It’s always been about the people. The keen eye, the experience. Stepping Stone only employs and works with outstanding individuals ensuring the best results for your project.
Project management is about coordination, teamwork, planning and control techniques to deliver a total end to end quality solution. Our managers are experience in delivering bespoke projects and managing teams within the country you are targeting. They are super humans with incredible skills, experience and patience.
While many translation companies boast of having thousands of translators located around the world, Stepping Stone relies on significantly fewer. Translation is truly an art, demanding a strong balance of linguistic and technical skills. Few translators possess the skills, quality and industry focus necessary to work on the projects we specialise in.
By using pre-qualified translators, we run into fewer mistakes and rarely run into scheduling conflicts. Experienced translators know how to manage their workload and their schedules. They also have the wisdom to raise the right project-specific questions early enough in the process to allow time for corrections and editing.
In compliance with our ISO certification, all translators have:
- 3+ years experience as a professional linguist
- Degree level education in linguistics or industry specific vertical
- 2+ years of subject or industry-specific experience
- Experience translating more than 100,000 words in the specified field or industry.
- Strong track-record of maintaining strict schedules and rapid turnaround.
