Translation services

In today’s society, the most successful businesses are those who have a global strategy. Regardless of your industry, product or company focus, communication is key. Our global network of offices works in partnership with you to support your international information strategy; helping you to achieve optimum growth. When you need translation services, STAR has the expertise and knowledge to deliver the quality you expect.

Why should I use a professional translation services company?

Increasingly, teams are made up of employees from all over the world and it seems logical to make the most of their language skills when translations are required. However, when these initial translations deliver business growth, translation requests can take over their schedule and leave them no time to work on their original job function. A professional translation services company can free up your resources to work on other tasks and can deliver the extra capacity you need, right when you need it.

Instead of relying on browser-based translation tools that risk the security of your data, you can send your texts for translation safe in the knowledge that you will receive a professional service from qualified experts.

FAQs

Our translators work exclusively into their native language because they have a complete mastery of this language gained from birth, and a sound grasp of its nuances. No matter how comfortable somebody is speaking or writing in their second language, there will be always be little clues here and there revealing that they are not a native speaker, and this impacts quality.

Yes! We’ll translate anything for anyone, whether they send it by email, post or bring it in personally.

Translation memory (TM) software presents stored translations from previous projects to the translator during translation, allowing the translator to decide whether or not to accept or edit the suggested translation for use in the current job. Machine translation (MT) is the automated translation of text by computers, without the use of human translators. When a professional translation company uses MT, they will usually have a post-editing step in their workflow to ensure the translation is accurate.
