What You Need to Know About Us
Our translation firm was incepted in 2004 in Kuala Lumpur. The name VEQTA comes from the word ‘VECTOR’ which is a term used for categorizing images in Desktop Publishing; for example, Adobe Illustrator and InDesign files. Some of our very first assignments involved Desktop Publishing in Malay and other Asian translation for billboards in the Asia-Pacific Region which required this scalable format.
Year 2010 Milestone: 200 Translators!
By end of 2010 we have employed 40 Malay translators specialized in the field of marketing, finance, legal and engineering topics. Additionally, we had secured 200-full/part time translators working with us in 10 different Asian languages supporting hundreds of client’s translation, localization projects in Malaysia and Singapore.

How it Works
Once we received the final files we can provide the formal quotation. You may take as long as you need to review and consider the quotation.
Once the quote is approved the translators are off to the races and the translation phase starts with the agreed deliverables.
The translation phase involves our process of Translation, followed by Editing and Proofreading. Read more here.
The delivery is made as softcopies via email or a transfer downloadable link. Hardcopy print outs via the post is not possible.
We remain available to address any additional requirements or feedback. This commitment is independent of the agreed invoice processing terms.
The best way is to email us the available source so the wordcount can be assessed. If the source is not available you may send a sample or let us know an estimated wordcount and we can give you an estimated price.
The firm quotation is based on the final version of the source file. Large files (over 10 MB) can be sent via a site like wetransfer.com or drop box. If we receive a PDF (or image format) we need to know if the original editable source that the PDF was created in will be sent to us prior to handoff. E.g. InDesign, Doc or PowerPoint. This information will enable us to provide you with an accurate quotation faster.
The translation price is based on number of words or characters in the source. Each language pair has it’s own rate per source word or character. Desktop Publishing work is based on number pages and depends on formatting requirements. Voice-over is based on minutes of the audio or video.
Simply email the source material to us and you will receive a quick reply. You are more than welcome to call us to discuss but the absolute fastest method to obtaining a quotation is to email us the project details and source/sample.
A translator can translate around 2500 to 3500 words per day and an editor can edit around 4000 words per working day. Once we received the source we will provide you with an estimated delivery time.
How long is a piece of string? A page can contain a handful of words, e.g. a PowerPoint presentation. A single page for Terms & Conditions for an insurance company in Calibri font size 5 could fit over 3500 words. The number of man-hours for the work would be different. Therefore quoting by the number of words is more accurate when scoping the project.
The Project Manager & translator/editor. All staff members are under NDA compliance and we can sign an NDA with your company prior to receiving any source material for quotation. We can comply with individual’s companies’ data protection policies as required.
Payment is payable via bank transfer or credit card payment. Payment terms depends on the scope of the project and your company, contact us for details.
We recommend that you wait to give us a go-ahead with the translation until the source files are final. If you know the source sent to us is not the latest version, but you would like to save time by making a start on it, we strongly recommend discussing the anticipated source change with us first. Oftentimes it ends up being faster to wait until the original source has been finalized before sending it to us. For quotation purposes, sending a draft version is a good way to receive an estimate while the file is being finalized on your side.
We adhere to localization best practices and utilize so called CAT Tools and Translation Memories. We have processes for comparing source differences and depending on the nature of the change we will isolate the new words and charge for the new words only if feasible. If there is an overall update with source structure change and edits and deletions we may revert to an hourly charge.
