Tailored Translation and Editing

for Publishers and Businesses

At Wordsmiths, we understand that a successful business requires special care and attention. As a result, we have a dedicated department to deal with our business clients. We have also devised tailored services and prices available only to businesses.

We primarily serve publishing houses, research centers, and educational institutes, but are open to all businesses.

We don’t just provide a regular translation service; we provide a comprehensive, publication-ready, ‘door-to-door’ service. All you’ll need is typesetting and your document will be ready for print.

Translation

We provide expert academic translations by hand-picked translators who possess mastery over both source and target languages.

Most translations fall short when the translator may be proficient in the source language but is not native in the target language. As a result, the final product leaves something to be desired.

That is why all our translators are also qualified editors; the finished product thus resembles a native text as opposed to a translated piece.

The document is then independently proofread by the editing department and signed off by our Director, Dr Salah Sharief.

Proofreading & Editing

Wordsmiths was founded in 2015 as a proofreading and editing company.

Our roots stem from an academic background, editing PhD theses and research articles. We have since expanded into the publishing market and now primarily edit books.

All our editors are bilingual, native in both English and Arabic. As a result, we are industry experts in correcting transliteration including diacritical marks (e.g. duha to ḍuḥā).

We maintain a rigorous system whereby all edited documents are passed onto a second editor to proofread in a 2-step process.

Testimonial

“As the Chair of the COST Action Rural NEET Youth Network, I have had the pleasure to work with Wordsmiths proofreading services. The company has provided our Action proofreading services for different types of scientific outputs such as reports and peer-reviewed scientific articles published in high-ranked journals.

I really appreciated their timely, detailed, and very professional feedback. I also highlight their personal attention to each customer in order to solve any problems or to find the best solutions to deal with tight deadlines. For all of this, I would definitely recommend Wordsmiths services to my peers.”

“Wordsmiths has a wealth of copy writing and editing experience across a range of subjects and industries. They have an excellent eye for detail and are able to translate a mountain of words into a great piece of creative/functional/informative copy writing – whatever the subject.

In the past I have given them work that has got me accepted for scholarships, communicated timely PR releases during a national crisis as well as the usual email newsletter production. Thumbs up from me!”

Mahboob Hussain

“Wordsmiths are a pleasure to deal with. Dr Sharief is very diligent in catering to all of our needs, which makes the process very smooth. It is especially helpful that they take care of both the translation and editing so we just receive a ready document and don’t have to worry about contacting multiple people.”

Mohammed Hijab

“Wordsmiths are a quality outfit who communicate clearly and go the extra mile. Reliable, professional and resourceful.”

“Islam21c have used Wordsmiths for two years for all of our proofreading and we are happy with the service. We have strict thresholds for quality and readability, and often require timely proofreading, so we have historically employed in-house proofreaders. However, after our last proofreader left we explored Wordsmiths and have been pleasantly surprised with the results. They have managed to become integrated into our workflow efficiently and continue to provide an effective and professional service māshāAllāh.”

Wordsmiths have always been extremely professional whenever I’ve used their services.
As a first-time author and publisher, I was very new to the book market and the Wordsmiths team were very helpful throughout the process.
They have excellent attention to detail and are very proficient in proofreading and transliteration. I will definitely recommend Wordsmiths to others!

We were delighted by the service Wordsmith provided. Having set them a very challenging time frame to deliver within, they worked efficiently and diligently to meet all deadlines. Overall we had access to three quality translators and editors, and for the most part they were available to communicate almost immediately every day for nearly two months. Everybody at Love’s Pilgrim is indebted to them and we cannot recommend them highly enough.

 

Mudasser Hussain

Love’s Pilgrim

I was really impressed by a few things, especially the ease and simplicity of communication when submitting what I needed to be proofread. I was even more impressed by the timescale of the completion of the work; my book was all done in under 24 hours. Not only was it completed to a very high standard, but extra help and tips were given on where I was going wrong grammatically, so I also learnt a few things from Wordsmiths.

After the original draft was completed, I wanted to add a couple more pages to my book, so I reached out to Wordsmiths again to read over and make the necessary corrections. I wanted to pay for the additional work that I needed to complete, but they insisted on doing it for free.

You really get what you pay for. Well worth the investment if you’re after quality and professionalism all round. In the future, I won’t need to look elsewhere, Wordsmiths is my go-to place and my highest recommendation for others to use.

We used Wordsmiths to proofread a translation of a traditional fiqh text into English. We were extremely pleased with the turnaround time and the level of detail and precision that they provided. We were also very impressed with the level of professionalism and would not hesitate to use their services again in the future.

Wordsmiths provide an invaluable service and are an absolute pleasure to work with. Since the beginning of our partnership, Dr Sharief and the team at Wordsmiths have been very attentive to our specific requirements as an educational institute, going above and beyond the call of duty and delivering outstanding results every time.
