We Are idioma

Tânia

It’s a great day for a walk, but I was thinking since I’m not really up for it, maybe I’ll just stay home and read a nice book.

Irene

A happy Canadian camper that is guilty of all things Canadian: says thank you way too many times and thinks steak served with maple syrup is completely normal!

Diego

You usually find me translating, reading a book or watching stand-up comedy (either on my computer or in a comedy club somewhere in Madrid).

Newton

Living in Santos, Brazil, the leading port in Latin America, makes me kind of a World Citizen: ships coming and going made me eager to discover about other peoples. Learning languages was a goal, and translating is a natural consequence.

Let’s start with some proofreading work for idioma! and enjoy a nice cup of fresh coffee and home made apple pie on a bright and sunny Sunday afternoon on my terrace. I enjoy translating and proofreading whenever and wherever I am, but also whenever I have time. This is an ideal way of working being a freelancer.

It seems to be a surprising career twist: studying evolutionary biology and subsequently ending up as a translator. I see it as a blessing. Not only does it give me an edge in my work, but also a unique perspective on interpersonal relationships and on life itself.

Translation in a long dry season like this is not always comfortable, but working with idioma is always exciting and fun!

Urgent Translation Projects

If you need fast delivery, we offer Express translation with delivery within 4 hours (CET) for projects up to 200 source words with no minimum fees. For smaller orders up to 1,000 words, we guarantee Next-Day delivery. For large urgent projects, we can switch to Team Mode where multiple translators work on the same assignment and share resources to reduce the delivery term.

Our shift-based coordination system and 24/7 availability of our translation ordering platform make idioma® a perfect choice for overseas clients in different time zones, allowing them to order translation projects during their day, and let our European production center process the assignments overnight.

NOTE! Because all translation projects are managed from our European production center, the delivery terms are calculated based on Central European Time (CET).

Post-Editing of Machine Translation Output (MTPE)

For technical translation, idioma® has since several years been using machine-assisted translation to speed up delivery and offer competitive rates. While machine output is not reliable, we have implemented a post-editing process that like our translation services also relies on one native professional translator editing the MT output and another native professional translator reviewing the result. In 2017, we have achieved certification according to the ISO 18587:2017 post-editing standard for this service level. Depending on the documents involved, the MT option with human post-editing is only suitable for major languages and specific fields where style and fluency are not as important as impeccable terminology. This workflow generally enables us to deliver faster and with a lower pricetag.
If you are interested in the MTPE service, a good start is to have a well-maintained translation memory plus a good glossary at hand. Just contact us and we will have a customized solution for you.
