So, Why Should You Choose BLS?
Finding a suitable language service provider can feel like an ordeal if you are not a linguist or don’t have much knowledge of the industry. At Business Language Services Ltd. (BLS), we understand this and will always endeavour to make the process as smooth and seamless as possible. Since BLS was established in 1990, we have gained a wealth of experience and expertise in all areas of translation, interpreting and other language services, so you can put your trust in us to provide the service you need, with the quality you expect.
First of all, we are not robots! At BLS, we are all translators and linguists. This places us in a uniquely privileged position to handle your requests with expert knowledge and understanding. We believe that translation is about building bridges of understanding between languages and cultures through conveying meaning, rather than simply translating something word by word. Our expertise benefits our clients at every stage of the process, from analysing the documents at the beginning of the quotation stage for a translation, to liaising with linguists and clients when queries arise, through to casting an expert eye over the final product.
BLS offers the assurance that our language services are carried out by highly qualified, professional linguists working within their specialist subject areas into their mother tongue. This ensures that your content will be linguistically and culturally appropriate for the market for which it is intended.
You can be certain that our linguists meet our core requirements of language and translation experience, subject matter knowledge (essential), skill, motivation and reliability. Our linguists, who are based around the world, are carefully selected and assessed based on their qualifications and experience, and their work for BLS is regularly appraised, so we will always strive to select the most suitable linguist for your job. This stringent approach is integral to our ISO 9001 quality management system.
At BLS, all our translation work is proofread by a second, independent linguist. We assign a Project Manager to each job, who will liaise with you and our linguists to ensure that your requirements are fully understood and that the final product is delivered on time, to your full satisfaction.
BLS works with all of the main file types and software formats and we invest in the latest technology in the translation industry. This allows us to manage any industry-specific terminology and ensure consistency between your documents and find a ‘voice’ that’s right for your company or product.
