The world is aflutter with the power of machines. Robots are delivering your lunch order in cities around the US. Neural networks are driving major changes to automated translations. For decades, people have been predicting that humans will become unnecessary to the translation process.
Machines are great, but we believe in people.
We believe that our clients receive the best quality from people who love their jobs. We believe that our clients receive the best value when their translations are right the first time. We believe that our clients receive the best service from a team that never makes the same mistake twice.
So, today, we want to express our appreciation for the fantastic humans who make translations happen with trained neurons and hard work. These are devoted project managers, masterful linguists, savvy desktop publishers, and eagle-eyed quality control experts.
Thank you for all the irreplaceable things you do!
