Hire Freelance English Translators for Your Proejcts

English translation involves converting written material from another language to English. A freelance English translator ensures that the final translated version clearly conveys the meaning of the original content. They rewrite sentences that retain the style and structure of the original meaning while maintaining the facts and concepts. It is also important that the English language experts properly convey any cultural references and expressions that cannot be translated literally. English translators may also provide trans-creating services. These include translation, copywriting and localization, with the goal of linguistically and culturally adapting the text.

English Translation Services

English translators can work on technical, business, scientific, legal and academic written materials. These may be in the format of books, reports, letters, articles and other work that need to be translated to English.

As a part of their job, professional English translators:

  • Use English translation software such as Transit NXT, Across, Wordfast, SDL Trados, and memoQ, to maintain efficiency and translation consistency.

  • Use specialist books, dictionaries, thesauruses, lexicons, online terminology banks and encyclopedias for reference to ensure accuracy.

  • Research technical, legal or scientific phraseology to ensure proper translation.

  • Consult with subject matter experts.

  • Proofread and edit the final translated versions.

  • Review text and even confer with authors to ensure that while translating to English, the meaning, context and content of the original text remains the same.

  • Compile information and terminology to use in translations. This includes technical terms (for medical, legal or scientific materials).

Today, most English translators use computer-assisted translation tools that rely on a database of Translation Memories. Such programs make the work more efficient and consistent.

English language experts also adapt to the reader’s cognitive and grade levels. They are required to follow ethical standards protecting confidentiality at different levels. It is best to hire freelancers who are native English speakers or use it as their prime communication language.
