Professional Training and Consulting

It is surprising how many people believe that some of us are born to lead, speak in public, negotiate successful business deals, etc. – and that others of us simply do not make the cut.

In fact, what people who are successful in these areas have in common is a desire to learn the skills, the courage to practice them, and acceptance of the fact that they may sometimes get things wrong. They just do it over and over until they get it right.

There are learnable techniques – practical and practicable – that you can apply to your discourse in order to give yourself the edge in all your professional interactions.

Text Development

Text Development

Native-speaker readers of the language that a communication is written in generally expect text in their language to be succinct, clear, fluid, and error-free.

Written texts act on the reader's perceptions of the writer on both a conscious and subconscious level.

A written text “tells” a lot about your mastery of ideas, level of sophistication, education, attention to detail, and a multitude of other things – whether you expect it to or not.

In high-stakes situations, there isn't a lot of room for error. It can make a difference in how your first meeting goes and whether you have the edge, whether you get hired for a project or a job, and of course so much more.

We ensure that these subliminal matters are in sterling shape by the time your text reaches your reader.

Editing

What does an editor do?

There are many levels of editing, which range from proofreading to developmental editing.

Briefly, an editor should ensure at the very least that a text is error-free while a more involved project may require collaboration on ideas, content, and organization.

Whatever your requirements, your finished piece should be an engaging, bright, and flawless piece of prose that also retains your voice and spirit.

Translation and Transcreation

Translation and Transcreation

What's the difference?

Translation involves transforming a text from one language into another language. It is a mechanical linguistic process whose results can vary in excellence according to the skill of the translator (ours are at the top of their game).

With a translation, you should expect accuracy with regard to content and form (grammar, spelling, and punctuation); however, the tone, voice and style of the original text are not necessarily taken into account.

Transcreation involves not only translating your text from one language into another but also taking into account the cultural context of the original and the social responses it should evoke in the reader or readers. These signals necessarily vary from one culture to another.

The process of transcreation can require any of the following changes so that your text and any images resonate with your target audience as they are intended to:

- wording
- idiomatic expressions
- jokes
- phrasing
- cultural references
- images
- colors
- and more...

Transcreation is like a cultural and linguistic makeover in one.
