Why Romania is one of the best locations for outsourcing your translation and localization projects

We are not usually the ones to talk about ourselves too much, but we believe that we deserve to have a cheeky brag from time to time. This is not about our employees, nor about the fellow market competitors, but rather about Romanian linguists. So, you’re wondering what makes us so special besides the quality, fast turnarounds and low pricing? You could argue that we are rather biased when it comes to our country but hear us out: you’d be surprised about the linguistic capabilities of our people. It is well known that Romania is a goldmine when it comes to IT firms and when quality outsourcing solutions and highly advantageous prices are a priority, but what about the translation industry?

What is the difference between translation and transcreation

In the translation industry, there is a consensus that translators should only work in their mother tongue, no matter how fluent they might be in any other language, thus ensuring the linguistic nuances in their native language are kept. Many linguists have different qualifications, whether it is engineering, legal fields, economic or marketing and so on. This allows them to be good translators, since it helps them fully understand the texts even in highly specialized domains. Some translators can be more creative in their way of thinking and writing, which allows them to approach more projects in domains like marketing, media and advertising. For some certain texts, something more than translation is necessary – transcreation. This is all about taking one concept presented in a language and completely adapting it and recreating it in accordance with the nuances and cultural ideas that need to be found in the target language.
