Professional Translation

At Tales, we offer a professional German to English translation service by highly qualified and experienced translators.

We use sophisticated CAT programs, including the market-leading software package SDL Trados, to maximise productivity and ensure utmost consistency within and across translations. You are welcome to provide us with your own translation memory files, or we can compile these for you and deliver them together with your order.

Our translations not only present the intended message in the target language but also

  • consider and convey the overall style of the source text in regard to the target audience;
  • adhere to the desired length of the target text in consideration of the source text; and
  • regard the cultural contexts of both the source and target language to convey the desired message in an appropriate manner (e.g. the translation of idioms).
