TRANSLATING DOCUMENTS

We adapt our offer to the specific needs of our clients, given the fact that in our service we translate text and content of all kinds aimed at a wide range of businesses. However, our real added value lies in the fact that we do highly specialised translations or in the translation of documents requiring controlled language.

Amendment and verification of documents

We correct and verify documents, and the experience of our team of experts together with the technological resources we have developed in the field of linguistics are our guarantee of quality. We place two kinds of corrections at our clients’ disposal:

  • Spelling and lexical correction. Spelling mistakes are detected and corrected, and the language used is checked to see that it complies with the standards and recommendations of the Royal Academy of the Basque Language, Euskaltzaindia and of the Terminology Committee
  • Updating texts. Texts written a long time ago may be obsolete. These cases are checked to see that they comply with current language standards and the opportune corrections are made, with regards to terminology and syntax.

TRANSLATING WEBSITES

Nowadays, multilingual websites becoming increasingly common, which clearly calls for multilingual management. There are a large variety of options for the dynamic maintenance of websites, however, our added value lies mainly in language control.

The translations done for our clients are stored in multilingual translation units so we are able to verify the constancy of all the languages used. Thanks to multilingual management, we can control the content of our clients’ websites more efficiently.
