With AJE’s scientific translation service, you can save time and money by writing your paper in your native language and letting our team of professional scientific and technical translators transform your manuscript into publication-quality English. Our translators are active members of the academic community, have extensive experience with the research and writing conventions of their fields in both languages, and are published authors.
AJE currently provides translation for the following languages:
We match your paper with translators who are experts in your field of study and will accurately translate field-specific terms. When your paper is returned to you, it will be indistinguishable from papers written by native English speakers. Our translation service is geared toward preparing a publication-quality manuscript. Therefore, please submit your manuscript to us in its final form.
Our translation service also includes editing after the paper has been translated. Therefore, all papers that we translate receive an AJE editing certificate. You can submit the certificate to your target journal along with your final draft to prove that your manuscript has been edited by professional English language editors. Completing this crucial step brings you one step closer to publication.
Every paper submitted for our Translation service is eligible to receive the AJE Editing Certificate, and we guarantee that if you are not satisfied with your manuscript, or if the journal says that the English needs improvement, we will re-edit it for free, no questions asked, until your manuscript is published. Our re-edit service also includes the translation of up to 1500 new words in the source language.
Our Translation service includes translation of your paper by an expert in your area of study, review by a bilingual Academic Translation Advisor, and editing by a subject-matter expert English editor. This service is geared toward preparing a publication-quality manuscript. Therefore, we ask that you please submit your manuscript to us in its final form.
Translation with Formatting
Translation with Formatting includes all the features of Standard Translation plus Complete Manuscript Formatting. After your translation and editing are complete, our formatting experts will modify your page layout, text formatting, headings, title page, image placement, and citations/references such that they agree with the guidelines of your target journal. We also check to ensure that your references are accurate and that your title, running head, abstract, main text, and figure legends comply with the journal’s word count restrictions. Note that if you have not yet selected a target journal, we will not adjust your references or manuscript layout along with our initial translation. However, you can contact us any time with your journal selection, and we will format your manuscript at that time.
Complete Manuscript Formatting includes the following:
Unlike traditional translation companies, we use translators who are working researchers in your area of study. This ensures that they know the jargon of your field in both English and your native language, guaranteeing the most accurate translation possible. AJE also includes a quality review for every translation by one of our experienced academic translation advisors. We feel this additional step is critical to providing the most accurate translation of your important research. Finally, our translation service includes English-language editing by native speakers in your field, so your final paper will be completely polished and ready for publication.
Standard Translation includes only translation and editing. If you would like Complete Manuscript Formatting as well, please purchase Translation plus Formatting.
Our translation service does not alter the content or organization of your manuscript. Instead, we faithfully translate the text provided. To ensure that you receive the best possible translation, please send us the final version of your manuscript.
Depending on the availability of qualified translators, we can sometimes accommodate requests for translation for languages other than the ones listed on our site. Please contact us for special translation requests.
Publication is a subjective process, so we are not able to guarantee that you will be published after you use our services. We do guarantee that we will re-edit your paper for free if it is rejected by a journal for reasons of English language alone.
AJE will provide a certificate confirming that your paper was edited by a native English speaker at AJE and, assuming all of the changes we proposed are incorporated into the manuscript, is ready for journal submission. It will allow journal editors to feel confident that the English language in your paper has been reviewed and verified. This certificate is limited to documents that are deemed the highest quality AJE submissions (documents that require only one round of language editing from AJE before they are publication ready). Not every paper will earn a certificate, but every paper will have the opportunity. Visit our Certificate Program page to learn more.
