Native Translations What we do We at NT specialise in translating, proofreading and editing business related documents from Latvian and Russian to English and vice versa. Our main focus is on translations into the English language. Our scope of work includes: • Company literature, brochures • Web sites • Tourism information • Business plans, proposals and letters • Business contracts and agreements • Advertising and PR texts • Tender applications, etc. All documents are translated, proofread or edited by native speakers of the target language. Our Aim Our aim is to produce translated documents in various media for public or private consumption that comply with linguistic and cultural conventions of the target readership. This helps our clients to get across their message in a correct and effective way. Our Services We accept material sent to us either via e-mail or fax; and normally work with Microsoft Word or any other compatible programme. Translations Translation orders are completed as they are received, limited to a maximum volume of 5 pages a client per day translated. Variations of this, such as a rush order and texts to be translated via other media are accepted on a consultative basis. Proofreading and editing We proofread and edit existing translated texts, especially if the source text is available. We define proofreading as the correction of so called typos, such as minor spelling mistakes and omissions. Editing, on the other hand, will involve rewriting or retranslating sentences and parts of the existing translation. Proof–reading of texts that we have translated is at no additional cost. As stated, our aim is to produce translations using native phrase, terminology and structure where applicable. However, we are aware that some clients wish to have their source text terminology, phrases and style translated literally. We are willing to do this as long as the client is aware that conventions of one language do not always make sense in another. Where specific terminology, unusual language usage or difficult cross-cultural differences are involved, we consult with the client. Assessments We offer free a page of English or Latvian translations per client for assessment. This free sample page may be an actual page or a web page.
