We Are idioma

Lukasz

When I talk about my love I mean my family, when I talk about my hobby I mean fishing and when I talk about my work I mean translations for idioma.

William

Cleaning out the wrong words from a translation, this might be a good idea :)

Chi

Ready to run!

Lieve

What a small country is good at: no one outside of Holland speaks Dutch, but we all speak at least two other non-native languages!

Andreea Ioana

My favorite quote is from Into the Wild (both book and movie) and I think it guides me through life: "Happiness is real only when shared".

Eleni

"..... keep translating... :)...."

Katia

I live and work for ten months on a beautiful mountain city named Nova Friburgo that has a mild climate, dreaming of two months of sun and beach in the wonderful city named Rio.

Anja

Berlin is just the perfect place to be for me... Fascinating, lively, international, and a million things to do! When I am not translating for idioma, I meet up with different language tandems to have a coffee and talk in English, French, Spanish... and of course German!

Teng-Chian

The road to professionalism as translator and interpreter: Punctuality, precision, responsibility, durability, readability and comprehensibility. There does not exist shortcuts otherwise.

Kiryl

Translation is at best an echo...

Rael-Saskia

From Estonia with my cat, dog and books.

Isabel

Buenos Aires, Argentina. I’ve just arrived home from my Tango lessons. I feel refreshed and inspired to catch up with my idioma translation.

Susanna

Digging in my garden, running with the dog and from time to time: relax with an idioma translation :-)

Angelos

Rain and cold is always round the corner in England, so I make myself a cup of coffee (or two) and translate for idioma in the warmth of my home.

Dastan

Scientia dux vitae certissimus

Liene

These dark, silent evenings are perfect...for work!

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.

Pavel

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.

Nicholas

As a business law student at the university of Linköping by day and a hockey referee by night, I like to enjoy a cup of black coffee (just a typical Swedish thing) while I catch up on idioma translations between lectures and games.

Ayan

I love travelling..and translating...I love the latter, because it´s one of those few jobs that can be perfectly combined with the former

June

Working as a legal secretary in Spain, but I am Norwegian, married to a Dutchman.

Oscar

Engineer and professional translator

"If you talk to a man in a language he understands, that goes to his head. If you talk to him in his language, that goes to his heart." - Nelson Mandela

Edgar

After a thousands words done, time for running

Jane

Hi from rural England. I have two children, two dogs, two rabbits and six chickens and have been working as a translator for 9 years.

Helen

It is sunny at last after a long time of cloudy days; I am also in a happy mood after a long time of sadness and depression…Too many things happened recently…anyway, life has to go on and life is so beautiful… I love my family and love my work.

Ángel

Translatin´!! I love it !! Gimme more translations!! I can never get enough!!

Raita

Now when they are bringing the cattle down from the mountains in Austria… I take my time to translate for idioma.

Anton

Language has always fascinated me, with all its depths and nuances. Translating is really a challenge, since it requires me to put into words what is not always directly translatable. In that way I can put my own personal touch into it, which makes it an art!

Assia

Translating from sunny Valencia

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.
