Translating a language is *not* merely a learned skill or a memorized subject. As the language constantly changes, you must live in it and breathe in it. Get it RIGHT the First time Around! Touch base with your Tagalog/Filipino-speaking Audience or Market.


Tired of seeing "loan words" in your Tagalog/Filipino translations? Do not sacrifice the subtle cultural and social contexts that only Philippine-based translators can provide...your target audience and readers are your Ultimate Proofreaders; they can tell the BIG difference!
