As specialists, we offer a singular focus on translating Haitian Creole

Paperwork

However, this singular focus is an umbrella for a variety of services; including written translation, oral interpretation, voice over, transcription, cultural adaptation, market research, desktop publishing, document design, software localization, copy editing and proofreading, and proficiency testing. All in Haitian Creole.

While we follow the ATA’s code of Professional Conduct and Business Practices, our work process is unique in the industry: 

Our Process

Initial Review

We begin by assigning one of our linguists to read over the source material. By familiarizing ourselves with the content, we are able to visualize an outline that serves as a foundation for accurate and thorough translation.

Translation

This is the stage where the bulk of the work is performed. Our assigned linguist combines careful research and expertise to produce the first draft of content.

Editing

A second linguist performs a full revision of the first draft, Checking the syntax, grammar and readability of the document.

Proofreading

After the material is returned to the initial linguistic to validate the correction made by the second individual, a third member of our team reviews the material to make one last check for spelling errors.

Quality Assurance

The final review of the document before delivery. One last translator scans the document, eliminating any inaccuracies and inconsistencies that were missed from prior revisions.
