Draft Translation

Overtaal is able to produce draft-quality translations with greatly reduced turnaround times. Each document is translated by a certified linguist, but is not subject to the proofreading or in-house quality management stages of our standard process.

Draft translation means that the entire source text is produced in the target language text on a shorter time scale than in Overtaal's full three-step process. The resulting text is appropriate for internal documents and when reviewing a high volume of material in a short period of time, but is not ideal for external distribution. In cases of particularly short deadlines for large volumes of work, we may opt to use several translators working in parallel on different parts of one document – always after consulting with you, of course.

Your Overtaal contact person can advise on situations when draft translation, or maybe even mach​ine translation, best suits your needs.
