Qualitative Translation Services in Cape Town

Cape Town is the legislative capital of South Africa, located in the south-west of the country, near the Cape of Good Hope. It’s often called one of the most beautiful cities in the world and it’s the most visited city of South Africa.

Table Mountain with the height of 1087 meters is a symbol of Cape Town. Over the years, its inimitable silhouette has met seafarers from distant countries, seeking to replenish water and food supplies in the long-awaited bay of Cape Town. The botanical gardens of Kirstenbosch, founded in 1902 on the eastern slope of Table Mountain, are recognized as one of the seven best and most famous botanical gardens in the world.

The Castle of Good Hope is the oldest building in South Africa. Construction was completed in 1679, and became the base of the Dutch East India Company (on the trade route to India), as well as the defensive fort for settlers. In 1936 the fort was proclaimed a museum and is still the regional center of the South African military forces in the Western Cape.

The Cape Town industry is also developing at full speed, experiencing times of economic recovery.

Traditionally, the diamond industry plays an important role in the economy of the Republic of South Africa: diamond processing is one of the main industries in Cape Town. Special hopes are recently placed in the thriving energy sector: on the coast, deposits of natural gas and oil were discovered, which wasn’t neglected by foreign investors.

Translation services

The most developed industries in Cape Town, where translation services from English to Russian may be required, are:

• one of the main economic and transport centers of South Africa (bank documentation and nonbank documentation, Custom Cargo Declarations, waybills, packing lists);
• petroleum refining (translation of instructions and manuals for operation of geological and reconnaissance and oil refining equipment);
• chemical (translation of patents, background documents of product safety, toxicology reports, exception reports and related documentation, which determines the chemical composition and characteristics of substances);
• textile (translation of products, printed materials, which conducive to advancement of products and equipment);
• diamond processing (translations of any kind of technical operating instructions and documents for processing equipment);
• banking and insurance operations (bank documentation relating to stock exchange, investments, securities, insurance policies, certificates, programs, rules and contracts);
• tourism (translation of web-sites, menu, brochures).

If we don’t take into account students of linguistic faculties and colleges, the need for the language arises most often as planned — a trip to Russia or cooperation with Russian colleagues that often happens in Cape Town, which is the capital. There is should be time to prepare and learn the language, even at the level sufficient for communication. Of course, it will be most convenient to use Russian lessons on Skype, which in our time are simple enough to organize.

RTS was helpful when I almost lost a hope to get a visa. Simultaneously, the price-list is enough democratic one!
