Translation & Localization

With more than 100,000 pages of translation delivered over two decades, Verbium has the experience and expertise to make your project a success, whether it's a single phrase of advertising copy or a 250-page technical document. We pride ourselves on accuracy, clarity of expression, and pitch-perfect style, completed on-time and at reasonable rates.

Most of all, we realize that taking the time to understand clients' products and services, including by visiting their facilities for firsthand experience and face-to-face meetings, is an essential part of many translation projects. Successful execution depends on close collaboration with clients to ensure that their message and vision are communicated as faithfully as possible. We take the responsibility of helping craft our clients' messages seriously, and we're committed to getting it right, every time.

In that spirit, each translation undergoes extensive editing and copywriting to ensure that it can stand alone as a cohesive and engaging text. Since it may be desirable to deviate slightly from the source document to ensure the translation is natural-flowing and effective, this stage of the process often involves consulting with the client to optimize style and language.

The bottom line? We're not satisfied until we've helped you tell your story in the most engaging way possible, with language that's more than the sum of its words. Your document may not need to be translated as if it were literature. But you can rest assured that we'll treat it like it does.
