Who will be translating my document?
All translations are done by translators who work exclusively with subjects that they have experience with and for which they are qualified. They only do translations in their first language. All our translators are qualified professionals, in possession of a degree, at BA level or higher, and of a translation certificate. They have at least five years professional experience. .

Which languages do you translate from and into?
Talenpalet produces translations between more than 50 language pairs.

What is the difference between interpreting and translating?
The difference is that translators translate written language and interpreters translate spoken language.

How quickly can you deliver translations?
As a rule of thumb, a good translator translates and corrects approximately 2000 words a day. The first 2000 words normally take up more time, though: about two days. The time taken up by research and queries, correction work and administration should be taken into account. The delivery time also depends on the workload of our translators. We can also produce urgent translations on demand. Contact us for further information and to discuss your specific requests.
