Translation & Localization

Going Beyond Accurate Translations

Yes, accuracy is essential for any translation. But it isn’t enough. An accurate translation lacking flow and clarity will most likely tire and annoy the reader. I always try to find the right balance between the information conveyed in the source text  and the client’s requirements, readers’ expectations and cultural specificities. In the end, my goal is to produce clear, elegant, culturally adapted and consistent translations. Each word and each phrase are placed in the right position to complete the puzzle of your message to your Romanian customers and prospects.

Translation Process and Tools

High quality translations require clear processes, team-work and efficient tools. Every translation task must undergo several stages, and each step requires a specific set of tools and resources. For full translation services (TEP) I team up with excellent Romanian translators and reviewers and I use the best tools on the market, including SDL Trados Studio, memoQ and ApSIC Xbench.
