- Like all living languages, Philippine languages constantly change. Linguists should always be located in the geographical target market--in short, they should live in it, breathe it!
– Educated as a government scholar at the University of the Philippines (Diliman campus) and at the Philippine Science High School, Jake Estrada is earning his Masters of Business Administration from Edinburgh Business School of Scotland, UK through distance learning. "Education is a Continuous Process, Not an End Result." EXPERIENCED
– Touchbase, a network of linguists established in 1997, is now a part of QwertyWorks, a company founded in 2001 by Jake Estrada who has been translating from and into Tagalog/Filipino since 1993.
– Touchbase has a well-trained team of project coordinators who work in 3 shifts to provide you with round-the-clock customer service in all timezones, answering your questions and providing instant support in all stages of your project: from Headsup to Handoff to Handback to Post-delivery DTP Checking and QA query management.
- Touchbase only hires translators who are native mother-tongue speakers and employs them as regular employees rather than as freelancers. Would you trust your texts to mere bilinguals doing translations as a second job, or to by-the-book instructors moonlighting as translators, or to unaccredited "linguists"--only to have them sent later on to Touchbase for editing or rework??
- Touchbase is also the only language provider anywhere to specialize in Philippine languages. We don’t offer non-language services and we also don’t dare translate into languages that we don’t speak everyday.
– Touchbase has its own offices, workstations, and capacity to handle tens of thousands of words per day. We also have millions of bytes of TMs and legacy translations with quality that is very much sought after. Large projects are handled by our in-house, full-time (not freelance) linguists with years of experience translating content for clients like Google, Microsoft and Nokia.
- A member of the American Translators Association (ATA) and the Globalization and Localization Association (GALA).
Tired of seeing "loan words" in your Tagalog/Filipino translations? Do not sacrifice the subtle cultural and social contexts that only Philippine-based translators can provide...your target audience and readers are your Ultimate Proofreaders--they can tell the BIG difference!
