Translating is not a word-by-word substitution, it doesn’t mean to replace each word with the its correspondant in another language. It’s a matter of meaning, sense, target, shades, that only a translator can catch and express in the exact same way the first author did.
Proofreading is essential to catch any error in spelling, punctuation, or grammar. It may also involve checking of different elements of a layout (such as headlines, paragraphs, illustrations, and colors) for their correct dimensions, placement, type, etc. Despite the spelling checking abilities of modern word processors, a human proofreader is indispensable before any document can be considered complete.
In this day and age, you can’t afford not having your website, app, device available in major languages spoken throughout the world. A European Commission study found that 9 out of 10 Internet users, when given a choice of languages, always visit a website in their own language, nearly 19% of Europeans never browse in a language other than their own, and 42% never purchase products and services in other languages. More than half of consumers are also willing to pay more if they are provided with information in their own languages, so GO GLOBAL!
Transcription is the act of making a written copy of words that have been spoken. It can apply to recorded phone calls, testimonies and statements, interviews, meetings, etc.
Interpreting is an oral form of translation, enabling real-time cross-linguistic communication either face-to-face, in a conference setting, over the phone or video conference.
