Questions that may appear before placing the order

When Will Work on My Translation Project Begin?

We are getting started on your Project immediately after your payment is received (depending on payment method) or as agreed in the negotiation process before the start of the project.

Why Hasn’t Work Started on My Project?

Please remember that our translators are native speakers. Because of this, many of them live in their native countries, e.g., our Spanish translators live in Spain, Mexico, Central, and South America. That is why time zones do become a factor. We try to ensure that your translation starts not later than within 4 business hours. However, this can translate into several non-business hours, especially in the evenings or on weekends. Translations can also be delayed if there is an issue with the instructions or documentation provided. This might include a problem with word count, or an order submitted under the wrong category.

How Soon Will I be Able to Receive my Finished Project?

We have implemented a system that guarantees available translators are always connected to us. When we receive an order, the proper translators receive notification automatically. Be assured that your translator will work hard to deliver your order on or before your deadline. It is possible to divide a single large order into several smaller orders. This ensures that work is being completed on all deliverables at once.

Who Translates My Materials?

At TheWordPoint, we have developed a community of translation professionals. We work with language professionals located all over the globe. Before working with any translator, we diligently verify their credentials, and manually certify each one. In addition to this, our ongoing performance rating system is designed to ensure quality.

Who Is Going to See My Documents?

Because of privacy concerns, we limit the people who have access to our client’s documents. Only your translator and a member of our quality assurance team will see your information. The translator views the documents, of course, in order to complete the work you have ordered. The QA team member ensures that quality standards have been met. If you have opted to use our proofreading services, a proofreader will also view both the original and the translated documents.

Where Do I Submit Any Special Requests?

If you have special requests or instructions once your Project has been placed, you can use the live chat feature or chat on your project to let our support team know what you need. Try to be as clear as you can when providing special instructions.

How Will the Translation Be Formatted?

Your translator will make every reasonable effort to ensure that your document is formatted like your original document. If you send us an editable copy of your original, we are much more able to retain that format. If you have a specific formatting need, please inform us.

What If I Only Need to Translate a Portion of a Document?

If you need a part of the document to be translated we recommend you to send a request to our Support Team. Please provide the document for translation along with the translation related details in your request.

Who Do I Contact If I Have Technical Difficulties

Our customer service staff is available 24 hours per day. They will walk you through any issue that you may be having, or they will connect you with someone who is qualified to help you.

What Do I Do If I Am Not Happy with My Final Product?

Then, you may request any needed modifications. If that doesn’t resolve your issues, we can assign your Project to a new translator. This is done at no cost to you.

What Are The Requirements to Become a Translator?

Because we have such high standards when it comes to accuracy and speed, we hire only the best translators. This means our specialists must have several years of experience as translators.
