Do Your Linguists Have Sector-Specific Experience?

In this blog post, we’re taking a closer look at the sector-specific experience we require from all of our terrific translators while working with a translations agency.

The voice behind my translations agency?

We work with a wide range of professional translators, each with unique experience in the language industry. When a talented linguist applies to work with our translations agency, we make sure to identify their areas of expertise and key translation skills. 

With this in mind, we assign every project to a highly qualified and experienced translator who understands the importance of subject and sector-specific content. This approach gives our clients the ideal match for their particular translation requirements.

Extensive Network of Professional Translators

Our network encompasses translators from various backgrounds, cultures, and industries. This diversity allows us to match your project with a translator who has the necessary language skills and a deep understanding of the subject matter.

By working with a team of professional translators, we can guarantee that your project will receive the attention and expertise it deserves. Our translators are committed to delivering translations that meet the highest quality, accuracy, and cultural sensitivity standards.

Specialised Expertise and Skills

We assign your translation project to a translator who fully understands the specific terminologies and nuances of the content they are working on. Our translations agency linguists are adept at maintaining the source material’s tone, style, and context while ensuring accuracy and cultural appropriateness in the target language.

Whether you need legal, medical, technical, or creative translation services, we have translators on our team who specialise in these areas.

What sector-specific experience can my translator help me with?

We know that a one-size-fits-all approach doesn’t cut it in the world of translation. That’s why we ensure our translators only work in their specialist areas, with top-notch results. 

You may want to grow your business abroad and need a localisation expert with marketing experience. Or maybe you’re translating critical legal documents and need a linguist with a background in the field.

Whatever you’re looking for, even if we haven’t touched on it in this blog post, we’ll match you with the perfect translator for your needs.

Global Expansion

For businesses looking to expand into foreign markets, localisation is crucial. It involves adapting a product or service to a specific market, considering cultural nuances, preferences, and language variations. Our translators specialising in localisation have an in-depth understanding of the target market and can help ensure your content resonates with the local audience.

Marketing Strategies

Marketing translation requires fluency in multiple languages and a deep understanding of global cultural differences and marketing strategies. Our translators have the expertise to adapt your marketing and advertising materials for different markets, ensuring your messaging remains impactful and engaging.

Legal Issues

Legal documents often contain complex and highly specific terminology that requires precise translation. Our translators specialising in legal documents have the background knowledge and expertise to translate legal texts accurately, ensuring that every detail is correctly conveyed.

Atlas Translations has a diverse team of translators who specialise in various areas. What does that mean for you? It means we can provide translation services for a wide range of industries, not just those mentioned above.

What languages does your translations agency support?

Sector-specific knowledge isn’t the only way we make sure your translation ticks all the right boxes. Aside from having specialist knowledge, we also ensure that our linguists only ever work in their native tongue – keeping the translation process as accurate as possible.

Native Tongue Linguists

A key factor that sets us apart from other translation agencies is our commitment to working with native speaker linguists. So, if you need a document translated from English into Spanish, we assign a native Spanish speaking translator. Working with native speakers guarantees that translations are grammatically accurate and linguistically and culturally sensitive. 

Our linguists have a deep understanding of the idiomatic expressions, wordplay, and cultural norms of their respective languages. This enables them to deliver translations that feel natural and authentic to the target audience.

Accurate and Culturally Sensitive Translations

Accuracy is paramount in translation, especially when conveying meaning from one language to another. Our translators undergo a rigorous selection process to prove comprehensive linguistic knowledge. This ensures that every translation accurately reflects the intent and message of the source text.

To guarantee culturally sensitive translations, our linguists have expertise in the target language. Additionally, they have a deep understanding of the cultural context in which the translation will be read or used. They consider cultural differences, local customs, and social nuances, adapting the translation to resonate with the target audience.

The pairing of translation and culture is a theme that we at Atlas Translations pride ourselves on. Sector-specific work demands accurate translation, crossing all requirements off your list and avoiding potential issues moving forward.
