3 Levels of Chinese Translation Services We Offer

Sophie Ao, Author

18 January 2016

We believe every document should be treated professionally. However, not all documents should be treated equally. Important ones deserve premium service that requires utmost attention and best resources. Less important ones need standard or economic service that’s fast, cost-efficient or both.

We aim to provide the best appropriate solutions that perfectly match your requirements. In this regard, we have three levels of service for Chinese translation service: Premium, Standard, and Economic. Each addresses different aspects of your requirements, in terms of importance, speed and quality expectations. For your particular project, we will develop a tailored language solution that matches all your requirements and just the way you need it.

Our solution Best Quality + Same-day Delivery

Entrepreneurs are making decisions a lot faster these days to gain a market edge. You need a local partner that is equally fast to support you.

“sorry for the last minute notice…” “sorry, your translators will have to burn the night oil…”

Don’t be sorry. It’s what we do.

We will take care of your burning issues with unparalleled quality.

Translation will be done by Class A translators.

Best Quality + Cost Effective

We make every effort to ensure the best quality while keeping the cost down for you.

We adopt CAT tools for all translation projects for 2 obvious reasons:

  1. Level up translation quality by keeping consistency throughout all your documents;
  2. Save your cost by applying huge discounts for repetitions and matches in all your documents.

Translation will be done by Class B translators or above.

Cost Effective + Extremely Useful

For less important documents, especially large piles of documents, translating them all usually does not make any sense or allowed by budget.

You need someone native to skim them through, label them properly, make a summary or a gist in a few words, and highlight the most important or controversial parts for you. In this way, you can obtain the most useful information, in the shortest time frame, with the smallest investment.

Translation will be done by Class C translators or above.

If you have documents or websites that need translation in Chinese, let us know, and we’ll give you a quote in 24 hours on a working day or in 48 hours on weekends.

We have seen good clients and bad ones as well. As we are constrained by resources, we will only serve those deserve our attention and time. We will only focus on clients who are already decided which projects to prioritize and understand the importance of translation and localization efforts.
