Our core values

Consistency

We ensure that our linguists apply the terminology consistently throughout all of the files

Our clients may not always agree on the vocabulary we choose, but we ensure that our linguists apply the terminology consistently throughout all of the files. Thus, fixing preferential issues is as easy as a simple find and replace.

Quality Contributors

Quality Contributors: Expert Team Ensuring High Standards in Every Project

We interview each and every one of our contractors to verify their experience and technological capabilities. Then, we administer a paid test. We maintain good relationships with trusted linguists and remove problematic contributors from our pool.​

Custom Resources

Custom Linguistic Resources: Tailored Language Solutions for Precise Communication

We design project-specific glossaries and QA checks, which we send to our linguists and then use ourselves. All the materials we create (except the proprietary QA checks) become the property of our clients, including translation memories and glossaries.

Transparency

Transparency: Clear and Open Communication for Trustworthy Services

Our pricing is transparent. We provide the identities of our collaborators and give our clients the option of removing them from the account. Robert is always on hand to take responsibility and solve any problems or dissatisfaction.
