Our Philosophy

Translation is not just converting words or phrases from one language into another.  It is the part-science, part-art craft of writing freely, tapping into the full expressive power of human language, to convey ideas from a source language and culture, in a different language and culture.

Because a translator’s audience is different from the audience of the author, translators must adapt the information to a different set of circumstances.

This requires:

  • Understanding what the author’s goals are and making sure they are well served
  • Preserving no just the content, but the spirit of each text
  • Making sure the information is culturally appropriate and geared towards the reader
  • Writing at the right literacy level and style for each target audience

This is where machine translation fails.

And this is what we specialize in.
