Our translation services

Our Translation Process


After reviewing your documents, we will provide a time and cost quote. We base our quotes on the source word count (if available)

Terms of Reference

If the quote is accepted, we will send you a Terms of Reference (TOR) letter to sign. This lays out the price, timeline, and other details


We start the work on the project and research the appropriate terminology and contact you if we have any questions

Editing & Formatting

Our expert editors review the translated documents for accuracy, and appropriate style, and ensure that the formatting matches the source text


If requested, our graphic designer will typeset the document. We mirror the page orientation to match Arabic’s right-to-left flow

Submission & Invoice

We submit the final files to you for approval, along with the project invoice, which is payable within 30 days of receiving

Review & Feedback

After you receive the translated work, you have a full 30 days to review and request any edits. We’re not done until you are 100% satisfied with our work

Drink Tea & Relax

The more we work together, the better we understand your organization and act as a “virtual member” of your team. You can relax knowing that we’ve got your translation needs covered
