A translation is the transfer of a written text (source text) into another language (target language). The transfer is a skill in itself which has to be acquired. It is not simply a question of being able to speak several languages at a high level. Your texts are the linguistic representation of your organisation. Therefore, you should entrust your texts to real professionals – you will notice the difference!
In order to guarantee excellent quality translations, I usually work according to the double-checking principle by collaborating with at least one other colleague (translation + revision by a second translator). In addition, at least one of the translators is native in the translation’s target language. This ensures that your translations sound as if written in the target language.
As an Austrian language service provider, I am able to provide your translations into German according to either the Austrian or German standard, depending on your requirements.
In the course of the translation process, various steps may be necessary which I gladly undertake for you. These include:
I offer translations in the following language combinations:
My focus is on translations of expressive texts, i.e. texts that require high linguistic sensitivity, such as marketing or literary texts. My specialist subject areas are tourism, art and culture, politics, environment amongst others. I also offer translations in subject areas such as law (certified translations), business and engineering.
Where appropriate and depending on the source text and format, your translations are completed using a CAT tool (computer-aided translation) to ensure a consistent style and terminology. I am highly skilled with SDL Trados Studio and memoQ, though I will gladly work with other tools on request.
If you already have existing translations or terminology lists in an appropriate format, these can be imported into the CAT tool so that the terminology and style of the existing translations can be taken into account for the new translation.
Excellent quality requires a fair price. Therefore, I calculate my prices according to the Translation Rates recommended by the Austrian Association of Translators and Interpreters UNIVERSITAS. Prices depend on the text’s length and degree of specialisation. Send your text to firstname.lastname@example.org to receive a quote.
