Lockdowns, social distancing, closed shops – a global pandemic is not just an international health crisis, it also puts the brakes on our spending. In times like these, family, friends and society are obviously much more important. But now that the risk to public health is lowering, we can start to think about doing our bit the help the economy again.
Nimdzi is a major international market-research and consulting company. Each year they closely monitor the language industry and publish a list of the 100 biggest language services providers in the world. We are delighted to announce that Diction made the top 100 this year – and that so many fantastic clients place their trust in us.
In times like these, we all need to work together. We might be having most of our conversations and meetings virtually, but you can feel a real sense of community and togetherness everywhere. And that is exactly what we are focusing on right now.
The Slator 2020 Language Service Provider Index is a ranking of the world’s largest language service providers and language technology companies. This is a world populated with a large number of companies, many of which are large international corporations, so we are really excited to have made it onto the Challenger list.
We have been providing BMW Group Switzerland with translation and proofreading services for more than a decade. We started back in 2009, and won our first tender with the Group in 2017. Since then, all BMW Group Switzerland projects (including those for BMW Motorrad, MINI, Alphabet and BMW Financial Services) have come to Diction, giving us the opportunity to work on a wide range of text types.
Our language experts for corporate reporting have been celebrating recently after getting the news that Diction is now a Gold Partner of the Geschäftsberichte-Symposium, an event that is held annually by the Center for Corporate Reporting (CCR). The CCR is an independent centre of excellence for corporate reporting and the central point of contact for all key players in the corporate reporting community.
Since 2019, Diction has been the language services provider for ZF Friedrichshafen AG, an international company that provides mobility technology for cars, commercial vehicles and industrial applications.
Following an invitation to tender, Diction was selected as one of two exclusive language service providers for AMAG in January 2019. Our legal department in particular was able to score points with their expertise – as all legal translations for this major mobility provider are now our responsibility. Why were we chosen?
As ever, we deliberately didn’t celebrate the end of the year in December – we celebrated the new year in January. At the 2019 celebrations, there were once again some engaging speeches, fantastic food, a well-stocked bar, fabulous secret Santa gifts and an indefatigable DJ. Time seems to stand still in the beautiful Hundertwasser Market Hall in Staad – then all of a sudden, it’s three in the morning. Here are a few snapshots of the event:
Weleda fans at Diction are over the moon! Now, the famous logo isn’t just in our bathroom cabinets – it’s in our projects, too. Since summer 2018, we have been the preferred language service provider for this major natural cosmetics pioneer, and we’ve been getting in touch with our natural side to our hearts’ content: translating, proofreading and especially copywriting beautiful texts. What makes us such a good fit?
