We only work with the best translators, and also apply rigorous QA. Our team deals with complex technical, as well as multilingual projects.
We are ISO: 9001 certified. A key aspect of our quality is human authorship. We use translation technology to help with formatting, in addition to layout and consistency. However, our translators do the work, rather than a computer program. They are highly qualified, and also typically have a post graduate qualification in translation. They also have either a first degree in languages, or a technical specialism. All good translators specialise, and work with a few specialist technical areas.
Different types of translation also require different approaches. With a marketing text we need to express the sharpness and flair of the original concept within the target language. However, a legal text for example, is all about extracting the meaning of the original language. Each require different approaches and strategies.
A second linguist independently QA checks our projects for consistency as well as accuracy. We also do terminology checks and checks against previous assignments. Our project managers co-ordinate the work. They are account managers, and also serve you as our main point of contact.
We protect your reputation, we do this by giving a clear brand message in the target language(s).
