Each translation assignment begins with the client sending us the document to be translated wherein it is analyzed and a price quotation is submitted for approval, chiefly based on the language(s), word count, specialized skills required of the translator (e.g. engineering background) and turnaround time required. All translators used by Fluent are highly trained and experienced in the field of translation, and are native in the target language, i.e. the language the document is to be translated into. This ensures that the finished translation reads as though it were written in that language originally, not as though it were translated.
After the initial translation is completed, it is proofread against the original by another team member. This ensures that idioms or difficult-to-express thoughts present in the original are correctly translated as well grammar, spelling and punctuation conform to the rules of the target language. Modifications are reviewed with the original translator and further adjustments are made. The document is then proofread one final time to ensure all formatting reflects the original and that the document reads with a single, unified voice.
Standard turnaround time is three business days, however we can accommodate rush order requests for an additional fee. For documents over 2,000 words or those that are highly technical in nature, additional time will be required and will be discussed at the time of quotation.
All translations are performed by a team of human translators. Fluent utilizes state-of-the-art technology to assist in the translation process but the actual translation is performed by full-time, experienced translators specializing in the subject matter of the document.
