You’re about to start looking for a translation agency for an upcoming, high-stakes project. This is something you’ve never done before, and all you know about translation is what you’ve been reading about the subtitle debacle regarding the Netflix series Squid Game. You google “how to find a professional translation agency”, and your usually calm demeanor is nowhere to be found as you reach for your coffee mug. You close your eyes for a minute and you quietly envision the horror of sending your project to an agency that provides lackluster service…or worse, that your project ends up a laughing stock. You blink a few times before taking another sip, and you hope that you can find a company that gets you: that understands what’s at stake, that understands your subject matter, that has your best interests at heart, and – do you dare even dream? – that cares about relationships like you do.
A company like Multilingual Connections.
Our role as a language solutions provider is multi-faceted, but one of the most important things we can do is to anticipate challenges in translation and ensure your peace of mind. We do this through understanding your unique project needs and bringing the right experts to the table for all types of translation services.
Challenges in translation needs are conquered by expert linguists
Our global network includes thousands of experienced linguists with a wide range of professional and linguistic backgrounds and specialties – the right professionals with the industry expertise to meet your business translation needs. Our professional translation specialties include over 75 languages, plus regional dialects. Our extensive network of expert linguists work together to deliver successful outcomes, no matter the complexity of the project. We pool our resources creatively to address specific project needs that happen in real-time and ensure the right expertise is on the job.
Quality fueled by culture and teamwork
We work extremely hard to create strong relationships so that all of our translators, transcriptionists, subtitlers, editors and other language professionals know they are a valued part of our global team. Many of our linguists have expressed that they feel a sense of connection to our company that, as freelancers, they haven’t felt with other companies. This kind of culture is contagious, and it flows directly into all of our work, including the quality of our final product.
Communication never stops at Multilingual Connections. When we’re not meeting as a team, many small groups are meeting independently. We keep our network up to date through regular newsletters and email, but we also use other means like Twitter get-togethers and virtual meet-ups. When geographies and social distancing factors are not in play, we also meet face-to-face across the globe as a great way of strengthening relationships.
A straightforward, proven approach – it’s all about our people
We’re proud of the variety of highly skilled, experienced professionals working with Multilingual Connections – people with different perspectives, backgrounds, and ideas. People who can address everything from professional corporate translation services to multilingual subtitling services and everything in between. The qualities we seek out in our independent contractors for language services are the same as we look for in our full-time team members: native-language fluency, industry expertise, as well as the softer skills we treasure like professional communication, punctuality, reliability, and the ability to establish and maintain good working relationships.
One important component of project success is the high level of dedication from our project management teams. While our linguists are crucial, the skill and expertise of our Project Managers is what delivers value to the project from start to finish. Creating a solid plan for each project ensures details are considered and common project pitfalls are avoided. Confidence in the quality of the work comes from this level of preparation and adherence to our high standards of professionalism.
Our core values run deep at Multilingual Connections and contribute to our foundations of pursuing growth and learning, both as an organization and as individuals.
Our roots in linguistic anthropology inform our approach that translation goes far beyond language – it’s about culture and nuance. This background continues to inspire us to look at what people are trying to accomplish with language and to ensure that our translation services help them accomplish their goals.
As more businesses pursue the benefits of globalization, forming a greater understanding of consumers worldwide – and their cultures – is an essential aspect of gathering the powerful insights needed for success. At Multilingual Connections, our international team of experienced translators stand ready to help you understand, engage and grow your multilingual audiences – local, national, or global.
