These days, the lingua franca of science, technology, social sciences, and many other fields is English. Many journal publishers won't allow a paper to make it to the peer review stage if it isn't written in intelligible English. To get your paper accepted for publication by top academic journals, it's critical for it to read as if it had been originally written in fluent, cohesive English.
Translating an academic paper from Portuguese into English is about more than just having good grammar and correct spelling – it's about using the appropriate terminology for your field and ensuring that it makes sense on a sentence-by-sentence, paragraph-by-paragraph level, so that reviewers, publishers and readers alike can focus on your ideas.
That's why TranslationPal uses highly qualified translators, all of whom are native English speakers with years of experience in translation. Once our translators have done their work, your paper is then proofread by one of our highly skilled proofreaders. Their detail-oriented eyes will ensure that the English translation is publication-ready. Our academic translation services offer a lot for a reasonable price:
