Why Are We A Better Translation Company?

Better Quality Translation
A key to our quality is our process. Firstly, we only use the best translators. We then apply rigorous QA. Our systems are ISO: 9001 2015 certified. We also use continuous improvement to evaluate and improve our delivery. Crucially, we get to know your business. What makes you unique and different. And vitally, we are also there if something goes wrong.
Human Authorship
You should run a mile if your translation company uses machine translation. Why? Language is complex. A machine can’t match a human author for style and tone. Machine translation is always stodgy, as well as unnatural. It also can’t choose contextually correct words or phrases. Machines can help with format and text layout. We also use them for glossaries and translation memory. But crucially, the process starts and finishes with human translation. The person, or people, are always in charge.
Independent Quality Assessments
We independently check our translations. This includes both terminology and formatting checks, as well as comparing with previous assignments. Consistency is also really important. This is especially the case with retail translation services. You really don’t want three products next to each other on the shelf, all with slightly different renderings of the same sentence.
