Afghan Translation Association
Afghan Translation Association (ATA) founded in 2008, is one of the most experienced professional entities representing the interests of translation in the country. We offer language translation services for corporate clients and individuals all over the country. All services are performed by a powerful team of experienced and highly skilled translators, interpreters, proof-readers and quality assurance managers with a solid professional background. We aim to provide translations of texts from English to Pashto, Dari, Farsi, Uzbek, Tajik, Kurdish (Sorani, Bahdini, Kurmanji, Fayli, Gorani), Azeri, Turkish, Russian, German, Arabic and Urdu and vice versa. ATA is happy to follow a translation oriented noble objective. The majority of our in-house translators are native speakers, as we believe native speakers of the target language play a critical role in achieving the best possible translations for our clients. After the initial translation, your document will be proofread and assessed for quality by a second translator to ensure we deliver the best possible product. Proofreading is a key tool to use when writing the original text, and an integral part of the translation process to obtain a grammatically sound end-product. Experience, an unmatched attribute in the language services industry! Choosing a company that specializes in your particular languages and document types is paramount to getting the service and high-quality documents you deserve! Language services such as translation/interpretation allow different nations to come together to collaborate and exchange views on different matters to achieve a mutual understanding.

How Much to Pay
Prices do vary a little, but generally they are fairly standard. Remember that you can get a poor quality translation for free, so it would be silly to pay for one! Do not choose a company purely because of the price they offer. It is far better to choose a company because of the quality they provide.
The translators we use have passed our strict standards. We follow a 4-step translation process starting with initial translation, proofreading the translation where a second set of language experts reviews the document for accuracy, consistency and readability, editing where our in-house professionals once again review for layout details and finally the quality control check where our quality assurance department reviews the completed document with a fine-toothed comb before sending it back to the client.
Our Main Services
Our translators are made up of experienced, Afghan culture sensitive and detail-oriented individuals, many of whom have their master’s degrees or are pursuing it. Most of our senior translators have over a ten years of experience.
The website localization services offered by ATA can help you turn your English language site into a Pashto and Dari, German, Arabic and Urdo tool that is clear, concise and on-message in those languages.
Interpreters are your voice! We offer professional interpreting services via Over the Phone Interpretation (OPI) and In-Person Interpretation. If you are looking for a certified legal interpreter, medical interpreter or other business needs, we can help.
We can provide you up to 500 headphone for simultaneous interpretation. We also provide simultaneous interpreters in 150 languages. ... or you have 500 delegates needing 5 different language options.
This is a process of examining a text with the intention of improving the flow and quality of writing/translation.

Proofreading and Typing
