We are very “high” on this company for good reasons. It is sticking to the commitment to human translation services, which can be more expensive; its prices remain well within average for the industry; customers are happy with the quality of products they receive, and professionalism is a high priority. Overall, our rating of The Word Point is “superior.”

Due to a  combination of factors, we strongly recommend that customers avoid this website at all costs. They appear at best to be a poorly run translation service. At worst, they are a scam operation that has been set up to dupe both customers and translators. Whatever the case may be, the documents we received were poorly translated and not viable in any way. Fortunately, there are good translation services out there. We encourage you to read our other reviews to learn more.

3. Transperfect.com

Regretfully, we must strongly suggest that consumers not use Transperfect Translations. The quality of work and customer service is exceedingly poor. Because other reviews and consumer complaints largely match our negative experience, we feel safe in stating that this does not appear to be an isolated case. We also do not believe that this large number of unhappy customers and employees is due to grudge holding.

We encourage everyone to continue reading our reviews. We are confident that there is at least one translation site profiled here that is a perfect for anyone’s unique needs.

We are sad to say that we must advise everyone to find another translation website. There are too many quality issues here, and the prices are not budget friendly. Fortunately, we are able to offer reviews on other, better quality translation services.

5. Onehourtranslation.com

After taking the entirety of our experiences with this service, and considering our discoveries regarding others’ experiences with the company, we must conclude that this is not a service we can recommend. There are two many issues with quality, delivery of services, and pricing. If you are in need of translation services, please consider another company. We believe stating otherwise would be a disservice to our audience.

6. Languageline.com

While there are others who have had positive experiences with this company, our experience was bad enough that we cannot recommend using this service. If you are in need of translation, interpretation, localization, language based e-learning services, etc. don’t fret. There are excellent services out there. Please refer to our other reviews. We are certain you will find a trustworthy, translation service to meet your personal or business needs.

7. Strakertranslations.com

We must recommend that anyone considering using this company for translation services avoid placing an order. The company simply does not provide the type of quality that justifies the prices that they charge. Our order was badly handled. That in combination with the inflated prices, mediocre reviews, and failure to provide upfront pricing have led us to this conclusion. Anyone in need of translation services is invited to check out our other reviews. We are certain they will find a good match.

8. Translated.net

In total, our review of Translated.net is mixed. When even a simple translation such as our letter contains errors, we can provide an overall rating of “Fair” or “Mediocre.”

9. Daytranslations.com

There are certainly some positive things to say about Day Translations. The site itself is well-appointed and easy to navigate. The array of services is certainly comprehensive, and the company does have credibility through a physical corporate address, phone number and live chat feature.

What concerns us are the following: - cost is quite high; - quality is not consistent – it seems to be dependent on the freelancer who is assigned. The company should review translations to make sure that quality is not compromised; - we are unable to access the samples. Overall, we would give a rating of “Fair-to-Good,” again dependent upon the assigned freelancer.
10. Rushtranslate.com

Unfortunately, we did not found any user reviews on Rushtranslate on the web. That may mean that the domain is not popular enough or well-promoted yet, but it may be still safe and promising.

Finding Top Translation Services

Translation services have found their online presence. In fact, they are exploding. And as the global reach of virtually every industry increases, the need for translation services does too. From corporate expansion, to e-commerce, to publishing, to shared research, every niche now needs expert-level services.

Traditionally, organizations in need of translation have made use of local services, either in their native locales or in the target locations. This can be less than ideal, however, as individual translators can be unreliable and/or unqualified. And often, multiple individuals will have to be located, if translations are needed in multiple languages.

Online translation services have been developed to fill the needs of organizations - to have reliable, high quality, and “single stop” places for all translation needs. The concept is great, and certainly there are some star players in the industry. Like everywhere else, however, there are also some “duds” and some scams with low quality results.

Why We are Here

We want consumers to have the information they need to choose one that is reputable, professional, that delivers high quality, and that will meet their individual needs. Here you will find objective reviews of companies, based on our own investigation and assessment, as well as genuine customer comments and feedback. This information should help you make smart decisions.

Avoiding the Duds

If you are thinking about selecting a random service, you need to know the factors that will demonstrate that you have found a good one. Here are some things to look for:

  1. A Low-Quality Website: Any translation service that is worthwhile will have taken the time to invest in a website that looks good, that has high-quality writing, and that has easy-to-navigate features. Walk away from any website that doesn’t look professionally done.
  2. Bad Grammar/Composition: Many services have a global reach, and their own sites are translated in multiple languages. If you pull up the site in your language and there are grammar and word usage mistakes, what kind of products are you going to get? The answer is obvious.
  3. Generic Testimonials/Feedback: Unprofessional websites write their own customer testimonials. They are often not genuine. Do not go by the feedback you read on-site. Check out comments and feedback on the web.
  4. Pricing That Is Outside Normal Boundaries: This goes both ways. Some companies will over-price their services just to make you think they are somehow better than the rest; others will price really low to get our business. You need to get pricing from several sites to determine what the normal cost is and select a company within that price range.
  5. Poor or No Reviews: If you cannot find any reviews of the particular translation service, why? Or, if the only reviews you find are neutral or poor, then the company is risky at best. Look elsewhere.

It’s Hard Work

Finding the best translation website is hard work, if you do it on your own.

Think about how you buy a car, a major appliance, or select a hotel for a vacation. You do some initial research, but, in the end, you check out what others have said – on social media, of course, but certainly you check out consumer review sites to get some factual information and to learn what other customers who have purchased the product or service have to say. These purchases are important. So, how important is finding the best translation site for your organizational needs? We believe it is of critical importance, and that is why we are here.

You do not have to do the hard work. We have done it all for you. PickWriters.com is the single place you can come to find honest information. We do not have any “skin in this game;” we are focused on factual information and the experiences of customers.


Here is How We Prepare Reviews

We have developed very specific criteria that we believe constitute professional, reputable practice and high quality of both products and services. We have evaluated every translation service against these criteria, so that we can present an objective and factual review. We have evaluated the company policies and practices; we have listened to customers; and we have ourselves placed an order for translation, in order to evaluate quality and service.

Every website we review is ultimately scored with a star rating; along with that rating, there is a full written review that underpins that rating, providing all of the detail you will want to have to make a wise decision for yourself and/or your organization.

We will continue to add reviews regularly. And you may certainly contact us and request a review of a specific translation service you might be considering, We are here to serve consumers.
