Gengo Quality Policy

Gengo is designed for dynamic, everyday content, whether for personal or business use.

Translation quality is influenced by many factors. The best translations are achieved when translators work with clear instructions and easily understandable text. Context is also crucial, especially for shorter texts, such as tweets, app strings or website localization.

Which quality level should I use?

The difficulty of the content will decide which tier that content is ordered at.
