FAQs
What languages do you offer?
Answer:
We translate to and from English, Vietnamese, Chinese, Korean and Japanese. When you place your order, you’ll be able to select your language for your own localization needs.
How long will my project take?
Answer:
Turnaround time depends on the length and complexity of your document(s). To accelerate the process, our linguists and proofreaders collaborate on smartCAT, a real-time translation platform. In this way, translation and proofreading happen simultaneously, resulting in quality work and speedy turnarounds. We’ll provide a timeline when we quote the project so you know exactly how long it will take and what it will cost.
Who will I work with?
Answer:
You’ll have a designated project manager as well as access to your translation team via your Dashboard.
What’s the Dashboard?
Answer:
Through our localization process, Thao & Co. offers complete transparency. We deliver on that promise by posting all project information on your Dashboard including price, linguist profiles, project status and a ChatBox©.
What’s the ChatBox© for?
Answer:
Our ChatBox© lets you communicate directly with your linguists – provide guidance, explain terminology, list requirements, answer their questions, etc.
How do you select the linguists for my project?
Answer:
All of our translations are done by highly qualified linguists. They’re native speakers and may have unique specialties, such as expertise in translating medical information or legal documents.
We pair you with the translator(s) who has the most experience relevant to your work. You’ll know who they are and their qualifications. And, as part of our collaborative process, you’re able to communicate with them at any time.
How do you track project progress?
Answer:
We use a cloud-based, real-time translation software application called smartCAT to track project progress by percentage. We also receive constant updates from our linguists.
Can I request revisions?
Answer:
You’ll have a chance to review your translation and provide feedback. Your linguists will happily make any changes you request. We want you to be 100% satisfied with your finished project!
