Development cooperation & social services
NGOs and state-run or church-based development agencies inevitably engage with many international bodies, so they need translations on a regular basis – in many cases in non-European languages as well. Development agencies work in a wide variety of fields and consequently produce all sorts of different documents: strategy papers and conceptual frameworks, applications for project funding, monitoring and evaluation reports or guidelines for employees working abroad.
The variety of subject areas and the political relevance of many documents mean that translators need broad general knowledge and a keen appreciation of the sensitive political nature of many issues and how they can be most accurately conveyed. InTra's translators have the political insight and linguistic competence to ensure that government and non-government organizations work successfully together.
