Translation is a laborious task and it requires very extensive knowledge of grammar, context and multiple meanings in targeted language. A Translator has to often take the time to analyze, study and choose what is the best equivalent in targeted language. Some examples of techniques are:
“Formal equivalence” corresponds to “metaphrase”, and “dynamic equivalence” to “paraphrase”.
“Dynamic equivalence” (or “functional equivalence”) conveys the essential thought expressed in a source text — if necessary, at the expense of literality, original sememe and word order, the source text’s active vs. passive voice, etc.
There is, however, no sharp boundary between functional and formal equivalence. On the contrary, they represent a spectrum of translation approaches.
Each is used at various times and in various contexts by the same translator, and at various points within the same text — sometimes simultaneously. Competent translation entails the judicious blending of functional and formal equivalents.
Telelanguage Seattle only uses Translators that have Native Fluency
in the Target Language and English.
Some of our translators also provide oral interpretation. However, more than 70 percent of them do not. Written Translation requires a different set of skills and qualifications from oral interpretation. Many of our interpreters would not be qualified to provide written translation and vice versa.
Translator’s qualification standards and criteria differ for the two types of services. All Translators with whom we contract have at least 2 years experience in Written Translation and are subject-matter experts. We assign translation projects to specific translators based on their experience in the subject-matter.
We have an extensive database of translators that allows us to provide translation services in any language, currently over 100. Translator’s subject-matter expertise and experience is clearly identified in their profile in order to be able match certain translators with specific projects.
