What is translation?

Translation is the process of converting text or speech from one language to another. It is a complex process that requires a deep understanding of both languages, as well as the ability to convey the meaning of the original text accurately and fluently.

Different types of translation services

There are many different types of translation services available, each with its own purpose and benefits. Here are some of the most common types of translation services:

  • Individual linguist: This is the most basic type of translation service. A single linguist will translate the text from one language to another. This type of service is often used for short documents or for documents that do not require a high level of accuracy.
  • Dual linguist: This type of translation service involves two linguists working together. One linguist translates the text from the original language, and the other linguist reviews the translation for accuracy. This type of service is often used for more complex documents or for documents that require a high level of accuracy.
  • CAT tools: CAT tools (computer-assisted translation tools) are software programs that can help linguists translate text more efficiently. CAT tools can provide linguists with translation memories, glossaries, and other resources that can help them to translate the text more accurately and fluently.
  • Terminology management: Terminology management is the process of creating and maintaining a database of terms that are used in a particular industry or field. This database can be used by linguists to ensure that they use the correct terms when translating text.
  • Machine translation: Machine translation is the use of software to translate text from one language to another. Machine translation is often used for short, simple documents. However, machine translation is not always accurate, and it is important to have a human linguist review the translation for accuracy.
  • Post-edited machine translation: Post-edited machine translation is a type of translation service that uses machine translation as a starting point. A human linguist then reviews the machine-translated text and makes corrections to ensure that it is accurate and fluent.
  • Transcreation: Transcreation is a type of translation service that goes beyond simply translating text from one language to another. Transcreation involves adapting the text to a different culture and audience. This can involve making changes to the text to make it more relevant and appealing to the target audience.

How to choose the right translation service
