Accutranslate offers Translation and Interpreting in all Languages
European and Asian languages
It can be difficult to find a company that has experience of translation and interpreting in all European and Asian languages. Our team has wide experience of translation and interpreting of English from and into major European languages such as French, Spanish, German, Portuguese, Italian, Polish, Czech and Russian.
We also offer translation from and into Asian languages including Chinese, Japanese, Malay, Urdu, Punjabi and more.
Translation and interpreting in all other languages
Over the years Accutranslate has handled assignments in many other languages including Hebrew, Bulgarian and Serbian. With our network of professional and experienced interpreters we can call on a wide range of other languages, including rarer languages, so contact us with details of your assignment.
Language variants and dialects
Many languages have variants and dialects such as South American or Castilian Spanish, Mandarin or Cantonese Chinese.
It is important to target your materials to the right audience and getting the language right is important.
However beautiful the translation, the effect will be lost if you have chosen the wrong dialect.
Just ask us if you are unsure about the best variant to choose, or if you have a regional language translation requirement – we can nearly always help!
How to get a quote for your translation
For most languages we can offer a quote on your translation or interpreting assignment within 2 working days, but it may take a little longer with rarer languages – give our friendly team a call with the specifics of your project, or fill in the enquiry form to learn more.
Translation and Interpreting in Arabic
Many of your clients in the Middle East may speak excellent English, however it would be discourteous to assume that they can “get by” without an interpreter, or that they have no need for translations of your documents.
However good your Arabic-speaking host or guest’s English is, the fact that you took the time and trouble to consider his needs and to provide translation of your main brochures, or an interpreter for meetings and social occasions will set you apart from your competitors.
Why take risks by presenting your information in English, or by going for a “cheap and cheerful” translation? If you cannot get your message across properly to your Arabic-speaking audience, or worse, your message is distorted by a poor translation, it is a false economy.
Remember also not to assume in regions like North America that French will “do” for your communications. Take a little extra time and trouble to find out which language/s are most comfortable for your clients in the region, then come to Accutranslate for a quality translation!
When hosting guests from the Middle East or North Africa, consider providing an interpreter for business meetings and social events that you have arranged. Make your guests feel at home in the UK by showing that you have considered their needs.
Getting a quote for Arabic Translation and Interpreting
Accutranslate would be happy to provide a quote for translation or interpreting from Arabic to English or from English to Arabic. Contact our team for more details.
Chinese Translation and Interpreting for Good Communication
Trade with China is increasingly important – who can afford to ignore a market of 1.35 bn people?
Whether you are looking to attract inward Chinese investment or to export to China, good quality translation and interpreting will help you to communicate with your Chinese counterparts.
Chinese Translation and Interpreting for inward investment
To encourage Chinese businesses to invest in your town or region, translation of your documents and website into Mandarin Chinese or Cantonese is a must. Many organisations are not prepared to invest in quality translations – they either provide materials in English, or poor-quality translations that give a correspondingly poor impression of their offer.
With so many places to choose from in the UK, and across Europe, your potential Chinese investors are looking for an area that is welcoming, making the process of working with them as easy as possible. Help your town or region to attract Chinese investors by providing good quality, well-translated materials.
Accutranslate is happy to quote for translation of your website or marketing materials into Chinese, helping you bring employment to your area.
Chinese Translation and Interpreting for exporters
Many of Manchester’s textile and other manufacturing industries are finding that the Chinese market presents an excellent opportunity for expansion, and that the key to good relationships is communication. The same is true for our clients across many sectors – making it easy to deal with your company is the cornerstone of success.
Accutranslate can support your efforts in the Chinese market by interpreting in business meetings, and by providing translations that will win the hearts and minds of your potential Chinese clients.
Don’t leave your success in this booming market to chance – come to Accutranslate for your Chinese translation and interpreting!
The Russian Market
Russia is a new market for many of our clients, but an important one, as the expanding Russian middle class flexes its spending power.
The number of Russians who speak English is only about 6% of the population. This is higher among the internationally-minded community, but the standard of English varies, and it is important not to rely on the language skills of your Russian counterparts too heavily. As with all business, the easier you make it to do business with you, the more likely people are to work with you. Providing good quality, accurate Russian translation of your website, technical documents and marketing materials makes it easier for you to get access to this expanding market.
Russian Translation and Interpreting
When planning expansion to the East, it is really important to allow a budget for quality Russian translation and interpreting. Cutting corners at the start up stage can lead to missed opportunities. It is never a good idea to skimp on translation when approaching a new market, but this is particularly so in the case of Russia, where younger people are likely to have some English schooling, but older people may have had less exposure to the West in their youth.
