They offer translation, proofreading, subtitling and editing of both dissertations and theses', using only the most highly experienced, qualified and competent language practitioners. 

"As a registered corporate member of the South African Translators' Institute (SATI), we make use of qualified, experienced language practitioners who are sticklers about meeting deadlines and delivering good-quality work," says Karien (one of CTrans' managers). They can translate and edit any text be it books, journals and pamphlets. 

A document sent tot hem for translation will be charged according to how well it is written, the length, and how soon it should be sent back. "There are processes we follow to get the documents ready, for translation, they go through translators, and then through to quality controllers to check for quality in case there are mistakes," explains Karien.
