The art and the technique

The work of intelligent minds

Translation involves the coming together of intelligent minds in order to facilitate communication across borders. To do this, translators are required to draw on expert language skills. However, if translation functioned on this skill base alone, it would be nothing more than transcription. VALUES and INDUSTRY BEST PRACTICES also count towards making translation a PROFESSION in its own right.

We are members of the Chambre Nationale des Entreprises de Traduction (CNET - French National Chamber of Translation Companies) and adhere to European Standard EN 15038 (Translation Services - Service Requirements). This bears witness to our commitment to promoting professional practices within our industry. We are also active members of the CNET’s Certification Committee which is currently working to establish a benchmark framework for certifying translation services in France.
