Patent translations:

Norak is proud of our recent landmark achievement in passing the 500,000th high-quality patent and legal document translation.



No matter how straightforward a translation project might seem, a professional approach must be established even before documents have been received. To bridge understandings between two languages, whilst staying true to the overall message needs specific skill sets that must be matched to the overall parameters and project needs.



Localisation means adapting a document, Packaging, software or website to suit a specific culture, market or regional language. In this case, translation is just one of the many aspects of the localisation process.


The term transcreation, is a relatively new concept that fuses translation and creation. It is commonly used by advertising and marketing professionals, and refers to the process of adapting a message to another language while conserving aspects such as purpose, style and emotions. The activities of transcreation and translation are related, but they are not identical activities.



There are different types of interpreting, and each situation requires a different approach. Norak advises clients to help them choose the most suitable interpreter to suit the projects unique requirements. We deliver: Simultaneous Interpretation, Consecutive Interpretation, Liaison (or link) interpreting, Whispering interpretation (or Chuchotage) and Sworn Interpreting.
