Why choose us?
Not all translation companies are the same. NTIS New
Zealand Translation Service aim to offer you a professional high quality
translation at the lowest possible price and in the
shortest possible time. Our aim is your satisfaction
and repeat business. If you are shopping around we
have a list of suggestions for finding the
right translation service.
1. Ensure the company can do what you want.
NZTIS Translation Service can translate over 500 language
combinations. We also have translators specialised in
regional variations of languages. One such example is Brazil for Brazilian
Portuguese and Portugal for European Portuguese.
We have specialists for areas such as technical
translations, patent and legal translations, marketing
translations including foreign language copywriting
and copy editing. We also work with a number of
software packages for translations directly into
Indesign, illustrator, and web applications such as
FrontPage and Dreamweaver.
2. Ensure that the company you choose uses a
translation quality process - and ask for
references/evidence to confirm this.
Mistakes frequently happen - it's human
nature!. Just as in manufacturing or bookkeeping a
process is needed to check and double check the
quality of the work before it is passed out. NTIS New
Zealand Translations follow a translation quality process- see our
page to see what we do. In fact we work to a ISO
9001 style quality process and of course carry
professional translation liability insurance.
3. Ensure the translators are professionals that
translate into their native language.
people can speak more than one language but
translation goes a step further. NTIS New Zealand
translators are the experienced ones - often with
post graduate translation qualifications and years of
experience. We do not use students, beginners or mere
bi-lingual people for our translations. Our
translators are vetted, checked and their work
4. Ensure that the company will use translators that
match your requirements.
NZTIS Translation Services has a large
pool of translators. For say a Spanish legal
translation we will not just select a Spanish
translator but a Spanish translator specialising in
5. Look at the price to quality ratio.
If a company is very cheap ask yourself why. If it is
very expensive bear in mind it probably spends
thousands on advertising, has large inner city offices
and pays non productive executives to hunt for work.
NZTIS Translation Service tries to fit in the middle. We are
cost effective but never at the expense of quality. As
we see it you will probably find translation companies
cheaper than us at the expense of using highly experienced
translators. You will also find translation companies
with much higher prices than us but the same
commitment to quality.
6. If you do require future translations look at
the return customer policy.
NZTIS Translation Services don't offer low prices to
get a new client and then charge high prices to satisfied
return customers knowing they will probably stay with
us. We offer consistently realistic prices and even
offer discounts for our return customers. If you use
one company on a regular basis make them work for your

satisfied customers. For larger quotes we are happy to

references. If you have large volume requirements you
should seek out references first. We are happy to
