Translation & Interpretation
MerkadoTeknia Research and Consulting provides translation and interpretation services from English to Spanish or Spanish to English. Our specialized staff can translate discussion guides, screener questionnaires, documents, and conduct simultaneous interpretation (U.N. Style) on-site or in other markets.
Our highly trained staff of native Spanish speakers will translate and transcribe any of your documents, with the highest attention to detail. Our team is capable of going beyond simply translating or transcribing, they are able to transcreate any document to ensure that the message is clear and consistent with local dialects.
We have the capability to transmit interpreted language to up to 12 wireless receivers (*more if requested).
Transcreation goes beyond simply translating a piece of work. Some people may think that using a translation program is enough, but often the result may be inaccurate or too literal, leaving the reader confused.
When transcreating, we adapt your message from one language to the other while still maintaining the style, context and intent of the original text (as in advertising, medical or legal text).
In following this process, we will take into account the dialect of your intended audience and provide them with text that is easy to understand. Our team of native Spanish speakers have a deep understanding of the language and dialect ensuring the best results possible.
