Translations

First of all: We are NOT expensive. We cost more than a free machine translation. Our customers have one thing in common: they want more for less money. Removing the human translator from the process can help cut costs. But it also comes with added risks for mistakes, misunderstandings and errors. There is always someone willing to work for less who may supply you with low quality work. It is not a good idea to hire the first translator who comes your way, because you might end up paying more and missing your deadline. We also translate into Norwegian on Smartlation Website.
Computer-assisted translation,computer-aided translation or CAT is a form of language translation in which a human translator uses computer hardware to support and facilitate the translation process. Computer-assisted translation is sometimes called machine-assisted, or machine-aided, translation (not to be confused with machine translation).

Google Translate is a great service. Our translator has translated numerous famous quotes from English and German into Norwegian. If you are going to translate official "stuff", brochures, ads, apps, programs, official text on web pages, documents you MUST have a trained translator to proofread the Google Translate. Machine translation: Tone, idioms, linguistic nuances and Colloquialisms won't be picked up by machine translations.
