Americanisation

Translation into…. American? That’s Americanisation! And yes, Anglicisation and Australianisation services are also available

We offer a full range of global translation services – and that does include Americanisation. They just speak English, right, with a few funny spellings? Well, not quite.

It is worth establishing whether your audience and recipients of your document would prefer British or American terminology, as although many US terms may be understood by a British person and vice versa others may cause confusion and a need for time to be spent on further explanations or clarifications.

Americanisation is the task of adapting a text for the American market, taking into account the difference in style, terminology and vocabulary of the text. Any tables, figures, numbers, names, abbreviations, punctuation, conversions etc. will also be verified.

A few examples of different uses of terms:

We charge by the hour for Americanisation. Please contact us for a quotation as each project is considered individually. We always confirm all costs in writing.

All of our Americanisation work is completed by qualified, professional and experienced writers. They also specialise in many areas, such as medicine, law or computing, which means that we can match your project with an appropriate, experienced writer.

If any reference material or a glossary of terms is available to help with the consistency of style and vocabulary, this is always appreciated.

We also provide an Anglicisation and Australianisation service. Contact us for more details.

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, as well as into Braille for partially sighted. 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 them again, and would recommend them to anyone looking for top quality translation services.

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 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 company 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.
