At Gaston Murdock, we follow a five-step process to guarantee accuracy, clarity and timely delivery:
Determine the client's needs. Do you require a short summary of what's on the page or a bright and shiny print-ready document? Our first step is to help you decide what you need. We'll save you time and money by making sure you're buying the right service.
Assess the text. An annual report. A breezy and informal blog entry. A carefully worded speech. Each requires different vocabulary, style and formatting. We determine the time and resources we'll need to produce a flawless text.
Research terminology.Technical vocabulary is thoroughly researched using document comparison, industry glossaries and international databases. We closely follow trends in our areas of specialization and keep on top of the latest terminology.
Craft the translation.Our state-of-the-art software preserves the original formatting, so your translation looks exactly like the document you sent to us. We also maintain customized glossaries for regular clients. Once the initial draft is complete, a reviser checks the text and polishes the details.
Dot the i's and cross the t's. Would you like some American color or do you prefer to keep your British honour? Our experienced copyeditors check the spelling and grammar, inspecting every semicolon, ellipsis, and Oxford comma. Unless otherwise requested, at Gaston Murdock we follow the rules of the Canadian Style Guide. This final step ensures your document is ready for publication when we deliver it to you.
