Why choose TranslationWire?
Most translation providers only provide around one to three of the following steps in our collaborative translation process, which illustrates how we provide higher quality:
1. Rough draft by the translator.
2. Research, editing and polishing of draft by the translator.
3. Edits, suggestions for improvement and responses to questions by the editor.
4. Review of edits, suggestions and comments by the translator.
5. Dialogue between translator and editor to agree on best wording and resolve issues.
6. Dialogue between translator and client to address any remaining questions.
7. Final proofing in final format by the translator.
