Commercial translations

Falling within the area of translations for the economic and commercial sector is the service of translating documents that deal with topics regarding international trade (business of companies that buy and sell products and services on foreign markets) and financial documents (linked to the business of banks and credit institutes).
Babelex is a valid team of professional translators – in Milan – experts in commercial translations. In recent years we have witnessed an increase in requests of this specific type of translations. Certainly the opening of markets, the phenomenon of globalisation and the ever increasing and massive presence of the web, are decisive factors that have considerably intensified and speeded up commercial relations among companies – and in more general terms, relations among individuals.

New business opportunities

Today, for a company, being able to sell its own products and services in fertile foreign markets is a great opportunity of business and expansion of its own activities. An entrepreneurial attitude and choice capable for really making a difference, but in order to fully seize this opportunity it is necessary to communicate in an optimal way with foreign realities. We know full well that in the economic and commercial sector – as in all sectors, – documents such as regulations, agreements, conventions, but also more simply technical expressions and ways of saying, change from Country to Country.

Below we go into these aspects concerning commercial translations in more detail:

  • The contribution of the translation service to the success of a commercial negotiation;
  • The professional characteristics of our translators;
  • The correct management of sensitive documents;
  • The linguistic tools and techniques adopted;
  • The constant attention to the correct compliance of the translations to the original text;
  • The different types of commercial translations.


Our contribution to the success of a commercial negotiation

The commercial translation service is doubtlessly a delicate business. The quality of the work carried out by a professional translator, expert in commercial translations, contributes to the success of a financial negotiation. Babelex is able to provide economic and commercial translations of a high standard, thanks to the ability to faithfully reproduce the text in the requested language. A translation into commercial English, for example, requires a wide linguistic knowledge above all regarding technical terms. We are convinced that a team of professional translators must put its own clients in the condition to understand the translated text perfectly, so as to carry out all the evaluations necessary for concluding a deal positively. In most cases, negotiating a deal with a company or with foreign professionals is a long and complex business. Often in order to reach a final agreement numerous texts, documents, letters of intent, contracts, etc. must be translated with speed and accuracy in order to give the client the chance to communicate just as fast with its own commercial partners.

The linguistic tools and techniques adopted

Commercial translations are some of the most requested and delicate of the translation services offered by Babelex. Our professional translators and experts in the sector guarantee the correct terminological and linguistic coherence thanks to their professional skills, but also through specific technical and linguistic tools refined over the years:

  • The use and if necessary consultation of the so-called translation memories (called in English Translation Memory or more simply with the acronym TM), or of specific linguistic and terminological databases, updated periodically, used in specific software, the aim of which is to assist and contribute effectively to the translation process.
  • In specific cases, the use of topical sector dictionaries and glossaries.


The compliance of translations to the original text

Constant attention to the minimum details and the correct compliance of the translated document with the text in the original language – both in terms of style and language and in terms of specific terminology – guarantee an impeccable translation service.
The commercial translations carried out by Babelex, comply with specific requisites: accuracy, maximum attention and efficacy. The reason for this accuracy derives from the need to emphasise certain fundamental aspects present in a document relating to the economic and commercial sector, including:

  • Aspects relating to selling, which is a rather delicate type of activity and held in great consideration by the client;
  • The communication of the strong points of a service or a product;
  • Absolute attention in recording figures and correct data, complying perfectly to those in the text in the original language;
