Ensuring Literary Translation Accuracy

To guarantee the accuracy of our literary translations, we at Foreign Translations pair each of our clients with a professional, native-speaking translator who also has specific knowledge, an educational background and/or professional experience that supports the given literary need.

This unique combination of "native speaker meets industry professional" ensures that each literary translation we generate is true to its original content and meaning, as our translators accurately incorporate the proper words, appropriate tones and necessary formatting within the greater cultural context in which the text will be read.

For example, depending on your need, we will pair you with:

  • A German translator who has a degree in journalism
  • A Japanese translator who is also a novelist
  • Or anything in between
