We understand the need for accuracy in interpreting and translation, and we also understand that your time is limited and valuable. That’s why we have a dedicated customer experience team ready to take your call, and an online scheduling portal available 24/7.
Our interpreters and translators have experience in a broad range of industry sectors, including healthcare, legal services, corporate, education, government, and marketing.
It’s not enough for an interpreter just to be proficient in the respective language. We carefully select language professionals based on their qualifications and expertise to ensure that your face-to-face interactions are being interpreted by someone who understands the terminology specific to your industry or situation.
American Sign Language
Individuals who are hearing impaired face particular challenges. We make sure that our professionally trained ASL interpreters understand those challenges, and are in the best possible position to facilitate effective communication.
Interpreting needs don’t always involve people in the same room and aren’t always easy to schedule in advance. We provide on-demand telephonic interpreting services so that you can have an interpreter serving your needs, 24 hours per day, 7 days per week.
The meaning of words can easily shift depending on context or intent. These subtle shifts are endlessly useful because they allow us to convey specific feelings, to express perspective, or to describe complex concepts. But words that are not chosen or used carefully can also cause confusion and misunderstanding.
That’s why, at Metaphrasis, we don’t translate we transCREATE. Rather than make literal word-for-word substitutions, which we believe sidestep other components of effective communication, we convey meaning as accurately as possible by adapting a message from one language to another in a way that maintains and fully communicates its intent, tone, and context.
The problem with many apps and websites is that they don’t go beyond providing literal word for word translations. When partnering with us, you will have access to a nationwide network of language professionals, including professionals certified by the American Translators Association (ATA), who understand how important it is to convey exactly the right meaning. For each translation project one translator performs a meaning-for-meaning translation of the text and a second checks the translated text for quality, integrity, and accuracy.
It’s likely that your website will be seen by people from other countries with different languages and alternative cultural expectations. It’s crucial that translations of your website take cultural variations into account. We pay careful attention to country-specific nuances, and local cultural standards and references, to ensure that you are providing the best possible customer experience for your website visitors.
Accurately transcribing spoken words to written text requires careful, critical listening and particular attention to nuance and syntax. We use expert transcriptionists and leading edge technology to provide live or post-production transcription services for meetings, conferences, video, interviews, conference calls, or anywhere else an accurate written record is required.
There are a lot of nuances to braille – different coding systems and conventions. We follow a process that meets or exceeds all of the standards set forth by the Braille Authority of North American (BANA), and pay close attention to the accurate transcription of audio, layout and production, and large print format documents into braille.
Vocal performance ability is critical to an effective voice-over. We have a team of experienced foreign language voice-over artists ready to perform for television, radio, audiobook, multimedia presentation, or wherever else they might be needed.
Language Proficiency Assessment
It can be convenient to have associates, employees, or affiliates who can provide for your language service needs, but you need to be sure that those needs are being delivered effectively. We have administered hundreds of language assessments, including both verbal and written proficiency exams, and will work with you to determine the testing solution that best meets your needs.
