How is confidentiality of information is performed?

The condition of confidentiality is usually written in contract with the Client. If the Client would like, it’s possible to sign additional agreement of confidentiality with a translator, who will work on the project.

How could I make sure that a translator will make a quality translation?

Before ordering a translation, you will personally meet with a translator. During such meetings everything becomes clear. You are welcome to ask for documents, which prove his qualification, if it is still not enough, a translator can show the recommendations of the Clients.

How is the price of the whole translation made?

The price first of all depends on amount of pages of target language text. The cost is counted according to symbols of target language text (always). One page contains 1800 symbols, including spaces (to count yourself – use menu “Service”, submenu “Statistics” in Microsoft Word). Besides the amount of pages and symbols, the complexity of proofing and editing is also considered: illustrations in the text, tables, text inside tables and illustrations. Literary and specific field proofing and editing are not additionally paid, as it is a part of our job – to provide you with translation completed. Don’t forget urgent translations are more expensive.

What do terms of translation depend on?

First of all it depends on amount and complexity of the material. As a rule we need 2-4 days to translate small amounts (15 pages and less). We are ready to translate up to 100 pages a week, but you should consider the order of other Clients. If you think, you’ll need a translation soon, it’s better to order one in advance. When you need to translate a bi amount of text the prepayment is necessary.

Do you provide interpreter services, if my meeting is just for 30 minutes?

Yes, sure. The interpreting is performed with the same quality regardless of the mass of work.

If there are numbers in the texts are they considered as symbols too?

Is it true, when translating from one language into the other, the volume of text can increase?
