Traditional translation agencies are a lot like factory farms. Translators are cooped up in front of their computers churning out translations all day, every day. Overheads are high in terms of rent, heating, lighting and cleaning premises, and salaries tend to be very competitive (read: low). The bottom line? Tired, burned-out translators who don't treat every project as individual, special and important. Also, an "earthbound" agency relies on the service of translators living in only one physical location, even though linguists know that living abroad corrupts the quality of one's language.
Because 101translations is Internet based, our overheads are very low. All of our translators are highly trained professionals, who work from home in their native countries and communicate with us via the Internet. This means that the quality of their language does not waver. It also means that we can afford to pay them more than if we had them lined up in rows of dismal cubicles. The result is that we can afford to pay for better, more motivated translators who do a better job for you, while keeping costs lower than most of our competitors'. At the same time, our clients can feel secure in the knowledge that if they order a document to be translated into Danish and Urdu, their translators are working in Copenhagen and Lahore.
We have chosen this business model because it's the smart choice. It's the smart choice for all of us at 101translations but, more importantly, it's the smart choice for you.
We are secure in the knowledge that our translations are the best out there, and that our translators are hardworking and fulfilled in their chosen profession. Our large database of regular, top-performing, well-fed translating staff speaks for itself, and the benefits of our business model are passed on to you.
