sepWhat's the difference between translation and interpreting?

Translation is an activity whereby a text in one language is transformed into a text in another language. Translations are usually written. By contrast, interpreting involves transforming speech in one language into speech in another language.  Interpreting, therefore, is the oral equivalent of written translation.

sepEveryone speaks English nowadays, so why do I need a professional interpreter?

Everyone has a talent for something. However, if you want to make a career out of your talent, you'll need to be highly-skilled, and this requires special training. However, despite the fact that a lot of people can make themselves understood in English, there are a multitude of situations where the necessary level of comprehension and expression can only be achieved by a professional. Misunderstandings and uncomfortable situations can therefore be avoided by hiring an interpreter. Besides, is English the only language spoken in the world?

sepWhen will I receive my translated documents?

This depends on length, difficulty and how specialised the document is. We will, however, set a deadline that will be met without fail. All of the factors present in the translation process will be taken into account in order to deliver a faithful and high-quality translation in the shortest possible time.
