What Translation, Interpreting and Language services Do?

Interpreting is a translational activity in which one produces a first and final translation on the basis of a one-time exposure to an expression in a source language.

The most common two modes of interpreting are simultaneous interpreting, which is done at the time of the exposure to the source language, and consecutive interpreting, which is done at breaks to this exposure.

Interpreting is an ancient human activity which predates the invention of writing. However, the origins of the profession of interpreting date back to less than a century ago.

Research into the various aspects of the history of interpreting is quite new.[3] For as long as most scholarly interest was given to professional conference interpreting, very little academic work was done on the practice of interpreting in history, and until the 1990s, only a few dozen publications were done on it.[4]

Considering the amount of interpreting activities that is assumed to have occurred for thousands of years, historical records are limited.[5] Moreover, interpreters and their work have usually not found their way into the history books.[6] One of the reasons for that is the dominance of the written text over the spoken word (in the sense that those who have left written texts are more likely to be recorded by historians).[3][4] Another problem is the tendency to view it as an ordinary support activity which does not require any special attention,[4] and the social status of interpreters, who were sometimes treated unfairly by scribeschroniclers and historians.[note 1][3]

Our knowledge of the past of interpreting tends to come from?letters, chronicles,?biographies,?diaries?and?memoirs, along with a variety of other?documents?and?literary works, many of which (and with few exceptions) were only incidentally or marginally related to interpreting

How Much Does a Document Translation Service Cost?

Compare Document Translation Prices

Document translation is the process by which the source language of an original document is professionally and accurately translated to a different target language. Translation services are essential to helping the global economy go round. It is a necessary and effective solution for addressing language barriers in a variety of situations (i.e. medical and/or legal documents).

About Document Translation

The steps that reputable translation companies take to provide quality document translation usually involve several action items from start to finish. Once the original document requiring translation is reviewed and translated to the desired language, it must then also be correctly reformatted.

A thorough editing process is invaluable in order that the final translated document meets all correct format standards. Any final editing should be done by someone other than the original translator. Some of the top translation services certify the quality of translated documents by having an individual fluent in the target language complete a final editorial review.

Document Translation Service Average Costs

There are enormous variations in cost for document translation service. The target language, size and complexity of a document, turn around time, and the quality of the source text are a few of the most important considerations in terms of pricing.

On average, expect to pay?$30 to $125 per page,?depending on the document type and the target language but Novatia translation has helped to reduce the cost to between $23- $100 and even provide below the rate given by any translation services due to the large volumes they do on a daily basis. (5,000NGN- 10,000NGN)
  • The most common pricing method and industry standard is determined by a cost per word basis. On average, expect to pay?$0.08 to $0.40 per word.?(This typically applies to the number of source words and not target language word counts.)
  • It is common for companies to charge higher fees for languages with more complex translation demands.
  • Some translation services charge extra fees for proofreading and editing services.
  • Rush translation jobs typically incur charges 25% to 50% higher than regular rates.

What are translation and interpretation services?

Translation is the communication of the meaning of a source-language text by means of an equivalent target-language text.The English language draws a terminological distinction (not all languages do) between translating (a written text) and interpreting (oral or sign-language communication between users of different languages); under this distinction, translation can begin only after the appearance of writing within a language community.

A translator always risks inadvertently introducing source-language wordsgrammar, or syntax into the target-language rendering. On the other hand, such “spill-overs” have sometimes imported useful source-language calques and loanwords that have enriched target languages. Translators, including early translators of sacred texts, have helped shape the very languages into which they have translated.

Because of the laboriousness of the translation process, since the 1940s efforts have been made, with varying degrees of success, to automate translation or to mechanically aid the human translator. More recently, the rise of the Internet has fostered a world-wide market for translation services and has facilitated “language localization“.

Types of Translation :

  1. General Translations: These are more basic translations where no experience is required of any country language besides native language in order to do the translation.
  2. Commercial Translation: Commercial translation is similar to business translation, in which translation of documents is done such as company accounts, letters, annual report and Business documents.
  3. Medical Translations: Medical Translation has a huge no of categories. They can include anything from drug dosages and cautionary information about the use of a drug to descriptions of medical devices. This translation needs proper documentation.
  4. Literary Translations: This translation is different as compared to other translations. This mainly included poetic communication function of books, article, stories etc. They should also have prior knowledge of documents. Literary translation requires a lot of skill. We should not forget that the translation of a book or a poem, will be read by thousands of readers. This means that the text needs to be adequate and more unique.
