Document Translation

The use of documents in today’s society is a fundamental element of our communication system. Documents form the basis of our economy, educational systems, governments and everyday lives. Without documentation, whether paper or electronic, our society would not work properly and we could not advance as a civilization.

Therefore, one of the core services offered by SLS is document translation services. We have translated all types of documentation (electronic and paper), including, but not limited to: contracts, correspondence, medical records, marketing brochures, government documents, judicial rulings, technical manuals, educational materials, legal filings, website text, e-mails, software-related documentation, books, advertisements, public notices, non-profit related text, financial information, licenses, divorce decrees, birth certificates, transcripts, diplomas, pharmaceutical materials, blogs, news feeds, magazines, etc.

Industry Experts in all Kinds of Documentation

Depending on the type of documentation and the underlying subject matter, SLS will assign linguists with industry expertise who match the needs of your project. This ensures that your final translation will have the correct industry terminology and thus communicate the original content to your target reader more efficiently.
