Translation

The Finer Point approaches translating through the same two-part lens as it approaches editing: in order to produce a faithful and effective translation, we must consider your specific purpose and your audience. Translating is as much about your message as it is about your words.  You need a person who understands the subtleties of your target language: its idioms and rhythm, as well as the cultural context of your specific audience. We take care to deliver translations that are register-appropriate for your project.

 

We offer more than a precise, faithful translation of your words: we offer a polished version of your message in standard American English, as if you had said the words yourself.  As with our editing services, The Finer Point works with you to render a final, polished text in your voice -- only better: we provide you with the best version of yourself through the best expression of your message.  That is our goal.
