What if I need only some part of a document to be translated?

You will have to define the styles in your document such as for instance you can highlight that text which needs translation in a certain color and specify your requirement while submitting the document with us.

How do I manage my project?

Once your project is accepted, the translator will start working on your project. For all large projects, we will also update progress of the project from time to time. If you have any specific translation request that you missed to send while submitting the project, you can email it to us. If you have additional files in the project, you can email them too. 

 

How can I be sure that the translator has understood my project specific requirement?

In majority of cases, this is hardly a problem. These translators are experienced professional translators who know their jobs. Besides choosing a translator with high customer rating and experience can help coz they have enormous experience of handling wide variety of projects. However if you have a complicated project at hand or a project demanding a different and more specific treatment, it is best to write your requirements clearly and in detail while submitting the project. You can also ask the translator to complete a small portion as 200 or 300 words to demonstrate to you that he/she has figured out your specific request. Alternatively you also have the option to submit complicated projects or those with specific requests directly to our project managers to ensure their active assistance in ensuring that your requirements are met seamlessly.

Are my documents kept confidential?

Yes. We are ISO 27001 Data security compliant. We do not sell or share your documents with any third party ever. Only our project managers and translators contacted by you can see the documents uploaded by you. Our employees and most translators are signatories to non-disclosure agreement pertaining to confidentiality of all client data. We can sign project specific confidentiality clauses with specific translators in case of extremely sensitive documents or if this is matter of concern for you, if we receive such a request from you in advance. If you still need to sign a Non-disclosure agreement with our company, we will be happy to do it.

Why are there different quote for the same project? 

The difference in quotes is due to different fees of different translators. Translation is an art. Different translators charge differently, often on basis of their professional qualification & training, years of experience in translation, expertise etc.  As a company based on Total Efficiency Model, we know that different professionals who bring different skills and different quality of service on table will not work on equal pay. Besides cost of living and wage rate in different countries are different, and we would like to pass the cost benefit to customer in all such cases where we can. We proactively take steps from time to time to ensure that translator fees on our panel are comparable with their level of service and efficiency to bring highest standards of cost efficiency to our customers.

Do you give a credit period for payment?

We give a credit period only to corporate account holders which are mostly fortune 1000 company or a company with great credit history with us. Other customers need to make advance payment.

Will the delivery be on time? 

We strive hard to meet project deadlines. More than 90% projects are delivered well before the promised time. But in case any project needs additional time by the translator to whom the work has been assigned, we will inform the clients. If the client is unable to accept a deferred date, our project managers assist them with choice of other translators or try to split the project into parts.

 

What if the translator working on my project is unavailable or falls sick?  Can I be assured of delivery of my assignment?

Yes, in case a translator who has accepted a project but is not available to complete the project, due to any unforeseeable reason such as falling sick or any other issue, we will allocate the work to another translator once it comes to our notice and try to get the translation completed within the timelines as far as possible or at the earliest depending upon when this information is reported to us by translator and availability of other translators. In case there is no close match to the same price available at that time, we will inform the client and the client shall have to pay the difference in fees.

 

Why am I being requested for additional fees for my project?

Once you select a translator at their quoted price and he/she has accepted it, you are going to get the translation at the same price in most cases except following certain circumstances

  1. Word Count Mismatch: Translator notifies that the actual word count varies from the original word count which was stated during the quotation because client has sent additional work request, or some portion of text could not be read by the software accurately or if the client had manually entered the word count and the Translator found the actual word count was higher. You will have to pay for the cost difference. Any other Translation company in world would account for additional work or word count difference or any other additional overhead which has occurred and was not accounted earlier when they eventually raise their final invoice. 
  1. Expertise involved: Translators charge different fees for documents involving different level of expertise and complexity. A general content of same number of words takes less time and strain to complete than a technical or complex content of the same volume and also involves higher skills. The fees for general documents are listed on the site. Semi-technical and technical documents are liable to be charged roughly 30% to 60% higher. The online system might populate lower prices coz the per word fees for general content is lower than that of technical content. In such a case, once the translator notifies the same or our project managers notice the same, you will be informed and requested to pay additional fees. If you are not sure which category your content falls under, please contact us and we shall assist. 
  1. Emergency : If the translator who has been awarded the project by you falls sick or due to any other emergency is unable to complete your project, our project managers will immediately award the project to another translator of a similar profile as soon as it is brought to our notice by the translator. We shall try to ensure delivery without any extra cost. However if our project managers are unable to find a translator who can complete the project during that time for the same fees, we might have to award the project to a translator with a higher fees and you will have to pay the cost difference.  We will of course inform & confirm with you before proceeding in such a situation.

 

Do you check the Quality of Translation?

Translation is done and proofread by respective Translators, not by Translation Work Zone Team. We take steps in our Quality module to help ensure that you get good service. We screen translator profiles and give them their first rating basis their quality of sample, (sometimes quality evaluation test), experience, education etc.

If you need to get translation done by one translator and checked by someone else before it reaches you, then you shall have to order a third party proofreading. Any translation company in world would include a third party proofreading only if the client demands it and pays for it. This can be done easily upon completion of your translation.

What if I need to get any changes done in the translation?

You can request for correction. The suggestions can be made by inserting comments.   

 

What if I don’t like the quality of translation?

We shall send the document to another translator for quality check to verify the extent of issue and work with you and the Translator to work out a solution.

 

Do you offer refunds?

No, we do not offer refunds. If there are justifying circumstances, please open up a ticket with us by sending us an email. In a rare situation where the translator is unable to deliver the translation we will try to immediately work with you to find an alternate solution or else issue a refund if requested. The maximum claim in any project would be limited to total project fees minus third party charges such as Payment transfer charges etc.
