    Frequently Asked Questions


    What is editorial translation?

    Editorial translations cover many subject areas such as literary translation, the translation of published text, and other creative works such as books, magazines, newspapers etc.

    As a leading translation agency, we can translate your text into a number of global languages, such as English, French and Italian, meaning you can broaden your international readership.

    The key to success is to ensure that your language services partner can guarantee that a professional translator will work on your project. Espresso Translations can guarantee this and more. Not only will your copy be translated by a native translator, but it will be proofread by a second translator. We can also provide editing services as a third step so that your text is ready for publication.

    Are you a translation partner for publishing houses?

    The international outlook of the publishing industry also means that editorial language services are not limited to translation of the document itself. If you’re working with international authors or collaborating with foreign publishing houses, our industry-quality legal translation services can provide you with word-perfect contract translations so that you can rest assured your interests are protected throughout the publishing process, while our marketing translation experts can help you rework international marketing copy to suit a local market.

    When it’s a question of publishing content, we know that while accuracy and consistency are crucial, you also have to work to tough deadlines so that every other stage of the process, from copyediting to typesetting and proofreading, can take place. Due to this, at Espresso Translations we make it our mission as an editorial translation agency to deliver projects on time, every time, meaning that you never need to worry about the text we translate holding up the rest of the process.

    Do you provide rapid publishing translations?

    Maybe you require a rapid translation of a title whose rights you have just acquired in order to meet seasonal deadlines, or perhaps a quality translation of a few choice extracts to persuade senior editors to buy the rights in the first place.

    At our translation agency, as soon as we know your needs we will provide an accurate quote for your texts within the hour, so you don’t need to wait around.
