While audio translation has not taken off at quite the incredible pace that video translation has over the last few years, there is still plenty of demand for expert audio translators. Here at Tomedes, we shape our translation services around our clients’ needs, so have a bank of experienced audio translation professionals on hand.
Most recently, a client called on us to provide a Vietnamese translator for his audio files. We sprang into action to help him out.
Professional Vietnamese Translation Services
The Tomedes team has spent over a decade translating content for clients all over the world. During that time, we’ve had time to develop a network of highly experienced, native Vietnamese translators. Our policy is to always seek to use native speakers of the target language, as this results in higher quality translations.
Vietnamese is a language with a fascinating history. The language has been significantly influenced by Chinese languages and the written form used to be based on Chinese characters. Modern-day Vietnamese, however, is written using the Latin alphabet, while education in Vietnam uses the Hanoian dialect.
All languages evolve over time and Vietnamese is no exception. A tonal language, it is expanding to incorporate new words from the science and technology sectors, as well as words that have sprung into common usage as a result of social media. Many of these words undergo ‘Vietnamization,’ where they are adapted to sound Vietnamese during their incorporation into the language.
When it comes to Vietnamese translation, our service covers a wide range of sectors, from financial translation to the automotive industry. In the case of this client, it was a Vietnamese audio translation expert that he needed. This meant that we not only needed someone with exceptional language skills, but with top notch audio translation skills. Thankfully, we knew just the right translator for the job.
Audio Translation for Business Clients
Our audio translation expertise is well known (you can read about another example of our audio translation work by clicking the link below). We’ve worked with audio files on a huge range of topics over the years and excel at delivering beautifully transcribed, translated content.
For those who are new to audio translation, we should take a moment to explain the process. Before the audio translation can begin, the translator usually needs to transcribe the audio file in the original language. While it’s certainly possible to translate without a written script (just think of how interpretation services work), it’s incredibly useful to have one. This is particularly true for long recordings or those with poor sound quality, where it helps to be able to reference the content of earlier parts of the file in order to ensure consistency of terminology throughout the translation. With a transcription to hand, this is much easier to do.
Once the audio file has been transcribed, the translation work can begin in earnest. This is where superb language skills are required, which is why Tomedes pays such close attention to the quality of our translators and their specific expertise. Doing so allows us to match the right translator to each translation that we work on.

Customer Service as a Top Priority
One of the reasons that we’re so committed to pairing our translators closely with the work that we undertake is our focus on customer service. Ever since its inception, over ten years ago, Tomedes has upheld the delivery of excellent customer service as a key priority.
This approach influences everything that we do. It means that we go the extra mile to deliver top quality translations on time, every time. It’s the reason that we offer a 24/7 support service, so that clients can get hold of us in any time zone, at any time of day or night.
Our focus on providing fantastic customer service also means being flexible in order to deliver precisely what our clients want. For some clients, that means telephone support, while others prefer to connect by email. Many of our clients also appreciate the convenience of using a live chat service, so we offer one of those too.
Then there’s our array of additional services. From desktop publishing to content writing, we can provide so much more than translation alone. This means that our clients can enjoy a one-stop-shop for language services, all backed by a customer service ethos that’s designed to delight every step of the way. It worked perfectly in the case of this client’s Vietnamese audio description – he was thrilled with both the quality of the translation and with our service.
