TRANSLATIONS AND RELATED LANGUAGE SERVICES

Why the name Polyglota?
Polyglota (from ancient Greek “polys”, numerous, and “glossa”, tongue) evokes the universal value of translation as a mean of contact between the peoples on Earth.
Without pretending to embrace “all the existing languages” which would imply an impossible pretension for any serious enterprise, but with the seriousness and character of someone who knows the importance of a well-done translation, ScriptArch's team devotes itself to offering a service which does pretend to be exhaustive, deep, specialized and focalised.

Which languages do you offer?
At this very moment, we offer Spanish, English, German and French, and their respective combinations. We provide Portuguese and Italian as well. The languages at our clients' disposal can become more as long as our clients request so and our contact nets allow us to increase our staff of professionals.

Which is the translation process?
ScriptArch has certified Public Translators. The texts to be translated are examined by a Translator specialized in the source and target languages of the text, together with at least one Professional of the specific field, who at the same time is fluent in both the source and target language.
Uniting knowledge and abilities we produce a text of optimal technical quality, true to the original.

How do we face terms of confusing or ambiguous meaning?
Whenever a term which translation could be excessively ambiguous for the context appears, we make the appropriate explanation with a footnote. If necessary, and after a brief exchange of emails with the client, we choose the most adequate word for the context, without this implying any extra cost for the client.

Which is the usefulness of the Correction Service?
First of all, whenever a client already knows a foreign language, he may write himself a text directly in said language and then want to make sure that the adequate vocabulary, grammar, syntax and even style has been used..
Secondly, if a client has already translated a text he may wish to have the same type of corrections done.

Does Polyglota offer any Interpreter Services?
ScriptArch's professionals are qualified to work as specialized technical consecutive interpreters. On demand we can also provide simultaneous interpretation for conferences. Top

ON-DEMAND RESEARCH SERVICES
Why the name Scriba?
The word Scriba is of Latin origin and means “scribe, secretary, writer”. It evokes the old amanuensis monks who used to spend long hours, days and even months copying books with great care and dedication – long before the mobile type press, tool par excellence for the diffusion of knowledge, was invented.
In our case, the comparison could not be simpler: in a world full of technology ready to help the working person, sparing time and energies, there remain tasks pending which the “thinking machines” cannot resolve thus demanding many hours of human work. Those tasks are our goal, systematizing what seems to be chaotical and disordered, putting “the shelves in order” and whatever else you could think of.

Is it a service of Higher Enterprise Organization?
Scriba does neither pretend to substitute the tasks inherent to a Director or a Manager position, nor make up for them.
Quite on the contrary, if we were to compare it to any part of your enterprise, Scriba corresponds to an intermediate level. We take care of your orders and consequently you have more free time to devote yourself to the present and future of your company, a task for which you are really irreplaceable.

Does Scriba offer any kind of Consulting?
Scriba is not a Consultancy in the traditional sense of the term but nevertheless its services can be of assistance in this direction.
Any Consultancy Service requires of stuff to do the work. You provide us with the “raw” stuff, and we deliver it back to you duly processed and classified.

Is Scriba just a professional service?
Apart from the help of our Professionals, Scriba has digitizers qualified in the use of several computer tools, which allows the processing of great volumes of data, tailored to your needs.
These digitizers are strictly controlled by their respective Technicians, so the result is optimally guaranteed. Top
