Expert Translators for Your Book, Novel or Magazine Translation
HI-COM’s experienced team of project managers will select the perfect resource to work on your literary content. What’s more, unlike other agencies, and where possible, we will make every effort to put you in direct (or even face-to-face) contact with the translator, to ensure every aspect of your work is discussed and covered in detail. We can also send out samples of the work to native readers to ensure the work is understood and interpreted the way it was intended.
Plus, before we join you on your literary journey, you may send us a small extract and we will then propose a number of sample translations in various styles written by different resources, so you can select the one that best matches the original work.
