Translation Services Process
STEP 1: Quotation/Inquiry
Please fill in the required information on the Quotation/Inquiry Form and send it to us.
Please do not hesitate to contact us, if you have any further requests regarding details not indicated on the form, such as purpose of use, delivery date, level of accuracy, or other.
STEP 2: Quotation
Our coordinator will confirm with you the details of the order, any unclear points, and requests. Subsequently, we will send you a quotation by email. If your document is low in volume, we will provide you with a quotation within 3 business days from the date of order. If it is higher in volume, or is not in text data (such as printed materials or photo images), it may take additional time for us to provide you with a quotation. We may not be able to provide a quotation if the required information is unclear or incomplete.
STEP 3: Order and Contract
After reviewing the quotation, please email us to place your official order. Upon receipt of your email, we will begin the translation work.
STEP 4: Translation Work
We will select the most suitable translator for the job according to the content of the document and the customer’s request. If there are any questions regarding the content of the document, we will contact you for verification.
After it has been reviewed and proofread by a native speaker, the document will be complete.
STEP 5: Final Check
After the translation process, we will review the document for a final check.
STEP 6: Delivery
After the work has been completed, we will deliver the translation text as an attachment via email. Please contact us, if you have any questions. An additional fee will be charged if you require the translated document to be sent by post mail, instead of email.
If we are clearly at fault for any mistranslations, typographical errors, or omissions, we will correct them free of charge. If the customer requests any changes, corrections, or additions to the document, there will be an additional charge.
Upon delivery, we will be including a survey, and would appreciate your cooperation by providing your answers. We will try our best to further improve the quality of our products.
STEP 7. Billing and Payment
Upon delivery, an invoice will be sent to you by email.
For further details, please refer to “Billing and Payment” below.
