Language to support your success

Welcome to Babbler Fish!

Translation is our passion. Many people consider translating boring and uninteresting occupation. However, they underestimate how exciting work with words can be. The Word is mighty and a well-chosen one can make all the difference – between success and failure. A minor typo can destroy the best of projects. In 1962, a small error in the computer code for the Venus-bound Mariner-1 spacecraft cost NASA $80 million. As a report noted, Mariner-1 was destroyed by the most expensive hyphen in history. We at the Babbler Fish Translation Agency value your achievements, in which no detail is too small. And so we will not let, a small leak sink a great ship.

- Wishing you every success, The Babbler Fish team
Who we are?
Babbler Fish Translations Services is a dynamic team dedicated to exceeding client expectations! We have already proven that, beyond translation, we are first and foremost partners – pursuing the same goals and challenges as our customers. Secure – companies, government agencies and many individuals trust us to fully respect client confidentiality.
What we do?
Babbler Fish Translation Services specialises in three core languages: Azerbaijani, English and Russian, and our translations between these languages ​​are crafted to perfection. This is because every assignment is subject to a stringent quality control process:
  • Translation
  • Semantic verification against the original
  • Stylistic editing
  • Proofreading
  • Layout, ensuring the file is an exact match with the original
How we do this?
Language is a living thing. We can feel it changing. Parts of it become old: they drop off and are forgotten. New pieces bud out, spread into leaves, and become big branches, proliferating – the classicist Gilbert Highet. Besides, the same phrase in a different language can have a completely different meaning. A top quality translation demands much more than transposing individual words. Thus it will be years before a computer captures the finest shades of meaning and refracts them in the light of context, or selects the most appropriate synonym, as an experienced human does.
According to topic, different aspects of the translation process come into play.
When the client’s priority is imaginative or attractive language, we always endeavour to:
  • Convey accurately the meaning of the original text
  • Comply with context
  • Use speech patterns familiar to the target audience (in marketing and advertisement texts)
  • Ensure a smooth translation.
As a result, the final text appears as if created in the target language, not a translation.
When translating technical, legal and financial texts there is greater focus on:
  • Accuracy of translation
  • Applying appropriate specialist terminology (insurance, oil & gas, aviation, finance etc.)
  • Clarity, free of ambiguity
  • Maintaining original lay out (of blue prints, tables, graphs etc)

To determine the cost of translation we consider:
Urgency of order
Terms of payment
Native speaker involvement*
Type of translation**

*Editing by a native speaker ensures full compliance with the norms and standards of the target language, as well as a natural target text.

**Choice of the type of translation depends on the purpose of the original document. If it is intended for a wide audience, we recommend High Quality Translation. If the document is required for personal or internal corporate use, Business Translation will be sufficient.

High Quality Translation
High Quality Translation is suggested for business documentation defining a company’s image in the local market and specialised texts that require accuracy and consistency meeting the accepted norms and standards of the particular area.
High Quality Translation is conducted in three stages which include:

1. translation by professional translator
2. editing by highly qualified professional editor
3. final proofreading and layout.

The professional editor compares the text with the original, checks that it is adequate and that the terminology used is correct and consistent. He corrects stylistic errors and ensures consistency.
The proofreader checks the text for grammar, spelling mistakes and ensures accuracy in numbering, measuring units, abbreviations, tables of contents etc.

Business Translation
Business Translation is appropriate for personal and internal use.
The process of translation is reduced to two stages

1. translation
2. subsequent revision by a proofreader.

This type of translation does not include editorial revision. The translation is checked by a proofreader, who checks the text for punctuation, grammar and spelling errors.

Damn fine cup of coffee…

Best read with a cup of coffee in hand.
It is well known that nothing enriches our mind, soul and … vocabulary like reading. A rich vocabulary features prominently in the portrait of a good translator and is the main weapon in the arsenal of an experienced editor in constant search of compromise between beauty and accuracy.
Translators often joke, Translation is like a woman: if it is faithful, it is not beautiful, if it is beautiful, it is not faithful. So we try to find time for reading and thought in the midst of life’s sprint. Here we share articles written by our translators and editors as well as impressions of books that are ideally suited for reading with a damn fine cup of coffee in hand.
