The project involved translating a total of 1.2 million words from English to Arabic, ensuring the translations were culturally appropriate and eloquent. Given the project’s significance, the Ministry selected our elite package, which includes translation, editing, proofreading, and desktop publishing (DTP) for right-to-left (RTL) text formatting. Our team successfully completed the project one month ahead of the deadline, ensuring the highest standards of quality and cultural relevance.

Solution: Close collaboration with cultural experts and regular consultations with the client to align the translations with Saudi cultural norms and sensitivities.

 

Challenge: Managing a large volume of work within a tight deadline.

Solution: Efficient project management, including the division of work into milestones and regular team meetings, allowed us to stay on track and deliver high-quality work ahead of schedule.

The project was completed successfully, one month before the six-month deadline. The Ministry of Culture was highly satisfied with the quality, accuracy, and cultural relevance of the translations. The books were approved for publication, and the Ministry commended our team for their professionalism and dedication.

"I am immensely pleased with Fast Trans's work on our extensive book translation project. Their team demonstrated exceptional professionalism, cultural sensitivity, and dedication throughout the project. The translations were not only accurate and eloquent but also culturally nuanced to suit our audience.
