8. Why do you get human translations while Google offers it for free?

Machines translate literally and hence cannot maintain accuracy in the translation. Very often machine translations become as difficult to understand as the original text in foreign languages. As of now translation is something that only human brain can do with perfection.  Machine translations cannot deliver reliable translation quality.

We regularly update you on the status of the work.

11. How about confidential documents?

We can commit confidentiality by signing an NDA (Non disclosure agreement) with you to maintain the confidentiality of the documents. We legally bind the translators with NDA before sharing a sample, or assigning a project to them.

No, that is not necessary. We rather prefer working with photocopies of the documents. We also accept scanned soft copies in image or PDF format of the hard copies.
