Q: “What is a translation?”
Is it just taking a word or a sentence and translating it into another language?
A: – It goes beyond that. A good translation conveys not the literal but the intended meaning of the original. At inlingua you are tapping into a wide array of professional translators who have undergone extensive academic training and screening to ensure the standard of quality you expect for your documents. They work hard to make sure that the translation produces the same effect as the one intended by the original text.
Whatever the translator was shooting for on that one, it went terribly off-track.
When in doubt, inlingua will tend more towards language that is streamlined and direct, always keeping in mind the final audience for the work.
