What about confidentiality...just how safe are my files with you?

Your privacy is paramount, and strict embargoes are strictly maintained. We take our cue from the LockPickingLawyer: your secrets are safe with us.

Can you translate directly into our CMS?

We frequently do. And that lets you know straight off just how much our customers trust us.

I need my translation sworn. Can you help?

Sworn translations entail a trail of red tape. And sometimes a road trip for the right stamps. The best thing you can do is find a sworn translator in your neighborhood. Click here to search by postcode.

Here’s a little something I wrote. I need to publish it on our international network. Can you help?

Sure! Our native speakers know how to spot a needle in a haystack (i.e., they’re pros at weeding out mistakes). And they’ll prune and trim your piece into a presentable, persuasive message while they’re at it.Tone. Syntax. Grammar. Word choice. Leave it to us.

How do you feel about post-editing and machine translation?

We deliver expert, hand-crafted translations. Consequently, all your content is handled by genuine flesh-and-blood folks. If worse comes to worst, we might use translation tech to jumpstart the little gray cells.

What file formats do you work with?

Adobe Indesign, PDF, awkward scrawling on the back of a beer coaster... We’re curious, and we aren’t stingy. If we haven’t got it in house or don’t know it, we’ll purchase and learn.

So, what language pairs do you work with?

You know sailors...they’ve got a sweetheart in every port. And at Maverick? We’ve got a translator for every language combination. It’s all about connections!

I trust you with my translations, but…do you do copy too?

Press releases, rebranding, blog posts, social media, you name it! Whether you hand us your own work to brush up on, a vague outline of what you’ve got in mind, or the briefing of our dreams: our copywriters are on standby to turn your content into gold.

Tell it to me straight. What'll it cost me?
