Urgent English to Vietnamese Literary Translation
JUN 14, 2017
By Ofer Tirosh
With more speakers than any other language in the Austroasiatic family, Vietnamese is used both in Vietnam and in the USA, where it is the seventh most spoken language. Despite its firm roots in classical Chinese and substantial similarities to Cantonese, Vietnamese has evolved to be written with the Latin alphabet, with diacritics added for tones.
Tomedes was recently asked to undertake a Vietnamese translation by a client looking to convert her novel from English into Vietnamese. Part of the work was set in Vietnam and she wanted to be able to present it to Vietnamese-speaking audiences as well as English-speaking ones.
Literary translation requires a keen eye for detail. The sheer size of literary translation projects mean that translators must take extra care to ensure continuity throughout the text, just as the author must do.
For this project, the author was in a hurry and so opted for our urgent translation service. This meant that her work was immediately assigned to one of our speediest literary translators, whose native, flawless Vietnamese was ideally suited to the task at hand.
The client was delighted with the speed at which the translation of her novel progressed. She was also thrilled with the translation rate charged by Tomedes for this work, as it offered exceptional value for money. This is one area on which our translation agency prides itself – we have designed our business model to minimize overheads, which means that we can pass these translation cost savings on to our clients.
Our Vietnamese translator worked diligently to complete the translation of the client’s novel in record time, resulting in another very happy customer.
