What is LOCALIZATION?
Amancay Traducciones caters to an international market across a great variety of sectors, each of which has its own distinctive terminology, style and structural characteristics.
This means that an agency such as Amancay, which translates into 35 world languages, has to have a vast expertise in cultural, idiomatic and linguistic differences, which allows it to offer localization services for the linguistic adaptation of texts and projects to specific target markets.
WHAT CAN BE LOCALIZED??
Television and print advertising, publishing, web content and other media,
internationally marketed software, operating systems, apps, applications and programs are just some of the materials that can be localized.
Amancay Traducciones provides for the localization of these and a wide variety of other materials, including technical manuals, product labelling and whole websites.
The contents of a multi-lingual website must be adapted to the linguistic and cultural characteristics of the languages of its intended users. The style, tone, scripting components and search terms, which allow optimal positioning on search engine result pages, among other elements, have to meet the stringent requirements and expectations of target markets.
Revision and linguistic adaptation are essential to offering a high-quality product that is comprehensive and efficient in its intended use in targeting each and every country.
THE IMPORTANCE OF PROOFREADING AND REVISION
Proofreading and revision is especially relevant in the localization and linguistic adaptation of marketing and promotional messages, of texts encoded in other alphabets, scripts and numbering systems, of various writing forms (e.g. right to left, top to bottom) and of texts with programming and web development elements such as tags, meta tags and much more.

HOW IS THE COST OF TRANSLATION CALCULATED?
Costs are always calculated per word in the source language, except in the case of languages with different alphabets (such as Chinese or Arabic), where costs are calculated per word in the target language. However, some Italian translation agencies base their calculations on a standard unit of 1,500 or 1,250 characters spaces included. For your information, the standard unit in the Italian language corresponds to around 180 to 200 words.
CAN YOU INVOICE US AS USUAL?
Of course! Ordinary invoices are sent at the end of the month by email (in PDF format). Invoices issued to customers residing in the European Union are exempt from VAT and customs excise.
HOW ARE PAYMENTS MADE?
Payments can be made via bank transfer with an Italian IBAN, Paypal or Skrill (ex Moneybookers).
HOW CAN I TRUST THE QUALITY OF THE TRANSLATION?
Simple: try us out. We are at your disposal for a free trial of up to 100 words, that you are free to check with third parties.
WHAT FILE FORMATS DO YOU ACCEPT AND HOW DO I GET THEM TO YOU?
We accept all file types, both text and graphics, which are normally sent via email. For painless transfer of large files, we can make freely available an FTP folder on our server. The translated texts will be then sent in the same format as received.
Accepted file formats include Microsoft Office, Open Office, Adobe Illustrator, Corel Draw, PDF, HTML and other files.
WHAT ARE THE PAYMENT ARRANGEMENTS?
Payment arrangements are agreed separately with each client.
