Common questions


What services does NearU Translations offer?

We offer translation, revision, transcription and subtitling services:

  • Translation
  • Text translation:

    It covers the most diverse types of documents: translation of websites in Word/Excel, contracts, presentations, catalogues, manuals, commercial proposals, magazines, brochures, letters, emails, etc.

    Translation of Websites and Web Pages:

    It corresponds to the translation of websites and web pages carried out directly in the code (HTML, Php, Json files, etc.). In this way, the client only needs to upload the files to the server, without the need to search for the corresponding segments and change them one by one, which saves work time and avoids many insertion errors. Furthermore, it allows us to verify a possible incompatibility between the maximum number of characters allowed by the website design for each sentence and the corresponding translations. Once these problems are identified, our translators immediately adjust the translation and proofreading

    We classified it as another type of translation service because it requires a different, more rigorous process that requires more dedication.

    Content localization is another differential of this type of service; we adapt the translation to the culture of the country for which it is intended.

    Audiovisual Translation:

    It covers the translation of the most diverse types of audio and video: institutional videos, presentations, interviews, etc.

  • Revision
  • We review any type of document, be it a thesis, scientific publication, research article, competition, etc. Your text will undergo a grammatical, linguistic and terminological review of the highest quality and will be ready for publication.

    Review types:


    Refere-se à correção de qualquer texto original ou de uma tradução na qual o cliente não requer sua comparação com o texto do idioma de origem.

    Translated Text Review:

    It corresponds to the revision of the final translated text, making use of the source text for comparison and identification of possible errors in translation, style, meaning, etc.

  • Audio and Video Transcription
  • The transcription service corresponds to the conversion of audiovisual content into text, used for many purposes such as, for example, being used for a later translation, adaptation or also being used in judgments and arbitration, plenums and commissions, etc.

    Our transcriptions are performed by native transcribers with extensive experience in transcription.

    The client can choose between 2 types of transcription, natural and literal, and can also request the option of recording the time of each speech (subtitles).

    Natural transcription:

    It is the most common transcription, simple and adapted for reading. This type of transcription provides a clearer and more natural text, since non-relevant information is not transcribed, such as interjections, interruptions, disconnected and/or repeated sentences, as well as errors and speech defects.

    Literal transcript:

    Everything heard from the audio is transcribed (unfinished, repeated words, mistakes, sounds, etc.).

  • Subtitling
  • The subtitling service corresponds to the insertion of the video in text form, usually at the bottom of the screen, synchronized with the dialogues or narration of the audiovisual content (film, program, interview, etc. .) in its original version. The subtitles can be in the same language as the original audio (transcribed content) or in another language (transcribed and later translated content).

Notes about our services:
