What are translation services?

Translation services are professional services that specialise in translating written content from one language into another, for example, French, German, or Spanish into English. Generally, expert translation agencies can offer translations into several hundreds of languages for clients in all corporate, public and business sectors.

In today's globalised world, translation services are a crucial part of effective communication. Companies and organisations from practically all business sectors, such as healthcare, legal, marketing, financial or technical, use translations to reach worldwide markets and their international consumers.

By combining translation technology and tools such as Translation Memory or Artificial Intelligence with the expertise of native human translators, translation companies can today meet the most demanding requirements of their clients. Consequently, bridging linguistic barriers between your business and clients or partners in different parts of the world can be achieved using professional translation services.

What is the translation process?

The translation process is a procedure that allows translation companies to convert written materials from one language into another professionally.

The process may vary slightly depending on the type of content/documents you need to translate. For example, marketing materials may require additional proofreading by an independent translator to ensure the highest possible accuracy and print-ready quality.

Translation vs interpretation services

What's the difference between translations and interpreting?

The difference between translation and interpreting services is quite clear - whilst translation deals with written content, such as documents, websites or press releases, language interpreting covers spoken word during conferences, business meetings or video calls.

Although professional translators and interpreters must both speak the source & target languages at a native level, the set of skills required to complete these projects is very different. Fortunately, professional translation agencies, such as TS24, can offer both services to their clients.

How much do translation services cost?

Generally speaking, translation services cost between £0.08 - £0.14 + VAT per word. The price for a translation can vary, depending on several factors such as languages required, deadline, complexity and type of your documents or the intended use.

Whilst a certified document translation, which includes translation and the official certification, is generally priced at the minimum rate of £30 + VAT, more complex translations, for example - marketing campaigns, business documents or legal papers, are usually priced on a per-word basis. These documents may additionally require independent proofreading.

What is a Certified Translation?

A certified translation is an official translation of documents, such as birth certificates, marriage certificates, visa applications or academic papers, accompanied by a legalised certification and/or sworn statement of truth from an accredited provider. A professional translation agency such as TS24 can provide all types of certified translation services.
