We offer an extensive range of translation and editing services to suit every need

English to French and French to English Translation

Fox Translations specializes in translation in Canada’s official languages. Translations into Canadian French and English are done by in-house experienced and certified translators, specialized in their respective fields and subject matter.
We adapt and localize content aimed at the European or other regional French language audiences to ensure that our translations accurately reflect the cultural and linguistic characteristics of the target audience. Fox uses only residents and native speakers of the target market country, translators who are deeply familiar with the local habits and culture. Before local translators are entrusted with our customers’ documents, they undergo rigorous screening, testing and training.

Translation into Other Languages

We translate wide variety of content, from technical to financial, legal, general and administration, as well as personal documents like marriage certificates, school transcripts, police checks, etc. to and from Arabic, Chinese, Croatian/Serbian, Czech, Dutch, Farsi, German, Greek, Hungarian, Italian, Japanese, Korean, Polish, Portuguese (Brazilian and continental), Romanian, Russian, Slovak, Spanish (for Mexico, South America, Spain), Turkish, Ukrainian, and Vietnamese. If you need to translate a text in some of the less frequent languages contact us and we will find, screen a language expert that will translate and deliver your document in the quality and format ready to serve its purpose.

Editing

Part of our Quality process is to proofread and edit all our translations for grammar, formatting, and terminology.
Do you have text in need of a “tune-up”? We also offer editing as a standalone service where we fine-tune the spelling, vocabulary, grammar, and style of your document.

Revisions

Revision is a key step in our Quality process. After editing, the grammar, style and content of the translated document is verified. We then compare the target (newly translated) content with the source (original) content, doing a parallel read to ensure that the message of the source text was conveyed with full accuracy, and faithfully reflects the tone and the intent of the source content. We also provide revision as a standalone service.

Adaptation

Do you have content that needs not only to be translated into a different language, but also to be made suitable for a particular audience? For example, you may have a scientific text that needs to be tailored to a popular audience, or a set of regulations rendered in plain language to be more comprehensible to newcomers to Canada. To ensure a quality end product, Fox Translations assigns translators with experience both in adaptation and in the subject area.

Localization

Do you have content for translation that needs to be further modified to suit a particular cultural or language group? For example, you might want to adapt a French document that was written in Senegal into Canadian French. When we localize a document, we ensure not only that we use the right vocabulary and correct idioms, but also that we fine-tune the details – such as currency and weights and measurements – so that the content rings true for the target audience.

Updates

Do you make changes to documents in one language that must then be made to the same documents in another language? For example, if you make updates to last year’s financial statements in English, our translators can make the corresponding updates to last year’s French version. Whatever language or format your source content uses, we will ensure that the target content accurately reflects even the smallest changes.
