Crowdin cooperates with several professional translation agencies. All the translators are certified linguists and native speakers, who are tutored to work in Crowdin.
Some of them, like Gengo and Translated, are integrated with Crowdin via API, so the process of ordering the translations becomes fully automated. When you choose to buy the translations from them, Crowdin forwards your untranslated data directly to the agency and after the translation is completed, it is uploaded back to the project. In the end, the only thing that you should do is to download the completed translations from the project.
By choosing any other vendor from the list, you contact a real person, who is assigned to a project as a project manager. They handle the process for you: involve the translators, maintain the quality, monitor the progress, and meet the deadlines.
Professional translation is a paid service, where the approximate cost for your project is calculated or negotiated in the process of purchasing.
