The results are in… Our Most Valuable Translator awards

We have had a great start to 2018, and would like to announce Web-Translations’ Most Valuable Translators for 2017. We’re extremely grateful to our network of linguists, whose extensive talents allow us to offer translation services across a wide range of industries. We’re privileged to work with many exceptional translators; our MVT awards showcase just some of these. Our 2017 MVTs have been chosen for many different reasons: some have made important contributions for a single client. Others have helped us out in time-critical conditions, or have gone over and above what was required in order to ensure the highest quality possible for a client.  It is a pleasure to work with these translators, all of whom are excellent communicators, provide well-researched and polished translations, and are skilled with translation technology.

Buying gifts for friends and family in another country is also a lot easier – no queuing at the post office! – and saves the cost of international postage. With your international eCommerce site, the concerns are very much the same as for English-language only websites, however there are a few additional points to consider for your foreign-language pages. Simply translating the English content is not sufficient.   Delivery charges […]
