A successful translation is one that you don’t notice. It’s a self-contained text which fluently, effortlessly and comprehensibly communicates all that was in the original while staying true to its style and “feel“.
With texts that require particular attention to aspects such as these, we take an editorial approach to translating. This way, you can be sure the end result addresses your intended readership in the manner and language they expect. All of our translations are produced by native-speaker translators who are up to date with the latest language usage and know the cultural dos and don’ts of their home country.
As a matter of principle, every text that leaves our desk is subject checked and double-checked. In other words, our translations are produced by a qualified specialist translating into their own mother tongue, checked by another and re-checked for accuracy and completeness by the Agency Manager herself. Not a single piece of work leaves our office without undergoing several rounds of close scrutiny.
We currently translate in the following languages:
Bosnian – Chinese (Mandarin) – Croatian – Czech – Dutch – English (US/UK) – Finnish – French – German – Greek – Italian – Latvian – Lithuanian – Polish – Portuguese – Russian – Serbian – Slowakian – Slovenian – Spanish – Turkish
WortSchatz translates mainly editorial texts that deal with the following specialist areas:
arts and crafts – fashion – hospitality – legal – lifestyle and beauty – marketing – optics/eyewear – public relations – social – travel and tourism
Our projects include customer magazines, websites, presentations, image and info brochures, press releases and legal documents, such as contracts and statutory regulations.
With a wealth of experience to draw on, we establish the structures needed for our customers’ projects to run as smoothly and efficiently as possible. We work to tried-and-tested standards, which we optimise and enhance continuously.
All projects are coordinated by Agency Manager Kristin Lohmann, who is also our sole point of contact for customers.
