Technical Writing

It’s increasingly common for Asia based companies to author their content using non-native English writers. This can lead to impressions of poor quality, confusion and increased support costs. TranslateNow’s native English speaking writing teams help edit content and ensure that both language and presentation are suitable for Western audiences. This also has a major impact on quality when translating into other locales around the world. For more information on TranslateNow’s writing and editing services contact us at

Customer Comments

“I’ve tried many of the “name” suppliers and it’s nice to finally find someone that gets my medical device translation requirements. TranslateNow provided not only linguistically accurate, certified translations but also on-time delivery and pretty amazing customer service. I always receive quotes and schedules in less than a day. Upper management also loves the fact that using TranslateNow saves 20-30% which makes me look good:-) I’ll be using TranslateNow for all of our future projects”

Their knowledge of the software market from the reseller level up through design and engineering provided a complete go-to-market perspective. They were always forthright with their development direction was consistently reliable in meeting delivery expectations. I have worked with their CEO several times at different companies, and expect to hire again in the future”
