Since 2004, Dictyon has been providing outstanding translation services to countless government and corporate clients. We proudly enable our customers to meet some of their most complex and demanding needs through unwavering corporate commitment to excellence, skilled technical and management personnel and the utilization of technology-enabled solutions. Our core philosophy is to skillfully merge the talent, skills and expertise of our human resources with the most innovative technology and translation techniques.
The simple conversion of one language into another, using a word processor and perhaps a dictionary, is the image of translation that commonly abounds. While this scenario has some links with real life, the translation process is, in fact, far more complicated. Using computer-assisted translation tools, online and hard copy reference material (such as lexicons, dictionaries, thesauruses, text corpora, grammatical and style guides, legacy translations and/or approved glossaries) as well as conferring with colleagues and experts over colloquialisms and/or special terminology, the translation process is one that requires patience, attention to detail, and above all, in-depth knowledge of both the source and the target language.
Our core services include: translation, editing, desktop publishing (in all leading DTP Software, i.e. InDesign, QuarkXpress, MS Publisher, etc. and in all platforms, i.e. PC, Macintosh, and Linux), proofreading, mechanical reviewing, and transcription. We also provide especially customized services that include: translation memory maintenance, individualized glossary creation, alignment, certification, and notarization.
We have superb technical capabilities to provide the translation of written, electronic and multi-media material from source into target text, as well as a rich personnel roster to accommodate translation requests in more than 100 languages and dialects. We translate in every field of expertise, (e.g. legal/patents, financial/business, biomedical, technical/engineering, IT, art/literary, marketing, tourism/travel, games, social sciences, software localization, etc.) and our proven human and technical capabilities allow us to deliver exceptional end products, often under pressing deadlines.
Our work output comprises the translation of websites, formal correspondence, instructional posters, contracts, patents, legal documents, presentations, technical manuals, material safety data sheets, budgets, directories, reports, brochures, labels, certificates, transcripts, catalogs, marketing, literature, press releases, etc. To accommodate customary peaks in our workload, we use industry leading CAT tools installed on local area networks for simultaneous translation by multiple linguists. The utilization of shared translation memories allows for accelerated work pace, consistency and paramount efficiency. Reliance on effective technological resources enables us to complete and deliver single language-pair translation projects of up to 10,000 words each in a 24-hr time period.
In the fulfillment of all our translation task orders, whether at the service of our public or private sector clients, we employ our proven approach that skillfully combines human talent and experience, advanced technology, and top-of-the-line project management.
