This is what you get:

More than just a translation

A good translation is not simply about transforming a text from one language to another. It is also about transforming it into an appealing text that takes into account the target audience, cultural differences as well as nuances and developments within the target language. This is often referred to as localising your translation.

Our skilled language specialists will make sure that your completed translation is tailored to your market and your target audience.

Preferred team of linguists

Professional translations require skilled linguists and our experienced team of internal and external translators will make sure your task is in safe hands.

We work exclusively with translators who translate into their native language, all of whom have been carefully selected and tested, and we have strict requirements relating to their educational backgrounds and experience. Among other things, we require a bachelor’s degree and a minimum of 5 years’ experience. Furthermore, we regularly assess our freelance translators to ensure that the quality of their work remains high.

We assign a team of preferred translators, with knowledge about your industry, to your task, who take into account the specific language and jargon of your business.

Translators with sector knowledge

Our vast experience and extensive network of linguists means we can provide various types of translation (from manuals to advertising) across many sectors, such as the auto industry, the pharmaceutical industry, the legal profession, etc. We make sure to find the right translator with the required knowledge of your sector.

Translation to and from any language

AdHoc Translations provides professional translation in all language combinations.

Most of our translations are to and from European languages (English, German, French, Spanish, Danish, Swedish, Norwegian, Finnish, Portuguese, Italian, etc.), but languages spoken in emerging markets, such as China and India, are becoming more and more common.

We can help you with your task regardless of the language combination and this, in turn, allows us to grow alongside our customers.

Certified translations

Certain types of documents, such as legal documents, require legalisation in order to be legally valid in another country. We know the legislative requirements in other countries and can help you ensure that your documents are legally valid.

I.e. in Denmark such documents have to be translated by a translator who is registered in the Danish Ministry of Foreign Affairs’ database of registered translators. The translated document must then be signed by the translator and legalised by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs.

We can quickly and easily handle both the translation and certification of documents on your behalf, so that you receive a translation that is 100% legally valid.

Cloud-based translation tools

We use efficient cloud-based translation tools that ensure consistent use of terminology as well as recognition of previously translated segments and terms. This means that with every new project, the average price per word drops.

Our cloud-based solution also makes it possible for all translators and proofreaders to work in the same cloud, regardless of where they are based. This ensures a high-quality translation and results in a smooth and efficient process.

Terminology management

We compile terminology lists and offer terminology management to ensure consistent use of terminology in your communication. This helps you avoid any misunderstandings while making your texts more credible and professional.

We use the latest cloud-based translation tools, which makes terminology management simple and efficient. In addition to ensuring consistent terminology across all your translated texts, the tools can also benefit your internal authors (e.g. technical authors), as it gives them easy access to relevant term lists, term bases and translation memories.

Full overview and easy management

Our integrated customer platform, SmartDesk, makes it easy and simple for you to send and receive translation tasks, while also giving you a clear overview of all your projects.

It also allows you to access interesting reports on topics such as the volume of work, reusing of prior translations, etc. Read more about our Translation Management System, SmartDesk, here.

What is professional translation

Professional translation is when your company chooses to work with an agency instead of a freelancer. This is more beneficial to you as a customer. Not only do you get shorter delivery times, better pricing, the possibility of more language combinations, access to an array of other language services, etc. but you also get access to a smart customer platform that will make your life easier when it comes to dealing with translation tasks.
