Offering translation and proofreading in combinations of English, French, and German, Genial Translations refers to itself as "a network of freelance linguists." They appear to have a stronger academic focus than do many professional translation services, and they list their specialities as "academic, scientific, business, and marketing" translations.
Genial Translations is owned by two German translators, who complete some of the translations themselves and source others to their network. According to the Genial Translations website, their pool of freelance collaborators consists of approximately a dozen native linguists for each language pair.
The fact that Genial Translations focuses on just three languages and has a relatively small pool of collaborating linguists may be a plus in terms of quality assurance, as compared to larger professional translation services which often take a "factory" approach, sourcing documents to a huge database of translators who are selected for each project based on price, availability, and general profile criteria. (Consider one industry leader which boasts of "an external network of more than 25,000 translators" -- with a network of that size, we wonder how exclusive the selection process of this giant company could possibly be).
On the other hand, we do see a potential risk in a setup where the same person is performing the roles of translator and project manager, thereby removing a layer of supervision and control.
The Genial Translations website specifies that every translation they manage is proofread by a second translator. This is an important quality assurance step and something to look for when choosing a translation service. Genial Translations promises to deliver "error-free, stylistically professional translations with 100% consistency."
Genial Translations publishes information about its typical translation rates, as follows.
- General texts: typically EUR 0.13 to EUR 0.15 (about USD $0.18 to USD $0.21) per word.
- Texts with special requirements in terms of style or technical expertise: EUR 0.15 - EUR 0.17 (about USD $0.21 to USD $0.23) per word.
- Highly specialized texts: up to EUR 0.20 (about $0.28) per word.
The client references listed by Genial Translations include World Wildlife Fund, the German Federal Press Office, the German Federal Ministry of Economics and Technology, and Toshiba, among others.
