Accurate translation to and from English is important: A poorly translated document can lead to misunderstandings and embarrassment, while a well-translated one can be both effective and impressive. Luckily, the best professional translation services, such as those from Etcetera Language Group, can make sure that documents move smoothly from one language to another. To help clients meet their English interpretation goals, we offer three solutions: general translation services, desktop publishing, and translation proofreading and editing.
At Etcetera Language Group, we devote much of our focus to transcribing documents into and out of English. We have worked with clients from a number of industries in which accuracy is paramount, including the pharmaceutical, tech, medical, financial, education, legal, and advertising fields. A poor interpretation would wreak havoc for clients in any of those lines of work, but we have the skills to deliver high-quality transcribed documents. We also work one-on-one with individual clients who have personal transcript needs

Another area of focus for Etcetera Language Group is desktop publishing. That is, preparing documents by handling formatting, typography, layout, and other aspects of design. The final product looks professional and is ready for presentation. For businesses that want to reach audiences who speak different languages, desktop publishing services from a transcription company can ensure that the message does not become lost or confused when it’s being translated to or from English.
Etcetera Language Group’s approach to desktop publishing involves a multilingual team. Visual artists carefully transcribe text into an appealing layout that captures each client’s message and the image they wish to present. Additionally, the advanced software in use at Etcetera Language group cuts down on both costs and the time it takes to publish documents.
Translation Proofreading and Editing
Etcetera Language Group’s third major service line is translation proofreading and editing. Languages can be quite different from one another, allowing errors to creep into translated documents. Such errors can cause problems with clarity. They can also make the person or business presenting an error-filled document appear unprofessional. The purpose of proofreading and editing is to find those errors and correct them.
Editing and proofreading have different goals that work toward the same end product: a highly polished document. Editing is the process of identifying and fixing large issues in a translated document, including problems with structure, grammar, and details lost during the rendering process. Then, proofreading involves taking a careful look at the final copy to find any remaining mistakes, such as typos and missing or incorrect punctuation. Once a document goes through editing and proofreading, it will be true to the original message and also reflect a professional approach.
