What is the difference between Standard and Light Requests?
There are a few differences between Standard and Light requests.
The major difference being that Standard requests are only accessible to highly skilled translators. All Conyac translators have agreed with a Non-Disclosure Agreement, but only translators who have had their ID verified and those who have performed at a high level are allowed to translate Standard requests.
For Light requests, all the translators who have agreed with our Non-Disclosure Agreement are allowed to work on them.
Which one should I choose?
For a tryout request, a short email or music lyrics, a Light request is recommended and if the language is from English to Japanese or vice versa, you will be able to receive some translation results faster than with a Standard one. However, please note that sometimes the quality of the translations might not be at a professional level, as anyone who has registered these languages can handle them.
For business level requests or requests that require knowledge in certain fields such as IT related documents or contracts, a Standard request is recommended. With Standard requests, you can upload files like Word, Excel or PowerPoint.
Moreover, the quality of the translations will be guaranteed as only qualified translators can handle Standard requests.
