Translation

Translation

To translate your book to the highest standard, I follow a three-step translation process aligned with my quality control procedure:

Step 1. Analysing your manuscript

As an initial step, I carefully analyse your document in order to:

  • Identify the type of text, the genre, its features, characteristics, register, tone and style.
  • Identify the purpose of the text and the audience.

Step 2. Translating the content

Once the purpose and target audience are identified I start translating your content. In order to produce a smooth and accurate translation which brings you results I:

  • Use my analytical skillsto choose the most suitable translation strategies.
  • Use my research skillsto select the most appropriate terminology, find relevant parallel texts, linguistic corpora tools, and specialised dictionaries.
  • Use my IT skillsto ensure consistency and time efficiency.
  • Use my linguistic skillsto communicate your message effectively and in a natural way.
  • Use my common senseto make sure the text is appropriate for the intended audience according to the purpose.

Step 3. Polishing the translation and delivering on time

Once the translation is completed, and as a quality control procedure, I carry out the final polishing where I:

  • Proofread the text at least twice to ensure accuracy and readability (a quality procedure known as translator-revised translation).
  • Edit and polish the final document to enhance naturalness (known as translator revised and additionally polished translation for publication).

I then deliver on time.

With this three-step process you can rest assured that your translation will be of the highest quality. You can relax knowing that I only accept translation work that I know I can translate to the highest standard.

Do you have a particular project that you would like to discuss? Get in touch.

Given my background, qualifications, and personal interests, most of the projects I work on are in the fields of yoga, spirituality, and personal development.

Don’t despair if your text is about a different subject. I have worked on projects as diverse as inspirational fiction and non-fiction books on Psychology or Buddhism, for example. Contact me. I’ll do my best to help you.

If the project is outside my own area of expertise I'll let you know and I’ll be happy to refer you to someone who is better placed to meet your requirements.
