Our Services

Abridging and Abstracting

We offer our Abridging and Abstracting service
to condense, or summarise, an existing text.

Atlas Translations have provided a variety of services for Alzheimer’s Society, including the translation of our flagship information resource ‘Worried about your memory?’ into a variety of different languages. The service we have received is consistently to high standard, with staff going beyond the call of duty to fulfil our requirements. I will definitely be using this translation agency again, and would recommend them to anyone looking for top quality translation services.

Alzheimer's Society

You have been such a help and we can’t thank you enough. We’re getting an amazing response. It is quite a challenge, but we wouldn’t be making our deadlines without your translation agency’s assistance. Many many thanks.

BBC

Atlas completed the work within our time frame and the proofreading service gave us the extra peace of mind that the translations were accurate and of quality.

It’s tough when you have to rely on a translation agency and trust that the translations are correct but with Atlas, we can rest assured that the language, tone, and style of translation is suitable for our audiences.

Atlas provided us with a high quality, professional, courteous and competitively priced service, with a minimum of fuss. I was pleased with the translation agency’s communications and would not hesitate to use them again in the future.

Do you need to shorten a lengthy technical translation? There are a lot of reasons you may need our abridging and abstracting service. A text may need to be abridged for a number of reasons. It may not be economical to publish it in its current form, perhaps you are preparing a text for translation and need to shorten it; it could be too long for the requirements of a new market, some sections may be unnecessary, or the writing style longwinded.

For an instant price, use the Live Chat box, during UK business hours, to chat with a real person. Or give us a call on 01727 812 725. If your document is ready now you can email it direct to team@atlas-translations.co.uk for a quotation today.

We will work to cut your text by structural editing and rewriting. We can reduce text to your required word or page count. We welcome any instructions regarding house style.

This service is charged at an hourly rate, depending on language and subject area.

We can either abridge your text on screen, and provide you with a file where the amendments are marked using track changes, or we can deliver a final version of the text. We work in many formats and in most software packages – we can deliver files by e-mail, and on disk/CD.

We work on various media including: abstracts, books, calendars and diaries, catalogues, CD ROMs, conference materials, corporate publications, databases, dictionaries, directories and yearbooks, distance-learning materials, educational materials, encyclopaedias, exhibition catalogues, e-zines, hotel guides, language course materials, leaflets, magazines, manuals, maps and atlases, menus, newsletters, newspapers, online materials, phrasebooks, posters, press releases, theatre programmes, prospectuses, company reports, slide presentations, league tables, dissertations, training materials, travel guides, websites.
