Translators at Kvaløy Nettverk transfer the meaning in the source language into the target language in order to produce a text that is in accordance with the rules of the linguistic system of the target language and that meets the instructions received.

Throughout this process, translators focus on:
  • a) Terminology: compliance with specific domain and client terminology, or any other terminology provided, as well as terminology consistency throughout the whole translation

  • c) Lexis: lexical cohesion and phraseology

Upon completion of translation, translators shall check the translation for omissions and confirm that the defined parameters have been met. All necessary amendments need to be implemented.

The reviser shall examine the translation for its suitability for purpose.

We take all corrective measures necessary to amend the translation or to retranslate, when applicable, in accordance with our internal procedures.
