Translation

Slovak to English like your mother tongue

Reach your customers and readers with the highest quality translation from Slovak into English – your original message’s meaning is retained and expressed in fluent, stylish and natural English.

Our extensive experience with marketing, corporate communications, public relations, advertising, online content, media and journalism enables us to deliver pitch-perfect B2C translated content every time.

Press releases, website content, articles and blogs, adverts, speeches and presentations….anything where first impressions count and professionalism is a must.

Copy-editing

Lively, engaging and flowing content

Maximise your readers’ experience with fluent and stylish rewritten English copy.

Whether your material is pre-translated or written directly into English, this service will take your text and transform it into compelling attractive copy that best represents your service or brand: paragraphs reordered, headlines and subheadings rewritten to catch readers’ attention, word choice and synonyms optimised, paraphrasing and rewriting.

For best impact, it is important to know the target audience, preferred tone of voice (formal, friendly, etc.), and how and where the text will be used.

Proofreading

Error-free writing fast

Having a translated text – or text written yourself – proofread by a professional will have any mistakes identified and corrected before submission or publication.

The degree of proofreading (also known as ‘revision’, ‘check’, ‘review’, etc.) depends on the quality of source text – yet is generally ideal for well-written fact-based content (like academic, business and technical) where the emphasis is on correctness and accuracy rather than style and fluency.

Our proofreading includes grammar, spelling, punctuation, false friends, mistranslations, refinements, clarity, conciseness, and to an extent word choice and sentence structure.

Writing

Original content for your original message

Breaking news: writing takes time. And that’s a problem if you don’t have the time, but need to produce content.

We have extensive experience writing press releases, blogs, product descriptions, website content, slogans, personal & business profiles, etc.

Just give us some relevant fuel for the fire – notes, ideas, background information, examples – and we’ll produce content that meets your wordcount requirement and deadline.

For best impact, it is important to know the target audience, preferred tone of voice (formal, friendly, etc.), and how and where the text will be used.

Advisory

Valuable advice and support

Sometimes asking a second opinion can be a great asset.

Especially when that opinion is based on years of practical experience, measurable outcomes, and strong familiarity with how best to put forward ideas from Slovak into natural localised English.

Insightful opinion and practical advice that is shared in a positive, confidence-building, collaborative constructive manner.

So if you’re working on a press release, website content, a presentation, speech, marcom, or anything else that could benefit from professional support, contact us and make your life easier: a problem shared is a problem halved.

Training

Practise makes perfect

Giving a high-profile presentation or speech soon?

That can be stressful and nerve-wracking even in your native language. And in English even more so.

We have extensive experience preparing professionals for duties ranging from presenting annual plans to British shareholders with Q&A, keynote addresses at the UN and EU bodies, best-man speeches in Oxford, etc.

Because whatever the formality, content, and audience size, the goal is the same: that attendees clearly understand what you want to say.

And that means paying attention to pronunciation, pacing, emphasis, fluency and flow, content relevancy, cultural relevance, and appropriateness.

So where first impressions count and reputations are on the line, we can ensure that practise makes perfect.

Simply choose a service according to your needs, target audience, and budget – and if you’re not sure which service best suits you be, we’re happy to advise 🙂

With express (within 12 hours) and standard delivery. Simply select the speed of delivery based on your budget, required job, and document size. 

F.A.Q.

Our prices are very competitive and fair. We want to offer you the best possible price for your document – that’s why we don’t publish a ‘one-size-fits-all’ rate. Every document has specific requirements, deadline, and volume, so please contact us for a bespoke quote. 

And if you receive a better quote elsewhere – we’ll match it. That’s our price promise.

You can choose between our express (within 12 hours) and standard options (within three days). We will always do our best to deliver as soon as possible and will inform you asap in the case of any additional time required (due to document size or complexity).

Proofreading is ideal for well-written more factually-based texts like academic, business and technical. Copyediting – which includes proofreading – is more targeted at creative flowing texts like media, public relations, advertising, journalism, etc. Proofreading generally adds to original word count, copyediting reduces it.

Rewriting involves restructuring paragraphs and changing the meaning of content to enhance the text’s clarity. If you are not sure that you need rewriting, send me a preview of your document, and I will help you to decide on which service you need. Rewriting is included in our copyediting service.

Paraphrasing involves expressing the meaning of something written using different words, especially to achieve greater clarity. If you are not sure that you need paraphrasing, send me a preview of your document, and I will help you to decide on which service you need. Paraphrasing is included in our copyediting service.

We’re here to help and keep it simple. Just contact us with a brief description of your requirements – and ideally attach your document or a sample – and we will make a recommendation based on your needs.

We specialize mainly in marketing translations, i.e. any content for public or online distribution. Such content best utilizes native English fluency and flow. We have extensive experience in the proofreading and editing of a very wide range of documents from various sectors and professions – you name it, we’ve probably done it.

Every document – whether translated, proofread, or rewritten – goes through a four-eye evaluation to ensure quality, consistency, and accuracy. Our regular customer satisfaction survey has an over 95% approval rating.

Yes of course – we are happy to demonstrate our work with anonymous document samples.

All our intelligence, experience and know-how is 100% human. But we use Memsource to improve translation speed and ensure consistency of vocabulary, and every job is finally run through Microsoft Spellcheck as a final quality control measure. Services like Grammarly are fine to improve native speakers’ English, but are unreliable and superficial for non-native English (sentence structure, false friends, cultural references, etc.).
