Translation related services

Checking

The IML provides a checking service for translations completed by accredited translators. In order to do this, our translator will need to view the source document and the translation. The translator will suggest amendments or improvements. The original translator considers these suggestions, accepting amendments if they agree, and produces a final file.

Alternatively, a written report can be provided to provide an overall view on the quality of the work. Checking cannot be done on machine translations (such as Google translate) which are currently usually ineffective and often incomprehensible.

Multi-lingual typesetting

The IML can arrange for translation and then professional typesetting of your business card, brochure, flyer, and other marketing documents to give you the professional finished product you require, in the language of your choice. Our standard process includes proof-reading of the final document by the translator, before delivery of the typeset file to you, to ensure it is ready to go to print.

There are two forms of written Chinese – Simplified Chinese (used in China, Singapore and Malaysia) and Traditional Chinese (used in Hong Kong, Taiwan, Macau and many overseas Chinese communities), but Simplified Chinese is gradually gaining popularity among overseas Chinese as more mainland Chinese emigrate and travel abroad. With China’s steady rise as a commercial powerhouse, the Chinese translation to and from English of business documents has become commonplace. The choice of Simplified Chinese or Traditional Chinese is vital in the Chinese translation from English, the geopolitical situation of the target audience of the Chinese translation determining which version of the Chinese language is employed.  IML Chinese translators are able to assist with all sorts of documents, from standard identity documents to import permits and more complex and technical documents.

JAPANESE TRANSLATION 
The Japanese language is the sixth most spoken language in the world. Thus Japanese translation and interpreting is highly sought after.

Taking into account these factors, a NAATI accredited, professional Malay translation can be provided by the IML.
