Translation Services to Academic Researchers

What Is Scientific and Academic Translation?

Scientific and academic translation is the process of translating documents pertaining to scientific research, academic papers, and technical documents from one language to another. Scientific translation involves a prominent level of technical knowledge and expertise, as the content is often complex and specialized. Scientific and academic translators must not only be fluent in the target language, but also possess a deep understanding of the subject matter and terminology involved. This type of translation includes, but is not limited to, research papers, dissertations, theses, technical reports, conference proceedings, and scientific journals.

How a Translation Agency Works
The process of scientific translation, localization and transcreation


Nordic-Baltic Scientific Translation Services

Academic text is written in non-fiction. This means that the text must be objective, correct and fact oriented. Writing academically also means taking a critical and analytical approach, i.e., that one asks questions and formulates problems. It is by being critical-analytical that you can contribute new perspectives on a topic, instead of simply reproducing what others have already written. This also applies to the translation of an academic text.

Translation of Academic and Scientific texts | Price per Word | Cheaper Than Other Nordic Translation Agencies

Depending on the language and subject area, a translation with us costs between EUR 0.08 - 0.18 per word. We offer professional translations, including language review and proofreading 20-25% cheaper than other translation agencies with offices in the Nordics. This is possible because we are a web-based company with a production office in Riga, Latvia, and thus can offer lower prices for your translations than other Nordic translation agencies. (In Sweden, our company is called Baltic Media Translations AB, F tax certificate: Org no. 556675-6499).

In addition, we can lower your translation costs even further with the help of our CAT tools.
