Do you have in-house translators for every language?

We have full-time in-house translators and proofreaders for our main languages, and you can speak to them directly if you have any questions, which saves you a lot of time and hassle. We have experts in the various varieties of each language in our in-house teams. And, if you need us to edit a German text for readers outside of Switzerland, our Austrian and German colleagues in the German team know exactly when to use the ß and the correct format for business letters in both countries. If we do not have any in-house experts for the languages you require, your text will be read by one of our external native speakers, each of which undergoes a stringent selection process in accordance with the ISO 17100 standard.

What services do you offer in the various languages?

We provide editing, proofreading, translation and copywriting in all of our languages. Our clients usually send us projects in German, French, English and Italian. But we also have in-house experts for languages such as Chinese. We can translate and proofread texts from a broad range of different subject areas, including law, finance and marketing. Furthermore, we can work directly in your website’s CMS and optimise your layout in InDesign.

Does a native speaker always work on my text regardless of the language?

Yes. Each text we work on is translated or proofread in accordance with our four-eyes principle (unless you specifically request otherwise) – so there are always two people working on it. For translations, for example, a native speaker will carry out the translation, which will then be reviewed by a second native speaker or a person with excellent knowledge of the target language. The translator and reviewer work together closely. Native speakers also work together in close collaboration on all proofreading projects.
