Tomedes' reputation for quality lives and dies by the quality of our translators. As such, we have rigorous systems in place to ensure that we recruit and retain outstanding linguists who can deliver at the level required to meet our and our clients' expectations.
How we recruit translators
We recruit translators from around the world in order to build up a vast network of language pairings and skills. We use native speakers of the target language when we translate clients' documents, so we need a wide range of language pairings to be available in our network. We also match our clients' jobs to our translators' skills, to make sure that each client benefits from sector-specific knowledge.
As such, our recruitment process doesn't just assess each translator based on their linguistic ability, but also on the breadth of their experience and any specialist knowledge that they can demonstrate. We then award each job to the translator that most closely meets the requirements for that particular piece of work, in order to maintain our high quality standards at all times.
Network of expert translators
We keep tabs on where our translators live in order to ensure that they are assigned work that meets their local environment. This means that a translation into English could be assigned to a translator living in the UK, the USA, Canada or Australia, depending on which version of English suited the client's needs. It's our way of ensuring that our translators keep up to speed with local language developments from new vocabulary to evolving word usage.
In addition, our focus on expertise means that we have a host of legal translation experts, medical translation professionals, marketing translation gurus and more in our network. We take this experience into account when assigning every translation job, so that each of our clients can benefit from the services of a translator with specialist skills that are specifically suited to that client's documents.
