Dedicated Account Manager

You will also receive support from a dedicated Account Manager, who will respond to any queries you may have and ensure all communication is passed to the translators. Your Account Manager will also discuss your feedback on the translations and the service received to ensure you are totally satisfied with your translations. As language graduates, they all have passion for their chosen career and speak eight European languages to native standard within the team.

Data security and confidentiality

We make sure your content is shared with the essential parties and no one else, with agreed security measures in place such as the storage and transfer of your files on our secure server and making sure all parties have signed NDAs.   

Terminology Management and Translation Memory

We use sophisticated translation technology which records your preferred terminology and any translations that have been completed previously. This allows our linguists to consistently and accurately translate your content and meet your project requirements effortlessly. It also allows us to pass on cost savings to you by providing reduced rates for repeated content across your documentation. Online systems are also available, which allow multiple translators to access the same reference material, as well as enabling reviewers to access and edit the content in line with their preferences.