The Best Spanish Translation and Interpreting
Doing business in Spain or South America? Unsure about how to get the best possible Spanish Translation and Interpreting? Look no further – Accutranslate offers a team of Spanish linguists who offer a variety of dialects and sector skills to ensure your dealings in Spanish-speaking countries are a success!
Castilian Spanish Translation and Interpreting
Castilian Spanish is the term for Spanish as spoken in mainland Spain and used in broadcasting. The term European Spanish is also used to cover the same linguistic area. The main thing you need to be aware of as a client is that South American Spanish has differences to European Spanish, and can vary from country to country, in much the same way as UK English and US English differ. If you are dealing with Spain, Argentina or Mexico the language will vary.
Rather than making mistakes or getting a single translation done in the hope that it will serve you everywhere, talk to our team about how translations made for your specific geographic targets can help you serve your clients in the different countries better.
Spanish Translation and Interpreting for South America
Several members of our Spanish Translation and Interpreting team hail from South America, giving us a unique insight into doing business in the region. Naturally, the language is a key part of this, but our familiarity with the local way of doing business and customs also proves invaluable to our clients.
Why Good French Translation and Interpreting is Crucial
France is one of the UK’s main trading partners, accounting for around £19 bn of exports annually. In addition, there are another 30 countries where French is an official language.
Some of these French-speakers may speak English also, but it is incorrect to assume that this will be sufficient for business meetings or legal situations.
French translation and interpreting for business
The worst problem for UK firms dealing with French suppliers or clients is that language difficulties can lead to confusion or to delay. There are many “false friends” – words that seem similar to English words, but which are different, giving rise to potential miscommunications. Dealing with French businesses need not be difficult if you have access to the professional translation and interpreting team at Accutranslate. We are familiar with French business practices and customs, and can help you communicate easily with your business contacts.
From translation of a French brochure or business letter to interpreting at meetings, Accutranslate can smooth the way to a swifter and more productive business relationship with your colleagues in France.
French legal interpreting and translation
However good a French-speaker’s English skills are, being a witness or defendant in a court case is a very stressful and difficult situation, that even a native speaker would find challenging. For a non-native speaker this is amplified by lack of familiarity with our legal process.
There are many examples of court cases that have foundered due to poor interpreting and translation – at worst a miscarriage of justice may result. To avoid any potential mishaps it is vital to get a good translation of all legal documents and to ensure that the interpreting is of the highest standard.
Do you need to provide German Translation and Interpreting?
Surely all Germans speak good English? Germany is a main UK trading partner and many UK companies may feel that “all German speak good English, so there is no need for us to make provision for German translation and interpreting”. In fact, this is far from the case.
Although languages are more commonly taught in Germany than in the UK, which language your German counterparts have learned at school may depend on whether they were closer to France or if they were educated in the former East Germany. Even if they do speak English, having good German translations of your materials, or an interpreter, can allow your German counterparts to relax when doing business with you – at the least, it shows consideration for them.
German Translation and Interpreting helps your business relationships run smoothly
By providing good German translations of your business materials, you help your business stand out as being genuinely committed to your German market. Business benefits include a positive impression of your business, better understanding of who you are and what you offer, and differentiating your company from the many UK businesses who are not prepared to invest in quality German translations and interpreting.
Experienced Japanese Translation and Interpreting
Accutranslate has more than 20 years’ experience of Japanese translation and interpreting. We work with businesses who have Japanese staff, agencies looking to attract inward investment from Japan, and with individuals who are settling into life in the UK.
Japanese people learn English from kindergarten through to university, and some are very confident and fluent English speakers. However, the general rule is that Japaneses business people will be less confident in their language skills than their counterparts from European countries. To compound the potential problem they are less likely to admit to difficulties in understanding your presentation or brochure.
If you want to be sure that your message is correctly received and understood, then you will understand the value of investing in professional Japanese translation and interpreting.
Even if you are unable to translate all your materials into Japanese, developing a simple explanation of the key points of your proposition, then translating it into Japanese will be well received. Equally, translating the main pages of your website into Japanese shows courtesy and respect to your Japanese audience.
Some Japanese visitors will have studied or worked abroad (you may need an interpreter yourselves to understand their broad American accents!). However, many others are hesitant in speaking and will feel more comfortable in business and social situations if you provide a Japanese interpreter to help them.
For all your Japanese Translation and interpreting needs Accutranslate is happy to help. Contact our helpful team to explain your requirements, and let us delight your Japanese prospects!
