Our Services

Accuracy offers the full breadth of linguistic services, including translation, interpretation, legal editorial, copyright and legal English instruction.

Data transmission through secure channels and trusted workforce located worldwide provide constant availability and solutions to time and jurisdictional concerns. Accuracy always has a team of specialist linguists                available to process your order.



The quality of a translation is more than simple correspondence between the source and target language. It is inherently bound to the action you wish to compel, be this e.g. the cessation of action, acceptance of figures and terms, or the engagement of your services.

Accuracy works with native speaking lawyer-linguists, financial service experts and qualified technical experts who work to improve the quality of the target document by knowing its scope of application and purpose.

Accuracy provides certified translations that comply with the strict criteria of local, national and international tribunals and commercial registries with respect to quality and admissibility.

Our translations convey intended meaning accurately and provide advice on modifications to solve linguistic concerns that are inherent to translation and crucial to the success of the document. As necessary, we provide concise commentary to assist you in reviewing and processing our work efficiently. Our aim is to craft documents that compel your intended result.


The support of a multilingual simultaneous or consecutive interpreter can be invaluable to maximizing negotiations, meetings or court hearings, where English speakers must understand the nuance of the German spoken word. Only then can one properly work with counsel and best contribute their expertise to a hearing or negotiation.

Richard Clabaugh has extensive experience in both simultaneous and consecutive interpretation German <> English in tribunal, negotiation and informal meeting settings. He and the qualified interpreters with whom he works interpret content accurately and comprehensibly and elucidate technical and idiomatic terms with contextual and cultural information to help you understand the speaker`s full intent.

Why does Accuracy charge on a per keystroke basis?

Transparency. An estimate based on a per-keystroke rate provides the most reliable indication of what a translation will ultimately cost, as it is the most precise upfront indication of the work necessary to translate a document.

The length of words specific to fields varies greatly between languages. Accuracy has conducted field specific research (law and finance) to allow us to accurately predict the amount of keystrokes in a target file by accounting for differences between word length in the source and target languages. This allows me to provide precise, comprehensible and transparent estimates and invoices.

Accuracy invoices for the amount of keystrokes in the source or final file, whichever is longer. Insofar as legal-linguistic commentary is necessary, I invoice an additional per hour fee. Please contact me for more details.

Why does Accuracy allow only one linguist to translate a document?

Quality. Usage and diction invariably differ between translators. This can expend undue time and resources to align multiple contributions with Accuracy`s quality standards.

A flowing translation – aligned with associated documents – ultimately saves time and increases comprehension and impact. Unless project urgency and size requires, I guarantee that one qualified linguist will translate your material before it is edited in accordance with our internal protocols.
