Process / workflow description

Our work process varies according to project. The subject matter is key in determining the level of proofreading, editing and final review in the QA process.

Generally we have two linguists on each translation project: an initial translator and a proofreader. For general texts such as website content, business correspondence and survey responses, this level of service is sufficient.

More sensitive documents such as certain legal and technical texts, safety regulations, usage instructions and patent applications will generally involve a final review by a third linguist, with approval of the client.

Quality process

Please see the notes on the work process above. The QA process will involve from two to four linguists, according to the sensitivity and nature of the material being translated.


Our company's capacity depends on the subject matter and language combination. Please contact us for more information on what is possible for your project.
