Key facts about our translators

The quality of the work we do for you is our principal concern. To ensure we hire only people of the right quality to deliver our professional translations, we look for candidates who can satisfy our stringent requirements.
To work for us, a translator must

  • Have over 5+ years of experience in the field of localization
  • Show at least two references for previous projects
  • Translate only into their native language
  • Be appropriately qualified in their technical areas
  • Have working industry experience for the type of material they translate

Quality and speed go hand in hand with our network of global office locations. If you’ve already had documents translated and you’re looking to get these independently checked, this is a service we are happy to offer and will ensure the proofreading linguist is fully briefed on the expectations. We can also review the text according to your business’ own styles guides, glossaries and guidelines to ensure that your translated documents fit in with your company culture and tone of voice.

Interpretation

Interpretation

Interpretation is a complex task. It requires that the interpreter select the right word for a spoken translation instantly and without fail. There is no opportunity to edit; no margin for error. To be effective, the interpreter must:

  • Have extensive experience with interpreting
  • Have in-depth knowledge of the subject area
  • Integrate cultural preferences into their choice of words and phrases with only split second to think about them

LingArch has extensive interpretation experience across all industries, including healthcare, insurance, financial services, technology, manufacturing, and government. Our diverse language mix and large network of interpreters ensure that quality interpretation service can be provided worldwide. LingArch selects from among the most highly qualified interpreters to meet our clients’ needs in any location worldwide. We can also provide on-site coordination and interpreting equipment. Whether you request interpretation services weeks in advance or on short notice, our client service professionals are ready to assign the best interpreters to meet your needs.

From our experience, we understand the need to provide organizations with a 24-hour service which is robust, accessible and adaptable.

Integrity – We believe in consistently delivering services according to the specification agreed with the client, and acting in an accountable and transparent manner at all times.

Quality – We are fully BS EN ISO9001:2008 certified and the processes associated with this cover all aspects of our service delivery; from the recruitment and performance monitoring of our linguists, to the processes that drive invoicing and customer feedback systems.

Value – We deliver true value to our clients through a combination of competitive pricing, high quality services and exceptional levels of customer service.  Innovative cost saving programs, cutting edge technology, and the most experienced personnel in the industry come together to offer clients a telephone interpreting service that can deliver significant cost savings without compromising on quality.

 

Consecutive Interpretation

Consecutive interpretation is often bi-directional and, unlike simultaneous interpretation, relies on the interpreter waiting for the speaker to finish a sentence or statement before beginning his/her spoken translation.

Consecutive interpretation is most commonly used in one-on-one situations such as depositions and trials, or small group meetings. Specialized interpretation equipment is typically not required.

Our consecutive interpreters have exceptional linguistic and interpersonal skills, allowing them to carry out their interpretation without interrupting the proceedings. Consecutive interpreters are therefore also commonly employed for outings, travel, site visits and social engagements.

 

Simultaneous Interpretation

Simultaneous interpretation services are ideal for large conferences and meetings. Simultaneous interpreters are skilled in speaking and listening at the same time, and deliver the translated speech a few seconds behind the original speaker.

Specialized equipment is usually required to transmit simultaneously interpreted speech to a large number of participants. Our state-of-the-art equipment includes wired, wireless, and infrared systems, as well as two- and three-person booths. Our dedicated project managers will provide custom simultaneous interpretation solutions to meet clients’ specific needs.

Simultaneous interpreting is incredibly vigorous and taxing work. Accordingly, it is an industry standard that two or more simultaneous interpreters switch off for each language pair involved.

 

Over-The-Phone Interpretation

Over-The-Phone interpretation is an efficient and affordable method of communicating with limited English speakers. It allows people to communicate across different languages in a matter of seconds through the simple use of a telephone.

Clients often ask us why and when they should use a telephone interpreter instead of a face-to-face interpreter. Here are some simple situations in which you might choose to use a telephone interpreter rather than call a face-to-face interpreter to your premises:

  • In an emergency, where you require interpretation support immediately
  • When access to an interpreter is required unexpectedly
  • When anonymity is preferred
  • If the conversation is going to brief (under 30 minutes)
  • If there are geographical limitations and it is not possible for an interpreter to attend your meeting

Digital Localization

Digital Localization

Digital technology connects businesses and consumers around the world. For this reason, the demand for local-language versions of applications and software is on the rise.   When it comes to digital localization, businesses require more than simple user-interface translations. They require partners that create effective results, meet deadlines and reduce time-consuming errors. LingArch has the right tools to make businesses truly global and help them achieve desired goals. Our services include:

  • Software localization
  • App localization
  • Web localization

At LingArch, we’ve been localizing a wide range of software suites into numerous languages and cultures for many years and our expertise in the area of multilingual software localization is the reason why major international companies turn to us for their foreign language projects. They know that first impressions and sustainable quality are crucial for success and they rely on us to meet their objectives. We process localization projects both from the developer’s and the user’s perspective, which allows us to translate, localize, test and even adapt software in such a way that the final result contains no embarrassments.

Website Localization

Website Localization

The Internet connects computers, but language connects people. And if your website doesn’t support your customer’s language, it may as well not exist for that customer. A localized website creates a full first impression of a business and draws new customers.

  • Web users are four times more likely to purchase from a site that communicates in the customer’s language (source: International Data Corporation)
  • 37% of internet consumers spend more time on sites available in their own language (source: Common Sense Advisory)
  • Visitors stay for twice as long if a website is in their own language (source: Forrester Research)

In order to guarantee that LingArch consistently delivers the level of language that our clients need, on the front end of an engagement we focus on the creation of glossaries, style guides, brand guides and samples (from our proposed linguistic teams) that, once signed-off by our client’s in-country reviewers, act as a road map for all website translation work going forward. Furthermore, we have a detailed web content adaptation methodology that involves three separate, native speaking, and vertically focused linguists.

LingArch offers tightly-integrated translation services that make it easy to optimize your website content in any language around the world. Content delivered in a customer’s preferred language is naturally more relevant, leading to higher conversions. With built-in localization capabilities, you can start creating consistent and compelling customer experiences globally without the usual translation complexities.

Global Marketing

Global Marketing

Giving your brand that Extra flavor

As global consumers become increasingly demanding, your marketing messages must be stronger than ever. To meet these demands, you need to overcome language and cultural barriers with content that’s timely, relevant, and effective.

Reduce global marketing complexities and deliver optimal results with LingArch’s combination of language, marketing, and creative production services.

With LingArch as your global marketing services partner, you’ll get a global operating model, flexible approach to technology, and deep language and cultural expertise so you can:

Cultural Consulting

Cultural Consulting

Every market interprets pitches, brands, and designs differently. Our team has the cultural expertise, creativity, and language proficiency to help you tailor your style and imagery.

It is estimated that more than half of all international business expansions fail within two or three years because of lack of cultural competency. While expanding your business to new markets, you might need to adapt the strategy of your communication.  At LingArch, we understand the key factor of being aware and sensitive to cultural differences while dealing with translations. To be successful in your marketing efforts while trying to sell your products or services in a new market, you need to keep in mind that what works in one culture may not work -or even be inappropriate- in another culture. Our cultural consulting team will review all elements of your campaign. It is essential to use reliable local resources who currently reside in the target culture to ensure an awareness of the nuances and preferences of their native country.

Other services in support of marketing and advertising include:

Foreign Market Research

When required, LingArch undertakes research to find out what sells and how to sell it anywhere in the world.  This includes desk and field research, interviews and questionnaires.
