Professional practices Rafal Piasta with PCS Progres Miroslaw Chojnacki endorses's Professional Guidelines.

If you need professional translations into or from Polish or even other languages, you are at a right site; I am a person who you are looking for.

My name is Rafal Piasta and I have been providing professional translation services in Poland and worldwide since 2000; first as PCS, then PROFIT-GROUP and PCS Progres.

The majority of my customers are reputable translation agencies acting worldwide but mainly in the EU, UK and US. They have been purchasing mainly the Polish language from me because it is my mother tongue. As far as I know, they often choose my service because of a high level of quality, trust to my experience and good effective communication.

I have been acting personally or in collaboration with my sub-contractors, with whom I have or ensure agreements. As a vendor and manager, I have been acting as a direct or indirect performer for all translation or localization related processes and I am fully responsible for all the project related matters, such as: ensuring necessary communication, an order review and the order confirmation, approvals, supervision, quality, financial matters and necessary support. Thanks to that all contractual sides, including customers and also sub-contractors, can feel safe and be satisfied.

Our customers always get exactly what they have been ordered, according to our agreements and to the recognizable standards and internal best practices which help us to provide the top quality services and files.

NOTES - worth knowing:

1. If you represent a translation agency, you can be probably interested only in the Polish language. I can submit a competitive, reasonable offer, helping to solve your problem and win.
2. If you represent other company, not translation agency, I can provide you with any languages. Professional translation or localization services for companies other than translation agencies usually require running more complicated process because a separate verification is needed, which cost is minimum ca. 30-50% of the translation price. It is worth remembering that professional translation makes your company, services and products can be trustable, so more desirable.
