Our subject areas / specialising in translation

As a language service provider, we have been specialising in translation for more than 20 years, mainly in the fields of technology, marketing & advertising, law and pharmaceuticals.

We supply translations to renowned institutions and clients in the areas of industry, advertising and business.

Technology, science and business are in a constant state of change and development, one consequence of which is the constant formation of new terminology and work processes. Stylistically sophisticated whilst grammatically correct translations can only be created with considerable language skills, extensive knowledge in different fields and the use of modern translation aids and tools.

Of course, we also offer certification of your documents (e.g. contracts, articles of incorporation, deeds, apostilles, trade registry extracts, expert medical reports, workbooks, etc.) by a sworn translator. They are judicially authorised to audit and certify the completeness and correctness of translations.

Our translators

Strict selection criteria and regular evaluation processes for our translators guarantee that we will implement your instructions precisely and accurately in the target language. We work with graduate translators. They translate solely into their native language, constantly undergo further training and have extensive expertise in their respective specialisms. Our experienced translators reliably take into account in their work any technical terms used within your company. Within this framework, we expand, maintain and manage your existing glossaries, or jointly develop one with you.

Our work complies with
DIN EN ISO 17100

Our translations are carried out by qualified translators and, following the four-eyes principle, are on request proofread by a second translator according to DIN EN ISO 17100. Please have a look at our word prices.

Being aware of the translation's target audience is a vital component of successful translation. In certain cases this may involve consultation with the customer on appropriate adjustments to target language texts, in order to take inter-cultural aspects into account.
We realise this with your close cooperation when you place an order.

The use of translation memories

To achieve faster turnaround times and to ensure first-class translations, when creating text our translators use leading Translation Memory Systems (TMS), such as SDL Trados, Across Language Server or memoQ. Our project managers continuously organise, evaluate and maintain your custom translation memory, as a free service.

A translation memory system saves and recognises text passages that have already been translated. The TMS is a database that stores and manages the translations undertaken to date, together with the corresponding source texts. For subsequent work, the system offers our expert translators those text passages that have already been translated, along with their translation. These can then be directly accepted, if appropriate. This leads to significant cost savings for you and ensures consistent, high quality results.

Our project management

Our experienced team always provides you with reliable and individual support. We dedicate a qualified project manager to each of your projects. They are responsible for ensuring dependable and effective execution of your projects until completion of your target language documentation.  

This is where the Proverb workflow, developed over many years, comes into its own:

Analysis of source texts (scrutiny of file formats and content)

Compilation of project plan and schedule for optimum project processing

Selection of suitable translators and proofreaders with the best linguistic and subject-related qualifications
