What is Community Checking?

Community Checking is a vital step in translation. It involves a second translator reviewing the content to ensure accuracy, clarity, and cultural appropriateness. This is crucial for any project intended for a specific community.

It helps prevent mistakes and ensures that the content is respectful and relatable to that community. In short, it’s a quality control step to make sure the translation is accurate and culturally sensitive.

Community Checking for Accurate Translations

We are an Australian translation service specialising in high-quality and culturally appropriate translations. We emphasise community checking, involving the target audience to ensure linguistic and cultural accuracy. We excel in delivering respectful and well-presented translations, especially for sensitive subjects like mental and sexual health.

We are experienced in addressing cultural complexities, ensuring that topics like abortion and contraception are translated appropriately through community validation. Our commitment is to provide accurate and culturally sensitive translations for clients in Australia.

How We Work with Community Checkers

Our service involves community checks, collaborating with diverse groups such as recent migrants, seniors, youth, individuals with disabilities, mental health or suicide experience, LGBTQIA+ members, women’s health advocates, Indigenous health advocates, and community outreach professionals. We specialise in bridging language and cultural gaps for accurate translations that resonate with specific communities.

Our expertise lies in facilitating communication through translated documents and questionnaires, considering cultural nuances. Our close relationship with community representatives provides unique insights, enabling us to deliver translations aligned with their values to help clients achieve their goals.
