A top-three law firm based in the Amsterdam Financial Mile.
Translation of 50 pages (approx. 12,000 words) of complex legal and financial text from Dutch to English within 24 hours.
This assignment was incredibly urgent – under normal circumstances, it would take us a week to deliver a similar project. So the clock was ticking fast and the combined legal and financial nature of the text magnified the complexity of the project. Also, because the source documents were scanned PDFs, it was not possible to use translation software due to the extremely tight deadline.
Firstly, our project manager separated the legal documents from the financial documents. The legal documents were sent to two legal translators, and the financial documents were sent to financial translators. All of the translations were carefully examined by a single proofreader and delivered on time, enabling the law firm to discuss the translation with their client.
