12 Benefits of Our Translation
12 Benefits You Can Surely Expect If You Choose the Translation or Proofreading of MET Translation Office
1; Our translation will be precise and it will faithfully reflect the content of your text.
- During the translation process, we pay special attention to transferring the exact content of the original (source language) text sent by you, as well as to maintain its original format.
- Our aim, in case of each translation, is to transfer the content of the original (source) text to the selected target language as precisely as possible.
- Thus, if you place the two texts next to each other and compare them, the translated text will appear like the mirrored reflection of the original one in front of you.
2; We will respect and preserve the style of the original text sent by you.
- Besides the faithful reflection of the content of the original text, we also consider it our imperative to retain its style in the translation.
- We also adjust the translation to the needs of your target readers so that you will be able to use it in the most effective way possible.
3; We guarantee that your text will be translated or proofread accurately and professionally.
- We are able to achieve this by the help of our highly qualified general and professional translators.
- MET Kft. works exclusively with knowledgeable, experienced, reliable and committed translators and proofreaders who show much greater interest in their specialist areas than the average.
- Our translators find it natural to develop their language knowledge and terminology base, as well as the background knowledge related to their areas of expertise.
4; When we translate or proofread your text, we use all technical terms accurately and correctly.
- In order to achieve this, in the case of each job, we find it particularly important to use the related professional vocabulary accurately, as well as to build the technical terms into the translated text in their appropriate grammatical forms.
- We are greatly helped in this by our own systematically organized terminological database, which is based on the special areas of expertise where we translate. It was collected by us on the basis of our previous translations with consistent work for long years.
- Besides this, we also use such internationally acknowledged and continuously developed digital dictionaries, like My Memory, Glosbe and Linguee, by which the words and expressions we search for can be seen in sample sentences.
- By doing so, we are able to check both the meaning of the technical terms incurring during our translations and the grammatical elements that are necessary for their use in context, thus eliminating possible mistranslations and such use of the language, which may seem awkward or just ridiculous to the native speakers of the target language.
- All of the translators we work with have to keep our basic expectation, that is, to look up each word or expression whose meaning is unknown to them or they are uncertain about.
- Then they have to check the accurate interpretation and use of the term in context, in the relevant professional articles that are continuously issued on the internet. This allows us to renew the professional vocabulary of our translators and keep it updated on a permanent basis.
5; We update our professional background from different sources, continuously.
- For this, we constantly monitor the changes in the professional languages that are related to the themes of our translations.
- We read the professional literature and attend professional conferences, presentations organized by PROFORD (Hungarian Association of Professional Language Service Providers).
- We also use webinars organized by PROZ and Kilgray, and we follow the activities of Hungarian and foreign professional forums.
6; We use modern technology, by which we can translate recurring text types consequently.
- At MET Kft., in order to enhance the accurate and consequent use of technical terms, we use MemoQ computer-assisted translation tool.
- Naturally, it does not do the job instead of the translator, however, it speeds up the translation process and makes it more accurate by sequencing and presenting the text in a logical layout.
- We prepare an own terminological database (it is like an own dictionary) to each translation job by memoQ, which we carefully save.
- Thus, when you place new orders for translation (even weeks or months later), we will be able to use those technical terms that were previously accepted and requested by you, in a consequent way.
- It is especially helpful for the translation of the recurring text types of returning customers, e.g.: presentations, user manuals, websites, menus, letters, etc.
7; We will check your translation carefully
- After finishing your translation, we will do Quality Control on the text by a special CAT software.
- It filters missing or unnecessary words, as well as names and numbers that are not the same in the original text and the translation.
- As the software corrects the text mechanically, our project manager will read the target and source texts once more in a parallel view.
- Then, we will read the translated text once more to check its style and smoothness of the text. We are ready to rearrange some of our sentences once more to improve the smoothness of the text and/or to reflect the original intention of its author as accurately as possible.
- Finally, we will perform a spell-check on them in order to avoid any possible mistranslation or a typo.
- If we translate your text, there will be no need for proofreading (correction). You will be able to use the translation and publish it even abroad.
8; We are quick and always meet deadlines.
- As our fast-moving, modern world – especially the business sector – demands all jobs to be completed quickly and punctually by their deadlines.
- We only charge extra for urgent translations to be done within 24 hours and we undertake translation jobs for weekends as well.
- We guarantee that during our agreement with you on the details of the translation job, we only accept such deadlines, which we can reconcile with keeping our quality standards.

- For proofreading, we charge only 50% of the amount, which the translation of the same text would cost.
