We guarantee that the message you want to communicate to your audience will make perfect sense to them. The flow of language, tone and messaging will remain intact in the translated content.
At Jonckers, we follow a three-step process to identify the ideally suitable translators for your content. Each of them undergo an extensive training, testing and certification process. This is carried out to determine their compatibility with the task at hand.
We do not deliver run-of-the-mill word-for-word translation. We put a lot of emphasis on localising the translated content, keeping in mind both the audience and the industry the content belongs to. The translation of content meant for retail or e-commerce will be different from that meant for travel and tourism. These subtle attention to detail help us stand apart.
Our job doesn’t end with assigning the best translators to work on your content. We have developed a translation platform called WordsOnline. It has a number of built-in algorithms, specifically tasked with quality assessment. It tracks the translation of your content and identifies content that can potentially be mistranslated or the incorrectly localised. This content is subjected to quality assessment checks to eliminate any mistakes.
