Organizational translation, simplified
Translation Doesn't Have to Be Such a Challenge
Translation spend within organizations comes from multiple departments. All companies struggle to find an all-encompassing, budget-friendly solution that satisfies the needs of internal stakeholders. Many companies that engage external translation partners face common challenges: slow turnaround times, inconsistent quality, brand voice dilution, highly variable project fees, and a lack of insight into and management of the review process.
Pressure builds. Friction arises between stakeholders trying to capitalize on opportunities and managers charged with centralizing and streamlining enterprise standards and processes. How can companies solve these challenges?
