male and female translators with headphones on If you speak a second language or have interacted with someone who does, you’ve more than likely already experienced one of the hardest truths about translations: things very rarely translate directly.

Some languages place the adjective before the noun (English), while many others place it after the noun (French and/or Spanish). Certain languages, such as English, do not assign genders to nouns; whereas, Mandarin does not use gender at all. Some languages have an extended alphabet, and some dialects are written or interpreted through sounds, emphasis, or symbols. It’s simply very easy to make a mistake when translating between languages, whether through verbal communication or documentation.

Translation mistakes can be costly. A statement translated too literally can be interpreted as a threat or an insult where no harm was intended. In advertising, it could mean tens of thousands of dollars being paid to correct a campaign that delivered the wrong message or caused confusion. In personal documentation, it could mean delayed processing or filing, or a misunderstanding that could require further time-consuming clarification.

In translating, it’s very important that the intention behind every document is accurately communicated to ensure that there aren’t any errors or misunderstandings that can disrupt you, your project, or your brand. Etcetera Language Group provides just that. Whether it’s a brochure, manual, business documents, or educational papers, we provide highly accurate translations and professional presentation for all of our clients. Our translations are handled by professional translators who are also native speakers of your target audience.

When translating documents into another language or between languages, one of the biggest challenges is maintaining the overall integrity of the document. Through our editing and proofreading services, we guarantee perfect final translations that not only satisfy the intended objective but are also free from errors.

Translation Editing

Our Translation Editing service is designed to make sure that your translations make sense grammatically and structurally. We are very careful to maintain the details of the translation while making sure that the verbiage is properly qualified and the sentence structure is clean.
Whether you started translating on your own, would like someone to go over previous translations, or are beginning from scratch, we work with you to ensure consistency and clarity throughout.

Translation Proofreading

Translation Proofreading is the last step for official documents designed to ensure the document’s integrity and professionalism. This service checks the translation for any grammatical or punctuation errors, typos, or mistakes. This service also serves as a final walkthrough to ensure clarity and to make sure that there will be no misunderstandings when the document is being read by a native speaker. Upon completion, you can rest easy knowing you are receiving error free translations.

We also provide several other services to enhance your translating experience, including formatting, expedited/overnight shipping, quick turnaround times, and notary certification.
