FAQ

 

Why do you only translate from French into English?

As a native speaker of English I only translate into my mother tongue in order to provide translations of consistently high quality.


What’s the difference between an interpreter and a translator?

Translators translate the written word, interpreters interpret the spoken word.


What’s the difference between “source language” and “target language” ?

The source language is what a translator translates from, and the target language is what they translate into. So Smart Translate’s source language is French and target language is English.


What is a computer-aided translation (CAT) tool?

CAT tools are computer software designed to support and facilitate the translation process.  They help improve efficiency and accuracy. Smart Translate uses the Wordfast CAT tool.
