Professional document translation you can count on
In a perfect world, “professional” translations would yield final documents that read as naturally and efficiently as their originals. Unfortunately, this isn’t always the case. Being a fluent, native speaker doesn’t make someone a translator, and the aftermath of poorly translated documents – or awkward, clumsy attempts – is bad for your brand image and professional reputation.
The professional translators working for us have collegiate-level degrees, niche industry expertise and are incredibly sensitive to the small print and details. This is why the translation teams at CCA guarantee their final products will exceed your expectations – and those of the client’s – every time.
We translate a myriad of document types, including:
- Government documents
- Corporate Communications
- Speeches and transcripts
- Slide Presentations
- Website and social media content
- Technical and training manuals
- Marketing materials
- Posters and signage
- And more
Each of these projects goes through three, separate tiers of translation, proofreading and editing – all overseen by one of our dedicated project managers.
Translating includes subtitling and transcription services
Want to capitalize on all those dollars spent on high-quality video shoots? CCA’s subtitling and transcription services are a way to exponentially increase ROI on marketing, training, demo and other video content – allowing you to use your videos across the international market.
Our translators will work with you to create accurate and branded transcripts and/or subtitles for virtually any language spoken on the planet. Because symbols and cultural preferences or impressions vary from culture to culture, we can also let you know if small edits here or there would make a more positive impact on target market(s) by ensuring your images/symbols/impressions shed the best light on your brand.
