18 Jul More Questions When you Need to Translate Documents in the UK(Last Updated On: July 13, 2018)
Using two, three or more foreign languages does not make a person a translator or interpreter ready to start translate documents in the UK.
Who can translate documents in the UK
A good translator is an artist, retaining the feel of a message as it moves from one language to another. He or she must understand the concept of the story, very often an unspoken story, which means he has to know that story in advance.
Somebody said a long time ago: “Knowing a foreign language is a science and, being a good translator (interpreter) is an art”. You better believe it is! Translating is about taught skills that enable what is said or written, within a certain culture and a particular area of human activity, to be expressed in another language. So the text is fully and correctly understood by the group for which it is intended. In order to gain this ability after learning basic language skills, it takes more years of experience and practice and continuous improvement and self education. So we can rightly say that bilingual or trilingual persons are not always good when it comes to translate documents in London.
If you need a translator, consider all this information and think seriously about hiring a translation company in London. Translation companies or agencies should have certified, experienced and educated translators and linguists. Your document or web site should be professionally produced, for sure.
Now, here is some advice about paying for translation.
What do you think? Is an expensive thing or a high price a guarantee for a good job or a product? Certainly not! When you are ordering translating languages from a renowned translator, you pay for the resources and the experience that the translator has been gaining for years, as well as the time he needs to translate your document or project, etc. In many cases you pay for the “name” of a company, advertising costs and the costs of running an agency and there is no direct connection with the quality of the work of their translators. So a high price does not mean that you should have high expectations.
But, also you must be careful with very low prices when you need to translate documents in the UK. That is probably a worse solution than the former one. If you get a much lower offer that means you will probably give your money to some student who needs some extra money but may not translate or represent you well! Always look for a certified translation agency which is great at translating languages!
