Respect is key in our relations with clients: comfort is our name of the game.
We offer the best rate in terms of time and budget
No overpricing, but no cheap labour, either. Cost-efficient and high-quality do not often go hand in hand.
...if you need to have an article translated for in-house training, but a) you're on a budget, and b) the gist of it is what you want, we have just the solution for you: Express or Post-Machine Translation rates.
However, if you've been invited to speak at a medical conference, then we recommend the Expert rate: the translation will make all the difference in front of hundreds or thousands of people.
If this is a literary translation, then we will pay extra attention to the author's intent and sound.
If this is a medical translation, we will make sure to translate all stamps and seals carefully and make out the doctor's handwriting.
We always welcome your feedback when it comes to any type of translation; we are happy to answer any questions and provide consultations to make sure you get the best experience.

To give you a taste of what we are like at work, I'll just tell you a story from our experience.
In the end, the quality exceeds your expectations
A translator once asked us to buy the original book to translate a review. No big deal!
I was tasked with translating a Russian review of a book by an English rabbi, Lessons in Leadership: A Weekly Reading of the Jewish Bible. The book was in English, but the review had little to do with the original language: almost 80% of it were quotes from the Russian (!) translation of the book.
I needed to get my hands on the source, otherwise I would have had to do a back translation completely different from the original. And that would've been extremely unprofessional: the rabbi would not have even recognised his text in the review.
Not to mention that the chapter titles were to be written in Hebrew in English letters, and the Russian translation doesn't have them. So I asked the company to buy the book in English. I had it on my desk by the end of the week. I set to work immediately.

By the way, there was no printed version of the book available in Russia. We had to buy one and have it delivered through Amazon.
We know the difference between doing things and actually getting things done
You won't be hearing excuses like “Sorry, I got the numbers wrong”, or “We forgot about the glossary”, or “What'd you expect, with a budget like this?”, or “We had no time to do your order, you should count your lucky stars we took it on at all!”
If there is a problem, we solve it. We are the ones responsible for coordinating resources we will have to use to finish the job on time. And the price won't change.

Professional translation. Without delay. With love.
Do I love what I do?
For some people, we do everything that they think is tedious. Like notarising and legalising documents or having an apostille attached to them. We file them at different agencies, we queue at the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, the Ministry of Justice and the consulates. We pay duties. We make arrangements and ask the officials to hurry it up.
For some people, we spend nights translating documents that they hate having and seeing: anamneses, tests, types of tumour, CT and MRI transcripts. We play for their team. The team of survivors.
Tender documents, technical descriptions, tons of Cyprus statutory documents: virtually a sea of words and figures jeopardising the right to a nine-to-five job. Well, you can either drown in that sea, or you can stand up on a surf board and learn to manoeuvre.
Do you know what I enjoy most in my job? I would love to say something like, “tears of gratitude in clients' eyes.” But no.
There are never tears; paperwork is not something you want to be thankful for, especially if it leads to even more paperwork. It's around eight in the evening; the office is empty. It's erily quiet. I lean back in my chair and close my eyes. Because I know there’s someone waiting for me at home in the evening. The same way there are people waiting for me at work in the morning. And most importantly: I want to keep coming back to both places.
