Welcome to Translation Tune-Ups!

You may have noticed that in translations, words may get a bit wonky at times. All these translations need is a tune-up!

Here at Translation Tune-Ups, you can revise/edit translations if that's your first language. You don't need to be bilingual, just fluent enough in at least one language that you can write well without grammatical/spelling mistakes. Or, you can give us something that needs a little fixing up for our employees to edit!

But wait! Maybe it wasn't a translation - maybe you just need some revisions. Post ‘em here too, and we’ll get them fixed up!

Got it?
So, what are you waiting for?
Check out the Table of Contents to see what to do! Use the order form to order, and the employee form to apply.

  • American-English

How it Works

Still confused?
Here's an example of part of the instructions for a Pick-Up-Sticks game, translated from German:
Nowthe player tries to lift the rods individually with the fingers. without other rods however being allowed to move,When the Mikado hsa been lifted, it may be used for the lifting of further rods.

It is by pressing the finger on the tip of the rod that the latter may be li ted most easily.

Here's how I would fix it:
Now, the current player tries to lift each rod individually. If no other rods are moved when the rod is lifted, then the rod may be used for picking up more rods.

The easiest way to lift a rod is to push the tip of it with your finger from the side.


Our shop can edit your project descriptions, studio descriptions, in-game grammar, comments, forum posts, you name it! Just post the link down below and we'll catch it, fix it up, and boom! Your grammar should be on fleek!

It's not so much a translation shop as it is a fix-your-grammar shop.

I thought of it because I often see Scratchers trying to speak English like “My english language is less than proficient so I apologizes for any mistake.”
