Recommendations for preparing the text
Pay attention to the following recommendations when you prepare your text for translation. Non-compliance with these rules substantially worsens the quality of translation:
- Avoid misprints and spelling mistakes!
- Mind punctuation marks (periods, commas, exclamation marks)!
- АArticles and other function words are important!
- In French, Spanish, Portuguese and German using diacritics (e.g. é, ò, ü) is obligatory!
- All names, surnames, names of cities and companies and also NOUNS IN GERMAN are written with a capital letter!
- In private letters use simple but complete sentences: Somebody has done something.
- Leet and internet slang (LOL, rofl and so on) are outside our competence.
