localization team

At Wordlab we protect and promote the art of translation. In keeping with our approach, our team members must meet the following requirements:

  • Extensive experience in translation and in their specialized field.
  • University Degree in Translation or equivalent experience.
  • Only translate into their mother tongue.

Furthermore, to ensure continuous excellence, our translators undergo testing and ongoing evaluation. This practice both guarantees the quality of work and contributes to the translator’s professional development
