Why are we ATA members?

Translation service providers have become very common today. This is because translation has now become a necessity for many people. People need translation services for their immigration applications or business expansion, for medical reasons, or for communicating with foreigners and sharing information with them for other research fields.

Translators and interpreters were not found as quickly as they are today. People have started to consider this a profession, and people who love and admire languages become translators and help people by doing what they are passionate about.

American Translators Association is an organization that has been established to promote the profession of translators and interpreters. This organization helps groom translators and allows them to excel in their fields. This organization is the perfect support service for almost 10,000 translators and interpreters from 100 countries.

The programs offered here contribute significantly to helping professional translators and interpreters develop strong translation skills and learn new strategies and technologies to be experts in their profession.

Highly accurate translation and localization for business

The translation service provider must thoroughly know the targeted country for the perfect website localization. A playful punch you use in your advertisements in the United States of America might be offensive to people in China. Therefore, proper knowledge is required before localizing a website. The website’s infrastructure has to be similar to that country’s existing sites. People do not like complexities, and new infrastructure would mean they have to understand it first, and they would instead go for a website they know how to use. The color scheme, the template, and the images must all be used according to the foreign country’s culture.

Linguistic and Cultural Knowledge

The best localization services are provided by translation service providers who have translators on board with solid linguistic knowledge and proper cultural knowledge. For perfection in localization, you must thoroughly understand the cultures and traditions of the country you wish to spread the roots of your business. The team members of UTS have the right amount of cultural knowledge that helps them carry out the localization services perfectly and error-free.

Well Aware of Cultures and Customs

Understanding the cultures and customs is also very important when localizing businesses. We have expert translators from different parts of the world who know the cultures and traditions of different countries. This helps us in providing ATA translation and localization services that are reliable.

Experienced translators for any field

When localizing a business, only the websites or the software do not have to be translated and localized; the documents, as well as the marketing campaigns as well as advertisements have to be made according to the culture, traditions, customs, and habits of the country you wish to spread into.

The Same is the scenario when it comes to software localization. The user interface of software plays a vital role in popularizing it. Therefore, when carrying out software localization, design the software user interface according to the types already being used in the country. It should be easy to understand for the people so they can easily connect.

These are all very complex tasks, and only translators who are experts in this field and know much about the cultures can do this. At Universal Translation Services, ATA members are on board who are experts in the field of translation and localization services. So, if you wish to globalize your business or want to have the best ATA translation certification for your immigration documents, you must opt for a service that has experts on board, just like us.

If your particular translation requirement needs a professional translator, there is no better way to do that than to go with an ATA-certified translator or an ATA-certified translation agency. The American Translators Association is considered the most prestigious association for translators, and so is their certification program. With their rigid translation standards, they only pass the candidates about whom they ensure competence for translation in the professional world. So, you can stay assured that choosing an ATA-certified company or a translator over a freelance translator is always a better option.

Even though ATA certification status gives a translator an edge over its competitors, it is not the only measure for judging a translator’s proficiency.

Consider this: you have just completed your education at your university. Now, you hold a degree in mechanics. You are an engineer now, and you are pretty good at it, but then you get an invitation from Tesla, and after their workshop, they award you with a certification. So now you are an engineer that’s Tesla certified. That’s what ATA is for translators: an extra certification that can add to their qualifications but is not a measure of competence or qualification.

No, it is not necessary for translators. Most translators are not ATA-certified. The pass rate for ATA exams is less than 15%.

ATA or American translators Association allows translators to polish their skills under their evaluation system. Translators who pass their exams are awarded a certification stating that the translator is competent, possesses the right knowledge to be a professional translator, and fulfills the translation education requirements.

At UTS, we provide certified translations for many language combinations including Spanish to English translation. We are an ATA-certified company with many certified translation services for all documents.
