It's a big responsibility to translate industry-specific articles aimed at an expert audience, but that's the job we were given by InterSystems. To localize their content flawlessly, we not only chose native-speaking translators with expertise in the relevant domain but also created a glossary with which to ensure the consistency of terms in different pieces of content. Thus, we laid the foundation for success with additional tasks for InterSystems, including the localization of tags, descriptions, UI elements, news and other content, all of which was important in context. Today, Alconost gives the InterSystems team a helping hand when they need to transcribe and translate voiceovers from videos.

It can be a challenge to localize an app with advanced features such as smart deletion of identical photos, video deletion and identification of similar photos. The context-specific nature of some of these features requires precise translation, and inconsistencies in translations can lead to confusion that will negatively impact the user experience.

We work closely with the client to clarify any context-specific terms and ensure consistency in the translations. Our team uses a glossary and translation memory while working on the Crowdin localization platform to ensure accuracy and consistency across all languages. As new updates are released, we continue to work on the app's localization while providing support to ensure the best possible user experience for worldwide users of Darksy Cleaner.

When tasked with localizing the game "Bunny Boom," a thrilling marble shooter in the style of Zuma, it was occasionally challenging to grasp specific contexts and accurately translate certain phrases. A deep understanding of the source text was essential in order to ensure precise localization that embodied the essence of the Bunny Boom game.

Alconost engaged with the client to request and gather relevant screenshots. Armed with those visual aids, the team of linguists meticulously translated the text into seven languages, ensuring a seamless adaptation that captured the game's nuances. This solution ensured that our localization accurately reflected the game's narrative and maintained a high level of user engagement in the target language.

We conduct localization projects using PEMT, or post-edited machine translation, for the Aviloo company. To obtain a raw machine translation of acceptable quality, we tested six translation engines and had native-speaking translators assess the results. Their evaluations revealed that with some target languages, some engines could outperform the rest. So, for each language pair we selected the engine with the best performance and most complete translation.

Native-speaking translators then polished the machine translations, ensuring readability and freedom from

Review Summary

If you need to translate quickly and efficiently a small number of words or large volumes of text, then this is probably the best solution. Besides, everyone knows about them. Excellent support in your native language excellent prices. You can translate even one word for a couple of cents, which will not take more than a couple of hours. This is what I need.

Translation Services

Describe your project in brief

Preparing translations for marketing materials such as videos, screenshots and banners into over 30 languages. Including rather rare languages such as Tajik, Uzbek, Filipino, etc. It is also worth considering that my tasks include translating the minimum amount of words, usually less than 10 words. In many languages, usually more than 15-20 languages. For example, translate 6 words that consist of 4 keys (phrases) into 20 languages. It ends up costing about $2 for EVERYTHING while other services offer $10-25 for only one language translation.

What is it about the company that you appreciate the most?

A fast nitro service in which there is no concept of a minimum amount of text

Prompt and quality support for any questions in your native language

Ease of use. Convenient and intuitive interface that contains great opportunities for customization to suit your needs

What was it about the company that you didn't like which they should do better?

There is no Kyrgyz and Turkmen in the nitro service. And so one of the largest selections of languages on the market

I like the way I can get translations in a variety of languages. Whether it is a short sentence or something longer, I am sure I will get text within 24 hours. But what is more, it comes much faster. This does not create bottlenecks in my workflow.
The support team responds promptly. I had an isssue with which I appoached them in a live chat. It took no more than 1 minute to respond and that issue was fixed.
Overall, I am glad with the service and continue working with them.

We started working with Alconost from January 2022. The communication was good from the start & they really thought along with us. The communication goes really well via a linked slack channel & they are very flexible when it comes to how payment is done, but also which translation tool is used. They support all the 9 languages we need & deliver usually within 2 business days.

Review Summary

I have been working with Alconost since 2015. During this time they translated hundreds of thousands of characters for me and helped launch dozens of projects.
For me, this is not just a cool service, but also great people. During this time, several managers have changed: Stas, Dmitry, Nadezhda, Yana, Evgenia ... Only the quality manager Vladimir and the soulful attitude towards me remained unchanged.
Each of them did a little more than he was obliged to do: laughed at my jokes, helped to compose texts, filed appeals to the arbitration system, sent me photos of their pets, congratulated me on the holidays... And of course... Solved any problems with the translation of my texts into dozens of languages. RTL? Hieroglyphs? Rare file format? No comments? No difference. The text will be translated with high quality and on time. Do the translators have any questions for me? The manager has already translated them into my language and sent them by mail.
Thank you for being.
I would gladly recommend Alconost to anyone who needs a quality translation. Good luck!
