Foreign languages can help everybody expand their communication range. A perfect reason to place your texts in the hands of our experienced native speakers, exploiting potentially new opportunities for your project by means of a professional translation. Quality translations require in-depth comprehension of the text, a feel for the language, knowledge of the cultural background and, most importantly, a rich vocabulary. Producing a translation isn’t always as easy as it seems, and careless translators often walk into a number of hidden traps. This is precisely why jollywords uses only native speakers to translate your texts. Moreover, their many years of experience as translators make them perfectly qualified for the accurate conversion of your texts into the target language.
Other languages on request.

File format of the source and/or target texts
If the text that needs to be edited is in a special format that doesn’t allow direct editing (scans, photocopies, website texts, etc.), the word rate may be higher to allow for the extra time and/or effort required. The content will need to be converted into a text format first. The cost of the above will also depend on the scope of the text.
Format and delivery date
Your completed text will be sent by email as an Office document (preferably .doc or .odt). In the case of particularly large files, the completed file will be sent as a download. Other file formats are available upon request. Time frames will vary depending on the scope and urgency of the order and will be defined on a case by case basis.
