Specialised in a number of specific fields listed on the page Areas of expertise, Anna Marteau delivers translations of outstanding quality of any type of document written in English, Dutch or French. She only translates into her mother tongue, Dutch, and into her second active language, French, which she now masters like her mother tongue thanks to her high-level language studies, more than 27 years of professional experience and an even longer well-integrated life in France.

Translations into English are carried out in cooperation with a team of external and independent translators, only translating into their mother tongue.

Localisation

In this digital era your clients and prospects expect your products and services to be presented and described in their own language or at least in a language they understand. It has become vital for the competitiveness of your products and services.

In this context it may be necessary to adapt the content of your website, software or commercial or technical documents to the specific language, culture and techniques of the target countries.

This is known as localisation.

Translation is one of the stages of this process, contributing to giving the impression that the web site, software or document was written specifically for the target market.

  • websites
  • software
  • video games
  • specification sheets
  • technical manuals
  • product catalogues
  • marketing brochures
  • other commercial documents

Whatever your localisation needs may be, if you want quality results, call Anna Marteau. She has the skills, know-how, equipment and tools that are needed to meet your requirements and guarantee high-quality and consistent translations and terminology.

Proofreading, revising and updating existing translations

Publishing or submitting documents that contain spelling mistakes, grammatical errors or terminology errors can have a catastrophic effect because they give an impression of imperfection that can affect the image you wish to project, the image of a professional and efficient business.

Trust an experienced professional to check, correct and improve the impact of your documents in English, Dutch and French.

Revision of your website before it goes live, brochures, technical manuals, printer’s proofs, etc.

N.B.: Correcting translations of poor quality or that have been done by machine translation generally need to be completely rewritten, so they will be invoiced as for a translation service.

Sworn translations

A sworn translation is a certified true translation of the original document, translated and certified by a Court certified translator (also called Court appointed expert or Sworn translator), who affixes his/her official stamp and signature both on the original document and its translation. Court certified translators have the right and obligation to affix their stamp only on translations they carried out themselves.

As a Court certified Expert accredited by the Court of Appeal of Poitiers for translations from and into English, Dutch and French, Anna MARTEAU is authorized to deliver sworn translations of all your administrative, legal, notarial, tax and any other official documents.

These sworn translations are valid and recognized in France, in Europe and, under certain specific conditions, in other foreign countries.

If your documents are intended for a foreign authority or administration, the authentication of the expert’s signature may be required, depending on the country. As the expert has to go to a town hall or a notary’s office to have his/her signature authenticated, additional costs will be charged for this extra service.
