What makes us your ideal partner for German translations? Here are a few things:
Fees and turnaround
No two projects are the same, so the fees and turnaround times for our German translations will depend on several factors: subject matter, your deadline, format, if you need a hard copy or not, etc. One thing we do promise: you will know in advance how much it will cost and when we can deliver.
Translation process step by step (from enquiry to delivery)
Here's what we do at our end once you have decided to get in touch:
The more we know about you and your needs, the smoother the process, the better the quality.
Not that kind of proposal, though we have translated love letters and wedding vows before 🙂.
Approval and queries
If the fee fits your budget and you agree with the delivery date, all we need is your written approval (an email will usually suffice) and we can get started.
Our language ninjas will research, adapt, write, rewrite, use online and offline tools in order to come up with the best solution.
With fresh eyes, the German translator will check the text and make corrections and edits as needed.
Editing and proofreading
This step is optional and it will add a second German translator to the team, who will check the translation against the source.
Approval of edits
If applicable, the amended text is reviewed once more by the translator, who will approve or reject proposed changes.
The final translation is checked by the project manager to ensure it complies with your requirements, it is complete and accurate.
Pretty self-explanatory, right? It’s the moment you’ve been (im)patiently waiting for: that ‘ping’ in your inbox telling you your translation is ready.
Any comments or questions that we can address are always welcome. If there are any small changes needed, we offer two rounds of amends.
A few facts about the German language:
It is one of the world’s leading languages, being the most spoken language in the EU. The German language also shares common lingual roots with both Dutch and English. Its vocabulary is also derived from the Indo-European language family. In fact, several German words are derived from Greek, Latin, and French as well. Its alphabet has 26 letters, and is written and based on the Latin alphabet. In addition to Europe, German is widely spoken in Africa, North America, South America, Oceania, and even Polynesia.

Inbox Translation were recommended to me by another translation company that couldn't help me in the tight timeframe I had requested (just 4 days to translate 2 x reports from German to English). They responded very quickly to my email request, asked all the right questions, their quotation came through very quick and, with great communications, they managed my expectations - within 1 hour we had agreed a contract. Inbox Translation delivered my translated documents on time with no fuss. I consider their service to be first class and their fees to be good value for money. I will definitely use their services again and will not hesitate to recommend them to my associates.
I commissioned a small project from Alina involving translation of English text into Simplified Chinese, Brazilian Portuguese and Spanish for use online by a client in the travel sector. Really happy with the results and the friendly, efficient and prompt communication from Alina. I'd happily recommend her services to others and will definitely use again the future.
We utilised the services of Inbox Translation for English to Arabic translations of some our hotel marketing material. We were extremely impressed with the prompt response of the quotation and the translation as well as the feedback we received from the translator regarding any suggestions. I highly recommend Inbox Translation and will definitely be working with them again in the future.
We used Inbox Translation for some urgent work – not only did they translate the copy 12 hours, but the cost was highly competitive. We will use them for any future translation work and would not hesitate to recommend them to other companies. Thank you to Alina for the fantastic job!
