What We Do

Document Translation

When we say ‘we do translations’ very often people think of a one-page document translated directly from one language to another.

In reality, our translation services include everything from market research surveys to PPC ads and ecommerce websites, as well as interpreting, voice overs and transcription. What’s more is that these services are adaptable to suit your requirements – whether you need a court interpreter or a linguist with the correct medical knowledge to interpret at a medical appointment, we provide the services and solutions to suit you. We’re also happy to translate those one page documents.
As we translate in over 150 languages and 400+ language combinations from across the globe, we’re the first port of call for ambitious businesses looking to compete in a global market.

We’re fast, accurate and competitively priced too with technologies, such as TMS, machine learning and AI, in place to ensure efficiency and quality are never compromised. We’re also global, with bases across the world and a network of 6,000+ talented worldwide translators available 24/7. So no matter where you are, Tradmil will be there too. Just a few of the reasons why our global translation services are hard to beat.

Proofreading

Delivering end to end quality in all translations.

Our translation services also offer proofreading, which is means checking the translated document against your source file. This offers you or your client additional peace of mind, safe in the knowledge that a second experienced translator has reviewed the translation checking it against the source file for accuracy, spelling, and integrity.

We’re happy to proofread any document, even if we didn’t translate it for you. All our proofreaders are in-country linguists with mother tongue command of the target language and fluency in the source language.

We strongly recommend proofreading as part of your translation process, to verify content, localised style and clarity. And to ensure consistency with your in-house style and terminology, we’ll ask for reference materials such as previous translations, style guides and glossaries.

The quality of every proofreading project we work on is benchmarked against ISO-approved quality control procedures. This means we run spelling, grammar, punctuation, formatting and completeness checks as standard.

Desktop Publishing

Presenting your communications globally

You have your translations, now what? We provide a desktop publishing service to ensure your documents look and ‘feel’ right, in whatever target language and format.

Using your existing artwork template, or working with you to create a localised version, we remove the burden of dealing with formatting in foreign languages and scripts. This ensures that the text is presented in a polished format as good as the original.

The changes and local nuances we can manage on your behalf include:

  • Word swells: Document length can expand by up to 25% when translated into another language
  • Line spacing: Asian languages such as Japanese and Korean use less vertical space than Latin characters so the separating distance between lines may need to be adjusted
  • Page layouts: Languages such as Arabic and Hebrew are written right-to-left and so require completely modified page layouts
  • Numerical formats: Localised use of currency, date and time
  • Punctuation formats
  • Fonts and character sets across languages and platforms
  • Orthography and capitalisation of letters, depending on the language

Our multilingual artworkers work in all major software for Mac and PC, including the full Adobe suite and QuarkXPress. It means your finished document will be translated and presented perfectly for your target audience.

Transcreation

Keeping your marketing messaging consistent worldwide

What is transcreation?

Transcreation – sometimes referred to as creative translation or international copywriting – is the creative adaptation of your advertising and marketing message so it appeals to different markets, but still keeps the spirit, style and emotion of your original copy.

It’s not a straight translation. In fact, it’s often not a translation at all. It’s creative copywriting for websites, PPC, campaigns and more by experienced writers who understand the language, the culture and the local market place inside-out. So you get unique copy that’s different from the original but retains the essence of your brand message.

Why big brands choose Tradmil

Tradmil’s worldwide transcreation team consists of specialist, creative copywriters and experienced marketers, who will work closely with you to understand the mood, message and audience.

Our linguists are native speakers, located in-market to guarantee expertise in local culture as well as language. So they know all the nuances and quirky sayings. They also have experience in your sector and recognise the right terminology to use. This means your audience has the same experience of your brand – whether they’re in New York or New Delhi.

We also invest in the technology, be it TMS, machine translation or AI, that enables us to create time and cost efficiencies without compromising on the highest quality work of our global linguists. When it comes to transcreation and content, such technology is key in enabling us to support our clients in navigating the intricacies in producing, managing and updating high volume of content without breaking the bank.

Localization Services (Websites, Applications and Software)

Adapting your content to the right audience.

The essence of internationalisation is the ability to take a localised approach driven by a content-strategy from which market-relevant copy can be developed. When translating content and campaigns for new markets, it’s vital that you speak directly to the consumer; that you adapt your communications to suit not only their language but also their culture and local nuances.

Localisation refines your content to create instant customer empathy and reassurance, allowing your core messages to be heard loud and clear. So if you’re launching a product in South America, we speak the Spanish that’s used in each of the 19 different countries.

Why our clients choose our localisation services.

Our localisation processes are designed to tactically support brands to create relevant material for each target locale. We advise on important elements such as language in addition to colour, use of images and iconography, and compliance with local advertising regulation.

Over the past 17 years we have nurtured an extensive network of native linguists, copywriters, editors who aren’t only skilled in language, but also have industry experience. as a results our ability to scale our services to a consistently high standard continues to grow, having exceeded 72M words translated last year.

We combine linguistic ability and industry expertise with the technology that enables us to create time and cost efficiencies for our clients whist maintaining the highest possible quality service. Our technological investments in TMS, machine translation and AI technology support and elevate the work of our global linguists, balancing human skill and machine-enabled efficiencies.

Our capabilities are underpinned by our passion for what we do. We are driven by a desire to see our clients succeed in their global ambitions, and we are proud to be part of each of their journeys.
