General translations

“General translations” refers to translations of texts that do not contain specialized terminology or technical complexities. General translations do, however, contain important information that you need to communicate. For that reason you should avoid automatic translation apps and seek professional language services. Skrivanek’s vast experience makes us an excellent choice for the translation of general texts.

Examples of general translations include correspondence, journalism, blogs for the general public, event pamphlets, travelogues, CVs, and job application cover letters. Common documents like these do not require specialized knowledge of a specific field. But they do require readable style, accuracy of context and nuance, and clarity of the author’s intent. These are features Google Translate cannot offer. Translators who are native speakers of the target language are the best solution.

We are here for you

If your texts include graphics and terminology of a specialized nature, we have specialized translators with backgrounds in your field. Translation by linguists who have worked or studied in your field achieve the accuracy you must have for legal documents, financial reports, technical instructions, medical descriptions, and so many more specialized fields. These are all Skrivanek specialties, but they are not considered general translations, even when intended for large groups of people.

High quality general translations can usually be done quickly and arranged at the last minute. Because of the straightforward nature of the texts, calculation of the cost is by word count and easy to calculate and confirm. Globalization has led to a vastly expanded network of connections among people around the world. When you want to communicate with your international friends and contacts, turn to Skrivanek. Our professionals know how to translate your meaning with 100% accuracy, with fast turnaround and affordable pricing.
