Translation

NAKOM offers high quality translation services thanks to our rigorous methodology, our own company philosophy and our working with an extensive network of translators native in their target languages that meet the requirements of European standard UNE-EN17100:2015 and are experts in the field. We also use the most advanced technology in the sector so we can shorten turnaround times, ensure texts are coherent and adapt terminology, language and style to our clients’ requirements.

Our years of experience have taught us that not all customers need the same thing, and not every customer needs the same thing every time or for every use. That’s why we offer different levels of translation so that the customer can adapt their quality expectations and budget to the project.

Our services and translation levels

Our services are designed to offer our customers the possibility of adapting their needs and their budget to the final text through different levels.

Economy

This translation service has been created in respond to today’s translation needs. The two levels included are for projects where translations of a large volume of content at an affordable rate and in a short amount of time are paramount. The result is a quick and easy-to-read text.

We use our confidential machine translation engines and our translation memories to pre-translate the documents and then add the layers of editing/proofreading required depending on the customer’s needs, type of text and purposes of the document by a certified and native translator specialized in the industry with at least five years of experience.

  • Economy Basic
    Translation service designed for urgent texts that may be used for informational purposes. The result are understandable texts, generally for internal or individual use, where spelling and style aren’t as important as the functionality of quickly gleaning a general knowledge from the text.
  • Economy Plus
    Designed for translation projects that do not require an expert tone. The result is accurate and stylistically appropriate translations with no grammatical or terminological errors, faithful to the original text’s content.

Business

First Class

Our translation areas of expertise

At NAKOM we are specialized in the legal field and in those that require high levels of expertise. Our work is based on teams of native linguists specialized in the target translation field and professionals in each subject coordinated by managers that study the characteristics of each project and handpick a team of specialists. The end result are quality translations, ranging from legal to sworn and from medical to websites.

Sworn translation

documents, such as contracts, meeting minutes, certificates, notarial instruments, residence permits, or for trials, law courts and other public institutions. NAKOM has an extensive network of sworn translators recognised by the Foreign Affairs Ministries and relevant bodies in each country.

Website translation

View more

The translation of websites and software localisation and internationalisation. NAKOM collaborates with programmers and translators to obtain a good translation and adapt computer programs and web pages based on their original format. The localisation and internationalisation of web pages, video games and other software involves translating a program’s resources (dialogue boxes, menus, links, etc.). Not only is the visible program text translated, but also the language code used to configure it and which the user doesn’t see. Localisation and internationalisation enable codes sending users from one section to another to work properly in a multilingual space.

Text revision

View more

Text revision. Any translation process involves text revision by native speakers who are specialists in the subject matter translated. However, this service may be requested on its own, as a way of ensuring that the style, terminology and quality of a text are perfectly suited to its purpose. Sometimes we recommend that the original text is reviewed before being translated into other languages.

Audiovisual dubbing and subtitling of TV series, films, reports, documentaries, cartoons, etc., requires knowledge of specific techniques, exhaustive working language skills and an excellent command of language resources.

Document and terminology management

View more

Creating corporate terminology bases, terminology management and documentation. Terminology work consists of forming lists of specialised vocabulary, i.e. associating words with their respective meanings in a specialised field. Clear and accurate communication depends on terminology and phraseology. This terminology service is managed using a bilingual or multilingual terminology database. It can be accessed by authorised users to consult terms and by authorised terminologists for content management purposes so they can keep it updated and produce corporate lexicons.
