Who translates at Translator L&F?
TL&F translators are the cornerstone of a unique model
The Translator L&F business model is driven by a totally non-negotiable rule: We only work with translators who have higher educational qualifications and proven professional experience in law or finance, or in a scientific or technical discipline (generally in large law firms, financial institutions or international pharmaceutical and chemical companies), or who have degrees in translation with appropriate subsequent training. The reason for this approach is our conviction, fully corroborated in practice, that language skills are not enough to ensure a good translation: the translator also needs a thorough understanding of the subject matter of the text to be translated. Being able to write well in one’s own language is no guarantee unless one knows what one is writing about.
