The translation of books, poems and other works of fiction is an important function of a professional translation agency, such as the Arabic to English literary translation that Tomedes completed recently.
The client had spent several years working on his memoirs before publishing them in his native Arabic. His book was well received and sales were so strong that he decided to produce an English version of the book in addition to the Arabic version.
The client contact Tomedes and asked for a quote. This was a sizeable job, but Tomedes’ innovative business model means that our costs are always competitive. The client was pleasantly surprised with our quote and decided to proceed immediately.
We set our top Arabic to English professional translator, based in the English city of Bradford, to work. Tomedes always uses translators in the target language’s country, as this helps to ensure the high quality, flawless translation for which Tomedes has built itself such a reputation.
In just over a month, we translated the client’s book, proofread the translation and presented him with the final English version. He was delighted and has already begun selling his memoirs to the English-speaking market.
