Our People

In order to guarantee fast translations, we work with translators all over the world. Our intention has always been to have translators on hand around the clock to handle incoming assignments without delay - we are a 24/7 service.

Most of our translators not only have multiple language skills, they also have degrees in other fields which is essential when translating legal, medical, technical or even marketing texts, for example.

A good translation is not a literal word-for-word translation; it is a completely new text which captures the exact same meaning as the source text, but where the forms of expression specific to the target language have been taken into account.
For this specific reason, our translators only translate into their own mother tongue. This is why machine translations still fail to provide an accurate translation and perhaps never will.

Below you find a few examples of the qualifications of some of our over 1,800 translators who we are proud to present (these people are not exceptional, they are just a few examples of the exceptional people we have working with us):
