Finding the Right Translation Service

Thanks to the advent of global Internet access, businesses of all sizes are expanding their international reach. Whether you're selling clothes or offering medical advice, finding the right translation service for your business can enhance your chances of success. As machine translation is not always accurate, entrusting documents into human hands is essential.

Choosing a Certified Translator

A lot could get lost in translation, which means choosing a certified translator is important. Certified translators possess the qualifications needed to assess important documents, such as wills and legal contracts. More importantly, those with legal knowledge understand how to translate documents while adhering to the laws of the country it originates from, as well as to the ones it is being published in.

Many diplomatic missions around the world will require a raft of documents to help process applications for foreign nationals to enter their country, such as a migrant visa or to buttress a case for citizenship. The problem, however, is that some specific paper(s) have no ready equivalent in the subject country’s main language, thus outlining a need for certified translation services to work on them.

Transcriptions: First Step to Qualitative Research

Qualitative research, particularly those conducted in the field of primary care, aims to understand the most common of human phenomena, along with their complexity, in the fields of health and illness. Typically, these studies involve data comprising of written texts, including field notes and relevant documents, and audible and visual data, including interview recordings.

How Transcriptions Help

Most scholarly articles and authors describe transcription as a straightforward technical task. A transcriptionist would also take audio and spoken words into words on paper. However, this is not mere note-taking. Transcribing notes also requires interpretation, representation, and reduction (if necessary), not only to get the words down and make them readable, but also meaningful and relevant to the research.
