What’s your recruitment process for translators and subtitlers?

We receive a large number of CV's from translators every week. We review all of these and we ask those translators who meet our criteria to carry out a test translation. The test translation is assessed by one of our linguists and if it is of the required standard, we then keep the translator's details for work in his or her specialism. We always carefully match our verified translators against project needs, meaning your documents are translated by a translator who is both an expert linguist and has in-depth knowledge of the subject matter.

When selecting a translation team for your project, we may carry out a second round of testing using a sample from the documents you need translated. This is useful when working in a niche subject in order to select the most suitable translator. Of course this process may take a few days and might therefore not be possible depending on the timelines. We will discuss the options with you.
