork, responsibility and high quality standards. For this we carry out a process which implies the material is read by different people in order to guarantee objective corrections, fluidity, coherence and cohesion.

Our process

When receiving the material to be translated, we thoroughly assess it and clear up all doubts and peculiarities the project may have. We produce a quotation which, in less than 24 hours, is sent to the client, including fees and details of best turnaround. When client accepts and confirms the project, depending on fields of expertise, languages or format and design complexity, the team or individual professional is designated. All the material that will help and guide the professional in the translation is prepared and sent through e-mail to the translator, including all the details of the project. Turnaround is confirmed and the translator begins work.

Once translation is completed by the translator who has experience in the field and peculiarities of the material and who has delivered a translation reviewed in time and form; the material is sent to a second professional, who compares source and target in order to correct possible errors.

Once the first proofreading is finished, proofreaders make a final revision directly in the target language text. This way, we correct any typing mistakes, as well as grammatical and syntactical errors, so that it reads fluently.

Then, depending on the project requirements, material might be sent to editing, or directly to the client.

    The most relevant issue with any provider is to be understood. And what does this mean? To be understood is the peculiar combination of things by which you say: “send the work to elemtranslates" and you can go on with your own work.
